Question:
I am a 70-year-old woman and am wondering if I am too old for a facelift. How do you know if your skin has lost elasticity?

Answer:
It is not age or lack of skin elasticity that will keep you from being a good candidate for a facelift, but rather your overall health. If you are generally healthy and have no contraindications to surgery, then you should be a perfect candidate for surgery. Start by having a consultation with a board certified facial plastic or plastic surgeon to discuss your options.
