3 Questions to Ask Prior to Getting a Facelift

By Clayman | June 23, 2017

Aging can be a taxing experience on the body. It can be frustrating when you still feel like a 25-year-old at heart, but your outward appearance tells the world something different. Unfortunately, the face and neck are typically the first physical signs of growing older. When this happens, both men and women seek out facial remodeling to regain that positive self-image.

No matter your motivation, a facelift can be a beneficial way to minimize the visible signs of growing older. At Dr. Clayman’s Plastic Surgery and Miracle Spa, our experienced team can restore your natural beauty in a way that’s right for you.

How Can a Facelift Correct My Appearance?

A facelift is a surgical procedure that can improve your overall appearance in the face and neck regions. Also known as a rhytidectomy, a facelift is popular for its ability to give you a more youthful look. It is important to note that a facelift significantly slows the aging process.

Facial rejuvenation can provide many advantages if you are concerned about wrinkles, volume loss, and skin laxity. Drs. Loren and Mark Clayman have considerable knowledge when it comes to cosmetic enhancement, and can help restore many of your facial concerns, including:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Deep crease lines between the nose and mouth
  • Volume loss
  • Loose skin and/or excess neck fat

Depending on your cosmetic concerns, additional procedures can be combined with a facelift to further enhance your appearance. Eyelid surgery, for example, can help to rejuvenate aging eyes.

What Can I Expect Before and After Surgery?

Prior to surgery, one of our doctors will meet with you to examine the overall tone and texture of your skin. An individualized consultation will also help to determine the best way to achieve your facial rejuvenation goals.

Following the procedure, patients can expect swelling and bruising, which are part of the healing process. Dr. Clayman will provide you detailed instruction on your care after your surgery, so that your recovery period is as comfortable as possible.

A facelift can take several weeks to completely heal, but closely following the at-home instructions and coming in for follow-up appointments are crucial factors in a healthy recovery. Your patience will be rewarded with a more youthful face and a boost in self-confidence.
