Who is a Good Candidate for a Facelift?

Good news if you are considering a facelift; it doesn’t require much to be an ideal candidate for this procedure. If you are at a point in your life where your face is showing signs of aging such as loss of skin tone in the lower portion of the face, creases below the eyelids and along the nose, sagging around the middle portion of the face and drooping fat, then schedule a consultation to speak with Dr. Philpott to discuss your options. The average age range for this procedure is 40 to 65 years of age and is beneficial for both men and women.

Make sure to review any health conditions that you have which could impact you during surgery. Dr. Philpott will evaluate your needs and your medical history to make sure to determine what is right for you. Since this surgery will require general anesthesia, Dr. Philpott will first make sure that you are healthy enough to undergo treatment. With any surgery, it is important to have a clear idea of your goals and set realistic expectations.
