When To Consider Facelift

Your plastic surgeon will tell you if you really need a facelift procedure after carrying a thorough examination. However, there are some general indicators that can tell if you are a good candidate for Rhytidectomy:

  • you have displaced or fallen facial fat volume
  • you display signs of jowls, i.e., sagging and loss of muscle tone in the lower face
  • sagging and creased skin in the neck region
  • you have nasolabial folds meaning there are lines or creases from your nose to corners of your mouth
  • there is some skin elasticity in your face but there are signs of facial aging

Before Facelift

When you have decided to go through facelift procedure, you must carefully follow all instructions by your cosmetic surgeon. You also need to keep in mind the following points before the facelift surgery:

  • For faster recovery and healing, stop smoking at least 4-6 weeks before the surgery. Smoking can also increase the chance of complications during surgery apart from interfering with recovery process
  • Stop blood thinning medications or drugs that cause blood thinning. These include homeopathic regimens, Aspirin, and anti-inflammatory medications.
  • Stay well-hydrated before and after surgery as it aids in faster recovery. This is applicable for any kind of surgery you plan to undertake.
  • If your surgery is on an outpatient basis, make arrangements in advance for someone to drop you home on the day of surgery.
  • Make preparations for your meals in advance before the surgery. These involve buying lots of fruits and vegetables, lean protein, frozen meals, and foods with minimum sodium that increases swelling.
