What order should I get things done to have the most natural looking facelift results?

Dr. Dean Kane Q & A Q. Should I get my eyes done first and then my lower face at a later time? I am very concerned about getting the most natural results possible from a facelift. Is it best to do eyes first and neck later or to have everything at once? ​ ​A. Thanks for this question! “Natural” is in the eye of the beholder. We all age naturally with variations according to our environmental exposure and personal care. Possibly, the best way to determine how to “anti-age” naturally is to review photos of yourself from the past. · ​Is the concern genetic skin and soft-tissue laxity where a facelift is required? · ​Is the concern pigmentation and need for a therapeutic skin healthcare regimen? · ​Do you or did you have acne and scar where skin reduction and skin redraping is desired? · Is it lines, folds and texture concerns which need to be addressed? · What amount of recovery time and end results are desired? ​ ​Your posted concern is whether a combination of face, neck and eyelid lift should be performed at the same time. These are 3 procedures which are complementary and do “turn back the hands of time” but need recovery to soften and appear “natural”. Without an in-person consultation, it is difficult to determine whether staged procedures or all done at once is best for you. ​ ​Newer techniques in skin elevation, redraping, multi-level lifting and a concern to individualize the many options now available are necessary to make facial plastic surgery personalized. ​ ​Certainly, the experience, skill and talent of your surgeon will help you decide following a proper examination and review of your medical history. For your best results, consult with a Board Certified, well experienced Plastic Surgeon. ​ ​I hope this has been helpful! All the best!
