A facelift is a popular cosmetic procedure today, with more and more people opting for it. It is paramount in today’s society to look your best, and a facelift helps you attain just that. Our team has helped countless individuals look more youthful and fresh-faced. Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about the procedure.
What Does a Facelift Entail?
A complete facelift tightens and lifts the face and neck by removing excess skin, tightening underlying muscles and then re-draping skin into a higher position. There are many procedures such as an SMAS lift, mini lift and even deep plane lift. The right technique for you will depend on a number of factors.
Is It the Right Option for Me?
A facelift may be the right option whenever you think your skin has sagged or your face looks older than you want it to look. Generally speaking, any age above 40 years old is a good age to get a facelift as long as you do not consume nicotine and are healthy enough to undergo surgery.
Is the Procedure Costly?
The cost of a facelift depends on the facility, experience of the plastic surgeon and the method used, among other factors. Facelifts are usually worth every penny spent when they return your youthful beauty.
What Does Treatment Day Look Like?
Once you show up for the procedure, our surgeon and medical team will follow the plan that you agreed on beforehand. There won’t be any surprises, as we’ll make sure in advance that you have realistic expectations.
How Much Time Does It Take to Recover?
Again, this will depend on a number of factors. During a consultation, we can give you a better idea of how long it may take for you to recover after the procedure.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Skin condition, skin type, age and the surgeon’s experience level can all affect the length of the results. Results last longer for some people than others, as results vary from patient to patient.
