Getting your facelift done is a significant decision in your life. It will be good if you get fully confident about the procedure. Before you start, ask a few questions to clear your doubts by asking a few questions to your plastic surgeon. You must know the truth before you opt for plastic surgery.
What Are My Surgical Options?
Facial plastic surgery has a lot of options depending on your requirements. It will vary according to the area of your face which needs a change. Rhinoplasty is the best option for people wanting to change the appearance of their nose. A facelift will be ideal if you want to rejuvenate your face by minimizing the appearance of jowls. Meanwhile, an eyelift or eyebrow lift will be best for reducing the excess skin and bagginess in that area.
Which Type of Anaesthesia Will Be Used?
Both Anesthesia options could be used during facial plastic surgery. If you are going in for a complex procedure or a combination of surgeries, then general anesthesia will be used. If you opt for a simple procedure like an eyelift, then a local anesthesia may be used. General anesthesia is recommended for surgeries that take a longer time. The surgeon feels freer and the patient is more comfortable during the procedure when general anesthesia is used.
Is it possible to have Multiple Surgeries in one go?
Yes, it’s quite a common thing; people combine multiple surgeries for achieving the perfect look. Rhinoplasty with chin augmentation is a common combination and so is a facelift with a brow lift. You can discuss this with your surgeon during your consultation, who will recommend the procedures according to your goals.
How much time will I have to take off for the Surgery?
The answer to this question also depends on the type of surgery you undergo.
Facial plastic surgery will require more downtime than chin augmentation. Similarly, Rhinoplasty will take a longer recovery time as compared to an eyelid lift. You will require an off for at least two weeks after the surgery. You’ll also have to avoid strenuous exercise and activities for at least six weeks post-surgery.
How Long Will the Results Last?
While some surgeries like Rhinoplasty will yield permanent results, facelift surgery will last for a decade. So the durability of results depends on the type of procedure chosen.
