Consider an Austin Facelift
It can be hard to combat the signs of aging on our faces, from the wrinkles to the sagging skin and fine lines. There are many products out there and many procedures such as fillers and skin resurfacing treatments that can help fight the signs of aging, but sometimes those only fix a few of the problems. If you really want to take years off of your appearance and eliminate all of the lines and wrinkles from your face, consider getting a facelift at Austin PSI. A facelift is a surgical procedure that improves sagging skin on the face and helps eliminate wrinkles by stretching out the facial skin. If you are looking for a procedure that will help improve your look and turn back the hands of time, a facelift would be perfect for you. To schedule a consultation, please call our office today or check out our doctors' websites.
Candidates for Facelift
If you have wrinkles, lines and sagging skin on your face due to aging or other factors, a facelift is a good procedure for you. You are a good candidate if you are older, in good health and have extreme skin sagging and wrinkles. A facelift is the most invasive of the facial procedures that you can have done. Your surgeon will be able to tell you if you are an ideal candidate for a facelift, and if you are not, they will be able to suggest alternative methods that may not be as invasive but could produce similar results. Other procedures that are similar to a facelift include Botox, brow lift, EndyMed and Radiesse.
Facelift Details and Recovery Information
The facelift surgery takes several hours to complete and is performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on you and your doctorâ€™s preference. During the surgery, your surgeon will make an incision along the hairline and excess fat and skin are removed and the facial muscles are tightened. After the procedure, you should expect some swelling and bruising for a few days. You will need to keep bandages on the incision for a day or two following your surgery. You will be able to go back to work after 10 days or so and strenuous activity should be avoided for about two weeks. A full recovery takes about 3 weeks. During your recovery time, please limit sun exposure and avoid alcohol, steam baths and saunas.
Once you have fully recovered from your facelift procedure, the results will be quite noticeable. Your skin will be tighter, wrinkles will be gone or less visible, and you will no longer have any sagging skin on your chin or jawline. Facelift results last for several years as long as you take good care of yourself. You will look years younger and much more refreshed and rested.
During your consultation, your chosen plastic surgeon will explain all of the procedure details and risks. This is the time to ask any questions or bring up concerns that you may have.
