Facelifts can be performed by any surgeon, but for superior results, it’s best to consult an experienced plastic surgeon with thousands of hours in the operating room doing facelifts. Here’s a video that can help with your decision. Watch it here.
Our best facelift candidates are realistic about expectations, strictly follow the pre-and post-operative instructions and seek consultations with several plastic surgeons. Chemistry and trust are an important part of the equation, as are personality and bedside manner. It’s a good idea to look at a surgeon’s before and after photos of clients who have had facelifts.
Here are some other helpful tips if you’re contemplating a facelift.
- Gather information and learn about the benefits and risks of the procedure.
- It’s easy to think that plastic surgery will solve all your problems or make you look like a movie star. Understanding the limitations of surgery is essential for overall satisfaction with your results.
- Facelifts are not covered by insurance, so make sure you understand all the charges involved. Your doctor may offer financing options.
- Make sure you understand the risks and complications of surgery.

This is some great information, and I appreciate your suggestion to learn about the benefits and risks of a face lift before having the procedure done. I’ve been unhappy with how my age is showing in my face, and I’d really like to have something done to restore some of my beauty. I’d like a face life, but I’ll definitely make sure to do a lot of research and understand what that involved before I make a decision. Thanks for the great post!
Thank you Lillian. There are many options today instead of a facelift if that is not a good fit. Lasers are incredible now and the downtime is far less than the old lasers we used to use. Look into Contour or Halo lasers for example. WGS
Wonderful write up.Thank you for sharing it.
My pleasure. WGS
I like how you say that you want to consider the charges involved with a facelift. It would make sense to be sure that you can cover the costs before you actually get a procedure. In addition to this, you would probably want to find a plastic surgeon who has done the procedure many times before.
