Everything You Should Know About A Facelift

by | Dec 8, 2016 | Cosmetic Surgery

If you have excess or sagging skin in your neck and face, you might have considered getting a facelift. While it a surgical procedure, there are some things you should know before making a final decision. You can find a cosmetic surgeon to give you a facelift in Glenview.


Unfortunately, because this is a cosmetic procedure, most insurances will not cover the costs. You may have to pay for the procedure, the hospitalization if needed, anesthesia, and other fees as well. The good news is that some doctors offer financing and payment plans. Before you have the procedure done, you should speak with the surgeon and discuss all costs that you might have to pay. You should also come up with a plan on how to pay the bill. Even if a surgeon’s price is lower than another surgeon, you should make sure you feel comfortable enough with the surgeon doing the facelift.

The Procedure

Usually, the procedure can be done on patients that are nonsmokers. Potential patients should also have no medical conditions that can cause issues with their healing process. Your surgeon can either put you under or keep you awake and sedate you during the procedure. They may need to transfer fat around your face, or recontour your face during the procedure. Your surgeon will create an incision along your hairline.

Depending on the results that you would like, and what you want corrected, that determines the degree of the incision. The incision will close and heal along your ear and hairline, making it next to impossible to notice. Many times, you won’t even know that you ever had an incision there. If you are correcting the sagging in your neck, they may need to make an incision under your chin. This incision can be closed with stitches or other adhesives. The procedure is simple and can be done in under a few hours.
