Question

I am 67 years old and on Warfarin therapy.

Would I be eligible for a lower face lift, and if so, what are the risks?

Answer

It does depend on type of medical condition that has led to the prescription of warfarin for anticoagulation, and the levels of anticoagulation required for your safety. It also depends on the degree of correction that you would like to achieve with the procedure.

There are smaller interventions that would be more suitable, both in terms of safety and adaptability to anticoagulation and I would be happy to see you in consultation and advise accordingly.
