As we age, sun exposure, gravity, and stress are reflected on a person’s face. Over the course of time, these changes can result in a much older and dull appearance. For many people, these issues can be a significant concern, as our appearance is commonly associated with how confident we feel. Fortunately, the signs of aging can be reversed with a facelift procedure in our Juárez, MX, and El Paso, TX office
What is a Facelift?
A facelift is a surgical procedure that can make you look younger and fresher, improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of your face and neck. A facelift can be done alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping.
Candidates for a Facelift
Ideal candidates for a facelift are men and women who suffer from severe signs of aging and want to significantly improve their facial aesthetic. We will perform an initial examination of your facial skin and ask about your medical history to determine if a facelift is right for you. Ideally, patients should be in good physical health and have realistic expectations.
Recovery From A Facelift
After undergoing a facelift, it is normal to experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treatment area. While these will subside in time, we can also provide medication to help you feel comfortable during the recovery process. You will need to take about one to two weeks off work to rest and relax. We also advise that you limit performing strenuous physical activities and heavy lifting as you heal.
