Of course, each patient has his or her own reasons for considering a facelift. Our surgeon customizes their surgical plan to fit each individual patient’s needs. They look forward to working with you to develop the plan that will maximize your results.
Typically the initial consultation consists of answering all of your questions and concerns about the surgery. You and the doctor will discuss your goals and expectations as well as review your medical history. The doctor will review the details of the procedure as well and what you can expect before and after the procedure. We will answer questions regarding costs and post-surgical care. If you want to proceed, the doctor will perform an examination including breast measurements and go over the various types of implants available.
The decision to have a facelift is a very personal decision. Factors that come into play are genetics, overall health and diet. Men and women in their 40s and 50s are good candidates because their skin has sufficient skin elasticity to achieve an optimum result. Another “refresher” facelift may be appropriate in the mid-to-late 60s. Younger patients who’ve lost a significant amount of weight and have excess skin in the face and neck area may be good candidates.
To begin your facelift procedure, our surgeon will create short, minimal incisions in front of and around the ear, blending with the hairline. They will use sutures to restore skin tightness of the neck, and to correct the fullness of the angle between the jaw and the neck. Then, they will remove any excess skin or tissue of that area in order to provide a smooth and contoured appearance. Once they are finished, they will close your incisions.
With advances in facelift techniques, recovery is now quicker and more manageable than compared with other, older facelift techniques. In general, our surgeon’s patients are able to return to work within about 3 weeks of their procedure. While swelling and bruising is to be expected, our surgeon’s advanced face lifting techniques allow for less swelling and discomfort than other face lifting methods.
Our board-certified plastic surgeon has the highly specialized training to restore a naturally youthful look that lasts. If you want to learn more about facelift surgery and how it can help to improve your overall appearance call and schedule a no-obligation and personalized consultation.
