Is a Facelift Ideal for Me?


A facelift improves facial signs of aging. Whether the procedure is ideal for you depends on your cosmetic facial goals. A facelift may be right for you if you have:

  • Sagging, drooping facial skin
  • Jowls sagging around the jaw line
  • Poor definition between the chin and neck
  • Deep lines extending downward from the nose to the corners of the mouth

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and migrates downward. The contour of your jaw will become less and less defined, and sagging skin may create a tired, haggard facial appearance. To restore a youthful profile and facial appearance, a facelift can rejuvenate these aspects of aging.

There is not really a single, ideal candidate for facelift surgery. If you are dissatisfied with the effect of aging at any age, experienced plastic surgeon John J. Corey can determine if a facelift is the best way to fulfill your facial goals. Generally, you should be in good overall health before this procedure.

If you live in Scottsdale, Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, Phoenix, Arizona, and want to find out if a facelift is right for you, please contact John J. Corey Aesthetic Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation.
