How to Get The Best Facelift Results

Are you considering a facelift? Here are some simple tips on how to prepare for your cosmetic procedure so you can enjoy the safest, most beautiful results. 

Facelifts are one of the most frequently requested cosmetic procedures in Canada and worldwide, and while it is a safe and effective way to restore a natural, more youthful appearance, it’s important to talk to your plastic surgeon before deciding whether this is the right procedure for you.

There are many factors you must take into consideration before deciding if you’re a good candidate for this treatment, including your:

  • age
  • genetics
  • lifestyle habits
  • skin quality

Is a Facelift Right For Me?


3 Things You Must Do Before Your Facelift Surgery

Facelifts are a very popular and effective way of helping patients look and feel years younger. They can be used to address a number of cosmetic concerns, including:

  • unwanted facial wrinkles
  • loose facial skin and muscles
  • jowls
  • loss of chin and neck contours

While this is one of the safest cosmetic procedures (when performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon), it is still surgery, which is why it’s crucial to look after your skin both before and after your treatment to ensure the safest, most satisfying results.

Here are three simple things to do before your Edmonton facelift procedure to get the best results possible:


1. Stop Smoking

If you are a smoker, your plastic surgeon will most likely advise you to quit your habit at least 14 days before undergoing this cosmetic procedure. This is because the chemicals in cigarettes can negatively affect your recovery process by:

  • constricting your blood vessels and increasing your risk of developing blood clots
  • destroying your blood circulation
  • increasing your risk of developing a post-surgery infection
  • preventing or slowing down wound healing

Why You Should Stop Smoking


2. Take Extra Care of Your Skin and Body

While you don’t necessarily need to ‘prepare’ your skin and body before a facelift, taking good care of it prior to your procedure can ensure you get more effective, beautiful, and longer-lasting results. Remember to:

  • stay hydrated
  • get good sleep
  • cut back on anxiety
  • use high-quality facial care products that will help you enhance the elasticity of your skin before the procedure.

Preparing For A Facelift


3. Maintain a Healthy and Steady Weight

Maintaining a healthy and steady weight prior to and after your facelift is extremely important for ensuring the longevity of your results. Any dramatic changes in your weight can cause unwanted alterations in your facelift results (such as increased amount of loose or sagging skin).

REMEMBER: If you’re planning on losing weight before your procedure, then it’s absolutely crucial to talk to your plastic surgeon first because this may significantly change the facelift plan he/she has created for you.
