Getting a natural looking facelift in Charlotte means finding the right surgeon.
If you want a facelift in Charlotte NC, it almost certainly goes without saying that you want a natural looking facelift in Charlotte. Although millions of people want plastic surgery, as a general rule they don’t want to look like they’ve had plastic surgery. The advantage that a facelift has over such procedures as the nose job or chin implant is that both you and your surgeon know exactly what the result should look like — the way you looked ten or fifteen years ago.
That doesn’t mean a natural looking facelift in Charlotte is easy to accomplish. The surgeon needs to know the aging patterns of facial skin in general, and be able to understand the aging pattern of your own face in particular. With this, he or she can customize the facelift procedure in order to reverse the effects of aging. This will involve not just surgery, but also possibly some BOTOX and fillers such as fat or hyaluronic acid products like Restylane or Perlane.
Taking care of yourself during a facelift
As usual, you shouldn’t smoke or drink for some time before or after the procedure. The pain lasts for about two days, but you shouldn’t try to drive until about five days have passed. Around the fifth day, the swelling starts to go down, and you can start putting makeup on after the first week or so. In a couple of weeks, you should be able to see the results properly.
