Did I need both mid Facelift and Fat transfer to face or just Fat transfer?

Hi, I had to fold parallel to my nose starting from mid face area , my surgeon preformed mid face lift plus face fat transfer , after the surgery and the deep incision next to my ear , i felt i might need only fat transfer to face rather face lift ! i am not sure if I am right or the surgeon right. Thanks

What to Expect After Your Facial Procedures

The healing process in general can take up to one month for the majority of swelling to subside, incisions to close, sutures to come out, and for bruising to completely go away.
#Recovery time from a #facelift varies from person to person, but patients can generally expect to be presentable within three weeks from surgery. Patients should expect swelling, bruising, and discoloration of the skin during this phase of recovery (swelling normally goes down after 48 hours; most bruising will go away within two weeks). Additionally, the #swelling will move downward in the first week and the neck will feel even tighter. Do not be alarmed: the sensation will decrease during the first month. The marks from a facelift can easily hidden with “camouflage” make-up which you can learn how to apply.
The scars from a facelift mature within six to twelve months from the surgery date. It is during this time that the rejuvenating effects of the facelift will become apparent and the real result will be seen. If you have certain concerns about the procedures and #healing process, it is recommended to call your board-certified surgeon or their medical staff and discuss those #concerns.

Do you need a facelift?

If you feel that your face does not reflect how young you feel on the inside, a facelift may be the solution to help you look and feel younger. During your consultation, your doctor will evaluate your skin texture and elasticity, as well as your underlying skin structure and your facial bone structure. Based on this evaluation, he/she will create a custom surgical plan, detailing specific techniques and recommendations to meet your goals. Your doctor should make sure you have a full understanding of what results to expect.Always insist on a board certified surgeon!

Facelift results

Without photos of what you looked like before and after, it is impossible to comment. However, a facelift and fat grafting are often performed together.

Did I have the right operation?

Thank you for asking about your mid-face lift.

  • Without before/after photos, one can't tell you if you made the right decision.
  • However fat and fillers are often used to fill in the cheek folds.
  • But they tend to appear because upper facial tissues loosen -
  • One treatment for this is a mid-face lift.

Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes  - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
