A Guide to Getting a Facelift

What’s great about getting plastic surgery in 2018 is that there is now so much great information out there for you to educate yourself about before you dive in and undergo a cosmetic procedure.  However, sometimes it can be quite overwhelming with how much information is available. Here, we are taking you through a quick guide with some of the most important information that you need to know about having a facelift.

 

When Is It the Right Time to Get A Facelift?

Most people do not get surgery as major as a facelift on a whim and a lot of time and thought is usually put into a decision such as this. If your self-confidence is being affected by the look of sagging skin and other treatments are not having any effect on this, then it may be time to think about getting an effective treatment such as a facelift. There is no set age range when it comes to getting this type of surgery and as long as your general health is good then anyone of any age will be able to undergo this procedure.

How Is the Recovery Post Surgery?

After a facelift, you can expect to need roughly two weeks to recover. You will need to rest easy and it is good to have someone else who is around to help you. Many people ask the question does a facelift leave scars and when a surgeon is making an incision in the skin, some sort of scarring is usually unavoidable. This is why is it extremely important that you spend time choosing the right surgeon. Your stitches will be removed around a week after your surgery and after the two week period, you should be fine to return back to work. To try and speed up the recovery process, it is recommended that you eat as healthily as you possibly can and that you follow the very specific recovery guidelines.

How Long Do Facelifts Last?

There is no guarantee as to how long your facelift will last, but you will tend to find that it can be up to ten years before you need any sort of touch-up. If you want to extend your results, even more, we would recommend that you stay out of the sun as much as you can, wear sunscreen every day, eat a healthy diet and also speak with a skincare professional about which products are going to be best for your skin.

 

What Should I Look For in a Surgeon?

When getting any form of plastic surgery, it is important that you choose a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon who knows what they are doing. It is a good idea to narrow down your search to a few plastic surgeons and then booking consultations with each of them to chat through what you want and this should help you to make a final decision.
