As you age, collagen and elastin production slow down. This can cause your skin to sag and your facial features to appear older. Facelift surgery can help reverse these signs of aging to help you feel more confident about your appearance. In order to achieve the best results from this procedure, there are things you must do during recovery to help with the healing process so you can look your best. Here are three tips to help you achieve optimal results during facelift recovery.

Follow Aftercare Instructions Carefully

After the procedure, your plastic surgeon will provide aftercare instructions to follow carefully during facelift recovery. You may have drains that need to be emptied on a scheduled basis to avoid complications. There may also be special instructions for cleaning wounds to prevent infection. Compression wraps may need to be worn during the first week to help reduce swelling.

Keep Facial Muscles Relaxed

During facelift recovery, it is important to keep your facial muscles relaxed for the first few days to prevent strain. Abrupt movements such as twisting or contortion can cause severe discomfort and may create complications. You may need to keep your facial muscles calm for several weeks until they fully heal.

Practice Sun Protection

Your skin will become more sensitive after a facelift procedure. It is important during facelift recovery to stay inside to avoid sun exposure as much as possible. If you do need to go outdoors, make sure to wear plenty of sunscreen.

Is a Facelift Right for You?

If you are considering facelift surgery, there are things you will need to know to help you achieve the results you desire. To discover if you are an ideal candidate, request a consultation with double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joshua D. Rosenberg. During your appointment, Dr. Rosenberg can explain the procedure and risks so you can know what to expect. He can recommend the best course of treatment to help you look and feel your best.

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
