If you are contemplating getting a facelift, there are some important things you need to know before setting the date for surgery. The results of a facelift can be powerful and long-lasting, but it’s not the right procedure for everyone, so be sure to discuss all your options with your plastic surgeon.
What is a facelift?
A facelift or rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure that is done to reduce signs of aging in the face and neck. It involves tightening the excess skin and muscles, in addition to removing excess fat as needed.
A facelift is an individualized procedure. The level of improvement achieved with facelift surgery varies from patient to patient, as it depends on a variety of factors including body type, and underlying bone structure (learn more).
3 Things You Need To Know Before Getting a Facelift
- Choosing the right surgeon is the key to getting the results you want. Although choosing a skilled, experienced surgeon is important, it is also essential to look at the results of facelifts they have performed. Reviewing before and after photos of some of their past facelift patients will help in this regard.
- The facelift technique that is the best one for you. There are several facelift techniques available, and some are less extensive than others. The right technique for you will depend on the specific signs of aging that need to be addressed.
- The expected recovery time. Knowing the normal recovery time after a facelift will help you make adequate preparations, and take the necessary time off work.
