When a person decides that they are going to get a facelift, it is usually after a lot of thought. Usually, people will first try non-surgical cosmetic procedures such as BOTOX® and fillers as a way of maintaining their youthful appearance. However, there does come a point when these non-surgical methods just don’t work. They don’t produce the results that they did in times past. This is when people first start to give serious consideration to facelift surgery.
This surgery is ideally designed for individuals who have skin that is still relatively elastic. You’re going to get the best results from your facelift if you are in good overall health. The healthier you are, the quick your body will be able to recover.
Once you’ve decided to get a facelift, you should feel confident in knowing that you are working with a qualified plastic surgeon. This means that you’re working with someone who not only has experience giving facelifts, but has advanced qualifications in their profession. Look no further than the team of surgeons at Coastal Dermatology & Plastic Surgery.
Once you and our surgeon have decided that you’re ready for your facelift, it’s good to keep yourself informed as to what you should expect during the procedure as well as what to expect after the procedure during your recovery. For a set amount of time after your surgery, it’s recommended that you stay away from certain activities. We will make sure to provide you with detailed instructions regarding healing.
Something that is true about a facelift is that it will make you look younger. Research says that this procedure can make you look anywhere from three to 10 years younger, depending on the situation. The results of a facelift can last for a very long time. However, they are not permanent. Over time, gravity will take its toll, and you may need to have a touch-up procedure performed in order to keep your face looking its best.
