NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 31, 2013) - Though signs of aging in the face and neck develop naturally over time, a facelift has the capacity to restore one's appearance for a more youthful look. To combat the effects that environmental factors and heredity can have on one's skin -- in addition to the natural aging process -- Dr. Stafford R. Broumand has developed a comprehensive approach to facelift surgery at his New York plastic surgery practice. While he believes that a facelift is one of the best ways to rejuvenate the face, Dr. Broumand often offers his facelift patients additional surgical and non-surgical options to maximize their results.
In a recent blog post titled "A Comprehensive Approach to Facelift Surgery," Dr. Broumand says he has found that "combining facelift surgery with a variety of other surgical and non-surgical procedures will often produce the best possible outcome" for his patients. During the consultation process, Dr. Broumand discusses with his patients all areas of aesthetic concern of the face and neck to see if they would benefit from adding an additional procedure such as a chin implant, brow lift, or eyelid surgery. Non-surgical options that may improve the overall outcome of a facelift include BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, laser skin resurfacing, and micro fat grafting.
Dr. Broumand's personalized approach to facelift surgery is complemented by his unique surgical marking technique during the pre-operative stage. While many surgeons draw surgical markings while the patient is lying down, Dr. Broumand marks all of his facelift patients while they are sitting upright and talking. In a blog titled "My Unique Facelift Technique," he explains the logic behind this approach: "All facelift procedures are performed with the patient lying down or reclining, meaning angles and degrees of skin tension will differ from a natural, upright position." In addition, if a patient is speaking with Dr. Broumand while he is making these surgical markings, he is able to see how the patient's face moves naturally and fine-tune his surgical strategy.
To help alleviate any anxieties that prospective facelift patients may have about the procedure, Dr. Broumand authored a blog titled "Recovery From Facelift Surgery." Common concerns that arise during the consultation process include how long the procedure will take, how much post-operative pain the patient can expect, and when the patient can return to work. New York plastic surgeon Stafford Broumand, MD assures his patients that during the recovery period, any swelling or bruising should quickly recede and discomfort is often easily managed with pain medication. A typical facelift recovery lasts 1-2 weeks, with most patients returning to work within ten days.
