Facelift Plastic Surgery Procedures - Greensboro, North Carolina
As you age, years of UV-ray exposure, stress, and pollutants cause bothersome wrinkles to etch themselves into your skin. Your skin can make you look older than you feel. Board certified Piedmont Triad female plastic surgeon Dr. Contogiannis makes it her priority to counteract the harsh aging process by giving you a more youthful appearance through facial cosmetic surgery.
Facelifts reverse the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and daily stress by removing excess skin and sculpting the soft tissues beneath. If you have extra skin hanging from your neck, a rhytidectomy (facelift) procedure at our Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness in Greensboro may be the answer been seeking.
Your Individual Goals
During your private consultation, your goals will be discussed realistically with Greensboro plastic surgeon Dr. Contogiannis. Facelifts are often performed in conjunction with other facial surgeries, including a forehead lift (brow lift) or blepharoplasty for your eyelids. Together, you will decide which procedures she will perform in order to achieve your desired results.
About Facelift Cosmetic Surgery – Piedmont Triad
For your safety and comfort, your facelift will be performed while you are under general anesthesia at our Piedmont Triad AAAHC accredited outpatient surgical center (our Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness). Dr. Contogiannis will determine the unique details of your procedure, such as where to place incisions to minimize their visibility. She will tighten your muscle and skin tissues while removing excess skin.
Recovery from Facelift Surgery in Greensboro
After your rhytidectomy procedure at our accredited plastic surgery center in Greensboro, facelift plastic surgeon Dr. Contogiannis will probably ask you to keep your head elevated for a couple of days to prevent blood from collecting under the skin flaps. The drainage tube will generally be removed the day after your facelift procedure.
Your face may be puffy for a couple of weeks. You may also feel some numbness for a couple of weeks or months following a facelift. The scars will become less noticeable after a few weeks. At that point, most patients are very happy with the results of facelift cosmetic surgery.
