Questions to Ask About Your Facelift Recovery

The aging process involves a number of aesthetically displeasing changes to the facial area, including the development of deep creases, facial sagging, loose skin, fatty deposits, and decreased volume. A facelift can resolve all of these issues in just one procedure. If you’re thinking about having a facelift, it’s best to consult Dr. R. Scott Yarish sooner rather than later. This is because ideal candidates for facelifts have begun to show signs of aging, yet still have skin elasticity.

Which Side Effects May Occur?

Before having a facelift, it’s advisable to talk to Dr. Yarish about the recovery process. You should be aware of the side effects that may occur. Facelift patients typically report a mild degree of pain after the procedure. Dr. Yarish will send you home with a prescription for pain relievers to eliminate any discomfort. You should also expect to experience some swelling and discoloration. These issues typically resolve within two to three weeks. In the meantime, keeping your head elevated with multiple pillows and applying ice packs will reduce the swelling.

What Can I do to Facilitate My Recovery?

The best way to facilitate your recovery is to follow Dr. Yarish’s post-operative instructions. Dr. Yarish and his staff will advise you on caring for the surgical site, using medications, and preventing infections. Patients often do not require the placement of drains to eliminate excess fluids and blood; however, you will be given instructions on caring for the drains if you do need them. Additionally, patients who are recovering from any type of surgery are typically asked to avoid alcohol and to stop smoking, if applicable.

When Can I Go Back to Work?

Some patients may return to light work activities in about two to three weeks. Full recovery may take a month. However, each patient is different. You’ll have several follow-up appointments with Dr. Yarish during which you’ll receive personalized advice.

How Men Are Using Radiesse

Radiesse is a dermal filler that effectively reduces the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles and creases. While dermal fillers have long been popular among female patients of medical spas, men also use Radiesse to help them look as young as they feel. As soon as Radiesse is injected, the dermal filler immediately adds volume to the face and it stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen. This means that men may enjoy a younger-looking face for up to a year before an additional treatment is needed.

You can learn more about the use of Radiesse for male medical spa patients by watching this brief video. You’ll also see some of the factors that can contribute to the development of wrinkles, such as excessive sun exposure and alcohol consumption.

Deciding if a Tummy Tuck Is Right for You

An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is a procedure that involves tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess skin and fat for a streamlined silhouette. Before deciding to have a tummy tuck, you’ll need to carefully weigh the benefits and risks with the help of Dr. R. Scott Yarish at Town & Country Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa. Dr. Yarish will also need to review your medical history to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure.

Have You Experienced Significant Weight Loss?

A tummy tuck may be right for you if you’ve lost a great deal of weight. Many women have tummy tucks after losing weight following labor and delivery. This procedure is particularly ideal for mothers because their abdominal wall muscles have been severely stretched and pulled apart. Diet and exercise can facilitate weight loss, yet only a surgical procedure can repair the muscles. This type of plastic surgery is also ideal for anyone who has succeeded in losing a significant amount of weight and is troubled by the appearance of loose, excess skin.

Are You Planning to Have Children or Lose Weight?

New mothers who are planning to have more children in the future may wish to wait to have a tummy tuck. This is because the abdominal wall muscles will become stretched again during the next pregnancy. Additionally, individuals who have already lost weight, yet plan to lose even more should wait until they have reached their weight loss goals.

Are You in Good Overall Health?

Inform Dr. Yarish of your full medical history. The best candidates for a tummy tuck are generally healthy individuals who do not smoke. If you currently smoke, you might consider quitting. Smoking inhibits the healing process after the surgery and it increases the risk of complications.

Dr. Yarish at Town & Country Plastic Surgery can help you decide if a tummy tuck is right for you.
