When considering any facelift procedure, patients should not be smoking or on any blood thinners. Any recent cardiac or respiratory history  may be contradictory.If a patient has a detailed past and/or present medical history may require a medical clearence from  your primary care physian.

How do we know if you are a candidate if we don't understand the LL procedure is?

If you are trusting enough to have a LL surgeon do your surgery, I would trust them to conduct a medical evaluation of your health and determine if you are a suitable candidate.

This is not a procedure which the rest of us plastic surgeons understand because the techniques are unpublished and not widely available to evaluation and testing. Therefore, we hesitate to comment on a procedure we don't understand.

This would be similar to asking if you are allergic to a food product whose ingredients were unknown to you.
