Dr. Yousefi offers facelift surgery for patients in the Washington, DC, Vienna, Arlington and surrounding areas of Northern Virginia.
A neater, more youthful appearance of the face and neck can be achieved with facelift and neck lift surgery. Facial features that have been affected by age can be drastically redefined while simultaneously improving self-esteem. A facelift can range from a minimally invasive mini-facelift to a full face and neck lift. It may also be combined with other procedures such as eyelid surgery, brow lift, and skin resurfacing.
How is a Facelift in Vienna Performed?
During your consultation, Dr. Yousefi will examine your bone structure and your skin's texture and elasticity. The changes you hope to make in your appearance will be discussed as well as the details of the procedure, the risks associated with the operation, and the changes you can expect from the surgery. It is important to have realistic expectations. A face-lift can improve your overall appearance; however it will not stop the aging process. Sometimes fat injections to the deep lines are recommended to achieve a younger and natural look without the appearance of an operated fake look.
The procedure begins with an incision around the ears. For those of you who do not smoke at all the incisions can be made partly inside the ear (tragal incision) to hide the scars even more. The muscle is first pulled and tightened and then the excess skin is removed.
What Can I Expect After a Facelift in Arlington?
Following surgery, a small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin behind your ear to drain any blood that might collect there. Dr. Yousefi will also wrap your head loosely in bandages to minimize bruising and swelling. The dressing and the small drains are removed the day after surgery. Discomfort is usually minimal. Most patients can return to work in one week. Your desired look will take shape approximately 3-6 weeks following your facelift as the swelling and bruising fade.
How Much Does a Facelift Cost in Vienna?
The cost for a facelift depends on which procedures you choose a mini face lift, a full face lift, a neck lift or any combination of other procedures. Dr. Yousefi can discuss all of your pricing and financing options at your initial facelift consultation.
