Kansas City Facial Plastic Surgeon Describes the Typical Facelift Patient

Dr. J. David Kriet Outlines Common Attributes of the Average Facelift Patient and Discusses the Presurgical Approach He and Dr. Clinton D. Humphrey Take at University of Kansas Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

KANSAS CITY, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 01/28/14 -- According to the most recent statistics published by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, over 10 million cosmetic procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2012; a 3% increase from the previous year. With an interest in cosmetic enhancement still trending upward, Kansas City facial plastic surgeons J. David Kriet, MD and Clinton D. Humphrey, MD perform facelift surgery as one of the most popular procedures at University of Kansas Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

In a recent blog post on their website titled, "Is Facelift Surgery Right for Me?", Dr. Kriet discusses typical candidates for facelift surgery, as well as his approach to establishing expectations. According to the post, the following are some commonalities shared by his average facelift patients:

  • Healthy
  • Stable weight
  • Between 48 and 75 years of age
  • Presence of facial skin laxity
  • Appearance of stubborn fatty deposits around the face and neck

The Kansas City facial plastic surgeon says many of his patients begin considering facial rejuvenation in their mid-40's but typically only pursue non-surgical treatment options like BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers at that time. However, once those same patients reach their late 40's to early 50's, he notes that they often transition into considering surgical options such as the facelift. Furthermore, he adds that many patients opt to maximize the results of their facelift by combining both surgical and non-surgical procedures.

When asked about his approach to helping patients determine realistic goals and expectations for their facelift surgery, Dr. Kriet answers:

"During the initial consultation, a conversation regarding goals and expectations takes place. In most cases, we come to a mutual agreement with the patient on the treatment plan at this initial visit. We will then often have one or two additional consultations to confirm expectations and answer any questions the patient may have. Our goal is for every patient to feel like their needs have been met with our care."

Dr. Kriet also states, "Every patient is unique, and the facelift is modified accordingly for skin thickness, the presence of neck bands, fat accumulations, hairline position, chin position, and jawline." Ultimately, he urges anyone interested in the procedure to seek a board-certified facial plastic surgeon in order to help ensure the utmost degrees of safety and efficacy are achieved.
