DC Facelift Techniques
We all know that the aging process can make us look a lot older than we feel. That is why facelifts provide an option to fight back against the process of aging with a procedure that can make you look younger!
A facelift procedure combines non-invasive and surgical techniques to reduce the signs of aging and reshape your facial features for a natural, more youthful appearance.
What Does A Facelift In DC Include?
The DC facelift procedure combines several different procedures. Dr. Bruno and or Dr. Brown, will determine which procedures will best suit your unique needs/goals.
Together, you and our doctor can decide how to best proceed. We aim to help refine your appearance and help you look and feel better.
During your consultation with our doctors, you may discuss:
- Facial symmetry
- Facial harmony
- Excess skin around the neck and chin area
- Skin elasticity
A facelift procedure may include a few different techniques. Although many techniques can be used during the process, this will depend on what exactly your concern is.
The primary techniques can include a full facelift, a mid-facelift, a lower facelift, and a neck lift:
- A full facelift includes adjustments to the whole facial region; this means adjustments from the neck up to the eyes
- A mid-facelift will focus primarily on the cheeks and adjacent areas
- A lower facelift will be around the mid and lower face region, it is often preferred by those just beginning to experience the signs of aging
- A neck lift will address the neck bands and excess skin that may be below the jawline
During your consultation with our doctors, we will discuss the best combination of options to ensure you achieve your facial rejuvenation goals.
How To Know If You Need A Facelift In DC
If you feel that your daily regimen of anti-aging creams or non-surgical options like Botox isn’t making a difference anymore, it could be time to consider a DC facelift with our top DC plastic surgeons at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery.
A facelift can also remove excess skin if you have sagging skin around the neck or chin area.
Good candidates for facelifts are individuals who are in overall good health, have realistic expectations for their desired goals/appearance, generally have healthy skin with good elasticity, are non-smokers, or are willing to quit smoking before and during the recovery of the procedure.
DC Facelift Recovery & Results
After your procedure, you can expect soreness and or tightness around the areas of your face that were targeted.
During your consultation, our doctors, Dr. Bruno and or Dr. Brown, will discuss the recovery period in detail. They can answer any specific questions and provide directions for your recovery that you’ll need to be aware of.
Typically, after two or three weeks a patient has fully recovered with minimal swelling. Incisions aren’t typically noticeable as they’re hidden in places like your hairline.
Each patient’s DC facelift will heal differently and may have varying effects.
