Facelift Surgery

Constant exposure to sunlight, smoking, stress and the natural aging process all effect your facial appearance. If you see deep creases setting in around your eyes, nose and mouth, and maybe your jaw line is beginning to sag, you may be considering a facelift. These changes can make you look older than you feel, but with a face lift, you can restore a fresh look. Dr. Bradley Ashpole uses his experience to achieve a natural looking result, never that “she’s had surgery” look.

Chicago, Itasca & Naperville Candidates

Facelifts are common among both men and women, and are most often performed on those in their forties to sixties. The best facelift candidates are physically healthy, do not smoke, have fairly good elasticity in their skin, and possess specific, realistic goals. Facelift surgery needs to be customized to each individual’s needs and it is advisable that you discuss your expectations in detail with Dr. Ashpole. Frequently, people include other procedures like a brow lift or an eyelid surgery while getting a facelift done.

The time required to perform your surgery may vary depending on the set of procedures which are planned. Each person’s face and requirements differ. Most cosmetic surgeons will decide the best incision placement to remove the fat and tighten your skin and soft tissues. Depending on the degree of change desired, a traditional facelift, limited incision facelift, or a neck lift may be required. A traditional facelift redistributes fat, repositions underlying tissue, lifts deep layers of the face and muscles and reshapes overlaying skin. A limited incision lift is an alternative to a traditional facelift, allowing for the tightening of the jowls, cheeks, and neck using less extensive incisions. A neck lift addresses loose neck skin and fat under the chin, but does not correct issues higher up in the face. Generally, these incisions are placed within the scalp and behind the ears to reduce their visibility after the face lift. Dr. Ashpole might make an incision under your chin if you need to remove the fat from your neck area. The skin and soft tissues will be separated in order to be repositioned to improve the overall shape of your face. Once separated, the muscles will be tightened to give a firm look. Excess skin will be removed. Lastly, the skin will be pulled back and stitched in the proper position.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Who is at risk for developing varicose veins?

    Women naturally have a higher chance of developing varicose veins, especially women who are pregnant. However, it is important to keep in mind that roughly 42 percent of men experience varicose veins by the time they turn 60. Family history is one of the biggest factors that determine whether or not you will develop varicose veins.

    If you don’t get your varicose veins removed, they may result in skin sores, skin ulcers, blood clots or even deep vein thrombosis (DVT). It is best to get your veins treated as soon as possible to reduce your risk of developing complications down the road.

    There is a misconception that when Botox is administered, it results in a frozen or numb facial appearance. In simpler terms, patients may feel like they will no longer be able to make facial expressions. This is why it is important to find a qualified surgeon with years of experience administering Botox, as they will be able to judge how much Botox you need and help judge the size of your muscles.

    Botox is extremely effective in temporarily reducing wrinkles! Whether you have forehead lines that you don’t like or you want to get rid of frown lines or crow’s feet, the highly purified toxins in Botox can help erase them!

    The side effects of Botox in Itasca are typically mild and short-lived. You can expect slight bruising, and, in one to five percent of cases, Botox may cause mild droopiness of the eyelid or the eyebrow. This usually goes away within two weeks.

    Though it’s often the best option if your condition has progressed, you can also take measures to avoid varicose and spider veins besides vein treatment. To reduce your chances of developing unsightly veins, it’s important to exercise, avoid standing or sitting for long periods of time, maintain a healthy weight, and/or use compression stockings.
