Facelift: Q&AAsk a Question
How Old is Too Old for a Facelift Plastic Surgeon?
I had large scale liposuction and upper eyelid surgery 13 years ago from a board-certified plastic surgeon. I got great results and had no complications. Now, I'm ready for a facelift. I would love to use the same surgeon, rather than shopping around and trying to figure out who I should trust and have confidence in. However, the surgeon is now in his late '60s. How much manual dexterity and stamina is involved in a facelift? Would it be better to use a slightly younger surgeon?
It all depends on the surgeon
Look at recent before and after photos
Experience is a great teacher.
The quality of his work should determine if he is the right surgeon for you.
Younger is not necessarily better.
Experience only comes with time in the O.R.
Late 60's too old?
