Why a Facelift in Houston?
Facelift surgery reduces the appearance of folds, wrinkles and loose skin that result from aging. While it won’t stop the aging process, a Houston facelift can help turn back the clock by addressing:
- Mid-face sagging
- Deep creases below the lower eyelids
- Deep creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth
- Displaced or fallen fat
- Loss of muscle tone in the lower face that has created jowls
- Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw giving the appearance of a double chin
Personalizing Your Houston Facelift
Dr. Schusterman creates a personalized facelift in Houston, focusing on specific areas the patient wishes to enhance. To determine the appropriate combination of facelift technologies, Dr. Schusterman assesses the thickness, texture and elasticity of the patient’s skin, as well as the severity of wrinkles and folds. Dr. Schusterman also considers bone structure and utilizes the patient’s natural features to enhance their new look.
The Facelift Procedure
Small incisions in skin folds or hair-bearing areas allow the facial skin to be separated from its underlying muscle. The skin and underlying muscles are tightened, then the excess skin is excised. The area is sutured snugly in place, loose bandages are applied, and the patient often returns home the day of the surgery. A Houston facelift surgery may be performed using either local or general anesthesia, in the surgeon’s office, at an outpatient facility, or at a hospital.
After Facelift Surgery
Patients are given oral pain medications for a day or two after the facelift procedure in Houston. Bruising and swelling usually subside in 7 to 14 days, at which point the patient may return to work and social situations. However, we advise patients recovering from facelift surgery to avoid excess sun exposure during recovery. Scars, which are hidden by the hairline, should fade over time. Results typically last 10 to 15 years.
