Facelift Series: Preparing for Your Facelift Consultation

Don’t look older than you feel. If time has changed your face, turn back the clock with a facelift. Patients see a dramatic transformation after surgery, often appearing 8-10 years younger than they did before. This procedure tightens up facial skin, lifts underlying muscles, and repositions fat and tissues, restoring a more youthful look. If you want to reclaim a more youthful appearance, come see us for a facelift consultation and find out if you’re a good candidate. This guide will help you prepare for your consultation at Clinton Plastic Surgery.

Learn the Facelift Basics

You don’t have to be an expert in plastic surgery to come in for a facelift consultation, that’s our job! Many of our patients choose to read up a bit on the procedure before their consultation though. This can help you to better understand the procedure and to determine if you’re interested before you come in and may make it easier to talk with Dr. Clinton about the procedure. Our website has a facelift page and is an excellent starting point for your research. You can also find detailed facelift information from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Write Down Your Questions

Do you have any questions about facelift surgery? Write them down and bring the list with you when you come in. Your consultation will be a busy time and many patients forget their questions in the excitement. We welcome all questions, big and small.

Gather Medical Information

We’ll discuss your relevant medical history in depth during your consultation. Bring a list of any medications (prescription and over-the-counter) and supplements you may be using. Come ready to discuss your health history and medical conditions.

Think About Your Goals

What do you hope to achieve from your facelift? We want to help you achieve your ideal look, but first, we need to know what that look is. Think about your goals for surgery. What areas concern you? What do you hope to look like after surgery? Often, Dr. Clinton will recommend complementary procedures to enhance your facelift results. If you want to rejuvenate other areas, like the brows or eyes, let us know during your consultation. We’ll work together to create a surgical plan that addresses your areas of concern.
