Orange County Facelift Expert Discusses Proper Care of Facelift Incisions
Date:5/28/2013

(PRWEB) May 28, 2013

"I feel it's essential that patients and caretakers understand what needs to be done during the recovery process," said Dr. Sadati. "Taking proper care of the incisions after the operation will ensure that there is minimal scarring on the patient's face."

In the blog post, Dr. Sadati identifies the following tips for taking care of incisions after a facelift procedure:

First and foremost, check the incision area for infection every day.

Avoid showering and shampooing hair until at least 48 hours after the operation. Patients should wait until their bandages are removed before they shower or bathe.

Wear sunscreen at all times, and keep the scars protected from the sun every day for at least a year. Patients should wear sunscreen that is SPF 30 or higher regardless of whether it is a cloudy day or a sunny day.

Incisions should be cleaned each day during the recovery process.

Patients should purchase new makeup to wear after their operation. No makeup should be placed on or near the incisions, but should instead only be used to disguise any bruising that might be present on the face for several days after the surgery.

Patients should rest with their head elevated for 48 hours after the operation. This is one of the keys to a successful recovery and ensures the best results. Elevation helps to reduce the swelling on the face as well as minimize the pressure on the incisions, allowing the surgeon's best work to shine through in the end.

Do not remove steri-strips. Steri-strips are designed to fall off on their own when they are done protecting the incision.

Cold compresses can be used to help manage pain and keep the swelling down near the incision area.

Most patients who opt to have a facelift procedure performed want natural-looking results and want the procedure itself to remain discreet. Taking care of the incisions will help minimize the appearance of scars on a person's face, as well as ensure long-term results for the patient. It's important that any patient who is undergoing this particular surgery follow any and all post-operative instructions provided to them by Dr. Sadati.

"I make it a point to create custom recovery instructions for each patient so that everyone's individual needs are addressed," said Dr. Sadati. "These tips will help any patient through the recovery process, but it's important that they also follow the individual instructions that I provide them with prior to the surgery."

Through his extensive consultation process, Dr. Sadati gets to know each patient on an individual basis. He is careful to analyze many different factors before confirming that an individual is a good candidate for the facelift procedure. For him, it's essential that all patients understand the importance of the recovery process and its impact on their long-term results.
