Frequently Asked Questions About Facelift Surgery
You should quit smoking and stop taking medication that thins the blood for one month before your surgery, especially aspirin. This helps improve circulation, promotes better healing, and reduces bleeding issues. Drink a lot of water to hydrate your body in the days leading up to surgery, and get plenty of sleep the night before your surgery. Plan to have a friend or family member help you for the first few days following your procedure. Private duty nursing is also an excellent option.
It is common to combine other facial procedures to save time and money. Procedures that are often combined with a facelift include:
- Neck Lift usually part of a facelift to correct sagging skin in the neck
- Eyelid Surgery to remove excess eyelid skin and bulging fat ‘bags’
- Fat Grafting from your hips to the central face and eye areas to restore youthful fill
- Lateral Brow Lift to correct sagging outer brows and freshen the eye appearance
Before and after a facelift, injectable fillers made of hyaluronic acid are helpful for maintenance by filling small lines and adding volume that may have been lost with age. Also, BOTOX® Cosmetic will treat “crow’s feet” and frown lines.
Facelift surgery focuses on correcting the sagging skin and muscles of the mid- and lower face, from the cheeks to the jawline. Neck lift surgery addresses sagging in the neck. These two surgeries are often combined into one procedure to achieve the best overall facial rejuvenation.
Facelift surgery is among the procedures that provide the longest-lasting results. Although facelift surgery can take years off your appearance, it cannot stop the aging process. Non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments can help maintain and enhance the results you desire.
