So a facelift is a procedure to address the aging face. The aging face is a face where skin laxity starts to creep in as patients get older. Facelift addresses the cheek and part of the area, and when you combine it with the neck lift, then you're addressing both the cheek and the neck area. And the procedure is to put everything back to where it was when patients were younger. From a standpoint of new techniques, we've realized to incorporate things with the facelift. So it's not just about pulling the skin tight and taut where the patients look like they're in a wind tunnel. It's about pulling the skin and the underlying facial musculature and neck musculature into a better position, into a more youthful position, and then volumizing the central part of the face with the patient's own fat. I would say this not just with a facelift surgeon but with any type of surgeon, we want to make sure that the surgeon has done numerous amounts of that procedure. In the case of a facelift, if he's not doing anywhere from 5 to 10 facelifts a month, then I would be hesitant because you only get better with any procedure the more you do. On average, if you're doing a face and neck lift, and maybe a brow lift, and your upper and lower eyelid, and then volumizing the face, that could be a six to eight-hour surgery. From a recovery standpoint, it's a pretty good recovery. Patients don't have a lot of discomfort. But they will notice swelling for the first, you know, anywhere from three to seven days, maybe a small amount of bruising. So usually about a week they start looking pretty good, and then at two weeks, they're, like, really liking the way they look. So I would say anywhere from 7 to 14 days.
