If you are considering undergoing a facelift procedure, you probably have a number of questions about the entire process. What is the procedure like? What results will you have? How long will your recovery be? These are a few of the questions that you may need answered before making such a big decision.
What is a Facelift?
Dermal fillers and other treatments have recently been developed to help people with facial aging. Although they are effective at treating loss of facial volume and light lines and wrinkles, they are no substitute for a conventional facelift procedure.
The procedure is a surgical treatment that involves the rearranging of soft tissues under the skin to form a more youthful appearance. It can make dramatic improvements in your skin when you need treatment for sagging skin and poor facial contours.
One advantage to undergoing a facelift procedure is that your results are designed to last. However, it is important to keep in mind that the procedure does involve surgery and recovery time.
Would I Make a Good Candidate for This Procedure?
You may make a good candidate if you have loose and sagging facial skin, particularly when it is located along your jawline or under your chin. Those who have good bone structure and a strong jawline tend to make good candidates for the procedure. The procedure is able to address midface sagging, creases found under the lower eyelids, displaced or fallen fat, excess fatty deposits and sagging skin under the jaw and chin, and creases that run from the corners of the mouth along the nose.
What is the Consultation Process?
Your initial consultation is your first step toward enhancing your facial appearance. This is when we will make the determination if you are an appropriate candidate for the procedure. We will receive your medical history and evaluate your skin elasticity, wrinkles, and bone structure.
This is your opportunity to have any remaining questions answered to your complete satisfaction. We want you to thoroughly understand every step of the procedure so that there are no surprises at any point.
