Am I a Candidate for a Facelift?


As we age, our skin can make us appear older than we really are.  If you are unhappy with how your facial features have changed over time, you may be a facelift candidate.

Depending on your personal aesthetic goals, Dr. Mandraccia may also recommend combining your facelift with other procedures including:

The best way to determine your facelift candidacy is to receive a personal assessment from our Fort Myers plastic surgeon, but generally, potential candidates should consider the following:

  • Your overall health - Ideal candidates should be generally healthy and free of any major medical conditions.
  • The elasticity of your skin - If you have more flexible skin you may have better results.
  • Your bone structure - A well-defined facial bone structure can provide better support for facial alterations.
  • Your age - Most facelift patients are between 40 and 60 years of age, but both younger and older patients (whether 30 years or 80 years of age) are easily accommodated.
  • The potential results - Facelifts are intended to give you a more youthful appearance, helping you look and feel like a younger version of yourself. A facelift does not stop the aging process and it is not designed to fundamentally change your appearance.
