"49 Years Old, Fraxel Repair and Full Facial Fat Transfer - Louisville, KY - I chose Dr. Mizuguchi after 2 other PS consults for fraxel, fat transfer and a mini facelift. Dr. M told me that the mini lift would not result in a good long term result since I'd had weight loss surgery and my skin would not respond as others would. No one else picked up on that. He also is very kind and fun and instills confidence in you that he knows exactly what will work for you. I had the fraxel and fat transfer and I am very, very pleased. The staff at Calospa is also top notch, very careful to review the procedures thoroughly, prepare you for surgery and follow you closely afterward. I cannot recommend these folks more highly."- D. / RealSelf / Apr 15, 2015
What to Expect
Facelift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure at an accredited surgical facility where you will be under general anesthesia. With carefully placed incisions behind the ear and around the hairline, extraneous tissue, skin, and fat are removed from the face. The underlying tissue and muscles are tightened to create long-term results. The skin is repositioned and re-draped tighter for a smooth, natural appearance. Facelift surgery typically takes around four hours to complete.
After a facelift, a dressing will be placed over the surgical site and it will be replaced during the initial follow-up visit. It’s normal to experience pain and discomfort, which can be alleviated with medication prescribed by our surgeon. There should also be an expectation of swelling and bruising up to two weeks after surgery. After about two weeks, you can generally resume normal activities like going back to work and working out. After about three weeks, you should be able to notice the dramatic and natural results of the surgery. While facelifts offer long-term solutions, just like any other surgery, the effects are not permanent since the face will continue to naturally age. However, you will still look younger compared to if you had never had the surgery.
