As we get older, deep creases, sagging and drooping skin become more prominent on our facial features. In order to restore firm, youthful skin and pleasing contours to the face, Dr. Gregory Park offers a facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy. But before you have your surgery, there are some things to be mindful of in the days leading up procedure.

Dr. Park takes every possible step to decrease the potential for complications. One of these steps is to inquire about and review any medications you are taking; if one has the potential to interfere, you will be advised to discontinue use for at least two weeks prior to the rhytidectomy. In addition, pre-operative photographs will be taken to serve as markers for you to see the improvements.
