Preparing For Your Facelift Surgery

Dr. Pugash will assess the condition of your skin and the severity of wrinkles and folds. Your hairline will be examined to determine where incisions can be placed. The structure of your face will be considered to tailor your surgery to you.

Depending on your aesthetic concerns and needs, facelift surgery might be combined with other procedures to correct eyebrow position, baggy upper and lower eyelids, and wrinkling of the lower eyelids and lips. Some of the treatments that can be performed in conjunction with facelift include eyelid surgery, facial implants and forehead lift in Vancouver. Dr. Pugash will review these procedures with you so you can make the best possible choices.

Facelift Surgery with Dr. Pugash

Dr. Eric Pugash provides a facelift procedure that includes removal of excess fat, tightening of the underlying muscle layers and removal of loose skin. In some cases fat grafting may be carried out to restore fullness in areas of hollowing. The resulting scars are hidden under the chin and around the ear. As a result, other people usually are unable to tell that Dr. Pugash’s Vancouver face lift patients have undergone surgery. They simply look more rested, youthful and refreshed.

In some cases a short scar technique may be used to eliminate all scarring behind the ear. The short scar facelift technique allows women to wear their hair up without concern for visible scars.

Complications and Risks

Dr. Eric Pugash and his medical team observe the strictest safety and sterility protocols in order to promote the safety of their facelift Vancouver patients. However, as with all surgical procedures, the risks cannot be eliminated altogether. Potential risks and complications of facelift surgery include reactions to the anesthetic, bleeding that requires a return to the operating room, infection, poor scarring, hair and skin loss, nerve injuries, and unsatisfactory aesthetic results.

The results of facelift surgery are meant to last years. Of course your general health, changes in weight, and life events all affect how you age. Many people are concerned that they are committing themselves to a series of operations once they have a facelift. This is not the case; you need never have anything further done, or you may decide to have additional procedures as the years pass.

After Your Face Lift Procedure

Facelift surgery is usually carried out as a day care procedure, although patients may choose to spend the first night in the clinic. Most patients who undergo face lift in Vancouver are presentable within three weeks or so after surgery.
