How Is a Facelift Procedure Personalized to Meet Individual Needs?

Featured Image

Facelift surgery is a popular treatment that has been around for decades. This cosmetic procedure involves removing excess fat and skin while tightening the facial muscles to achieve a more youthful look. At Alford Facial Plastic Surgery, we understand there's no one-size-fits-all solution for aging. Double-board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eugene Alford takes great care to meet the unique needs of each patient.

Want to know more about personalized facelift surgery? Here's a breakdown of our approach in Houston, TX. Call now to book a consultation and start your journey toward a refreshed appearance.

A comprehensive consultation

Facelift surgery is a major decision and should never be taken lightly. That's why we always start with a thorough consultation to understand your goals, concerns, and medical history. During this session, you can expect:

  • A review of your overall health: We'll discuss any medical conditions or previous surgeries that may impact your eligibility. Patients with heart disease, diabetes, or high blood pressure may not be suitable candidates at this time.
  • Examination: Dr. Gene will examine the structure of your face, including skin quality, underlying muscle tone, and bone structure. We then identify specific areas that could use improvements, such as the cheeks, jowls, or neckline.
  • Discussion about expectations: It's important to have realistic expectations about facelift surgery. Our staff can explain what can and cannot be achieved, and provide before and after photos for reference.
  • Personalized facelift: Based on our findings, we'll create a custom treatment that addresses your many goals. This may include additional cosmetic procedures such as neck lift or brow lift to achieve the best overall outcomes possible.

Common concerns addressed by facelift surgery

As we age, our skin loses elasticity, and wrinkles and sagging become more prominent. Facelift surgery is designed to manage these issues and more. Here's a look at what can be improved with a facelift in Houston, TX:

  • Deep wrinkles and folds, including smile lines and nasolabial folds
  • Jowls and sagging skin in the jawline
  • Loss of definition around the chin and neck area
  • Excess fat under the chin (double chin)
  • Facial asymmetry
  • Loss of muscle tone

The great part about facelift surgery is that Dr. Gene knows how to address one or all of these problems through different approaches. For example, a traditional facelift can significantly improve skin laxity and muscle tone, while a lower facelift primarily targets the jawline and neck. We also offer mini facelifts for those who want a less invasive option.

The importance of aftercare

Even when working with a skilled surgeon, a cosmetic procedure requires proper aftercare to ensure smooth healing and optimal results. Alford Facial Plastic Surgery provides detailed instructions on how to care for your facelift incisions, manage any discomfort, and prevent complications. We'll also schedule follow-up appointments with Dr. Gene to monitor your progress. Rest assured that we're committed to supporting you in your journey.
