Face Lift Surgery
When you trust your face to a surgeon, not only should you choose a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon but, one whom has years of experience doing facelift surgeries.
Choose C. Randall Harrell M.D. as your facelift surgeon because of his experience and because he is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Dr. Harrell 25 years experience in making faces more beautiful and turning back the clock so that you still look like you but a younger well-rested version. He specializes in Natural looking facelifts. Being too pulled or odd looking is not the goal.
Good Candidates for Facelift Surgery are those who are concerned about loose skin on the lower face and neck.
If you are bothered by sagging jowls, a “turkey neck gobbler”, the hanging skin on your neck, or loss of muscle or volume in the mid-face you are probably a good candidate for a facelift/neck lift. A facelift is a surgical procedure that allows Dr. Harrell to uplift your mid-face and tighten your jowls and neck. He can also help the deep creases along the nose and extending to the corners of the mouth. Sometimes he uses fat transfer along with the facelift/neck lift to correct the loss of volume in your facial structure. Dr. Harrell will determine if you are a good candidate for these procedures.
A facelift is an individualized procedure. One size does not fit all. You should consider facial rejuvenation for yourself not to fulfill someone else’s wishes or their image of you.
Facelift Consultations are a Way to Visualize your Possible Results
When you come for a consultation here at the Fountain of Youth Institute you will meet one of our image consultants who will go over the procedure and what to expect. Then Dr. Harrell will come in to examine you and talk with you about your expectations. It is important that you be completely honest about your health, lifestyle and previous medical procedures and what you are wanting from the surgery results.
- What are you considering to have the surgery, and what do you expect from the outcome?
- Do you have any drug allergies, or medical conditions? What are your past surgeries?
- What medications are you taking currently? What about vitamins or herbal supplements? Do you smoke? How much alcohol do you have per week?
