Key Tips to Plan Your Facelift Surgery Procedure

by BodySculpt NYC Body Sculpt - Plastic Surgery
For individuals concerned about the signs of aging - folds, wrinkles, lines and creases, facelift in NYC is an ideal option. Minimally invasive facelift can be performed using advanced energy-assisted modalities such as BodyTite™ (radiofrequency assisted), Smartlipo Triplex (laser assisted) and VASERlipo (ultrasound assisted).

A typical treatment involves removing excess skin, tightening the underlying muscles and providing improved definition to the cheeks and chin.

Consider planning for your surgery in advance. Even though the procedure provides immediate results, these results will continue to improve and optimal results may be seen only several months after the treatment.

Key Tips to Plan for Facelift

Determine whether you are an ideal candidate

Ideal candidates for this procedure are individuals with good skin elasticity, better bone structure and loose skin on the face or neck. You should also be non-smokers and healthy without any medical conditions that could impair healing. Also, have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure.

You may not be the right candidate, if you are taking blood-thinning medications or supplements such as blood thinners (Coumadin, Plavix, others), aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or if you have a history of repeated weight gain and loss which affect the shape of your face and condition of your skin.

Schedule a consultation with an expert plastic surgeon

Consider scheduling a pre-operative appointment with an expert plastic surgeon in an AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice. Make sure that the surgeon is an expert in facelift procedure. Skilled surgeons can determine your candidature for the procedure as well. During the appointment, make sure to discuss all the medications you are taking.

Optimize your weight

To undergo the procedure, you need to be at your ideal weight. Make sure to follow a good healthy diet and exercise regularly to avoid being overweight. Do not consider diet pills to reduce weight. Being overweight can increase the risk of complications from surgery and anesthesia, which could result in infection, bleeding, and other circulation problems. This also affects the healing process after surgery. Your results will also last longer, if you reach the right weight before surgery and keep your weight stable afterwards.

Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption

While planning to undergo facelift surgery, consider quitting smoking, usage of tobacco products and consumption of alcohol. Smoking and use of alcohol increase the risk of surgical complications and can even lead to undesirable facelift results. Strictly follow your surgeon’s recommendations.

Stay hydrated

Staying hydrated is crucial for a speedy and effective recovery. Enough water content in the body keeps your body cleansed and hydrated, which will be crucial to your recovery and healing.

EmbraceRF is another facial contouring procedure for precise sculpting of the lower face and neck. Providing results similar to a facelift, this procedure combines FaceTite with Morpheus8, which allows the plastic surgeon to “mold” the fat of the face in strategic positions and address laxity to provide optimal, natural-looking results. For any procedure you consider, make sure that the plastic surgeon you choose is experienced in performing the specific procedure.
