If you are considering undergoing a facelift procedure, you probably have quite a few questions about the entire process. What kind of results will you have? How long will your recovery take? What are the risks involved? These are only a few of the questions that you may have prior to making such a big decision.
What Happens During My Consultation?
Patients have at least one consultation prior to undergoing their surgery. The initial consultation typically deals with assessing the problem from the patient’s point of view and discussing their surgical and non-surgical treatment options. At this time, the patient will learn of the potential benefits of cosmetic surgery, as well as any risks or complications.
How Should I Prepare for My Procedure?
Patients who respond best to a facelift tend to be in good overall health, are well-rested, and are well-nourished. You should also inform us of any medications you are taking, including nutritional supplements or herbal preparations. This is because certain substances can interfere with your surgery or recovery.
What Should I Expect During My Surgery?
After administering the anesthesia, our skilled surgeon can manipulate, tighten, or reposition tissues under the facial skin. In some cases, liposuction is performed to help reshape and recontour the area. The surgeon can then reposition the facial skin over your face to provide a more youthful appearance.
