A facelift procedure has been a dream and a goal for a few years. You wonder, “What are the full benefits of a facelift?” At Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Grand Rapids, your surgeon, Dr. John Iacobucci, wants his patients completely informed about their procedures. Information about this common cosmetic surgery helps individuals feel confident in the treatment, aftercare and wonderful results to come.
What is a facelift?
A facelift is an outpatient cosmetic surgery performed right at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Grand Rapids. Dr. John Iacobucci uses this popular procedure to help patients in their 40’s through their 70’s improve the laxity, wrinkling, sagging, and other signs of aging in their faces.
Often augmented with brow and eyelid lifts, the facelift smoothes and tightens facial skin, obviates jowls and deep wrinkles around the mouth and improves the neck line. Dr. Iacobucci even removes excess fat from under the skin and tightens facial and neck muscles.
Many healthy people do, say experts at the Cleveland Clinic. However, realistic expectations are key to the success of the treatment. Saying it another way, the patient should expect to look better after his or her surgery, but not like a 20-year-old supermodel.
Your plastic surgeon will examine your face and neck, take measurements, and review your medical history. If everything checks out, you will be scheduled for a 5-hour procedure. Afterward, expect to wear bandages for about five days and see some redness and bruising. Full recovery takes a few weeks, and complete results show in about six months.
Benefits of face lift surgery
You, your friends and your family will see a wonderfully rejuvenated facial appearance. Your new look can last five to 10 years and beyond, and as needed, spot lifts for the eyelids and brows may be performed. Your doctor also may suggest some aesthetic skin treatments such as BOTOX treatments for dynamic wrinkling and chemical peels to smooth the texture of your skin.
Finally, your surgery will be performed by the best plastic surgeon in the Grand Rapids area. Count on compassionate treatment and a great outcome!
