Women and men between the age of 40 and 60 are the most common face lift candidates but the procedure may be appropriate for those outside this age range as well. Face lift is best suited for people who have sagging, wrinkled skin, with thinning and descent of the underlying soft tissues. You should enjoy the results of your face lift for a number of years; depending on the degree of skin elasticity, soft tissue tone, and bone structure. It is important to keep in mind that while face lift surgery can create a more youthful appearance and increase self confidence, the procedure will not completely erase signs all of the aging process.
If you want to reduce some signs of facial aging but don't feel you're ready for a surgical procedure, you may be a good candidate for a "liquid facelift" using injectable treatments. Dr. Beckenstein will discuss this option during your consultation.
In most cases, facelift surgery requires several hours to complete, though surgery may last longer if other procedures are performed in conjunction with the face lift. Dr. Beckenstein performs this procedure for his patients in a local hospital. Face lift surgery requires attention to detail along with carefully designed incisions at the temples, around the ears, and neck. Dr. Beckenstein removes skin, trims fatty tissue, and suspends the soft tissues. You will be provided with much more detail about the surgical process at your consultation with Dr. Beckenstein. He wants all patients who are considering a face lift to be educated about the procedures he offers.
