Facelift in Evansville and Jasper, IN
Many people in Southern Indiana, Northern Kentucky or Illinois dread looking in the mirror as they grow older, as many of them often feel as though they are aging right before their very eyes. A facelift performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ryan Flannagan at Flannagan Plastic Surgery could be the solution for all Evansville and Jasper residents who want to erase the signs of aging and achieve a younger look.
What is a Facelift (Rhytidectomy)?
A facelift or rhytidectomy procedure firms, smooths, and tightens the skin on the face. It is normally performed under general anesthesia and may include an incision inside the hairline at or near your temples that extends behind your ears and into the lower scalp. This allows Dr. Flannagan to access tissue so that he can then pull it up and tighten it before trimming excess skin away.
Benefits of a Facelift
A facelift can erase years off your appearance, helping you feel more vibrant and restoring self-confidence. It can also give you a new, younger base to continue to age from, and will, therefore, allow you to continue looking younger for years to come.
Is a Facelift Right for Me?
If you have fine lines and wrinkles on your face that you would like to eliminate and maintain realistic expectations as to what a facelift can and cannot do, you might be a good candidate for this surgery.
Elements of a Facelift
A facelift requires general anesthesia to ensure your facial area is completely numb. Dr. Flannagan will then determine the best locations to make incisions that will provide you with the optimum results while also hiding the scar sites as much as possible. After making his incisions, skin and other tissue will be pulled up in order to create a smooth, younger appearance. Liposuction may be performed if needed. Finally, he will close the wounds with stitches after trimming and removing excess skin.
How Long is the Recovery After a Facelift?
It normally takes around one to two weeks for your face to return to normal. During that time, you may experience light swelling or mild stiffness, both of which can easily be managed with over-the-counter medication.
