Who is a candidate for this procedure?
You may be a good candidate for this procedure if you have early or moderate signs of facial aging. Typically those involve soft tissue loss in the midface with mild to moderate wrinkling of the skin elsewhere. Patients who are good candidates will sometimes have deep nasolabial fold areas which are improved as well. This technique is often used together with neck rejuvenation for complete results. Frequently this can all be accomplished in the office under local anesthesia.
Also please keep in mind that the “stem cell facelift” restores lost volume of the midface and “lifts” the upper face rather than “pulling” the skin as in the traditional surgical facelift. It does little to correct jowling, which results from soft tissue descent. If you have significant jowling our doctors will recommend a treatment plan suited for your individual needs as they evaluate your photos.
