As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and the stresses of daily life can be seen in their faces. Deep creases form between the nose and mouth; the jawline grows slack and jowly; folds and fat deposits appear around the neck. Dr. Guy Cappuccino can effectively address these issues with a facelift in Maryland.
When a facelift is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon like Dr. Cappuccino, complications are infrequent and usually minor. Still, individuals vary greatly in their anatomy, their physical reactions, and their healing abilities, and the outcome is never completely predictable.
Complications that can occur include hematoma (a collection of blood under the skin that must be removed by Dr. Cappuccino), injury to the nerves that control facial muscles (usually temporary), infection, and reactions to the anesthesia.
Poor healing of the skin is most likely to affect smokers. Before your procedure, Dr. Cappccunio will give you specific instructions to ensure that your surgery goes well and that your healing process is effortless.
