I have both hypertension and diabetes, but take my medication religiously. I would like a face lift. Am I unable to get one due to my medical conditions?


Age is relative and we always take into consideration the patient’s medical history. I have safely performed facelift surgery on patients with Diabetes and/or hypertension. It is important to get a very complete diabetic or hypertension history before proceeding. If someone were Brittle diabetic or severely hypertensive, it is probably not advisable. This could only be assessed during a consult and if the patient is a good candidate anatomically and medically, it is possible and safe to proceed with a facelift.
