Universal facelift: "a rose is a rose is a rose" ignores each flower's uniqueness. Often patients present with a desire to "have the same thing done as my friend mary." they fail to realize that we are all made just a little, or a lot differently. Some have more fat, skin, sag, tan, wrinkles, muscle laxity, etc. Than others.This calls for the plastic surgeon to have experience with many different styles of facelift.

Only relative limits: It is worthwhile to review dr. Pollard's comments with which i agree. My youngest patient for facelift was 34yoa with a severe congenital facial asymmetry & my oldest "1st timer" was 82yoa. Both were in good health for their age & both did well. By the way, neither of them smoked or used other tobacco products which reduce blood flow to tissues & risk tissue loss.

Age,vein,artery,diab: As we age leg hair seems to become more sparse with thinner shafts. This may be accelerated by diseases that affect the large & small arteries & veins of the legs where either less blood flows in or the outflow of blood is too slow due to small valve leakage. Diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, venous stasis, heart valve problems, & skin diseases such as scleroderma may be involved.
