Who is a good candidate?

If you’re considering a deep plane facelift to rejuvenate your appearance, it’s important to understand who the ideal candidates are. Generally speaking, good candidates for this procedure are men and women who are experiencing visible signs of facial aging, such as:

  • Sagging and drooping skin
  • Loss of facial volume or a flattened appearance to the cheeks
  • Jowls, heaviness or boxiness of the lower face
  • Fullness, lax skin or muscle bands of the neck

Candidacy is not solely based on age and the procedure can be performed on individuals at various maturity ages from the 30’s through to 70’s. 

To undergo this surgery, candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations of the outcome. During your initial consultation with Dr. Honeybrook, he will evaluate your medical history, current health status, and aesthetic goals to determine if a deep plane facelift is the right choice for you. 

A deep plane facelift can be an effective solution for many common facial aesthetic concerns, such as skin laxity, nasolabial folds, smile lines, marionette lines, sagging cheeks, jowls, and neck bands. During your consultation with Dr. Honeybrook, he will listen attentively to your concerns and goals, working with you to create a personalised treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and lifestyle.

Note: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risk. These risks will be discussed with you in detail during the consultation. For further information on risks please refer to the patient resources section of the website.
