Facelift Q & A
What is a facelift?
A facelift is a procedure that involves raising certain parts of your face for a more youthful appearance. Facelifts target the midsection of your face rather than the upper part of it. This helps minimize jowls and add more definition to your neck.
Am I a good candidate for a facelift?
Dr. Kevorkian will evaluate you to determine if a facelift is the most suitable choice for you. Typically, facelifts are a suitable option for patients who are showing signs of aging, such as sagging skin, as long as they’re in good health. Dr. Kevorkian will let you know if there are any reasons to consider having an alternative treatment done instead of a facelift, such as an underlying condition that might affect the healing process.
Do facelifts improve skin quality?
Facelifts enhance the youthful appearance of skin by minimizing signs of aging, such as jowls and fine lines, but they don’t improve the texture or quality of your skin. However, Dr. Kevorkian offers various treatments that are designed to boost skin quality and texture, such as dermal fillers.
Will I need anesthesia?
It depends on the type of procedure you’re having. Minimally invasive procedures might only require local anesthesia, while traditional facelifts might require general anesthesia. Dr. Kevorkian lets you know which type of anesthesia you’ll have before your facelift.
How long does a facelift take?
This also depends on the kind of facelift you’re having. Traditional facelifts take longer to perform since they’re more invasive. Minimally invasive procedures typically take shorter amounts of time.
Will I have visible scars?
Facelifts involve making incisions in certain parts of your face, which does lead to scarring. However, Dr. Kevorkian makes incisions in areas that won’t leave noticeable scars. Any scarring that does occur shouldn’t be visible.
How do I recover from a facelift?
Dr. Kevorkian will provide you with instructions on the recovery process after a facelift. You might have to restrict certain activities while your face heals. The amount of time you’ll need to recover fully depends on the type of facelift you’re having.
