Oklahoma Facelift

Procedure:
If you have developed facial and neck wrinkles, if you think you always appear tired, or if the muscles in your face and neck seem droopy or less toned than they once were, you can achieve a more rested and youthful look with a facelift. The technique involves tightening muscles, redraping and lifting skin, and finally removing excess skin.

Facelifts can often be tailored to each patient’s individual needs, facial shape and features. They range from “mini” to “standard” depending on where the problem area is most heavily located, on elasticity of the skin, and of course on the patient’s goals. For a more enhanced result, a facelift can often be combined with other facial plastic surgery procedures, such as a forehead or brow lift, a rhinoplasty (nose job), a neck or chin lift, or a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery).

Our cosmetic surgeon in Oklahoma generally makes the facelift incision within the hairline above the ear, extends it behind the lobe, and completes it within or below the hairline behind the ear.

Length of Procedure:
Usually at least 2 or more hours, though it depends on how extensive a procedure you’re having

Anesthesia:
Local anesthesia with sedation, or under general anesthesia

In/Outpatient:
Outpatient

Risks:
Major complications are rare, though all surgical procedures may carry some degree of risk. Specific potential risks can’t be determined for any given individual until a doctor in Oklahoma has been able to meet with the patient to evaluate the situation and prior health conditions.

Some potential risks can include hematoma, temporary damage to facial nerves, infection, or, what would more likely be a risk to smokers, insufficient healing.

Keeping an open line of communication with your surgeon, throughout your facelift experience, can greatly reduce any potential risks.

Recovery:
Minimal initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication
Back to work: Within 14 days
Strenuous activity: 14-20 days
Final appearance: Within 4-6 weeks, potential for improvement continues for several months

Duration of results:
Because gravity and the effects of aging are unavoidable, you may wish to repeat the procedure, or a variation on it, perhaps 5-10 years later. However, that decade or so of aging will be much less difficult to deal with after having had the facial plastic surgery than if you had never treated the situation in the first place.
