Over the years, many people have come to associate facelifts with those who appear to have very stretched, unnatural-looking faces. While this may once have been the case, changing surgical techniques have improved the results for patients across the globe. Newer natural-looking facelifts are becoming the norm, and doctors are learning how to tweak the muscles and tissues of the face to lessen the effects of age without stretching the facial features. A Newport Beach Natural Facelift is a great choice for those who are noticing sagging skin around the temples, cheeks and jawline and who want to turn back the clock.
A Newport Beach natural facelift is actually a type of SMAS bi-plane Rhytidectomy, a surgical technique that differs from deep plane procedures and other variations. This procedure has been used for over two decades to create a refreshed facial look, and this facelift has experienced a high level of patient satisfaction.
Some patients may want additional procedures done along with their facelifts. Some options include eyelid surgery or a forehead lift. Having two procedures done simultaneously can decrease surgical and anesthesia costs for the patient.
Many Newport Beach patients are concerned about lingering complications from a facelift. Complications are rare but could include bleeding, bruising and swelling around the incision sites. Side effects from the anesthesia may occur, and patients may need to be on antibiotics for a possible infection. However, most patients can go back to their normal activities two weeks or less following surgery. Dr. Tavoussi can usually skillfully hide any incisions around the ears or in the hairline to avoid embarrassment in public.
