What Other Patients Say
From start to finish the entire experience couldn’t have been easier. Consultations were never rushed. All aspects of surgery were discussed and I felt completely at ease with my decision. Two months after surgery and I couldn’t be happier.
I knew the minute I walked out of his office I would be using Dr. Izquierdo. I had met with 5 other doctors for the same surgery and he met all expectations start to finish.
Having surgery of any kind is scary, but Dr. Izquierdo is very comforting and reassuring making this very first elective experience easier.
Your Face Lift Procedure
Face Lift surgery requires 3-4 hours of surgery in an out-patient surgical facility under general anesthesia. The face lift scars are typically located in the temple hair line and the folds in front and behind the ears. At times Dr. Izquierdo may suggest surgery for the eyelids, forehead, and neck to produce a better balance of your facial features. Liposuction may also be suggested to achieve a better contour of the neck and jowls.
“Beautiful results! Dr. Izquierdo did an amazing job and the office staff was extremely helpful and supportive. So happy I took the leap.”
Face Lift Recovery
You will be wrapped around your head and neck with a padded gauze dressing to minimize any movement of the face and neck. The operated areas will be swollen and may be bruised. You will see Dr. Izquierdo one day after your surgery and for several more office visits the first few weeks following surgery. Face lift scars are usually hidden, but scarring can be unpredictable. Light exercise may be started 2-3 weeks following surgery. Patients are advised to avoid strenuous physical exercise for the first month. Healing will continue over the next 3-4 months
