A face lift tightens the loose and sagging skin that develops due to age, genetics, sun exposure, or a natural predisposition. For patients in Kona desiring firmer and tighter skin on their face, Dr. Hiranaka offers a Face Lift treatment option. It effectively tightens loose skin leaving behind a smoother, firmer, and younger look.
Prior to Facelift Surgery
Before the surgery, Dr. Hiranaka will consult with you to talk in detail about any issues or concerns you may have. We also evaluate your medical history to take a look at your overall condition. We will discuss what results to look for after the surgery and any postoperative care that may be needed.
Prior to the procedure, you will be given preoperative directives which require refraining from the use of Aspirin and other medications to minimize the potential for excessive bleeding. In addition, antibiotics will be prescribed to prevent any potential infections.
Before your facelift surgery, you will be placed under IV sedation or general anesthesia. All available options will be discussed in detail and medication will be provided to assist in the relaxation process. The facelift is performed on-site at our state-of-the-art surgical center in Kona. During the surgery, the doctor will make small incisions in order to separate the underlying tissue from the loose skin. After the connective tissues and muscles have been tightened, the excess skin is removed.
