Facelift Preparation

So, you have been thinking about getting a facelift for a while and you have finally decided to do it. Because the cost of a facelift in Mexico is so much more affordable than it is in the United States, you have decided to come here for your surgery.

What now?

The first thing that you have to do as part of your facelift preparation is book yourself in for a consultation with a plastic surgeon. Make sure that the surgeon is experienced enough with this type of surgery so that you are not exposing yourself to any unnecessary facelift risks and side effects. It is also important that you feel comfortable with your plastic surgeon and can easily talk to him about any issues that come up.

As part of your facelift preparation you will need to start preparing your body for surgery. If you are a smoker, you will have to stop smoking. If you take certain medications that can negatively affect your facelift recovery, you will also have to stop taking them or look at taking alternatives.

So that the surgeon knows you are a good candidate for a facelift, he will examine your face and facial structure to ensure that you are showing enough signs of aging to warrant surgery. He will also discuss your reasons for a facelift with you and explain what this treatment can and can’t do. It may turn out that you require another type of cosmetic procedure such as an eyelid lift or nose surgery. These may be done at the same time or instead of a rhytidectomy.

Once you have got to this point of your facelift preparation, you can decide on the type of facelift you need in order to achieve your desired outcome. This will depend to some extent on your facial anatomy and certain physical aspects such as location of hairline and skin elasticity.

The plastic surgeon will explain exactly what happens during the facelift procedure and give you a detailed list of pre-operative instructions that you need to follow. You may also be required to take some standard blood tests before the surgery.

Your facelift preparation is not just about preparing for the day of surgery but making sure you know what to expect while you are recovering from you facelift. You will need to prepare your recovery space so you are not worried or stressed about anything during this time.

Don’t forget to enjoy yourself at this time! It is better to be relaxed before the big day and where better to have an amazing time than Mexico?
