I’m a male in my late 60s and really want a facelift due to a number of unsightly wrinkles all over my face. However, I don’t want to risk looking like a fake and unnatural person after the surgery. How can you assure me that my facelift will look natural?

A natural looking facelift can be easily performed if the surgeon respects few important points. Your face has certain facial angles that cannot be altered or else you run the risk of being looking unnatural. One example is the angle of the mouth (mouth corner). I see many facelifts where the corner of mouth angle has been altered from a poor surgical technique. This can give a stretched-out look or a ‘fish mouth’ look. I would advise that you spend enough time researching about the surgeon and carefully examine his before and after photos. Feel free to read my previous blog about how best to pick your surgeon.
