How to Avoid a Facelift Fail

smiling mature womanWhen no one can tell that you’ve had a facelift, yet you keep getting compliments on your appearance, that’s when you know your procedure was a success. On the other hand, a facelift that makes you look “done” or unnatural is definitely a fail.

Keep these three tips in mind when planning your procedure to avoid an obvious-looking facelift.

1. Work with a Qualified Plastic Surgeon

The success of your facelift is directly related to the technical skill and qualifications of your plastic surgeon. When choosing a plastic surgeon for your facelift, make sure that he or she is board-certified and has plenty of experienced performing facial rejuvenation surgery.

2. Make Sure a Facelift Is Right for You

During your facelift consultation, it’s a good idea to ask your plastic surgeon if a facelift is the right procedure for you. In some cases, your plastic surgeon may recommend trying nonsurgical cosmetic treatments first before moving forward with a facelift. In other cases, he or she may suggest pairing various cosmetic treatments with your facelift down the road.

3. Discuss Surgical Techniques

Ask to see a few before and after photos of previous facelifts your plastic surgeon has completed to give you a better idea of his or her level of skill and expertise.

The exact surgical technique and incision placement will depend on your unique facial anatomy and cosmetic goals. Your plastic surgeon should be able to custom-tailor your procedure to help make scars as inconspicuous as possible after your facelift while meeting your individual needs.
