In todays society, more and more cosmetic surgeons, like Dr. Richard Swift, one of NYC’s foremost Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons, is asked about facelift procedures. Many more women are considering facial enhancement through a facelift, and many women are expecting to be able to achieve amazingly glamorous results within a course of a few weeks. Surgeons like Dr. Richard Swift ask their patients to truly understand the gravity of such a procedure, as well as make themselves fully aware of things like healing time, realistic results, side effects, and downtime, before undergoing a life altering cosmetic enhancement procedure, like a facelift.
In Dr. Richard Swift’s opinion, a facelift is by far one of the best procedure a woman (or man) can get in order to lift, and revitalize the facial tissue, and restore a more aesthetically appealing, youthful look, through surgical means. Having said that many women in today’s world seem to be rushing procedures like a facelift and believe the healing and downtime can be reduced to a few weeks. A facelift is a fully-invasive facial lifting procedure, that will allow women to take years off their faces, and in almost all cases, provide them a beautiful, aesthetically appealing look.
The most important thing for women to realize is that a facelift procedure takes time to heal. Although women will start to see results within a few weeks, for the full facial swelling, bruising, and redness to alleviate patients should allow a FULL FOUR TO SIX MONTHS of downtime! Dr. Richard Swift, would like women to be aware that the full recovery period of 4-6 months is the amount of time that women should allot in order for them to see the full revitalizing affects of the procedure. For many women timing a facelift procedure around any big event or holiday, such as New Years, or Christmas or even a High School or College Reunion, the best thing they can do is allow as much time for healing as possible. This ensures that the procedure can heal fully, and properly, and any side effects or issues that need to be dealt with by you and your surgeon have enough time to be properly handled.
For Dr. Richard Swift the facelift procedure is one of the best restorative and revitalizing procedures any women (or man) can decide to get.
