About the Treatment
- Who is a good candidate for facelift surgery?
A facelift addresses both facial and neck rejuvenation. Accordingly, people who have noticed signs of aging and sagging of the skin in the face as well as the neck would benefit from facelift surgery.
Patients should also be healthy. Smokers will have to quit smoking at least six weeks prior to surgery. Patients should avoid taking any medications that make them prone to bleeding, such as aspirin.
- What improvements can I expect?
Patients undergoing facelift surgery should expect improvements in the face and neck, such as the tightening of excess, saggy skin, a more youthful facial shape, increased cheek fullness, a smoother and more youthful jaw contour, softened marionette and smile lines, and softened vertical bands in the neck.
- How is a facelift surgery performed?
Dr. Pirani primarily performs the necklift and neck rejuvenation through the facelift incision, an innovative technique that reduces the need for an extra scar in the neck. The scar is short, beginning just in front of the ear in the hairline area, extending around the earlobe, and ending just behind the ear.
Dr. Pirani will elevate and tighten the underlying sagging facial musculature and soft tissues. From the single short facelift incision, he will also tighten the neck muscles to rejuvenate the neck region. If there is excess fullness in the neck region, Dr. Pirani will perform liposuction in the neck.
Unlike typical facelifts, where the incision extends quite far into the temple area and quite far behind the ear into the hairline, Dr. Pirani’s short scar technique provides excellent results with minimal scarring.
After your facelift, Dr. Pirani will usually have you stay overnight in our accredited surgical facility. During your stay, you will be tended to by two nurses, who will ensure you’re safe and comfortable. Dr. Pirani will see you the next morning to change your dressings and make sure you’re doing well.
Initially, there will be some bruising and swelling present, but this usually resolves over a few weeks. Most people will return to work within 10 to 14 days after facelift surgery.
For a facelift consultation, Dr. Pirani will spend approximately 30 minutes going over all of your options and the surgical details, after which he will create a custom surgical plan that addresses all of your concerns and goals. He will go over risks and possible complications and give you an idea of what you should expect in terms of results and recovery. Dr. Pirani’s goal is to educate you so that you fully understand your customized surgical plan and feel confident and informed.
