What happens during a facelift consultation? Is there a chance my doctor will tell me not to have the surgery?

The first part of the consultation includes a skin care analysis and introduction to our practice. Then, I meet with you and discuss your desires. I examine the areas of concern. I review my findings with you and make recommendations. Sometimes, patients think they would benefit from a facelift. While a facelift procedure is an excellent one that can produce fabulous results in the right patient, I determine with you whether it is your best option. Some patients might not be in good overall health to undergo a facelift procedure. Others may benefit from less invasive procedures, such as skin tightening with a laser device (such as Sciton’s SkinTyte) or alternate facial plastic surgical procedures, such as a submentoplasty.
