A facelift restores smoother, more pleasing contours to your face and neck. It can help you look as good as you feel, and perhaps feel younger than you are.
Am I a good candidate for a facelift?
Any one or combination of the following conditions may indicate that you are a good candidate for a forehead lift:
- a deep line, or fold, running from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth.
- jowls, or loss of a well-defined jawline associated with youthfulness.
- deep wrinkles in the cheeks and sagging of the "highlight" areas of the cheekbones.
- loose skin, wrinkles, vertical "cords" or excess fatty tissue in the neck.
A facelift can improve all of these problems. It cannot, however, correct conditions such as sagging eyebrows, excess skin and fatty deposits in the upper and lower eyelids, or wrinkles around the mouth. Dr. Elkins can provide further information if you have an interest in other procedures to treat these areas.
