Today facelift ranks among the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the country, especially for people above the age of 40. To achieve best outcomes, the surgeon will individualize the facelift procedure with the facial structure and features of a specific patient.
During the pre-op consultation process, the surgeon will create a customized surgical plan in discussion with the patient to achieve dramatic and natural looking outcomes from the surgery. Accomplished board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Roger Tsai provides facelift surgery to patients in West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and other towns and suburbs across the landscape.
At the time of the initial consultation, the surgeon will evaluate whether the patient is a suitable candidate for a facelift plastic surgery.
If the patient has a pre-existing medical condition that may heighten surgical risks or cause delays in healing, they may not be an appropriate candidate for a facelift. In some cases, the surgeon may need to make some adjustments before the patient can undergo this procedure.
The surgeon will carefully assess the patient’s past health records during the pre-operative consultation. They may also adjust the patient’s current med schedule in discussion with the prescribing doctor. They may order some medical tests for the patient in some cases.
The surgeon will recommend the most appropriate facelift technique or a combination of procedures depending on the patient’s facial profile, age, skin type, and level of skin laxity.
Assessing Aesthetic Goals
The surgeon will try to assess the patient’s reasons for seeking a facelift procedure and examine all aspects of their face during the consultation process. While some patients may only be seeking minor facial improvements or maintenance procedures, others may want more remarkable outcomes from the facelift.
The surgeon will develop an individualized surgical plan on the basis of the specific aesthetic requirements and goals of the patient. They will use the feedback collected during the consultation and incorporate elements from it in the surgery plan to offer the patient the best possible results from the surgery.
The surgeon will use the consultation process as a chance to disseminate information on various facets of facelift surgery to the patient enabling them to make a well-informed decision. They motivate the patient to ask questions and express concerns regarding the procedure and address these in a comprehensive and detailed manner.
A dedicated surgeon will understand the patient’s concerns thoroughly and address these in an in-depth way. They may also show the patient before and after pictures of previous facelift patients as well as testimonials of past patients to enable them to develop realistic expectations from the facelift surgery.
The patient will receive detailed pre and post-operative guidelines from the surgeon to make preparations for the surgery and the recovery process. Other crucial aspects such as surgery costs, payment methods, and financing methods will also be taken up during the consultation process.
