If you have decided that facial surgery is something you want to pursue, there are some things you need to know before getting a facelift. A facelift is a surgical option for individuals wanting to address signs of aging around the cheeks and jawline, as well as the upper portion of the neck.
What can a facelift do for you?
A facelift or rhytidectomy will tighten loose skin on the jawline and neck, restore contours to the cheeks, and reduce the appearance of deep creases around the mouth (learn more).
Things You Need To Know Before Getting a Facelift
- Selecting the right surgeon is important
Select a surgeon that has good technical skill and aesthetic judgement. A surgeon with good aesthetic judgement is better able to make correct decisions about critical issues such as readjusting the fat deposits, and tightening the skin, to ensure natural looking results. Patients should also evaluate before-and-after pictures of the surgeon’s previous facelift patients, to determine if they like the final results.
- What facelift technique will the surgeon use
A facelift is no longer simply about tightening the skin. Modern techniques are customized to suit the areas of concerns for each patient, so that results are long-lasting, and look natural.
- What is the normal recovery time
Patients should be aware of the length of the recovery time, as well as what to expect during recovery, so that they can make the necessary preparations.
