The Ideal Facelift Candidate

Are you unhappy with the appearance of your face? Have aging, genetics, and gravity all conspired to make your skin wrinkly and saggy? Do you feel self-conscious or older than you really are? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be an ideal candidate for a facelift.

Additionally, to be an ideal facelift candidate you should:

  • Be a nonsmoker
  • Be in generally good health
  • Have good skin elasticity
  • Be prepared for a surgical procedure and recovery time
  • Have realistic expectations

A facelift is a surgical procedure that can dramatically improve the appearance of your entire face. At the Virginia Center for Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Eric Desman, can use a facelift to:

  • Remove lines around the nose
  • Remove creases around the mouth
  • Eliminate jowls
  • Remove fat and skin from the neck and chin

With a facelift procedure, Dr. Desman can remove up to 10 years from your face, providing you with a firmer, more youthful appearance that can last for several years.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Desman can help you determine if this procedure is right for you. If you live in or around Washington D.C. or Northern Virginia, including Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, Fairfax County, and Springfield, Virginia and would like to learn more about your candidacy for a facelift procedure, please contact the Virginia Center for Plastic Surgery to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Desman today.
