  • 1. What You Should Do Prior to a Facelift Facelifts are one of the most common plastic surgery procedures in the country. That being said, there are some things that need to be done before the procedure is performed in order for it to go as smoothly as possible. Your Utah plastic surgeon will then go over all aspects of preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative care. Any Utah plastic surgery procedure can come with its share of complications, depending on the patient. It’s up to your Utah plastic surgeon to keep you informed. It doesn’t matte r if you’re having a facelift or breast augmentation in Utah. They need to be there to answer any of your questions and ease your worries should you have them. Paying Attention to Medications Every medication takes a certain amount of time before it’s out of your system. They can also make it so your face swells up or bleeds too much during your Utah plastic surgery procedure. Your Utah plastic surgeon will have different recommendations for how you should proceed. You need to follow their advice, even if it means you have to deal with some discomfort in certain areas. If you find yourself wondering if going off a certain medication will risk your life, odds are you’re not a suitable candidate for Utah plastic surgery. You have to be as healthy as possible in order for your surgery to go as planned. Answer any questions your Utah plastic surgeon has about your current health honestly. There are some things they won’t be able to figure out until it’s too late. Lowering Your Weight Your current weight can play a part in how the skin on your face responds to surgery. Do not attempt to lose weight in an unhealthy way. Again, you have to be healthy when you head into the operating room. Dropping pounds takes pressure off of the facial skin flaps and makes the skin looser. Your Utah plastic surgeon will help you in finding what weight you should reach ahead of surgery. Gradual weight loss might be your answer to what’s going on with your face. Losing too much weight has the tendency to making the skin around the face droopy, thus necessitating a visit to your Utah plastic surgeon. It all depends on the patient, their age, and the amount of weight they lost during a certain timeframe. Eating Right, Cutting Out Salt If you don’t have a healthy diet at this moment, you should make it a part of your life regardless of whether you’re getting work done. A poor diet leads to weight gain, which makes it more difficult for your Utah plastic surgeon to perform your facelift.
  • 2. In the weeks prior to your surgery, you need to say goodbye to salt forever. It has the tendency to increase the swelling in your face at such a rapid pace. Since the tissue at the surgical site is more prone to swelling, you don’t want your face to swell up any more than it should. Photo Credit: http://cdn.sheknows.com/, http://s4.hubimg.com/
