Face Lift

If you have made the decision to undergo facelift surgery in Miami, you undoubtedly want to ensure the longevity of your results. While your bone structure, facial structure, and skin tone play an important role in the outcome of your surgery, many factors are also within your control, including your diet, weight, skin health and stress level. The following tips can help you sustain your facelift surgery results, long-term.

Maintain A Healthy Lifestyle

In addition to its innumerable other health benefits, maintaining a healthy lifestyle will also help to extend the longevity of your facial rejuvenation surgery. A diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, nuts, fish, and healthy fats and low in sugar or refined carbohydrates will aid in your recovery post-operatively while also prolonging your results. Similarly, regular exercise also increases the likelihood that the outcome of your surgery will be sustained. For many patients, this can be a great motivator to stay active and eat well following their facelift surgery.

Maintain A Healthy Weight

Maintaining a consistent, healthy weight following your procedure can also contribute to the preservation of your results. Significant weight fluctuations may cause the facial skin to loosen, mitigating the effects of your facelift. Thus, individuals who are planning to lose weight should do so before undergoing this procedure, but not using a crash diet, as it is crucial to maintain stable weight post-operatively.

Skin Quality

While it may seem as if your skin quality is not within your control, in reality, factors such as sun exposure, stress, poor nutrition, and inactivity, influence the condition of your skin. Patients with hydrated, healthy skin heal faster and are more likely to experience the long-term benefits of their surgical results than individuals with sun damaged skin.

As a result, it is advisable to begin taking steps to improve the quality of your skin before your facelift, such as following a healthy lifestyle, and whenever enjoying Miami’s beautiful, sunny weather- wearing sunscreen. A medical grade skin care routine should also be adhered to post-operatively to maintain the results; such as Retin-A nightly, weekly glycolic acid peels at home and regular consistent use of a good quality sunscreen.

Stress Level

Although it is impossible to eliminate all of the stressors from our lives, you can take steps to reduce your stress level before your facelift surgery, as significant stress can negatively impact your recovery and therefore, the outcome of your procedure. Regular exercise and activities such as yoga and meditation can help to alleviate stress, while also improving your overall health. However, in the event that you are going through a particularly stressful time, it is advisable to delay your surgery until your stress levels can be managed.
