FAQ-Wrinkle Treatment

My friend from Kuwait City had a facelift in Chicago last year. She is now very unhappy for her unnatural looks. I am very interested in a facelift in general, however, I am afraid that I may look artificial afterwards as well?

Answer from Dr. Kremer:

We are confronted with concerns like yours on a daily basis. We can assure you that enhancing your looks - not changing - is of utmost concern to us. The perception of facial beauty is different in American surgeons and European surgeons and likewise in their patients. Dr. Michael Kremer has trained in the US for several years and from his experience puts great effort in creating natural looks as - from your long experience - requested by most patients from Europe and the Middle East. We will show you many before-after pictures during your consultation in our office to further reduce your fears.

I am worried that my looks may be changed too much by cosmetic facial surgery and that I will not be myself after surgery. Are my fears justified?

Answer from Dr. Kremer:

The goal of cosmetic facial rejuvenation is not to cause extreme alterations of one's appearance. This may be desired in the case of severe congenital facial deformities. However, age-related changes are desired to be removed by most patients and only characteristics that really annoy patients are really being changed.

Ideally, cosmetic facial rejuvenation should result in that a positive change of the patient's appearance is being recognized by the personal surrounding, however, nobody really can tell or dares to ask why this is so.

I am a 60-year-old woman with an excellent complexion (peaches and cream) and excellent facial circulation. Unfortunately I have developed some jowls and some sagging. Would a face lift negatively affect my complexion and facial circulation? It would seem that undermining the skin might harm capillaries, some of which might not reconnect.

Answer from Dr. Kremer:

Typically a facelift does not have an impact on a patient's complexion and skin quality. The capillaries that supply the facial skin lie in the dermis, which is not altered during this procedure. If you are considering a facelift and a are concerned about your skin, I would - after a thorough personal consultation and examination - suggest that you see the aesthetician on my team, who might start you on a medically supervised skin care program.
