Ask Dr. K: How Do I Avoid The Tell-Tale Signs of a Facelift

I always stress that the most important part of cosmetic surgery, is choosing your doctor. If you don’t perform thorough research ask the right questions during a consultation, you may end up with something you didn’t ask for. Surgery scars are one of the most important aspects to getting something done, especially when that surgery is on your face. I spend most of my days in Beverly Hills and after traveling internationally, I see far too many unfortunate cases of women and men who have had facelift, but are left with distracting and obvious scarring. Sometimes these scars are seen around the ear, or are seen in the form of a raised hairline. No matter what the obvious scar may be, it is very unfortunate and speaks not of the person, but of the surgeon who performed the surgery. But unfortunately, it is the innocent patient who has to live with it.
When researching a doctor for a facelift, ask about their training and board certification and whether they have specialized training in performing facelifts. Also, be sure to closely inspect their work and ask to see images of facelifts they have performed in the past. Ask detailed questions about their procedure technique and how they avoid scarring.
If you would like to know more about this subject or request a consultation, please contact Lift MD Aesthetics®

Ask Dr. K: How Do I Avoid Scarring After Surgery?

My patients are typically very concerned about the amount of scarring that may occur after a procedure, if they have never had one done with me before. As a double-board certified surgeon and with my expertise and post-surgical care regimens combined, we can drastically minimize scarring.

Pre Surgery Planning:

– I design incisions so that the incision mark is less conspicuous.–

– I make sure the incision is closed in multiple layers with the tension being placed on the deeper, stronger layers creating less tension on the skin itself allowing the skin to heal optimally.

– 

Once the scars are healed, various methods can be used to diminish their appearance. Here are some suggestions I have for scar prevention, management and maintenance:

– Use steri-strip tape on the scar for the first weeks during initial healing.

– After a couple weeks of healing, and your stitches are out, use lift md silicone patches to smoothen, lighten and reduce the scar tissue. The most common and seemingly most effective anti- scarring method is Self-Adhesive Silicon Sheeting . These are small silicone- covered patches that adhere to the skin over and around the scar site. –

– The use of Pre/ Post Surgery Vitamins can play a critical role in preparing your body for surgery, minimize swelling & bruising, and for optimal healing.

– Laser treatments can be used to resurface the area, which decreases and softens scar tissue.

– The use of special creams, lotions or ointments that contain onion extract (Mederma), Retin-A, topical vitamins E and C, Emu Oil and Glycolic Acids as their active ingredients. Although many people use these products, their effectiveness is still unproven.

-If there is still prominent scaring after all these steps, we can inject it with Kenalog.

Rarely, people with prominent keloid scars may decide to undergo radiation therapy. There are no side effects to this and address only cosmetic issues.

– The use of medical tattooing, needles to inject pigment to camouflage and can help reduce the appearance of your scar.

– A viable option is scar revision surgery if prominent scars persist despite conservative topical treatments. This option should be discussed with your surgeon.

What I  to look for before surgery to avoid scarring:

–  Who is more susceptible to scars (darker skin tends to keloid and certain ethnicities may scar more easily) and educate the patient.

– Schedule regular follow ups after surgery to be ready to intervene in case the scarring becomes prominent.

If I have not answered your question, please feel free to let me know, I am here to help.
