Facelift Benefits and Risks

By Carmel Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeons on July 09, 2011

One of the best options to consider for enhancing the appearance of the face is a facelift. The facelift can reduce and even eliminate the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and sagging in the face. There are various facial lift surgeries available that can target different parts of the face, such as the forehead, the cheek and eye area, and the neckline and jowls.

Is a facelift right for you?

When you come to our Indianapolis area plastic surgery practice, Dr. Elizabeth A. Grasee and Dr. Debra C. Bergman will assess your situation and determine the best facial lift surgery to meet your needs. During this consultation process, they will answer any questions that you may have and address your concerns as well. They’ll also be sure that you are well informed of the risks and benefits associated with facelift surgery. While these can’t be fully explored here, we’d like to take an opportunity to go over some of the basic risks and benefits of facelift surgery.

Benefits of Facelift Surgery

Starting with the benefits, one of the greatest benefits is an enhanced appearance without noticeable scarring. During any sort of facial lift surgery, Dr. Grasee and Dr. Bergman will be sure to make incisions that are discreet and hidden from view. This will ensure that you get great results from the facial lift and that no one will notice you’ve undergone a facelift unless they know what to look for and where to look.

Another benefit to facelift surgery is that the surgery will be tailored to your needs and your goals. Since everyone’s face is different, it’s important that each surgery be approached differently. Different facial lift surgeries and techniques may be applied to best meet your needs and enhance your appearance.

Risks of Facelift Surgery

As for the risks, they are similar to the risks associated with any elective or medically necessary surgery. There is a possibility of infection following surgery as well as other post-surgical complications. It’s important that you follow our instructions for post-surgical care to reduce the chances of these complications occurring. In addition, we encourage you to contact the practice if you should experience any undue pain or discomfort or other issues during your recovery period. We’ll address these matters as soon as we possible can.
