Facelift Recovery: Chris details her day-to-day face lift progress
Chris had the Advanced Facelift Patient and Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty procedure by Dr. Jon Mendelsohn Here she details day to day face lift recovery and what she’s experiencing.
It’s procedure day and I just got home. I am resting on the couch. My face is still really numb and I’m having a difficult time speaking clearly.
00:00:20:21 – 00:00:32:27 So what I had done today was the Advanced Lift. I also had the upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty and in addition I had the DOT laser under my eyes. In general, a face-lift involves elevating the skin and tightening the underlying tissues and muscles.
Fat in the face and neck may be sculpted, removed or redistributed. Facial skin is then re-draped over the newly repositioned contours of the face, excess skin is removed, and the wound is stitched or taped closed. The deep plane facelift is generally considered the most comprehensive and long lasting type of facelift. This facelift involves the layer of muscles under your facial skin. These muscles are responsible for much of the drooping or sagging you may experience in your face as you age. You should look and feel normal after 2 – 4 weeks.
Keep in mind that facelift surgery cannot stop natural aging, so we encourage patients to continue to take care of their skin and make healthy lifestyle choices. A facelift will provide much more long-lasting results than non-surgical options. Most surgeons say a facelift or necklift will “last” about 8-10 years.
Dr. Jon Mendelsohn is a gifted facial plastic surgeon who has helped thousands of Cincinnati facelift patients achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance. He uses the most advanced techniques in his Advanced Lift facelifting procedure to help patients erase the signs of aging — including deep folds and sagging skin, jowls, and neck. The results of this face lift technique create a natural and more refreshed appearance.
