At Northwest Plastic Surgery Associates, we firmly believe that the best patient is a patient who thoroughly understands the procedure he or she is considering, especially when that procedure is as delicate and involved as facelift surgery. Our team of experienced plastic surgery professionals comprises plastic surgeons and other highly trained staff members who provide comprehensive patient education about facelift surgery, taking the time to answer questions, address concerns, and inform patients openly and honestly about both the benefits and risks associated with the procedure.
During consultations between our doctors and patients at our surgical center in Missoula, facelift side effects are discussed in detail so that patients know precisely what to expect after their surgeries. While our plastic surgeons have the skill and experience necessary to minimize the risk of more serious complications, some side effects are to be expected after facelift surgery. In most cases, these side effects are mild and temporary, especially if patients follow the post-operative instructions we provide to the letter.
Before committing to undergo facelift surgery, you should understand that, as with any surgical procedure, some side effects should be expected as they are natural and, in some cases, inevitable. These side effects can generally be managed with relative ease and will subside in the days and weeks after surgery. Please keep in mind that proper healing depends on how closely you follow the instructions provided to you after surgery. Following these instructions will not only promote quick, comfortable healing with minimal side effects, but also help to ensure that you achieve the optimal aesthetic results of your facelift surgery.
You may experience any or all of the following side effects after you undergo facelift surgery:
If any of the above side effects persist for more than a few weeks, then you are urged to contact our practice immediately.
