Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.

Evaluating Your Face

Dr. Rival will thoroughly and systematically evaluate your face in order to tailor surgery to you individually. He will assess your facial bone structure and the thickness, texture, and elasticity of the skin on your face and neck. He will also assess the severity of your facial wrinkles and folds, and examine your hairline to determine the best placement of incisions. The goal of facelift surgery, in Dr. Rival's view, is to refresh your appearance in a way that is balanced and appears natural. To help achieve that goal, Dr. Rival takes specific measurements of your face to guide the procedure.

Your examination may lead to a recommendation of other procedures to help maintain facial harmony. Those procedures might include a brow lift, eyelid surgery, or rhinoplasty (a nose job).

Setting Expectations

It's important that you can clearly envision what your results will look like so your expectations are realistic. That's why we use computer imaging. The digital imaging system is a valuable tool to help you see how different procedures can affect the overall appearance of your face. Patients who have a clear idea of what their results might look like tend to be much more satisfied after their procedures.

Once you've decided to proceed with the surgery, Dr. Rival's staff will review the fees, help you determine any medical coverage, and go over the recovery process. Many women and men have been thrilled with the improvements Dr. Rival has given them through facial plastic surgery. He welcomes the opportunity to serve you, too.
