What to expect during your initial consultation
It is important that you discuss all of your questions and concerns during an initial consultation with our female ABPS Board Certified plastic surgeon. She can evaluate the condition of your face (and underlying bone), as well as discuss your expectations and goals for facelift Naperville, IL surgery.
In addition, our cosmetic surgeon will discuss your medical history and any current medical conditions you are facing.
How is a Facelift Performed?
The facelift Naperville surgery will be performed in our fully AAAHC accredited surgical facility, an outpatient surgery center, or a hospital. Either local anesthesia or general anesthesia will be given to the patient.
The procedure will take several hours to be performed. In most cases, the plastic surgeon will make an incision along the hairline at the temples, extending from the natural line in front of the ear and continue along the earlobe. She will then separate the skin from the fat. The fat will be trimmed or suctioned out from around the neck and chin (i.e. liposuction). The muscles are then tightened and the skin is pulled back; excess skin is trimmed. The cosmetic surgeon then stitches up the incision.
