Who should consider a facelift surgery (rhytidectomy)?
This procedure is performed to remove visible signs of the ageing process. As long as you have a healthy sense of realism about the procedure and are in good health then this is a good choice of surgery.
This is commonly performed on patients aged between 40 and 70 although it can benefit people aged over 70. Both men and women have facelift surgery but it has been noticed that men are at greater risk of blood clotting post-surgery as they posses more blood cells in their faces.
If you are a man who is considering this surgery then it’s worth bearing this in mind.
The best candidates for surgery are those with some skin elasticity, a well defined bone structure and loose skin on the face and neck which would benefit from being tightened up.
Our skins are vulnerable to the effects of ageing, gravity, stress and environmental factors such as the sun. Skin loses its elasticity and tone and starts to sag. As long as your skin has some elasticity then there is no reason why you shouldn’t consider this surgery.
Most patients are very happy with the results and notice that the effects do last a long time. However, the skin will continue to age and so you may need to repeat this procedure after 10 years or more.
A facelift can be combined with other forms of facial surgery. These include neck lifts, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), brow lifts, rhinoplasty(‘nose job’) and chemical peels. There are several types of facelift surgery.
