Meet Dr. Smith
Board Certified Plastic SurgeonRead Bio
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Smith has extensive experience performing facelifts. He routinely advises patients to take the following steps in order to maximize the longevity of results.
Optimizing your facelift results long-term is mostly about lifestyle. You probably eat healthy, exercise, have a skincare regimen, and take additional steps already to look and feel your best.
After undergoing a facelift, this kind of self-care is still important. Additional steps you should take to enhance the longevity of your results include:
Of course, you are not alone in maintaining your facelift results. Dr. Smith is pleased to offer a multitude of non-surgical options to rejuvenate your skin.
One of the worst things you can do for your skin at any age is smoke. Smoking reduces the flow of blood and oxygen. It also reduces skin elasticity, making it more likely for wrinkles to form. Immediately following your facelift, tobacco use negatively impacts the healing process, making it take longer to see the final results and increasing the risk of complications.
So, whether you're considering a facelift or you're taking every step to maintain your facelift results, don't smoke!
It is also very important not to pursue additional cosmetic treatments without qualified input. Working with a board-certified plastic surgeon can help you avoid procedures that may impact the long-term results of your facelift.
Dr. Smith understands that you want to keep your skin looking as youthful as possible. Following your facelift, he encourages you to take the proper steps to ensure an everlasting radiance.
