A facelift, like any other plastic surgery procedure, can be a great way to refresh your look and preserve your natural beauty. However, these are serious procedures and expensive investments. That being said, you should be well-educated on what to expect during the facelift process. You should be well acquainted with all the steps from preparation to healing, and you should also be aware of the potential risks involved.
The first step of the process will be a consultation with your plastic surgeon. Your doctor should explain the entire process in full detail. He should also answer any and all questions you may have about the procedure. A good doctor will ease your worries without being pushy. A doctor’s job is to help you decide if a procedure is right for you, not to sell you on it.
Your doctor will examine your face’s trouble spots and any problem areas that you would like to address. From here, he will devise a plan for surgery. He should detail all of the components of the procedure he has planned for you. This includes cost, insurance coverage (if applicable), potential risks, side effects, and healing time. All of this information will help you to plan your procedure accordingly.
