Here are some frequently asked questions about a facelift in Charlotte NC, along with the answers.
I’m told that I shouldn’t smoke for a couple of weeks before having a facelift done. Does this also apply to e-cigarettes?
I’m afraid it does. Although one of the most destructive aspects of smoking regular cigarettes is the inhalation of combustion by-products, nicotine in any form is a vasoconstrictor. This means it causes blood vessels to contract, which decreases the blood supply to outlying parts of your body such as the skin. This in turn slows the healing process.
I’ve heard that a bad nose job can be revised after a year. Can a bad facelift also be redone?
Yes, but unfortunately it takes a lot longer than a year before you can have a facelift redone. The skin of your face has to be allowed to age again. Very few surgeons are capable of correcting a facelift that has been done within the past year. It really is better to find a surgeon who you’re sure is going to get it right the first time.
I have a lot of loose skin under my chin and on my neck. Can I just have this fixed?
Of course. All facial plastic surgery is customized to suit the patient.
