Am I a Good Candidate for Face Lift Surgery?

Plastic Surgery in Weston, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Plantation and Davie, Florida


*Individual results may vary.

You may be considering face lift surgery in Ft. Lauderdale for any number of reasons, but still be unsure whether it is the right surgical procedure for you. Possibly you are starting to notice the wrinkles and lines on your face that are the natural result of aging, or you have heard several comments about having a tired appearance.

  • Face lift surgery may be able to help with these issues. Candidates for the surgery:
  • Should have a positive outlook and reasonable expectations for the procedure.
  • Are in good health, and do not have diseases that will interfere with the healing process.
  • Do not smoke, or are willing to quit before undergoing the procedure.

If these criteria match your own health conditions and outlook, then you can likely have the surgery without being at high risk for complications. However, there is still the question of whether a face lift will be sufficient to meet your plastic surgery goals. Facial surgery is a more invasive procedure with a longer recovery time than newer solutions like injectable fillers, but it also lasts for a longer period of time and delivers more dramatic results.

The question of whether you are a candidate for face lift surgery ultimately comes down to your own preferences, and what your plastic surgeon recommends for meeting them. At The Weston Center in Ft. Lauderdale, Dr. Jon Harrell believes in taking a personal approach, matching individual patients to the ideal procedure for their needs.
