A facelift is a surgical procedure designed to lift your face, get rid of extra skin and tissues that may be causing your cheeks or chin to sag and smooth out deep-set wrinkles that no longer respond to topical treatments. However, you may be wondering if you can have a facelift because it comes with plenty of recovery time.
Considerations for Cosmetic Surgery & Recovery Time
You should know that this is an invasive procedure that is most often done under general anesthesia. The entire procedure may take several hours depending on the extent of the work to be done. While you will be discharged home the same day, you should not plan on returning to work or your other activities too quickly. Most patients wait up to two weeks before returning to work.
Consult Dr. Tavoussi for Cosmetic Procedures
If you do not think that you can fit even a mini facelift into your life, you may want to consider less invasive techniques that require no recovery time, such as Botox or dermal fillers. While they will not provide permanent results and may not provide as incredible anti-aging benefits as a full facelift could, they can smooth away wrinkles and make you look a bit more youthful within a few days of your appointment. If you are unhappy with the lines and wrinkles on your face, schedule an appointment with Dr. Tavoussi at OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in Newport Beach today, and let him help you discover which procedure is right for you.
