The safety and recovery time related to performing multiple facial surgeries at once has been tested and deemed appropriate in a new study in The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery. Total facial rejuvenation combines facelifts, midface implants and laser skin resurfacing, three of the most popular procedures performed, into a single session without extending recovery time or resulting in any complications for patients.
According to the publishing author, professionals formerly believed that performing all three cosmetic procedures at once would result in longer healing time and other potential side effects. However, in a review of 21 patients, women aged 58 to 71, none experienced undesired results and all experienced swift recovery time – being able to wear makeup again after just two weeks!
The focus of these procedures is to tighten the skin in the face and provide a more youthful appearance. However, a simple facelift can result in a flatter, stretched appearance in the midface due to lost volume from aging. The use of cheek implants eliminates this risk. Finally, laser skin resurfacing is used to eliminate surface signs of aging, such as sun spots and blemishes, while evening out skin tone and removing fine lines and wrinkles.
Dr. Adam Summers at Maryland Plastic Surgery & MediSpa can perform all of these procedures and more. Anyone considering a full facelift, anti-aging solution or skin rejuvenation should consider what procedures they can combine, achieving cosmetic surgery with quick recovery and maximizing their appearance in as short a time as possible. The overall impact can be life changing.
