What would make you a poor candidate for a face lift surgery?

What Would Make You A Poor Candidate For A Face Lift Surgery?

EXPECTATIONS THAT ARE UNREALISTIC

It is vital to have concrete and acceptable expectations, but not everyone realizes this. Some folks prefer substantial work that leaves no scars. Others make unusual requests, such as wishing to be able to look exactly like their favorite celebrity. Some may assume they have a deformity that needs to be corrected when there is none.

NO TIME TO REHABILITATE

Surgical procedures necessitate a recuperation time during which the patient must remain at home (or at a nearby hotel) and rest as much as possible. During the recovery period, no work, exercise, or socializing are permitted. Daily duties such as bending and lifting should also be avoided. Some candidates for plastic surgery have hectic schedules and refuse to take time off from work or their typical routine to heal adequately.

SMOKING

During and after surgery, smoking increases the chance of problems. Any skilled plastic surgeon will ensure that his patients stop smoking at least two to three weeks before surgery.

Before surgery, your surgeon may ask you to make some adjustments. Some surgeons, for example, require smokers to abstain from smoking for two to four weeks prior to surgery and not to smoke for at least two to four weeks afterward. This permits the body to recover from the surgery effectively. You should avoid secondhand smoke before and after surgery if you don’t smoke.

NOT AT ALL HEALTHY

If you have major health issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, a bleeding disorder, heart disease, or depression, you may not be a good candidate for cosmetic surgery.

You may not be a good candidate for cosmetic surgery if you are fat, smoke, or use excessive amounts of alcohol.

You and your surgeon should discuss your health, lifestyle (including exercise, drinking, and smoking), any illnesses you have, and any drugs or supplements you take before your operation. That discussion will assist you in determining whether surgery is a viable choice for you.

Make sure you tell your doctor about everything you’re taking, including over-the-counter vitamins and herbal supplements. Some of them may increase the risk of bleeding or interact with other drugs taken during surgery.

If a patient’s acute or chronic medical condition or overall health status renders them a poor surgical candidate, comorbidity can also affect the decision, preferring nonsurgical care.
