Why should I consider a face lift procedure?
Over time men and women alike may become concerned with signs of aging such as facial wrinkles and sagging. A facelift may be the right procedure for you if you’ve tried other cosmetic correction procedures without satisfaction for the following conditions:
- Sagging around the middle of your face.
- Deep lines and creases around your mouth or below your eyes.
- Hollow cheeks or a loss of muscle tone.
- Loose skin around the chin and jaw line.
While a face lift will cause you to look younger, it is important to note that a face lift does not stop the body’s natural aging process.
What happens during a face lift procedure?
Also known as rhytidectomy, a face lift is one of the most common plastic surgery techniques in Oklahoma City. It is a surgical procedure to correct the visible signs of aging in the face and neck. When done by a qualified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Brou, a face lift can tighten loose or sagging skin, soften wrinkles and refresh your look. You can combine a face lift with other procedures, such as a brow lift, eyelid lift, or fat grafting to the face. A quality face lift will not appear tight or unnatural.
A traditional face lift incision begins in the hairline, continues around the ear and ends in the lower scalp. Fat may be sculpted or redistributed and underlying tissue is repositioned. Skin is then tightened and trimmed away where necessary. Sutures or skin adhesives close the incisions.
If you have concerns regarding the appearance and location of your surgical scars, discuss these with Dr. Brou during your pre-operative consultation.
How much down time should I expect with a face lift procedure?
Just like any other operation, patients can expect several hours in a recovery area and monitoring following your procedure. An overnight stay may be required, although you should expect to be able to move and walk soon after surgery.
When your procedure is complete, a bandage could gently be placed around your face to minimize post face lift swelling and bruising. Dr. Brou will advise you of your individual treatment plan and next steps. However, patients should expect swelling and bruising to remain for a week or more. Additionally nerves will take time to grow and trigger normally which may lead to additional downtime for patients.
What can I expect as a result of my face lift procedure?
Just as every original appearance is unique, results of your face lift procedure will also vary. It is most important to discuss all of your concerns and goals with Dr. Brou. Following your consultation, Dr. Brou will advise you of likely outcomes for your appearance.
Are there any risks associated with a face lift procedure?
A face lift is a surgical procedure, and therefore risks are always involved as a result of receiving anesthesia as well as the procedure itself. Dr. Brou can help assess your unique health needs and advise you of any concerns to be aware of prior to undergoing surgery. Potential risks associated with face lifts include: scarring, bleeding, infection, hair loss at incision site, nerve injury or weakness, asymmetry, skin loss, numbness, fluid buildup, pain, and swelling.
Reviews from Real Patients
I got a full face-lift a year ago. I look absolutely natural,and at 54, could pass for early 40′s. Thank you Dr. Brou, for keeping me safe, and taking such good care of me. It is an absolute act of trust to let someone perform cosmetic surgery, and I couldn’t be happier with your performance.
It’s not so much how I look but how it makes me feel. I just feel like a younger. It makes me feel like I’m looking more like I feel I guess. It takes some years off. It just makes you feel so great. Dr. Brou really just made me feel so comfortable that it was a completely normal thing to do. There were certain aspects of it you could pursue and certain aspects you didn’t need to, which made me feel good.
