Who is a good candidate for a facelift?

shutterstock_95618707-300x200 Who is a good candidate for a facelift? | Northern VirginiaFacelift cosmetic surgery, or rhytidectomy, is a procedure designed to reduce facial signs of aging. Rhytidectomy enhances the appearance of the face and jaw in a comprehensive way.

This procedure can help the patient achieve a more youthful appearance by reversing the ill-effects of aging, stress, and time.


A Surgical Artist

A skilled and proven cosmetic surgeon will perform facelift surgery in an artistic manner paying close attention to the intricacies of the face to make sure that the patient attains beautiful, dramatic outcomes with minimal scarring.

Besides traditional facelift, patients can also choose from various other types of facelift designed to treat specific facial areas.

Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides facelift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.


Good Candidates

Characteristics of good candidates for facelift will include:

Skin Elasticity

Ideal facelift candidates have some level of elasticity and suppleness in their skin.


Strong Bone Structure

A good facelift candidate will have a strong bone structure capable of supporting the outcomes of the facelift and contributing to excellent results.


Loose Facial and Neck Skin

Facelift candidates generally want to eliminate excess skin from the facial and neck area. A facelift can offer both tauter skin and a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles at the same time.


Facelift Surgery for Men

Facelift surgery can offer dramatic outcomes to both men and women. Men may choose to undergo this procedure to reduce signs of aging and achieve a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), within a five-year duration starting in 2010, the number of male facelift candidates has increased by 44 percent. The steps of the procedure remain the same for men and women.


Candidates for Different Types of Facelift

Traditional Full Facelift

A full facelift creates more complete outcomes for the patient. This procedure treats deep wrinkles beneath the eyes, loose skin in the cheeks, lines around the mouth, excess skin and fat in the chin area, and jowls among others.

Facelift plastic surgery involves a larger incision that typically extends from the temple, around the ear, and down the neck area.


Mid Facelift

A mid facelift tightens and lifts the underlying tissues in the eye and cheek area. The surgeon makes incisions that are similar to a full facelift in this procedure. However, the incisions go deeper enabling the surgeon to lift the muscles that a traditional facelift cannot treat.


Mini Facelift

In this procedure, the surgeon makes smaller incisions and the recovery period is brief. For this reason, a mini facelift is known as the “weekend facelift.” Similar to the mid facelift, this surgery targets smaller areas such as the lower cheeks, neck, and jaw.

This is a suitable procedure for busy mothers and working professionals who want to achieve facial enhancements with less downtime or for younger people seeking subtle improvements.
