Richmond Plastic Surgeons Reveal Ideal Timing for Facelift Surgery

Dr. Steven J. Montante and Dr. Neil J. Zemmel of Richmond Aesthetic Surgery Discuss Facelift Benefits and When Patients Should Consider This Facial Rejuvenation Procedure

RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwired - Oct 27, 2015) - According to Steven J. Montante, MD and Neil J. Zemmel, MD, FACS, the face is an integral component of a person's identity. Used for conveying thoughts and emotions, these board-certified plastic surgeons in Richmond say the appearance of the face is a vital communication tool as well as an outward reflection of the individual. Since the face is also one of the first areas of the body to show signs of age, procedures such as facelift surgery are among the most popular at their private practice.

Drs. Montante and Zemmel note: "Traditionally, patients have waited until their 50s or 60s to undergo facelift surgery." However, they also say the average age of a facelift patient is beginning to change. As more and more people are turning toward treatments such as injectables, fillers, laser resurfacing, and skin care products to treat the early onset of fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss, patients can wait longer to address these concerns with surgery.

While nonsurgical options can certainly help patients maintain a more youthful appearance, the Richmond plastic surgeons highlight that there is no replacement for facelift surgery. Only a facelift can rejuvenate the deep layers of facial tissues and muscle. By repositioning soft tissues, tightening the underlying facial muscles, and redraping the skin, Drs. Montante and Zemmel can help their patients "turn back the clock" and take years off of their appearance.

Ultimately, Drs. Montante and Zemmel say the best time to get a facelift will vary from patient to patient. Men and women from their 30s to their 70s and older have achieved successful results with facelift surgery. To determine if a patient is an ideal candidate for facelift surgery, Drs. Montante and Zemmel recommend visiting a board-certified plastic surgeon for a one-on-one consultation.
