Question: I am a 74-year-old great grandfather and my wife thinks I am ridiculous but I don’t think it’s ever too late to improve yourself. I would like a facelift, possibly a facelift and a neck lift. I have droopy jowls, a turkey neck and skin on my cheeks. I would like to know if treating all of this in one time is possible for someone my age.
Answer: The procedure to rejuvenate the face can be done over a variety of patients and a variety of ages. In order to make sure you’re a good candidate for a surgical procedure, you must be evaluated with a surgeon who will take a detailed medical history. It is very important to make sure there are no contraindications to having a facelift. In general, any severe health problems, severe bleeding problems or severe chronic medical problems may mean that such a procedure is not in your best interest and may not be advised. If, however, you are in good health, a procedure to rejuvenate the face can certainly be performed. Rejuvenation of the face and neck are a very common request from patients and good results can be obtained. Sagging cheeks can also be lifted and improved. The best way to proceed is to consult with an experienced facial plastic surgeon who can do a complete history and make sure that there are no medical or anesthetic risks in performing these procedures. If your health is good, this procedure can be performed.
