A facelift procedure is design to reduce the visible signs of aging in your face. It’s not uncommon for people having a facelift at Simmons Plastic Surgery to also have an ear surgery or browlift performed at the same time. This helps to address signs of aging in these related ages in one single procedure. In some cases, this might also include facial implants inserted over the cheek bones or a chin implant to give you more prominent features.
The facelift procedure will specifically address sagging in the middle of your face, deep creases below your lower eyelids as well as some of the lines along your nose and mouth. It can also to improve skin tone and texture in the lower face and address excess fatty deposits under your chin.
There are a few different factors that will influence your recovery time. This includes your age, general state of health, tobacco use, and the overall quality of aftercare. It’s wise to plan to take at least a week off after the facelift procedure and abstain from strenuous activities until your Simmons Plastic Surgery surgeon clears you.
