While 2020 has been challenging, many of us have taken the opportunity to reassess and refresh, focusing on health and community.
With borders closed and international plus most local travel off the menu, less socialising in groups or working in offices, … some people have taken the opportunity to have a facelift.
“It has been a very busy second half of the year for facial plastic surgery,” says Dr Marcells.
“Facial plastic surgery is something well-considered and planned. There are several factors that have influenced 2020 as being the year that many people have gone ahead and had their desired procedure.”
Research and consultation always come first. Before going ahead with your facial plastic surgery procedure it is important to ask yourself a series of questions, and ask your surgeon any questions that help you to better understand the process.
In a consultation with Dr Marcells, you will communicate your desired outcome and discuss your unique health-related requirements. This is an aesthetic evaluation and communication process with patient comfort and safety paramount.
After the consultation, there is time to consider and assess your decision before going ahead and booking in.
The areas that people tend to need to align include:
- Scheduling in the procedure date
- Ensuring there is downtime for recovery/healing
Scheduling your procedure date and ensuring there is the necessary time afterwards for a comfortable recovery usually involves factoring in competing priorities.
Key social events, work, holidays, finances and family commitments are all important considerations.
“With travel and socialising restricted during 2020, some people chose to invest their time and money into going ahead with their facelift.”
If you’ve been following Dr Marcells and his work for a while, you will know that he is one of the few facial plastic surgeons skilled in performing the deep plane face and neck lift.
“Those in the know understand that deep plane face and neck lifts take the tension off the skin so there is no “pulled” look. Deep plane face and neck lifts look natural because the patient’s own ligaments are retensioned and repositioned. Deep plane is ideal for primary or revision, and in older or younger patients.”
