Arguably one of the most popular and trusted procedures for taking years off of the face, a facelift is an effective surgery for looking and feeling youthful, from the inside out. That said, all of the tightening, firming and smoothing that a facelift provides would never be possible, without the use of strategically placed incisions. Given that the face is one of the most public regions of the body, it’s important to be well aware of your facelift incisions. So if you are considering this procedure, consider the following:
Incisions are Well Hidden
In an effort to reduce the appearance of scars, Dr. Leverett will place the incisions around the ears. For some patients, incisions may extend into the scalp. This will allow Dr. Leverett to carefully lift the skin, tighten facial muscles and remove or reposition excess skin before redraping it. With these carefully placed incisions, you will achieve the anti-aging benefits of a facelift, without having to worry about the unsightly appearance of any scars.
Recovery is Seamless
Due to the fact that the actual facelift surgery may sound highly invasive, many patients are surprised and glad to discover that facelift recovery is more efficient and less painful than they may have expected. To help reduce bruising, our patients begin anti-bruising remedies before their procedure and continue this into recovery. Although each recovery is different, many of our patients find their swelling has dissipated within seven to 10 days of their procedure.
