What is a Facelift?
A facelift is a very common cosmetic procedure that helps minimize or erase signs of aging on the lower half of the face. The facelift helps treat conditions, such as sagging skin and fine lines and wrinkles, and removes fat deposits from parts of the face.
The Best Candidate for a Facelift
Men and women between the ages of 40 and 60 are the most common facelift patients. Many older men and women appear haggard, tired and older than they actually are due to sagging skin that has lost elasticity. A facelift can leave you looking invigorated by tightening skin along the jawline and improving the elasticity of the skin. A facelift can help you look like the best version of yourself.
The Facelift Procedure
The facelift procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis in an office, hospital, or surgery facility. The procedure normally takes about two hours to complete. The exact manner in which the facelift will be performed depends on the agreement between you and your surgeon, as well as your own unique facial structure.
The Facelift Recovery
The first few days after your procedure, you may experience some fatigue. In about four days you should be able to be more active. You may find it more difficult to speak, eat and drink during your recovery.
It can take weeks or even months to completely recover from your facelift procedure, depending upon your general health. You should refrain from vigorous physical activity for up to three months following your procedure.
A facelift procedure can help you look and feel reinvigorated with a more youthful appearance. If you are a resident of Bloomfield, NJ, and are considering a facelift procedure, please contact New Jersey Plastic Surgery® to set up your own initial consultation.
