Being Prepared for a San Diego Facelift

As with any cosmetic or non-elective surgical procedure, the most important thing is being prepared for a San Diego facelift. In a facelift, the basic procedure is as follows: The surgeon makes an incision, generally just under the hairline to avoid visible scars, and pulls (i.e., lifts) the skin up to smooth out wrinkles and sagging. The skin is then sutured back together under the hairline. Though the procedure does sound relatively simple, do not be fooled; there are risks involved, such as the possibility of infection, improper healing, or bad reactions to anesthesia. Rarely, these complications can be fatal.

With today's obsessions with youth and beauty, however, it is no surprise that people continue to have the procedure. You can greatly reduce your risk of unhappiness by picking a qualified surgeon. The ONLY way to make sure you surgeon has had specialized training in cosmetic procedures is to make sure he is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, or ABPS. You can find a list of doctors by visiting www.abplsurg.org. Additionally, be wary of doctors who make you feel uncomfortable, promise magical results, or are much less expensive than their counterparts.

Finally, realize that most insurance companies will not cover the cost of a facelift, and the cost can be several thousand dollars out-of-pocket. Unless you have been saving for just this procedure for quite a while, you might want to consider taking out a small loan, financing with the doctor's office, or getting a cash advance from your credit card company. Make sure, however, that you will be able to make at least the minimum payments without struggle; worry over finances will cause those wrinkles to pop right back up!

Though this is a good place to start on your road to a more beautiful and youthful face, there is a wealth of information out there. Take advantage of it and educate yourself as thorougly as possible before making any final decisions. In only a short matter of time, you can be looking at a fresh face in your own bathroom mirror!
