The Keys to a Successful Facelift Recovery

2020-01-23T14:31:35+00:00Facelift, Plastic Surgery|0 Comments

A facelift is a surgical procedure conducted under the use of general anesthesia. While a facelift is usually an outpatient procedure, it is still a surgery and requires the right recovery process and plan. We recommend that each facelift candidate is in good overall health prior to surgery. This produces the lowest risks, best outcomes, and smoothest recoveries. A traditional facelift restores the signs of aging by repositioning fat, muscle, and skin between the areas below the lower eyelids and the collarbone. To ensure the best results, follow the recommended recovery process and timeline, which limits strenuous and high impact exercise for [...]

Texturized Versus Smooth Walled Implants by Dr. Vincent N. Zubowicz Texturized implants were introduced to decrease the rate of capsular contracture “hardening” of the breast. It turns out, however, that the capsular contracture rate with texturized implants is the same as that of smooth walled implants. Furthermore, the failure rate of texturized implants is greater than that of smooth implants. Therefore, I see no reason to ever use them for breast augmentation. About 30 years ago there were implants available covered in polyurethane sponge that were purported to have a lower capsular contracture rate than conventional smooth [...]
