More Facelift Information
A brief overview.
If you are considering facelift & neck lift surgery we encourage you to schedule a
private consultation with Dr. Naficy or another equally qualified facial plastic
surgeon who regularly performs facelift & neck lift surgery. There is a great
variety in facial features and each procedure must be custom tailored for the
patient to get the best possible result. During the consultation visit Dr. Naficy will
listen to your concerns and discuss your options. He will tell you whether you are
a suitable candidate for facelift & neck lift surgery and inform you of the potential
risks of the procedure. Facelift & neck lift costs will be also discussed at that
visit. . . . read more.
Facelift and neck lift incisions are carefully placed within the natural creases in
front, within, and behind the ear. After adequate tightening of the deeper
structures, excess skin is removed from both sides and the incisions are carefully
repaired. Dr. Naficy uses the most meticulous technique and the finest sutures
for closure of his incisions. . . . read more.
Neck lift surgery is typically performed under IV sedation or general anesthesia, under the care of an experienced anesthesia provider. In addition to the anesthesia, numbing medication is used in the neck to ensure that you are comfortable when wake up from the procedure. When the procedure is finished, the anesthesia medication is discontinued and you begin to wake up. The medications used for anesthesia tend clear the system rather quickly, and most of our patients are able to go home in 30 - 45 minutes after the procedure is completed. Our anesthesia team has over 50 years of combined experience providing advanced anesthesia and all of our anesthesia providers are also on staff at the University of Washington or other regional medical centers. . . . read more.
There is usually some tightness around the ears and jaw-line after the surgery.
This can be controlled with prescription pain medication, although it is often mild
enough to treat with just Tylenol. A fluffy bandage dressing is worn for 1-2 days.
Discoloration and swelling around the face and neck, when present, will usually
improve over 7-10 days at which point most people can return to work and social
activities. . . . read more.
