Lose Years with a Facelift from our Houston Practice
“First to tell you “thank you” and then a line to say that doing nice things for others just seems to be your way! Thank you very much for being such a caring doctor.”
One of the best ways of eliminating fine lines and wrinkles is by having a facelift. Houston patients find that a facelift is much more effective than BOTOX® and Restylane® because it can correct deep-set wrinkles. It also produces much more dramatic results as compared to other, less invasive procedures, because it involves tightening facial muscles and skin.
The facelift procedure will vary from one patient to another. This is because each patient needs to be evaluated according to their needs and the condition of their face. For most patients a face lift entails the removal of excess fats and ensuring that the face is bulge-free and smooth. After the excess fat has been removed, the neck and face skin has to be re-draped after tightening the facial muscles.
There are very many techniques that can be used when performing a facelift. These are thread lift, short-scar facelift, or Life-Style lift. These are but a few of the techniques that can be used in facial rejuvenation. If you have any questions visit Dr. Lapuerta, and he will answer them.
The patient may be in surgery for a few hours after they have been given a local anesthesia and sedation. After the facelift procedure a patient may have a bruised or swollen face for a day or two. The patient is required to go back to the doctor’s office so that the stitches can be removed. Some patients will still have a bruised face for up to two weeks and the swelling may last for up to a full month after the surgery.
