Perhaps you’ve had the thought because you’ve noticed that your skincare regimen isn’t really targeting sagging skin. Maybe you’ve noticed more wrinkles around your eyes, and you hate looking constantly fatigued (even when you get your eight hours). Either way, you’re looking for an effective solution that can help you feel more comfortable in your skin again.
A facelift could help with that – but how do you know if you’re a good candidate for this procedure?
Good Candidates For a Facelift
In general, the best candidates for a facelift are healthy people – we’re talking nonsmokers who have realistic expectations for their procedure. If you are a smoker, you’ll be asked to quit smoking for at least a month before undergoing the surgery.
In terms of aesthetics, the best candidates for a facelift procedure are those people who have the following aging symptoms:
Sagging skin, especially around the neckline and jowls
Heavy wrinkles around the eyes
Sagging eyelids (upper and lower)
Significant bags underneath the eyes
Forehead wrinkles and lines
If you meet the above criteria and you’re in good health, you may be a good candidate for a facelift procedure.
What to Expect From Your Facelift
The facelift surgery is performed under general anesthesia and requires small incisions along the hairline and behind the ears (this hides the scars better). Your plastic surgeon will access your facial muscles from these incisions; the muscles will be pulled taut to correct any facial sagging. Additionally, excess tissue will be trimmed and removed to show off your new results.
Speaking of results, you should expect swelling and bruising for the first few weeks after the surgery; your final results will be visible within three to six months.

My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.
Yo estoy super contenta y satisfecha con los servicios recibidos en El Paso Cosmetic Surgery. El Dr. Sozer es muy profesional, me dio muchísima confianza desde el principio y contesto todas mis dudas y preguntas. Todo su personal es muy amable, las chicas en recepción y las enfermeras muy serviciales. Absolutamente creo que es el mejor lugar para obtener una cirugía cosmética. Estoy super contenta con los resultados de mi Mommy Makeover y de otros tratamientos que obtuve en mi rostro, sobrepaso mis expectativas en todos los aspectos. Gracias a Dr. Sozer y a todo su personal por hacerme sentir una mamá mas joven y bella!!
