Perhaps the most difficult part of deciding on a facelift is finding the right cosmetic surgeon. Do they have enough experience? Do they take a holistic approach? Are they board certified? These are all questions that surely pop in your head during your search for a qualified physician. If you’re interested in pursuing facelift surgery in the Tulsa area, there’s one surgeon who can meet all of your criteria and much more: Dr. Cuzalina.
A successful facelift with Dr. Cuzalina starts well before you go under the knife – it actually starts during your initial consultation. Dr. Cuzalina will carefully and thoroughly evaluate your face from the front and at every angle. He will take the time necessary to understand all of your anti-aging concerns and goals and then design a personal plan to address them.
Dr. Cuzalina takes an all-encompassing approach to each and every one of his facelift procedures. He strives to give his patients the best possible result overall instead of just addressing the common areas that the surgery usually targets. Dr. Cuzalina realizes that it’s not only about smoothing our wrinkles and lines to restore a more youthful appearance, but treating every facial concern that you may have.
A neck liftis a common companion to the facelift. In fact, that area is often the biggest complaint that many facelift patients have. The texture and tone of your skin may need some attention too. That’s where photo laser treatments or a chemical peel for damaged skin comes in to play. And even though the brow, eyelids, or nose aren’t typically part of the traditional procedure, Dr. Cuzalina will take your entire facial anatomy into account to give you the rejuvenated appearance you’re looking for.
One of the biggest concerns of a facelift procedure is scarring. Many women worry that they will have a very visible and noticeable mark on their face following surgery, but nothing could be further from the truth. Dr. Cuzalina will make every effort to conceal the incisions to ensure that nobody will be able to tell that you’ve had any work done. For the lower part of the face and the neck, Dr. Cuzalina will only need to make a small incision under the chin and the rest will be inconspicuously placed in the natural creases in and around the ears.
Dr. Cuzalina has the skills, knowledge, and experience to give you the utmost confidence in your facelift procedure. He’s double board certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery for body, breast, and facial surgery, and the Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. He also served as the President of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery in 2011 and also as the President of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery in 2013. Dr. Cuzalina has performed over 1000 facelifts in his career and has authored multiple book chapter and articles on face lifting. He has also lectured all over the world on facelift techniques and particularly on face and neck lifting for the challenging patient.
