A leading plastic surgeon in Houston specializing in cosmetic surgery procedures and non-surgical rejuvenation treatments, Dr. Yarish has been practicing for over 16 years.

What You Can Do to Prepare for Your Facelift

A facelift is an effective way to erase years from your face. It resolves multiple areas of concern with just one procedure, including facial sagging, jowls, marionette lines, and even double chins. To perform a facelift, Dr. Yarish of Town & Country Plastic Surgery tightens the muscles and other tissues, and removes excess skin to create a younger appearance. Prior to your procedure, Dr. Yarish and staff will ensure you have all the information you need to prepare.

Consult the Plastic Surgeon

Scheduling a consultation with Dr. R. Scott Yarish is the first step in preparing for your facelift. You can expect to undergo a physical exam, during which Dr. Yarish will closely examine your facial bone structure and skin. You’ll also discuss your medical history, including any medical conditions you have, such as high blood pressure. Bring along a list of all medications you’re taking, including non-prescription drugs, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Additionally, you can expect to discuss your goals for your appearance with Dr. Yarish.

Make Plans for Your Recovery

Dr. Yarish and staff will let you know how long you can expect to rest at home after your facelift. You’ll need to have someone stay with you for a while to help you out around the house. Many plastic surgery patients find it helpful to prepare and freeze meals ahead of time.

Stop Smoking If Applicable

If you smoke, Dr. Yarish will likely advise you to quit ahead of your facelift. This is because smoking increases the risk of complications during the surgery and afterward. Among other problems, smoking can inhibit the healing process.

Follow Your Surgeon’s Instructions

Dr. Yarish and staff will provide you with preoperative instructions. You may be asked to stop taking certain medications for a period of time before the facelift. This decreases your risk of complications. You’ll need to avoid eating and drinking after midnight on the evening before your procedure. Additionally, you may be asked to wash your face and hair the evening prior to your procedure and the morning of it.

At Town & Country Plastic Surgery, we provide our plastic surgery patients with extensive patient education and support services, including preoperative and postoperative skin care from our medical spa team. If you have any questions about your upcoming facelift, call our Houston office at (713) 467-0146. You can also learn more about facelifts, facial implants, breast revisions, and other plastic surgery procedures on our website.

Treating Your Cellulite with Cellulaze

If you’re thinking of undergoing a Cellulaze treatment, you can look forward to a simple treatment that offers dramatic, rapid results. Cellulaze is a minimally invasive technique that Dr. R. Scott Yarish can use to address the root cause of cellulite. It involves the use of a very small laser fiber, which transfers heat to attack the fat under your skin. It also releases the fibers that pull downward on your skin, creating the unflattering dimpled appearance. This results in a smooth, even appearance.

Preparing for a Healthy Tummy Tuck Recovery

A tummy tuck is often a good choice for women who have weakened abdominal muscles due to pregnancy. It’s also popular among individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight. During a tummy tuck, Dr. R. Scott Yarish will tighten the weakened muscles, and remove excess fat and skin to improve the contour of the body. Preparing to have a healthy recovery involves following certain guidelines well before you undergo plastic surgery.

Tummy Tuck Houston - Dr. Yarish

Understand the Surgical Approach

Before undergoing any type of surgery, patients should fully understand what will happen during the procedure. Dr. Yarish may perform a partial abdominoplasty if your fat deposits are primarily located below the navel. Or, you may have a complete abdominoplasty, which is more extensive. For the latter option, you may need to have drainage tubes for a few days after the procedure.

Improve Your Overall Wellness

It’s not uncommon for individuals undergoing a tummy tuck to have followed a diet and exercise plan beforehand. However, after you’ve scheduled the surgery, it’s best not to significantly cut calories or try other drastic dieting strategies. Instead, choose healthy meals with nutrients your body needs, such as lean proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Eating well may facilitate your healing. Another way to improve your overall health is to quit smoking if applicable. In fact, Dr. Yarish will likely instruct you to quit smoking at least two weeks before your surgery. Continuing to smoke will increase your risk of complications from the anesthesia and it inhibits your body’s ability to heal.

Purchase Certain Supplies

Another way to prepare for your recovery is to fill your prescriptions in advance. Dr. R. Scott Yarish will likely prescribe pain relievers and antibiotics. He may also instruct you to have ice packs, petroleum jelly, and sterile dressings on hand. It’s a good idea to assemble some loose, comfortable clothing to wear during your recovery, and to install a shower chair and hand-held shower head in your bathroom.
