The Ideal Facelift Candidate

Many people think facelift surgery is only for those with significant signs of aging. This simply isn’t true. In fact, the various modern techniques offered by Fort Myers facelift surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña can be used to address even minor signs of aging – producing results that take years off of your face and last for over a decade.

If you are unhappy with the way aging has impacted your face and/or neck, Dr. Peña would be happy to meet with you for an informative one-on-one consultation. During this meeting, Dr. Peña will listen to your concerns, assess your facial features,and help you determine which facelift surgery option will best restore a youthful and attractive appearance.

Facelift Candidates

A facelift addresses wrinkles along with sagging or loose skin and excess deposits of fat. Some facelift techniques also address issues such as double chin or those higher up such as sunken cheeks. The best candidates for a facelift should be experiencing one or more of these common cosmetic imperfections.

In addition, to be an ideal facelift candidate, you should be:

  • Aware of all of your options
  • In generally good health
  • A nonsmoker or prepared to quit for good
  • Prepared for a surgical procedure
  • Ready to commit to a brief yet restrictive recovery period
  • Willing to closely follow Dr. Peña’s pre and postoperative instructions

It is also important that you understand that a facelift, while capable of producing remarkable results, does have its limitations. Dr. Peña will discuss your expectations during your facelift surgery consultation to ensure you understand what can realistically be expected from this procedure.

Facelift surgery is an incredibly effective way to address visible signs of aging, but it is certainly not right for everyone. Dr. Peña is a board-certified plastic surgeon with over three decades of experience. He is prepared to listen to your concerns, inform you of your options, and help you determine if facelift surgery is right for you.
