A facelift in Houston with Dr. Lyos is second to none. Using the latest surgical techniques, he is known for producing refined results that routinely endure five to ten years. After the procedure, Dr. Lyos's patients appear subtly enhanced and naturally refreshed - never artificial.
You may be ready for a facelift in The Woodlands with Dr. Lyos if you:
Depending on your age and the signs of aging you're having addressed, you will either undergo a mini or full facelift with Dr. Lyos. Here's what you need to know:
The mini facelift in Houston involves small incisions along the hairline and a relatively quick recovery period. The procedure exclusively targets sagging skin, wrinkles, and unwanted fat along the jaw, lower cheeks and neck. As such, it's ideal for younger Houston patients who want to address the earliest signs of facial aging.
For older patients who want a comprehensive transformation, there is no substitute for a traditional, full facelift. Through a lengthy incision, Dr. Lyos can address sagging cheeks, deep eye creases, prominent mouth lines, heavy jowls and more. Because this procedure is more intensive than the mini, it is typically reserved for patients in their 50s and 60s.
There are several facelift surgical techniques, but they are not all created equal. Some require a greater degree of skill and some are known for producing subpar results. Being informed will help you make smart decisions not only about your procedure – but about the surgeon you select as well.
Through tiny incisions, a microscopic camera (endoscope) and tiny surgical instruments are used to restore a youthful appearance. This approach is ideal for patients who want to address sagging muscles and fat, but don't need to remove a large amount of excess skin.
SMAS is the new gold-standard technique for facelifts. It involves tightening and lifting the underlying facial structure to enhance your contours, before trimming away excess skin. This approach is relied upon for producing organic results that last.
This technique is outdated and should be avoided. It involves creating a large incision and lifting and suturing the skin to a higher location. Because the underlying facial structure remains untouched, the results are not as natural or long-lasting when compared to alternative approaches.
Your facelift in The Woodlands and in Houston, Texas will be done under general anesthesia in the comfort and safety of our state-of-the-art Houston surgical center. You will be asleep throughout the procedure, so you won't feel any pain or discomfort as Dr. Lyos creates your incisions and elevate, firms and smooths your skin.
When you awaken from surgery, your face will be wrapped in bandages to protect the area. We will then move you to the recovery room, where you will be closely monitored by our nursing staff and anesthesiologist. Dr. Lyos will have you transferred to 1 of our overnight care suites, where you will have one on one care for your first night. Your family will be notified once you are settled in and they can join you.
While this procedure is much like turning back a clock, even the best facelift can't stop the aging process. As such, Dr. Lyos recommends preserving your results with a healthy skincare regimen moving forward. He and his staff will compose a custom treatment plan just for you, and it will likely involve a combination of at-home care and in-office, non-surgical maintenance.
