The fact is that even the most thorough care of the face-including the use of moisturizers and avoiding excess sunlight-is no match against Father Time. Fortunately, there are a variety of common and effective procedures that-carried out in a timely way-can help maintain a healthy and youthful appearance. Some people have taken an unfairly dim view of facelifts in light of some extreme, high profile examples, but the reality is that there are thousands of people who undergo safe, subtle facelift procedures (known as mini facelifts) every year-and enjoy excellent results that will last for a long time.
Facelift surgery compare prices, reviews
Specialty clinics are occasionally able to offer discounts and coupons for facelift procedures. It's important to note that a good deal of labor, equipment and materials are used to perform a facelift-so there are real limits to what kind of discount you can expect. Generally speaking, facelifts are outpatient procedures-which helps reduce overall expense-but pre-surgery appointments and after procedure care will also need to be budgeted for. When you've decided its time for a facelift, you may not have the resources to pay out of pocket for the procedure. Many clinics will allow you to pay in installments. Compare the interest rates of various installment plans to better calculate your total cost.
It should go without saying that your cost-cutting efforts should not result in a lower quality of treatment. Remember that any medical procedure carries risks, and that a mistake could be highly visible or necessitate additional, corrective procedures. While you're comparing prices, also be sure to compare facelift reviews. Established facilities should have plenty of unbiased feedback available at consumer review sites. Check to see that your surgeon is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons or a similar professional organization.
However, facelift comparisons-especially between surgical and nonsurgical procedures-should be made with an understanding of the difference in price, risk, and desired results. Bear in mind that other health factors can influence what types of procedures are suitable. All patients should have a clear idea of what they can expect from their facelift: those looking to improve the texture, as well as shape of the face should investigate using other procedures, such as a chemical peel, in combination with a facelift.
