About Face Lift Surgery Candidacy in Palm Springs

As people age, the natural elasticity and tightness of their skin decreases, leading to the formation of wrinkles and other age-related skin problems. Changes such as sagging skin can make a person appear old and tired even if the person doesn't feel that way. Although topical skin care treatments can lessen fine lines and wrinkles, little can be done to treat excess, loose facial skin short of facelift — a cosmetic procedure that surgically lifts and repositions facial tissue into the desired position.

Facelift surgery procedures are most commonly performed on Palm Springs patients in their 40s, 50s and 60s to achieve a more youthful appearance; however, patients in their 70s and 80s have also had successful results, as have those in their 20s and 30s. In general, any patient with wrinkles, aging lines or sagging skin is potentially a good candidate for a facelift. Younger plastic surgery Palm Springs patients tend to prefer more delicate procedures such as thread lift, which provides a less drastic, natural-looking result.

Facelift Variations in Palm Springs

Thanks to advancements in surgical techniques, Palm Springs facelift surgeons perform variations of the procedure to treat each patient's specific needs and limit the recovery period. Some of the most widely requested facelift variations include SMAS lift, deep plane lift, short scar facelift, endoscopic facelift and thread lift. During an initial consultation, your Palm Springs facelift surgeon will help you determine which technique will best fit your needs.

In many cases, Palm Springs patients combine a variety of procedures with their face lift, such as a neck lift, eyelid lift surgery, brow lift and/or facial liposuction, to achieve a fully enhanced facial appearance. They may also consider minimally invasive treatments to complement their new look, including Latisse eyelash enhancer, microdermabrasion and Juvederm or Botox injections.

Your Palm Springs Plastic Surgery Consultation Appointment

The first step in the facelift process should be a one-on-one consultation with a board-certified Palm Springs plastic surgeon. A cosmetic surgery consultation serves as an interview from which the patient decides whether to hire that particular plastic surgeon. This initial appointment is the perfect opportunity to obtain important information, express any aesthetic desires or concerns, and ask questions. The meeting is equally important for the plastic surgeon, who will use this time to find out about your medical history and aesthetic goals and to recommend procedures to get you closer to your desired look. At this time, you will also learn about any risks associated with your plastic surgery and recovery.
