Facelift / Necklift
The best candidate for a facelift is a man or woman whose face and neck have begun to sag, but whose skin still has some elasticity with bone structure that is strong and well-defined. Most patients are in their forties to sixties, but facelifts can be done successfully on people in their seventies or eighties as well, as long as they are in good health and physical condition.
A facelift can make you look younger and fresher, and it may enhance your self-confidence in the process. But it can’t give you a totally different look, nor can it restore the health and vitality of your youth. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon
