Facelifts are normally safe procedures that have a minimal amount of complications when performed by a trained professional. However, there are certain risks that can happen with any type of surgery. Let’s look at the most common ones.
These risks are unlikely to occur, but you must be aware of them before you go through surgery. A facelift is actually a major surgery that requires going under anesthesia. If you have any concerns, talk with your surgeon, Dr. Yirae Ort.
Now let’s talk about all the benefits you can expect after your facelift is performed and completely healed.
Your face looks years younger. The procedure tightens the skin and lifts the face back to a more youthful position. The change in your appearance is one of the most dramatic changes you can make.
You have no noticeable scars. Most facelifts involve incisions that are hidden along the hairline, under the chin, or close to the ear. They are tiny and often become barely detectable once healed.
