Am I a candidate for a facelift?
If you feel like your facial skin has its youthful qualities and has started to noticeably droop, or if you have wrinkles and lines that feel too prominent, then a facelift may be the choice for you. We recommend reaching out to our West Palm Beach offices and setting up a consultation with Dr. Murphy to explore your options.
What should I consider when choosing a plastic surgeon?
Take care to select a trustworthy, experienced, and board-certified surgeon, as this is the best way to ensure that you enjoy quality results. We invite you to meet with us and look over our gallery of before-and-after images to assist in your decision-making process.
How long does the procedure take?
Depending on the extent of the procedure and whether or not it is being combined with other procedures, most facelifts take between two and six hours to perform.
How long does the recovery period last?
You will be advised to restrict your activity and stay home from work for up to two weeks, depending on the extent of the procedure. Any strenuous activity should be avoided for up to about four weeks post-surgery.
What should I expect during the first-week post-surgery?
Bruising and swelling of the face are expected during this time, and there will be discomfort in the treatment area. You will be advised to keep your head elevated while resting to reduce swelling, and you will be prescribed pain medication to alleviate any discomfort.
How long will my results last?
The results last for varying lengths of time depending on your age, the condition of your skin, and the procedure itself. In most cases, the refreshed look lasts up to ten years or longer.
Is financing available?
Financing is available; talk to our friendly administrative team about the options that will suit your budget.
