If you’re considering a facelift…
A facelift can’t stop the aging process, but it does “set back the clock,” improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and re-draping the skin of your face and neck. Two other procedures, S-lift and necklift may also be an option for you. These are less invasive procedures, that have a little less recovery and cost. All these procedures address specific areas with different results. A consultation with Dr. Ricciardelli can help you decide which procedure is best for you.
Dr. Ricciardelli often uses platelet rich plasma or PRP for faster healing times and less bruising. All these procedures can be done in our AAASF operating suite. It is very comforting for our patients to wake up after surgery and see a familiar face. Our cosmetic care coordinator will be with you from the initial consultation through surgery.
The Best Candidates for a Facelift
Most patients are in their forties to sixties, but facelifts can be done successfully on people in their seventies or eighties as well. Bone structure and skin elasticity will play a role in your end result. A facelift can make you look younger and fresher, and it may enhance your self- confidence in the process.
