Facelifts are very individualized procedures. In your initial consultation Dr. Lesavoy will evaluate your face, including the skin and underlying bone, and discuss your goals for the surgery.
Dr. Lesavoy will check for medical conditions that could cause problems during or after surgery, such as uncontrolled high blood pressure, blood clotting problems, or the tendency to form excessive scars. Be sure to tell Dr. Lesavoy if you smoke or are taking any drugs or medications, especially aspirin or other drugs that affect clotting.
If you decide to have a facelift, Dr. Lesavoy will explain the techniques and anesthesia he will use, the type of facility where the surgery will be performed, and the risks and costs involved. Don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Lesavoy any questions you may have, especially those regarding your expectations and concerns about the results.
