Who Should Consider a Facelift?
While many men and women from the age of 40 and over have facelift surgery to attain a more youthful look, some people benefit from a facelift at a younger age. The best facelift candidates are:
- Physically healthy
- Do not smoke
- Have fairly good skin elasticity
- Have realistic aesthetic expectations.
Cosmetic problems such as loose skin under the chin or jaw, sagging in the midface, deep facial creases and a thin facial appearance may be corrected or reduced with a facelift. Many people combine their facelift with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as eyelid surgery or a brow lift.

During a facelift, Dr. Kim tightens underlying muscles, removes excess fat and re-drapes the skin for a more youthful look. Underlying facial tissue can also be redistributed to correct areas of the face that appear to be thinning due to the aging process. Though there are several different techniques for facelift surgery, all facelifts require incisions near the ears and along the hairline.
The method or technique Dr. Kim uses for your facelift will depend on your individual needs and desired results. There are three common techniques used when performing facelift surgery:
- Traditional facelift redistributes fat, repositions underlying tissue, lifts deep layers of the face and muscles and re-drapes the overlaying skin.
- Limited incision facelift is an alternative to a traditional facelift, allowing for the tightening of the jowls, cheeks and neck while using less extensive incisions.
- Neck lift addresses loose neck skin and fat under the chin, but does not correct cosmetic imperfections of the mid-face or forehead.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Kim will explain the benefits of each facelift technique in greater detail and help you decide which approach is best for your needs. She will also explain the recovery process you can expect after your facelift and address any questions or concerns you may have.
Why Choose Dr. Kim for Your Facelift
Facelift surgery is a highly technical procedure that requires not only surgical expertise, but also an intuitive understanding of the aesthetics of the human face. For Dr. Kim, natural-looking results are always the goal, and she strives to deliver results that offer a noticeable, yet subtle improvement in facial appearance.
Since each person’s face is unique, each surgery is unique as well. During a consultation, Dr. Kim will explain the benefits of a facelift in greater detail. She can also recommend treatments that may provide a more comprehensive approach to your goals, either as standalone procedures or in combination with a facelift.Back to Top
