Are you a good candidate for a facelift?

This procedure can help the patient achieve a more youthful appearance by reversing the impact of aging, stress, and environmental factors.

A skilled and experienced facelift surgeon will perform the surgery in a manner that preserves the harmony and balance of the face while accomplishing excellent results with minimal scarring.

Double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Geoffrey R. Keyes provides facelift to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Bakersfield, California, and surrounding communities.


Suitable Candidates

Skin Elasticity

Ideal facelift candidates have reasonably elastic and supple skin.

Strong Bone Structure

A suitable facelift candidate will have a strong bone structure which can offer support to the outcomes of the procedure and contribute towards excellent results.

Sagging Facial and Neck Skin

Facelift candidates generally seek the removal of excess skin from their face and neck areas. A facelift provides such patients with tauter skin and a reduction in the appearances of wrinkles at the same time.


Facelift Surgery for Men

Facelift plastic surgery offers dramatic results to women as well as men. Men may consider this procedure to reduce signs of aging and achieve a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), within the five-year period starting in 2010, the number of men receiving facelift surgery has risen by up to 44 percent. The steps of the procedure remain the same for both genders.


Facelifts for Seniors

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) indicates that more people above the age of 50 years are seeking plastic surgery to enhance their appearance.

Prior to approving the plastic surgery, the surgeon will evaluate each patient’s particular circumstances, including their age. Older people considering the procedure should understand that a facelift will not help them look 20 years younger, but it will certainly enable them to appear more youthful.


Candidates for Various Types of Facelift

Traditional Full Facelift

A traditional facelift provides the patient with more complete outcomes. This procedure addresses deep wrinkles beneath the eyes, loose skin in the cheeks, lines surrounding the mouth, excess fat and skin in the chin area, and jowls. A traditional facelift involves a significant incision that typically extends from the temple, around the ear, and down to the neck area.

Mid Facelift

This procedure targets the underlying tissues in the cheek and eye area. The surgeon uses incisions similar to the traditional facelift in this surgery. However, these incisions penetrate deeper enabling the surgeon to lift and tighten the muscles that a full facelift cannot treat.

Mini Facelift

The mini facelift involves the placement of smaller incisions as well as a shorter recovery period. For this reason, it is called the “weekend facelift.” This procedure targets a smaller site such as the lower cheeks, neck, and jaw.

This is an ideal procedure for busy mothers and working professionals who want to achieve improvements in their facial appearance with less downtime or for younger patients who seek subtle enhancements.
