Facial Surgery for Men

Cosmetic facial surgery can greatly enhance your appearance and reverse the signs of aging caused by gravity, sun exposure, and heredity. Dr. Cynthia Mizgala offers expertise in the newest cosmetic facial surgery techniques. Her aesthetic eye and sense of balance help to guide her hands towards a beautiful, natural result without that ‘overdone look ’ — just a more rested, more youthful, more handsome you.

Many facial rejuvenation options are available to smooth the skin, tighten loose skin, and remove excess skin from the face and neck. While plastic surgery provides the most dramatic, long lasting results, some patients choose to go with a non-surgical option instead.

How To Prepare For Facial Surgery.

The goal of Cynthia Mizgala MD and her entire team is to make your surgical experience as easy, safe, and comfortable for you as possible.

If you are a smoker, you will be asked to stop smoking well in advance of the surgery. Certain medications that increase the risk of bleeding such as aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, and some vitamins/homeopathic regimens should be discontinued prior to surgery. If your hair is short, you may want it to grow out enough to cover your incisions while they heal. Any chemical processing of your hair should be performed prior to surgery since you cannot have any of these procedures for a month of more after surgery.

If your facelift will be performed on an outpatient basis, be sure to arrange for someone to drive you home and stay with you for at least the first night following surgery.

What To Expect During Facial Surgery.

Dr. Mizgala will perform your cosmetic facial surgery at a licensed surgical facility. Medications are administered for your comfort during the procedure. For your safety during and after the operation, various monitors are used to check your heart, blood pressure, pulse and the amount of oxygen circulating in your blood.

When surgery is completed, you will be taken into a recovery area. A bandage may be wrapped around your face. Sometimes small tubes will be inserted beneath the skin to drain away fluid that might otherwise accumulate. There is surprisingly very little discomfort experienced after facelift surgery. However, any discomfort you may experience will be controlled with pain medication as needed.

Facial Surgery Recovery

Elevation of the head is extremely helpful in reducing the initial post-operative swelling. Dr. Mizgala may also advise you to use ice packs intermittently. You should avoid aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications for the first few days after your surgery. Smoking and exposure to second-hand smoke should be avoided to prevent delays in the healing process.

Once the dressings and drains are removed, puffiness and discoloration may be more pronounced in some portions of the face than others. Do not be alarmed by any unevenness or temporary asymmetry – this is normal. Most swelling is usually noted in the first 24 to 48 hours, and most bruising resolves within 2 weeks. Concealing makeup is usually permitted after the first week. You may experience numbness to the face post-operatively, which usually resolves within several months. Some patients find that mild swelling persists for many weeks. Straining, bending, and lifting should be avoided during the early post-operative period as these activities may predispose you to bleeding.

Dr. Mizgala will give you specific instructions that may include caring for the dressings and incisions, directions for your analgesics and other medications, specific concerns to look for, and when to follow up in the office to monitor your healing process. It may take several months for the swelling to fully resolve, and up to 6 months for the incision scars to fully fade. Avoidance of factors that could reduce the benefits of the surgery, such as excessive unprotected sun exposure and cigarette use is vital.
