Face Lift Surgery in Naples
Gardner Plastic Surgery meets with their Naples patients prior to every procedure for a one-on-one consultation to determine their aesthetic goals. Then, he develops a personalized treatment plan that will help them achieve their goals.
During the procedure, he begins surgery by carefully concealing incisions in front of or behind the ears. Next, he gently tightens loose skin and extracts excess tissue if necessary. In some instances, he may suggest patients combine their facelift surgery with liposuction to remove fat tissues along the jaw line, which can cause patients to develop a “double chin” appearance.
He may also suggest patients undergo other facelift techniques, such as endoscopic facelift or short-scar face lift surgery. These techniques treat minor to moderate signs of aging and can offer patients the advantage of shortened recovery periods.
Recovering from Face Lift Surgery
Once Dr. Gardner is done performing facelift surgery, he wraps patients in large, fluffy dressings to minimize swelling and encourage faster recovery periods. Dr. Gardner's patients usually require two weeks of rest before being able to return to their daily activities; however, swelling may persist four to six weeks post-operation.
As with any surgical procedure, there is risk for complications, including infection. Dr. Gardner has years of experience successfully performing surgery and works diligently to help patients enjoy a healthy, pleasant recovery.
The decision to undergo face lift is a life-changing experience. Once healed, many patients feel more confident and proud of their appearance than ever before. Dr. Gardner takes great pride in helping his patients regain their self-esteem and improve their appearance.
