Where Your Surgery Will Be Performed
Your operation may take place in an office-based facility, a freestanding surgical center or a hospital outpatient facility near Scottsdale. Sometimes, Dr. Beals may require that you stay overnight. Dr. Beals will make such a recommendation based on your overall medical condition and whether another cosmetic procedure was performed simultaneously with the facial surgery. For instance, if you receive a facelift and breast augmentation, it’s more likely you’ll be asked to stay overnight in the Surgical Recovery Center which is located on the campus next to the Surgerical Center.
What To Expect From Facial Surgery
Facial implants, a facelift, and other cosmetic surgery procedures on the face can enhance your appearance and bolster your self-esteem. If you are looking for improvement – not perfection – in your appearance and are realistic in your expectations, you may find that a facial implant is the right choice for you.
Plastic surgeons can bring better balance to the features of a younger patient. For instance, a teenage girl may want her nose reshaped or her chin brought forward so that these traits are better proportioned. The more mature patient may choose to have facial surgery in conjunction with another cosmetic procedure. For example, during a facelift, a patient may wish to have implants placed over the cheekbones to help restore a more youthful appearance. Implants may also be selected to fill out a face that appears “sunken” or tired.
Facial surgery can produce some remarkable changes. Problems rarely occur, but you need to be informed about such possibilities. This site will touch upon a few, but is not intended to provide a detailed or complete inventory of potential risks.
Be sure you understand the details of the proposed surgery, including the cost and what to expect during your recovery.
If the surgery will entail an incision inside your mouth, it is important that you inform our office if you smoke or if you have any dental or gum problems. Dr. Beals will advise you on these matters.
In preparing for your surgery, be sure to find out if you’ll be able to drive home afterward or will require transportation. You should also ask if you’ll need to refrain from eating or drinking the night before your surgery, and if you should stop taking any medications, including aspirin and similar drugs. You may be instructed to take oral antibiotics both before and after the procedure to help guard against infection.
Dr. Beals will provide information about these important matters during your pre-operative consultation.
You may not be able to accurately evaluate your appearance for weeks, or perhaps even months. Give yourself plenty of time to get used to your new look.
You may be surprised to find that most people won’t recognize that you’ve had facial surgery — only that you look better.
