Dr. Oren Lerman: A facelift operation might be the right operation if you're bothered by the signs of aging in your face and neck. Some of these signs include, sagging of the skin, deep wrinkles beneath the eyes, or deep fold between the cheek and the jawline. Also, with a facelift, sometimes we do a neck lift at the same time. Signs of an aging neck include baggy skin, or fat beneath the chin, or folds in your neck. Sometimes people are concerned that they have what appears to be a double chin, even though they are not overweight. A facelift and neck lift can correct these areas. A facelift can also correct fat that has fallen or is displaced, or loss of muscle tone in the lower face that creates jowls. When we do a facelift, we try to elevate the soft tissue of the face, and improve the volume of the cheeks, and give that more youthful appearance. You're a good candidate for a facelift if you're physically fit, if you don't smoke, and you have a positive outlook and realistic expectations about improving your appearance.
