The Price of Facial Plastic Surgery
As we age, our reflections become surprising. Loose and sagging skin obscures our natural features. We often see a face that appears much older than the vitality and energy we contain inside. The skin of the face is delicate and prone to wrinkling as it loses elasticity with age. We develop loose cheeks droopy brows and even jowls as we age which all serve to obscure our natural beauty.
For patients seeking dramatic reversal to the appearance of loose or aging facial skin, face lifts provides the most effective treatment. A facelift, known medically as a rhytidectomy, helps to tighten and smooth the skin. Care is taken to make sure that the lifted skin appears youthful and natural. A good face lift erases decades of aging, revealing the youthful beauty of the natural features of the face.
You may be wondering, “How much does a facelift cost?” At our San Jose plastic surgery practice, many factors go into determining the cost of a facelift, including the scope of the surgery, the patient’s unique cosmetic goals, and whether the procedure is being combined with other facial plastic surgery procedures such as eyelid lift and rhinoplasty. To find out how much your facelift will cost, schedule your initial consultation at The Center for Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery today.
What is facelift surgery like?
During your facelift incisions will be made in the hair line. This placement keeps scarring virtually invisible. Dr. A.M. Yenikomshian then repositions the underlying muscles of the face and tightens these tissues with sutures to provide increased firmness. The skin is then stretched gently across the features, resulting in the disappearance of most wrinkles, droops and fine lines. Excess skin is removed and then the healing process begins.
Patients experience limited bruising and some soreness after facelift surgery. Patients are typically able to return to work after two week. It takes a full month of healing to resume more intense activity such as exercising. Each face lift procedure is tailored to suit the needs of the individual patient, so healing times may vary.
Am I a candidate for facelift surgery?
As with all cosmetic procedures, Dr. Yenikomshian meets with prospective San Jose facelift candidates to determine if a face lift surgery best suits your cosmetic goals. In some cases, less dramatic procedures like BOTOX, eye lifts, or even microdermabrasion may provide the skin rejuvenation you seek.
Face lift patients should be in relatively good health. Take time during consultation to discuss your full health history so that Dr. Yenikomshian can assess health risks. We recommend that your quit smoking prior to any surgery, as smoking impedes the proper circulation necessary for successful healing.
How much does face lift surgery cost?
