Face Lift Results
Skin type and age influence face lift results, so people interested should meet a qualified cosmetic surgeon to discuss appropriate expectations. Skin will continue to age after the procedure. Patients should also realize that some scarring is unavoidable following the procedure, although the surgeon will strive to make it as inconspicuous as possible.
Though a face lift is not a permanent solution to aging — you’re new and improved appearance will age, just as your original one did — it can set back the clock by several years. Once the swelling and bruising has subsided over a few weeks you will be able to appreciate the results. The aim of face lift is to rejuvenate and make you look fresher.
Patients do have a concern in the initial stage s of healing due to the bruising, puffiness, and other negative temporary effects which may initially mask the effects of the procedure, and can make the recovery period very trying on the patient. Makeup can be used to cover discoloration and the scars would fade with time. Most people would appreciate the results within a month.
In some cases, an additional treatment may be advisable to augment or enhance face lift results. Cosmetic procedures commonly combined with face lift surgery include brow lift and eyelid surgery. Lip augmentation, fat grafting, chemical peel and laser resurfacing are good adjunctive procedures to further enhance the results.
