The I Heart My Face procedure has become popular among adults who want to improve their facial features by looking younger and more refreshed. Plastic and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Michelle Eagan may combine dermal fillers, neuromodulators, cryolipolysis, fat transfer techniques, or a surgical lift to achieve results.

There is no definitive answer about if someone is a good candidate for I Heart My Face. Factors like health, age, and skin quality will play a role. Today, New Orleans Plastic Surgery will explore what makes someone a good candidate for cosmetic treatment and highlight some key benefits of becoming a patient in New Orleans, LA.

What is the I Heart My Face procedure?

Aging causes a natural loss of volume in the face and neck. This leads to a wrinkled or saggy appearance around the eyes, cheeks, and jawline. I Heart My Face refers to a combination of treatments used to address all of these areas at once.

The I Heart My Face procedure may include dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers, a fat transfer, cryolipolysis, or lift surgery. Our cosmetic treatment can even focus on the tear troughs, temples, earlobes, lips, chin, and neckline. Dr. Eagan will create a personalized plan that targets your individual needs and goals.

What makes someone a good I Heart My Face candidate?

Many factors are considered before taking on a patient for the I Heart My Face procedure in New Orleans. These factors include:

  • Health: Patients will need to undergo a health evaluation to ensure that our techniques are safe for their needs. Please inform our team if you have underlying conditions that prevent you from undergoing treatments, like dermal fillers, cryolipolysis, or lift surgery. Medications and herbs that thin your blood can affect bleeding, bruising, and swelling. Having your blood pressure controlled is also important for best results.

  • Age: The I Heart My Face procedure is not only limited to the younger crowd. However, we may recommend different types of treatment for patients based on their age. For example, younger people may benefit from a fat transfer or injectables, while older patients could get surgery.

  • Skin quality: Patients with resilient skin generally have better outcomes than those who take longer to recover. Dr. Eagan will examine your current skin quality to determine your best options during an assessment.

  • Expectations: Patients who have realistic expectations are usually happier with their outcomes. Dr. Eagan will speak in-depth about your expected results to ensure you are satisfied.

Who is not a candidate for the I Heart My Face procedure?

On the other hand, not everyone is a good candidate for the I Heart My Face treatment. These include patients who have:

  • Uncontrolled health conditions, like diabetes or high blood pressure

  • Poor skin quality that prevents safe or effective cosmetic treatment

  • Recent procedures or surgeries that may interfere with results

  • Lifestyle choices that impair healing, such as smoking

  • Unrealistic expectations or a history of facial surgery with disappointing results
