Am I a Candidate for a Facelift and Neck Lift?
Patients who are concerned with their facial aging and are in good health may be candidates for facelift and neck lift surgery. Comfort and safety are our priority when providing a surgical plan, so a consultation is required to discuss your aesthetic goals.
Communicating your medical history, concerns, and questions about facelift and neck lift surgery is essential during your consultation. Your surgeon will evaluate your facial anatomy and make recommendations that align with your preferences and desired outcome.
What Does the Facelift and Neck Lift Procedure Entail?
Facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Hyman, performs face and neck lift surgery under either local or general anesthesia. Concealable incisions are used, leaving almost imperceptible scars. The deep-plane facelift technique is his preferred method, which repositions the deeper tissue layers of the face that have descended with age.
How Long Is the Recovery?
A light headwrap is used for the first day or two following surgery. Drains are typically not needed. Post-operative care instructions will be provided and should be carefully followed. Mild bruising, swelling, numbness, and slight discomfort for the first few days is normal. Keeping your head elevated can help reduce swelling. Prescription pain medications are provided to ease discomfort during the healing process. Many patients can resume work and daily activities after seven to 14 days.
What Are the Results?
Your face and neck skin should appear tighter and smoother. The improvement in the neck can span to the upper chest, the jawline is improved, as is the nasolabial fold. Facial rejuvenation is designed to restore a naturally youthful appearance.
