It also works well in removing excess fat and tightens muscles beneath the face and neck. A neck lift too helps in reduce the appearance of sagging jowls and loose skin.
What factors are considered before surgery?
Sometimes it is not just about beauty; there are cases where patients have witnessed declining physical beauty, in that case our expert have always been there to give them the right advice. Surgeons at BLK Aesthetic Surgery Centre perform facelifts in combination with forehead and eyebrow lifts to help regain one’s youthful appearance without distorting or changing the core facial features. However, before surgery a plastic surgeon will evaluate the patient’s skin type, bone structure and medical history. This includes:
- Blood pressure
- Medication taken
- Cigarette smoking and drug use history
- Skin conditions
Depending on the above, the doctor may suggest the type of anaesthesia to use, potential complications and recovery time.
