Plano residents learn what to expect from a face lift procedure
If you are plagued by fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, or excess skin, Noble Cosmetic Surgery in Plano, TX has procedural options for you. Dr. Patrick Obasi understands that not all face lift surgeries are the same. With the number of facial procedures available, there is something for everyone.
A face lift may address any of the following issues:
- Loose, sagging skin on the face or neck
- Deep lines along the nasolabial folds
- Loss of fat or volume in the face
Face lift surgery
After you have been prepped with anesthesia, the surgeon makes an incision. Traditional facelift uses an incision along the hairline starting at the temple and ending at the lower scalp. An incision under the chin may be made if there is extra skin on the chin and neck. For a mini lift, a shorter incision from temple to ear is used. An incision around the ear and lower scalp is necessary for necklift. Then, fat is sculpted and underlying muscle and tissue is repositioned. Skin is pulled and redraped over the new contours, with excess skin excised. Finally, the surgeon closes incisions using sutures or adhesive.
Immediately following the procedure, your face is wrapped in a bandage to minimize bruising and swelling. A drain may be placed to remove excess blood and fluid. Remember to follow your doctor’s orders after surgery for the best results and to reduce risk of complications. Most bruising and swelling subside within two weeks. Full results, meaning a face that feels normal and looks refreshed, generally occur within three months. Be sure to ask your doctor any specific questions regarding recovery.
