Gravity is not on our list for Christmas cards this year. When it comes to beauty, gravity is not our friend. Sure, it helps keep us on this beautiful spinning planet and it’s a regular part of our everyday lives. But why does gravity have to pull so much when it comes to the skin on our faces? If you’re ready to turn back the clock (and turn back the effects of gravity), keep reading to learn more about our facelift procedure.
As we age, wrinkles become permanent and more deeply etched into our skin. You may wake up to find that you have skin that sags where it didn’t use to. Little jowls that hang off the jawline are a concern, and facelift surgery can help reverse these premature signs of aging. If you’re looking for more permanent results than what Botox and fillers can offer, then a facelift is likely a great fit.
We like to recommend that you take off plenty of time to rest and recover from your facelift procedure. Two weeks is a good timeframe to start with, though some patients go back to work sooner than that.
Exercising too early can create issues with the healing process, and resting is important. Generally, we recommend taking about three weeks off from visiting the gym, though your specific situation may differ. We will recommend a good timeline for you when we meet with you.
There are always scars left behind when the skin is damaged, but Dr. Trovato is expertly skilled in minimizing and hiding the scars from this procedure. Generally, the scars left behind are so small that they fade and blend right into the skin. Many times, they are not noticeable, or may resemble a natural little crease in the skin.
The cost of a facelift depends on your concerns and the exact procedure, as well as any details that are tailored to you during the procedure. Please contact our office to learn more.
