A facelift, otherwise known as rhytidectomy, is a procedure that creates a more youthful facial appearance by smoothing and firming the skin. A facelift tightens the areas of the face and neck that are especially prone to the aging process. This is done by moving the facial tissues to a more favorable location and typically involves the excision of some excess facial skin. Face and neck lifts can help you to look up to a decade younger. With a skilled surgeon, your face and neck will look completely natural, but you will appear refreshed. Though, we cannot stop the natural aging process, this procedure helps to turn back the time a bit so you can continue to look younger.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR A FACE AND NECK LIFT?
During an initial consultation with your doctor, you can discuss your goals, concerns, and options so that you get the best results possible. You and your doctor will work together to make sure that you are ready for your face and neck lift. They will go over the procedure and healing time in detail so that you feel comfortable and knowledgeable. It is important to follow any instructions they give you so that you can get the best results. Since this is a complex surgery, you will need to have someone take you home and help you during your recovery time.
