What can a Facelift do for you?
A Facelift (Rhytidectomy) has the ability to improve the overall appearance of the face by reducing the signs of aging. A facelift helps to tighten the skin and muscles of the facial area, resulting in a more youthful appearance. It does not treat the lines around the mouth, nor will it improve defects or discoloration of the face.
If you are looking to for a more youthful appearance, a facelift may be the right procedure for you.
What to discuss with your surgeon
When thinking about facelift surgery, it is important to have realistic expectations and to discuss any questions or anxieties with your doctor during the consultation. In addition, it is also important to discuss why you would like to have a facelift, your medical history, including any diseases such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, high blood pressure, cardiovascular, or any circulatory disorders.
It is also important to discuss your surgical history and the use of medications, supplements, vitamins, alcohol, tobacco or drugs as these can all affect your facelift surgery, healing, and ultimately your cosmetic outcomes.
