Advice for 43 Year Old Considering Facelift?
I am a 43-year-old (athlete) with facial volume loss, a turkey neck, and signs of jowls just beginning to form. I recently had a consult with a plastic surgeon who recommended a deep plane facelift, as it would give the best and longest lasting result. He also told me a facelift at this age would ultimately hold up better than not having it done, as the muscles and other deep facial structures would be fixed in place, thereby making them more resistant to the natural downward migration of tissue in the aging process. Is this true?
