Years of exposure to the elements, changes in weight and even your family genetics all can diminish the vibrant youthful look you expect for yourself. Many women and men achieve pleasing improvements in their facial appearance by choosing a face lift in Boca Raton.
Dr. Steven Schuster or Dr. Daniel Kovacs can help you decide if a face lift is right for you when you request a FREE consultation in Boca Raton. They take the time to explain the benefits and limitations of face lift surgery as it applies to you, as well as the various types of face lifts, to help you make an informed choice about this procedure.
The Basics – Boca Raton Face Lift
A face lift, technically known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves the appearance of the lower two-thirds of the face, including the cheeks, jowls and neck. This procedure produces a youthful look by tightening underlying tissues and facial muscles and removing excess skin and fat from the face.
Both women and men choose face lift surgery in Boca Raton for a smoother, younger-looking facial appearance and increased self-confidence. Ideal candidates are in their 40s to 70s, have good skin elasticity and have a well-defined bone structure. A face lift may be right for you if the skin and tissue on your lower face and neck have begun to droop or sag. Many patients elect to combine their face lift with eyelid surgery, a brow lift, laser resurfacing or rhinoplasty (nose job) in Boca Raton for a complete facial rejuvenation.
Your Procedure, Your New Look
Most Boca Raton face lift procedures take about three hours to perform, but surgery may last longer if a face lift is combined with other cosmetic procedures. Most face lifts are performed under local anesthesia with sedation, although general anesthesia may be right for some patients.
Dr. Schuster and Dr. Kovacs strive to create a very natural result with face lift surgery in Boca Raton. They will discuss the facial sculpting options available and work with you to arrive at the best combination for the specific improvements you desire.
The Doctors Answer Your Questions
It\'s understandable that you might feel nervous about your consultation appointment. We hope to make your visit reassuring, encouraging and informative. We\'ll take time to get to know you, learn about your lifestyle and answer any questions you might have for us. Here are a few common questions we are asked about face lift in Boca Raton.
Will I get permanent results after having a Boca Raton face lift?
Face lift surgery produces long-lasting results. Because you are constantly exposed to the factors that originally diminished the youthful look of your face, the results are not permanent. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and caring for your skin will help extend the longevity of your results. You can usually expect your face lift surgery results to last from five to ten years, depending on individual factors.
Will a face lift leave noticeable scars?
As with most cosmetic surgery procedures, face lift surgery will leave permanent scars. We do our best to see that the scars are not noticeable to other people. When performing face lift surgery, we intentionally conceal the incisions we make in the hair, behind the ears and under the chin.
How long is the recovery period?
The recovery period for face lift surgery is about 10 to 14 days. The first week after surgery, the tightness or soreness that patients experience can be controlled with prescription medication. Most patients return to work within two weeks after surgery, even though swelling and bruising may persist for up to three weeks. You should wait at least three weeks before engaging in any strenuous activities.
