I’ve been a smoker for the past 50 years of my life. I’d like a face lift to get rid of my deep wrinkles. Would it be possible to really eliminate their appearance?
A face lift does not remove wrinkles; it tightens the jawline and neckline. With some modification, it can also raise the cheeks. The best treatments for deep facial wrinkles related to smoking and sun exposure at a deep phenol peel or carbon dioxide laser resurfacing. However, you should know that you must stop smoking for 6 months before the procedure, and results are more complete for non smokers.
