Why shouldn’t I have facelift surgery (rhytidectomy)?

If you are in good health, have realistic expectations and have a strong, defined bone structure with some skin elasticity then you are a good candidate for a rhytidectomy.

Your suitability will be discussed with you and your surgeon during the consultation. Your surgeon will ask you about your medical history and provided there are no underlying health problems, then will consider you for this procedure.

He or she will have a set of criteria for cosmetic surgery and will use these along with other factors to determine if you’re suitable or not. You need to ask yourself why you want this surgery and what you hope to gain from it. It has been found that those patients who are realistic in that they know it cannot guarantee perfection but want to improve their appearances gain the most from this surgery.

A rhytidectomy is an invasive procedure which places a fair degree of trauma on the body. This means you will take time to recover and to heal. So, it is important that you are in good physical and mental shape beforehand.
