10 Sep Nashville Plastic Surgeon Offers a Look Inside the Facelift Process
Dr. Nicholas Sieveking explains the details of the facelift procedure, covering the consultation process through the recovery period.
Nashville, TN – Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nicholas Sieveking is known as one of the top facelift surgeons in the region, offering safe, reliable and natural-looking results. At his Nashville plastic surgery practice, he addresses cosmetic facial concerns on an individualized basis, choosing the best procedure based on the unique needs of each patient. He believes that following a “cookie cutter” approach will only lead to bad results. Dr. Sieveking says his techniques are always based on achieving the optimal outcome for each individual.
According to Dr. Sieveking, any age can benefit from good skin care practices, such as avoiding the sun, using physician-recommended products and undergoing light skin peels and office-based laser procedures. While these can help slow down the aging process, he explains that cosmetic concerns go beyond the scope of non-surgical treatment. Factors such as age, genetics, smoking, and excessive weight loss all influence when the point of surgical treatment becomes necessary. In regards to his facelift patients, Dr. Sieveking has performed the surgery on patients ranging from age 38 to 85, although he says the average patient is typically around age 55.
When patients need a more thorough treatment for their cosmetic facial concerns, Dr. Sieveking considers their candidacy for the facelift procedure. Generally, if a patient is in good health and has a low risk for surgery complications, Dr. Sieveking considers them a candidate for facial cosmetic surgery. However, he finds it imperative that patients fully understand the commitment of such a procedure. To maintain the surgical results, he says patients should be dedicated to living a healthy lifestyle through good nutrition, exercise, smoking cessation, and good skin care. At Sieveking Plastic Surgery, Dr. Sieveking says he has invested in the most advanced cosmetic lasers and skin care products to help prepare his patients for surgery and maintain their unparalleled results for many years after their procedures. He adds that his three licensed Medical Aestheticians are the best in the South, and often work seven days a week to keep up with the demand at his office and ensure timely care and convenience for all of his patients.
With his comprehensive laser and skin care center, as well as his Clinic of Ageless Solutions, Dr. Sieveking is able to choose the most effective therapies for a patient’s needs. Once he determines a patient requires surgical attention to correct cosmetic concerns, Dr. Sieveking will adapt his surgical technique to address such factors as age, gender, skin quality and sun damage. As a result of his thorough consultation process and approach to Anti-Aging therapies, Dr. Sieveking says his patients can expect to see more natural-looking, youthful appearance that stands the test of time. In addition to looking great on the outside, he adds that his patients experience an inner-healing and vibrancy to complete the rejuvenation process.
Following the facelift surgery, Dr. Sieveking’s patients tend to resume their normal schedule within two to three weeks. Preparing patients mentally and physically as well as using gentle, meticulous surgical techniques helps minimize bruising, swelling, and down-time for all of Dr. Sieveking’s patients. The Nashville plastic surgeon explains that results can continue to appear over three to six months, including skin tightening, jaw line contouring and softened appearance of scars. In the end, Dr. Sieveking hopes not only to rejuvenate his patients’ cosmetic appearance, but renew their overall self-confidence.
