Facelift and fat grafting
Am I a candidate for a #facelift?
there are three areas that we look at:
- skin surface
- laxity of skin an muscle

Start off with facial fillers--hyaluronic acids like Restylane or Juvederm. Voluma and Restylane Lyft are also good options. If you like the results of these fillers, you might consider facial fat transfers at a later date. Give yourself a few years and you may be a good candidate for a mid-face lift.
There are many options for you in the future.
Enjoy your family!

Unhappy with face at 25
- First of all you have a lovely face - so a great starting point.
- The photos aren't comparable because in one you are smiling, the other not.
- But there may be some early descent of mid-face tissues.
- The best first step is not a face lift but fillers.
- If these aren't good enough, then implants or a mid-face lift will be better than a standard face lift.
- Fat grafting results are difficult to predict - but can definitely be tried. (a lot of the fat absorbs and it isn't clear if results are permanent or last a few years.)
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
The main difference between the two sets of photos is the fullness in your cheeks. They look full and round in the earlier photo. The best way to restore this would be with fillers - like Voluma - or perhaps a fat transfer to the face. But a facelift would actually make things worse, by pulling the skin tighter and making the cheeks flatter. So, don't do a facelift.

The difference between the 20 and 25 photos appears to be volume loss in the mid face. Try a dermal filler like Voluma.
