Safe but worthless


The only thing that does what a facelift does is a facelift, which is a 3-dimensional rejuvenation and not simply a temporary bit of tightening; so for that reason I don't think anything can truly be called a nonsurgical facelift. I doubt that microcurrent does anything significant or lasting. Some nonsurgical options that are helpful include Ulthera and Thermage.

Yes


I think it is a relatively safe procedure.The main risk is to your pocketbook as there is virtually no serious scientific evidence that supports the efficacy of this procedure. caveat emptor

Peels help skin


Peels come as deep, medium and superficial. The deeper the peel the more discomfort and down time one has. Superficial peels can provide good results if done with frequency. Melange peel is a deep peel for pigment problems or the mini melange is no down time but great for pigment and on ethnic skin. Using daily skin care products to exfoliate the skin and depigment it are just as critical

Head elevated


You will reduce swelling and be more comfortable if you keep your head somewhat elevated after facelift surgery. Usually a couple of extra pillows will be sufficient. Your surgeon may also advise you wear a supportive bandage for a few weeks afterward

 Sleep Facelift Sleep position Head Skin Face Sleep hygiene

Facelift Recovery


Sleep position after a facelift is of utmost importance and it is recommended to sleep on your back with your head elevated (30 deg) (make a wedge with a few pillows) during the first week. Many of my patients liked sleeping in a recliner for the first few days b/c you will be less likely to roll to the side. Follow this and you will reduce swelling and possible skin bunching or delayed healing.

Pick a good surgeon


Discuss with your surgeon what you want to accomplish with surgery and what your concerns are. If you find a surgeon who is board certified in plastic surgery, has good experience with facelift, and you trust them after meeting them, then your facelift can accomplish the natural results you are looking for.

Definitely


Modern facelift surgery usually does look quite natural. In the past, facelift usually meant pulling the skin tight. That lead to a stretched or "windblown" look that was not natural. Contemporary facelift involves tightening and lifting the deeper structures in the face and neck rather than pulling the skin tight. This not only lasts longer but it is safer and also much more natural looking.

YES!


To look naturally beautiful is easy providing that you seek good council from a thoughtful and discerning cosmetic physician that understands the human form and the underpinnings of the aging process. Insist on a thorough explanation of the procedure, the rationale behind the proposed treatment and ask to see examples of the physician's work. Explain that your goal is to look "rested", not "done".

Yes, A well done facelift turns back the clock 10-15 years. Most people just notice the bad looking facelifts because they are obvious. The good facelifts are not obvious at all. Best regards, Nima Shemirani

Yes


Keloids are an overactive healing process. Essentially the off button doesn't work after the incision has healed and overproduction of collagen creates thick scars. keloids are different from hypertrophic scars. Keloids actually by definition must grow beyond the boundaries of the scar. Hypertophied scars are confined within but are thick and elevated. Dark skin patients are more susceptible.

A facelift is a safe procedure when performed by a skilled plastic surgeon. Risks include bleeding/ hematoma, infection, nerve injury, scarring-- including keloids--, asymmetry, wound healing problems, and need for revision operation. Discuss your individual risks with your plastic surgeon.
