How to Prepare for Facelift Surgery

If you’re considering facelift surgery, the best place to start is with a consultation with an experienced, board certified facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Ali Sepehr. This is your opportunity to ask questions, discuss your cosmetic concerns, and find out if you’re an ideal candidate for this procedure. The next step will be setting up a surgical appointment, and this is also when Dr. Sepehr will give you a list of pre-operative instructions. These typically include when to stop eating or drinking (midnight the day of your surgery), which types of medicines to stop taking, and other details unique to your treatment plan. If you smoke, it’s important to stop at least two weeks in advance of your operation. If you need help quitting, Dr. Sepehr can recommend some smoking cessation aids.

Dr. Sepehr may also request that you complete some laboratory work prior to the procedure. This is designed to ensure you are in good general health and to provide the best care possible. At The Orange County Center for Facial Plastic Surgery, we want to make sure you feel completely confident about your decision.
