Read answers to the most common questions we are asked by those who are considering undergoing facial plastic surgery. If you are considering a procedure, we invite you to meet with us in a private consultation.
Can the results of a facelift appear natural, not obvious, tight, or pulled?
A facelift, when performed with the most advanced techniques, does not leave your face looking unusual or overdone. Older techniques involved simply removing excess skin and pulling the remaining skin tight, leaving an unnatural, pulled look. At South Florida Facial Plastic Surgery, our surgeons are at the leading edge in facelift surgery. Our approach creates a very natural outcome that looks like you.
Can you tighten facial skin without plastic surgery?
The development of new technology has made it possible to tighten facial skin, without the need to undergo surgery. However, for more extreme cases of sagging, creased skin, jowls, double chin, creases, and lines, facial plastic surgery is necessary. At South Florida Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer both surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments and may use a combination of procedures to achieve the most elegant, natural-looking outcome.
What is a mini facelift?
Many younger people, between the ages of about 40 to 55, want to maintain a younger appearance, but do not need a full facelift. A mini facelift treats the mid to lower face, resculpts the jawline, removes jowls and excess under-chin fat, and lifts and resuspends the underlying facial tissues for a very natural, youthful look. The incisions are shorter, the healing time faster, and the results are elegant and refreshed.
How long does it take for scars to heal after facial plastic surgery?
Surgical incisions will take some time to fade. To speed the process, we work closely with our patients during recovery, including managing surgical scars. Once any sutures are removed, the scar can be hidden with makeup. Avoid sun exposure, wear sunblock, and follow all aftercare instructions. The rate of healing varies from person to person, but generally, the scar fades to be similar to your skin tone within six to twelve months.
Am I a good candidate for facial plastic surgery?
To be a candidate for a facial procedure, you should be in good general health. A full review of your medical history, any medications, and supplements you take, and any health conditions you may have will reveal whether you are a candidate.
How do I choose the right surgeon?
It can be difficult to choose a surgeon for a facial procedure. It is advised that you choose a facial plastic surgeon. A facial plastic surgeon has had a focused education, experience in advanced facial procedures, and performs these surgeries more often. At South Florida Facial Plastic Surgery, every facial surgery is performed by a specialist in face and neck surgery. It matters.
