Are you considering a cosmetic facelift procedure in Kelowna? Here’s everything you need to know before booking your treatment.

3 Things to Know Before Scheduling a Facelift

Today, many patients are looking to counteract the effects that aging has on their bodies and appearance. While there is no magic formula, there are certain procedures that can help significantly minimize the signs of aging on your face and body.

One of the most popular treatments is a facelift, as it can help you feel more youthful and confident. However, before you choose to go under the knife, here’s what you need to know about this procedure:

1. You Must Work With a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

One of the most important things to remember before undergoing a facelift is that you MUST work with a board-certified plastic surgeon. This is the only way to protect your health and well-being. Why? A board-certified surgeon knows how to:

  • Handle any emergency situation
  • Provide you with the most aesthetically pleasing results
  • Minimize your surgical risks
  • Provide you with a high-quality and safe cosmetic surgery experience

Remember: Working with a board-certified plastic surgeon can ensure that your surgeon has completed a highly regulated plastic surgery residency training program and has passed rigorous national exams that require all plastic surgeons to meet a high standard of technical ability and knowledge.

Choosing The Right Surgeon


2. Ask Questions

During your in-depth facelift consultation, you will have a chance to thoroughly discuss the ins and outs of the procedure with your plastic surgeon. This is your opportunity to ask as many questions as possible and to talk about any concerns you may be having.

Some of the questions you may want to consider asking, include:

  1. Am I a good candidate for a facelift?
  2. How long is the recovery period, and what kind of help will I need during this time?
  3. What are the risks and complications associated with a facelift?
  4. What can I do if I am unhappy with my results?
  5. Do you have any before and after photos I can look at?
  6. How many facelifts have you performed?

Remember: The only way you’ll achieve the best results from your facelift is if you and your plastic surgeon communicate openly and work together to achieve realistic goals.


3. Plan To Take Time Off Work

A facelift is a surgical procedure, which means that you will need to take time off to recover afterwards. Typically, the recovery period is 1-2 weeks. Remember that it is very important to let your body heal fully in order to enjoy the best and safest results.

Keeping Up With Your Post-Treatment Appointments

It can take up to one year for you to experience the full results of your facelift. One way of tracking these results is by following up with all of your post-op appointments.
