Facelift San Francisco
Reversing the Consequences of Age
It is natural for the skin on the face to droop and the underlying muscles to loosen with age, and this effect is even more pronounced on the neck and the sides of the face in areas called the jowls. Thanks to medical advancements and state-of-the-art surgical procedures, there is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can help both men and women achieve a more youthful facial appearance and help them look 10-20 years younger. This popular procedure is a facelift.
Today, there are several variations of facelifts available, and each type varies depending on the degree of invasiveness, cost and other factors. Despite these variations, most facelift procedures involve similar elements and are administered under local anesthesia. For futher information it is best that you contact a skilled San Francisco plastic surgeon.
The Facelift Procedure
All facelift procedures are conducted in the private surgery center that our office is affiliated with in order to provide the highest level of comfort and medical care for our patients. During a facelift, our Board Certified plastic surgeon will create minimal incisions along your hairline and around your ears in order to lift your skin away from your face. This allows your surgeon to rearrange the underlying tissue, remove excess skin, and even remove fat with liposuction if necessary. After this is done, your surgeon will re-drape the skin over your face and close the incisions with sutures.
Facelifts are generally outpatient surgeries and recovery takes place at a specialized overnight care center or the patient's home. Many patients have minimal pain and discomfort following a facelift and can return to work within 10-14 days after surgery. Bruising may occur and can remain for a few weeks following a facelift.
While females are typically thought as ideal candidates for facelifts, many males chose to receive this procedure as well. Facelifts may be combined with other face and neck procedures such as brow lifts, eyelifts, or neck liposuction in order to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing result. Some patients also choose to receive rhinoplasty after a facelift to enhance the facial contour.
