As we age, achieving a younger, more youthful appearance is everyone’s dream, especially in the face. Although aging is a natural part of the aging process, it doesn’t mean we must go along with it. That’s why we believe in looking, and more importantly, feeling your best in your own skin at Burgess Plastic Surgery.
What Do We Recommend For a Younger Look?
Face and neck lifts are an excellent treatment option if you’re struggling with sagging skin in the lower part of your face and neck. Facelifts can help fix signs of aging in the lower face, tighten underlying issues, and realign the skin in the lower part of your face. Dr. Burgess also typically adds fat grafting in strategic areas for a more youthful fullness. Facelifts are a type of cosmetic surgery that is used to achieve a more youthful appearance on the face. Often Dr. Burgess does the face and neck lift together, since it moves beautifully as one unit.
Who Can Get a Face and Neck lift?
Face and neck lift surgeries are recommended for people who want to fix any sagging skin below the jawline, unwanted skin in the lower face, fat deposits in the neck, or any sagging in the face. Improving the face and not the neck could cause an imbalance in these areas.
Most people who get facelifts are between the ages of 40 and 60 years old and are considered to be healthy. If you are a smoker or suffer from health conditions such as blood clotting or high blood pressure, you should consult your doctor before getting any procedures done.
Recovery After a Face and Neck lift
The average recovery time after a Face and Neck lift is two to three weeks. If you receive a face and neck lift, you should make sure to keep your head elevated and limit activity until the recovery process is over. Immediately after surgery, you can expect bruising, aching, and swelling for at least a week. For any discomfort, medication may be taken.
