Facelift Surgery with Dr. Vistnes
With age, it is not only life’s serious responsibilities that you have to worry about. You are likely to worry about wrinkles and sagging facial skin as well. The smart thing to do, though, is not to fuss over it so much. Why so? Because stress will only make things worse for your facial skin. The smarter thing to do is to consider undergoing a facelift surgery – medically termed as rhytidectomy.
At the San Francisco Clinic of Dr. Vistnes, facelift is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. This is so as the surgery is highly effective in rejuvenating facial skin for both male and female patients. Here are some of the frequently asked questions regarding face lift at the clinic of Dr. Vistnes:
What causes wrinkles and other facial skin issues?
The natural process of aging is the usual main culprit. Other factors that may contribute to damaging your facial skin include daily stress, solar exposure and genetics. One factor may be the overriding reason for skin issues, but it is normally due to a combination of several factors.
What happens when you have facial skin issues?
They will definitely affect the way you appear to others. As the facial issues worsen, you are likely to experience a gradual decline in your self-confidence.
Do neck lift and face lift always come together?
Not necessarily. However, Dr. Vistnes typically performs the two surgeries at the same time, as they complement each other for the common purpose of repositioning and tightening the sagging skin tissues in these areas: neck, checks, jowls and jaw line. That said, rhytidectomy is also performed as a sole procedure when only the facial skin area needs attention.
What is the type of anesthesia used during surgery?
General anesthesia is typically the one used for rhytidectomy. This means that you won’t feel any pain or discomfort during the entire procedure.
Why choose Dr. Vistnes over other surgeons?
For one thing, Dr. Vistnes is a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon with a great level of training and experience in performing facelift surgeries. Moreover, he is fully dedicated in performing minimally invasive surgeries that are satisfactory to the particular aesthetic goals of each patient.
