Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding Face Lifts and Weight Loss

Q. If a thirty-pound overweight person gets a facelift and then loses weight, will another facelift be needed? I will be turning 60 soon and I have been losing and gaining the same 30 pounds for the past 10 years. I’ve been wanting to have a face lift but I have not been able to maintain an ideal weight.

A. Thanks for noting your concern. This issue affects many of us.

Including weight fluctuations, there are many other factors which affect cosmetic surgery procedures including sun exposure and weathering, skin care, chronic medical conditions, heredity, a supportive companion and timing in life.

If you feel you are at a stable weight and this facelift will make a significant improvement in your personal life then discuss it with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for a proper evaluation and recommendations.
