What Can I Expect During Facelift Surgery?
There are several ways to perform facelift surgery, and Mr. Salerno can personalize your surgery according to your individual conditions, aesthetic goals, and preferences. During a typical rhytidectomy procedure, incisions can be hidden around the ears and/or within the hairline to minimize visible scarring. The skin can then be manipulated to smooth visible signs of aging and help create a younger-looking aesthetic.
Am I a Good Candidate for Facelift Surgery?
Patients who have visible signs of aging and/or loose skin around the face, jawline, and neck and who desire surgical intervention to correct these conditions may be candidates for rhytidectomy surgery. The best way to find out if this procedure can fulfill your aesthetic goals is to schedule a consultation with Mr. Salerno and our medical team at our Melbourne office and have your individual condition and preferences evaluated.
If you qualify for facelift surgery, we can discuss your surgical options as well as what to expect, how to prepare, and all relevant safety information that may apply.
What is the Recovery Like?
The recovery and healing process can be different for each patient, and our medical team will let you know what to expect after your procedure. Mild bruising, swelling, and discomfort may be present afterward, and we can provide instructions on any necessary aftercare that may be required for your incision sites to reduce the risk of infection or complications.
Once the initial healing process is complete, most patients are able to fully enjoy their results. Although the aging process cannot be completely prevented, the results of your procedure could last for the long term.
