The “right” age for a facelift varies based on the individual. Men and women in their 40s, 50s and 60s sometimes undergo facelift surgery to treat wrinkles and other visible signs of aging in the face and neck. Meanwhile, people in their 20s and 30s may undergo facelift surgery as well.
At the SkinDC, Dr. Jonathan Cabin personalizes each facelift treatment to his patient. Dr. Cabin believes there is no such thing as a right age for facelift surgery. To determine if an individual qualifies for a facelift, Dr. Cabin requests a patient consultation. If Dr. Cabin believes a patient can benefit from a facelift, he then crafts a custom treatment plan. Or, if Dr. Cabin believes facelift surgery is too risky or will not help a patient accomplish his or her desired results, Dr. Cabin offers alternative treatment options. With this approach, Dr. Cabin helps patients of all ages revitalize their facial appearance.
What to Expect During a Facelift Consultation
Dr. Cabin uses a facelift consultation to learn about a patient and find out why he or she is considering facelift surgery. He also uses the consultation to evaluate the visible signs of aging in a patient's face and neck, including:
- Wrinkles under the eyes
- Excess fat deposits in the neck
- Nasolabial folds
Dr. Cabin also uses the Aging Arc during a facelift surgery consultation. The Aging Arc is a state-of-the-art tool that helps Dr. Cabin visualize how a person's face may look after facelift surgery and compare it to his or her current facial appearance. As a result, the Aging Arc allows a patient to see how facelift surgery will impact his or her facial appearance.
Additionally, Dr. Cabin reviews a patient's medical history during a facelift consultation. Dr. Cabin asks a patient to disclose information about any current medications as well.
What Happens If I Am A Good Candidate for Facelift Surgery?
If Dr. Cabin believes a patient can benefit from facelift surgery, he next develops a personalized treatment plan. Dr. Cabin believes there is no one-size-fits-approach to facelift surgery, so he creates a custom treatment plan designed to deliver the best-possible results.
Dr. Cabin spends time learning about a facelift patient, and he strives to learn as much as he can about each of his patients. He then uses this information to develop a facelift treatment plan to address visible signs of aging in a patient's face and neck.
Once Dr. Cabin develops a facelift treatment plan, he shares details about the plan with his patient. Dr. Cabin wants a facelift patient to feel comfortable with surgery and confident in his or her treatment plan. Therefore, Dr. Cabin encourages patients to ask questions before treatment.
If a patient decides facelift surgery is the best course of action, Dr. Cabin then executes the patient's treatment plan. Dr. Cabin works closely with a patient throughout the facelift treatment cycle. In doing so, Dr. Cabin ensures his patient can quickly and safely improve his or her facial appearance with facelift surgery.
What Happens If I Am Not A Good Candidate for Facelift Surgery?
Dr. Cabin has a simple goal: to help each patient achieve a balanced, natural-looking facial appearance. If Dr. Cabin believes facelift surgery's risks outweigh the treatment's benefits, he will recommend alternative treatment options.
In some instances, Dr. Cabin recommends Botox® in lieu of facelift surgery. Dr. Cabin uses small amounts of Botox in targeted areas of a patient's face, which reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. A typical Botox® procedure requires only minutes to complete, and Botox® treatments may be performed every three to six months.
Various facial fillers are available, too. Facial fillers like Voluma® and Sculptra® help rejuvenate the temples, reducing visible signs of aging in the upper face. Facial fillers may also be used for cheek augmentation, jaw contouring and other non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments.
