AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A FACELIFT?
A male facelift in the Northern New Jersey Area can successfully reduce sagging of your cheeks, smooth out the contours of your face and reduce appearance of “jowls”. When the Lift & Fill Technique is used it can also augments the areas of your face that have hollowed with aging and improve that sunken in appearance.
A facelift can reduce signs of aging to a great extent, but it cannot reverse sun damage to the skin or remove all facial wrinkles around the eyes, below the nose, and around the lips. Adjuncts to facelift such as Blepharoplasty (eyelid rejuvenation) Chemical Peels, Brow Lift and Neck Lift can be added to achieve your desired results.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A MALE FACELIFT IN THE NORTHERN NEW JERSEY AREA?
Although a facelift can make your face appear younger and healthier, taking years off your face, your face will continue to age. If you are experiencing anxiety over aging, a facelift may increase self-confidence and reduce anxiety over growing older. A proper maintenance plan is a key ingredient to lasting results of your facial rejuvenation.
HOW LONG IS FACELIFT RECOVERY?
Facelift surgery usually takes several hours. You may be able to go home that day, but some people spend one night in the hospital.
Your face will be bandaged after surgery, and the dressings are usually removed within one or two days. If a drainage tube has been placed, it will also be removed one or two days after surgery. I will remove your stitches in five to ten days. You may be prescribed pain medications.
Expect to have facial swelling and bruising. Cold compresses can help, as well as keeping your head elevated and still as much as possible.
Most people can return to their normal activities two to three weeks after a facelift. Contact Tutela Plastic Surgery for more information on our Facelift Procedure.
