Frequently asked questions about face and cheek surgery in Charlotte NC
Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions about face and cheek surgery.
If you get an unsuccessful facelift, how long do you have to wait to have it redone?
The news isn’t good. If your facelift doesn’t turn out right, you pretty much have to wait for your face to age again to have it undone. Under the right circumstances, a really good facial plastic surgeon might be able to revise a facelift, but it’s better to find someone who’ll get it right the first time. (About 95% of patients who get them say they’re worth it, so the odds are in your favor.)
I think I just need the skin tightened under my jawline. Can this be done?
Any face, brow or neck lift should be customized to suit whatever your needs may be. Your surgeon should be able to tell you if the problem is loose skin, muscle separation or extra fat under the jaw.
Can cheek implants make me look younger?
Yes. They fill out your face just enough to get rid of hollow appearance that comes with age. You’ll need the right sort of implant for this, of course. The surgeon should be able to either choose a pair for you or have them custom made. Cheek implants can also correct any facial asymmetry you might have.
