Facelift Plastic Surgery Beverly Hills
One of the most common procedures done today, facelifts, are still being done as much if not more than ever before. Facelifts, or rhytidectomy, are meant to give the face a more youthful appearance by removing any excess skin on the face and tightening the underlying tissues. It’s important to remember that the effects of a facelift aren’t permanent and therefore shouldn’t be thought of as such. The reason that a facelift isn’t permanent is because the face will continue to age as time goes on, but having a facelift done is a long-lasting solution to appearing younger.
Ideal Facelift Candidates
- Sagging in the midface
- Deep creases along the nose and/or corner of the mouth or below the eyelids
- Any fat that has fallen or displaced
- Loose skin under the chin or jaw
- Loss of muscle tone in the lower jaw
Any of these reasons can be good for thinking about having a facelift done. Having a facelift done is a simple procedure that will have you feeling and looking good for a long time after. Although recovery usually takes two to three weeks to feel to return to normal it may take up to 6 months for incision lines to mature. Using cold compress on your face when you return home from surgery will help with swelling and bruising. Your face will be wrapped in a bandage as well in order to minimize these after effects as well.
If you are considering having a facelift done, please talk to a plastic surgeon about what to expect for results and what you can hope to achieve with your personal rhytidectomy
