How can I avoid an unnatural-looking result?
The most important decision you will make when pursuing a mini facelift is choosing your plastic surgeon. Dr. Anthony has extensive experience performing facial surgery and will use his skill, knowledge, and artistry to deliver nuanced results that seamlessly improve your appearance without pulling the skin or making you look like the proverbial deer in the headlights.
What are the limitations of a mini facelift?
While a mini facelift can help you to look more attractive, the face will continue to age over time. Dr. Anthony performs the surgery in a way that will support age-related changes. He can also pair facelift surgery with fat transfer to enhance your results and increase their longevity.
How can I maintain my mini facelift results?
It’s of vital importance that you wear sunblock to protect your skin from harmful UV rays after your procedure. Wearing a wide-brimmed sun hat can also help to preserve the youthfulness of your skin. Using a moisturizer every day can help keep your complexion firm and hydrated. Another part of maintaining your results is your lifestyle. Eating a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water, exercising, meditating, and sleeping well can all have immense benefits in terms of your appearance. It goes without saying that smoking can undo all the positive changes made by your mini facelift surgery, speeding up the aging process and posing significant health risks.
How can I best prepare for my mini facelift?
The first step is to undergo a detailed consultation with Dr. Anthony. He will perform a physical evaluation of your face and skin and review your medical history. Once your surgery is scheduled, you can enlist the help of a friend or family member to drive you home and assist you with basic chores and tasks for the first 24 hours. While recovery from a mini facelift is not as extensive or involved as it is for a full facelift, it’s still important that you rest and not put any undue pressure on your body during the first week after surgery.
