Who is a candidate for Facial Makeover Surgery?
Different faces age differently, but some similarities are common to all aging faces. With aging, the fullness of youthful cheeks fades and the deflated soft tissues of the mid-face sag. The ligaments of the face limit the descent of the soft tissues, leading to heavy jowls and deep nasolabial folds. Fat accumulates underneath the chin and in the jowls, and the muscles of the neck tend to sag. The skin also continues to age and sag with wrinkles, age spots, and broken blood vessels. Also when we age we start loosing our necessary fat in the cheeks and around eyes giving a skull face. Most women become candidates for a facial makeover sometime after forty-five and men about ten years later. The decision to operate depends not only on the severity of the problem that affect every patient, so surgery can go from various surgical procedure to include also non surgical or orthognatic surgery if requieres.
What should I expect from my consultation?
During your consultation, you will learn about the surgery, its limitations and risks, and discuss your needs and concerns. This will help Dr. Nabil Fakih understand your expectations and determine whether they realistically can be achieved. Dr. Nabil Fakih will carefully examine your face to assess the shape and asymmetries to determine what type of procedure would best maximize your result.
After your consultation we will take photographs for your medical record and we will discuss the surgery fees and scheduling dates. Prices can be discussed during your consultation. It is cost-effective to combine operations, generally a second procedure will cost 60% of the normal price, and a third operation will be 50% of the normal price. These savings reflect one hospital stay and a reduced overall time in the operating theatre. As with any procedure with Dr. Nabil Fakih, all follow-up and nursing relating to your surgery will be included in the price. You should come to the consultation prepared to discuss your medical history. You should provide any relevant information from your health doctors. Also provide information about any medical conditions, drug allergies, medical treatments you have received, previous surgeries and medications that you currently take. It is important for you to provide complete information. Our philosophy is simple. We want you to be fully informed, and we want you to understand all your options and have one accurate price quoted once.
Why choose to have Facial Makeover Surgery?
Not only is having multiple procedures at the same time more cost effective, it also has the advantages of a single recovery time avoiding the need for a second anesthesia. If you are considering having multiple procedures Dr. Nabil Fakih can advise during your consultation the best course of action to suit your needs. For the majority of patients this is both safe and practical. The advantage of choosing simultaneous procedures is to achieve a completely new and younger look from one operation while recovering from multiple operations at the same time.
