What to Expect from Your Facelift Consultation
- Posted on: Nov 30 2017
Let’s face it; nobody likes to age. However, unless you can conjure up some magical spell or potion, you are going to have to come to grips with the fact that no matter how much you don’t want to, you are still going to age. If you have started to notice an increase in elasticity and collagen loss around your face, Dr. Benjamin Dunkley may recommend a variety of different treatments to give you a more youthful, rejuvenated look including a facelift.
Just like with any surgical procedure, Dr. Benjamin Dunkley will require that you come in for an initial consultation. This consultation will help him review your medical history, perform a brief examination, take a closer look at your skin, and give you a list of medications and preparatory tips to use before surgery.
If you have a prior medical history or if you have had previous surgeries, Dr. Dunkley will need to know about it to make sure that you are not only healthy enough for surgery but that it is right for you.
Dr. Dunkley will also perform a physical examination to assess the face and take a closer look at your skin.
Medications and Tips
We encourage our patients to get any medications filled before surgery— that way when you get home, you can rest without having to worry about going to the pharmacy. During your consultation, we will go over medications along with recovery tips to ensure that when you are sent home, you have the smoothest recovery possible.
Depending on your age and the condition your skin is in, Dr. Benjamin Dunkley will decide whether or not a facelift is a right procedure for you. Please come to your consultation.
