Facelift Candidacy

If you are dissatisfied with the way aging is affecting your face, and if you are searching for an effective, long-term way to reduce these signs of aging, you may be a good candidate for a facelift. Facelifts create smoother, tighter facial skin and underlying facial tissue.

In Northern Virginia, you can find out if you can benefit from a facelift from facial surgeon Dr. Daria Hamrah.

Facial Signs of Aging

Deep folds, sagging skin and descending fat deposits begin to mar our faces as we grow older. Taut, smooth facial tissues indicate youthfulness, and sagging facial skin is one of the most obvious markers of age. If you are dissatisfied with deep creases and sagging skin on your face, you may be a candidate for a facelift.
A facelift can improve the appearance of the most common signs of aging, including:

  • Fat deposits along the jaw
  • Jowls and skin sagging below the jaw
  • Creases extending from the nose to the corners of your mouth
  • Sagging facial skin and poor facial muscle tone

Sagging skin around the neck typically accompanies the aging process. Although not always included in a traditional facelift, Dr. Hamrah can perform a facelift variation that includes a neck lift.
People of many different ages are good candidates for a facelift. From your 30s to beyond, you may benefit from one of the facelifts performed by Dr. Hamrah if you are experiencing drooping facial skin and deep facial wrinkles.

The Right Facelift for You

Not everyone has the same experience of aging. The aspects of your face you are looking to improve will be different from other facelift patients. For this reason, Dr. Hamrah is experienced in several different facelift variations to achieve the most personalized procedure for the most satisfactory results.
The right facelift for you depends on a number of different factors, including the degree of skin sagginess and whether you want to improve creases near the eyes. If you are experiencing only minimal skin laxity, Dr. Hamrah can tell you whether you are a candidate for a mini facelift or mid-facelift. If you can benefit from a facelift that addresses sagginess of the brow, neck and face via multiple layers of your skin and muscle, Dr. Hamrah may suggest a 4D facelift.

Other Facelift Considerations

Other candidacy factors for a facelift include:

  • Good overall health
  • Interested in long-term facial rejuvenation
  • Understanding and acceptance of surgical risks
  • Prepared for surgical downtime and recovery

Additionally, if you are searching for a non-surgical, short-term treatment to address signs of aging, Dr. Hamrah may suggest one of our non-surgical forms of facial rejuvenation.
