Your Consultation Appointment

Before your first visit, you will be asked to complete an intake form to document your personal and medical history, prior surgeries, medications, and allergies.

At your visit we will review your goals and concerns. We will also want to learn more specifically about any prior facial procedures you have had performed. We will examine your overall face and neck from various angles. We use a special mirror to show you how you appear to others. We will also take photographs that will be used to plan your surgery and track your progress after. You will have a chance to review these images and discuss the plan with Dr. Pourtaheri prior to surgery.

Facial Rejuvenation Recovery

What your recovery looks like depends on which procedures you are having performed. If you are combining procedures, recovery time may increase. After thoroughly reviewing your goals and your facial anatomy, Dr. Pourtaheri can tell you more about what to expect after surgery.

Antibiotics are generally given on the day of surgery but not after surgery. We also prescribe pain medications to limit discomfort. Blood pressure medications may be added to minimize problems after surgery if your blood pressure ran high during the procedure or in recovery. You will receive after-care instructions before and after your surgery and have plenty of time to ask questions.

After surgery, you may have bruising, swelling, and soreness that will gradually go away. It is best to sleep with your head elevated on 2 or more pillows and not strain yourself for 2 weeks to reduce swelling. We may ask that you apply cold compresses to the area for 24 hours to further reduce swelling and bruising. Regular walking is encouraged to prevent blood clots, starting the morning after surgery.

We generally like to check on you in person the day after surgery. We will otherwise call and plan to see you in 8 to 10 days after surgery. We will schedule additional visits to check on your healing progress, which can be done virtually if you live out of town.

Healing takes time. Most patients feel comfortable socializing after 2 weeks. The bulk of the swelling resolves within a few weeks. Your face will continue to make gradual changes and your final results may take several months to be fully evident.

When you are ready to take the next step, please contact us online using our confidential form or call / text 415-523-5235 to schedule a consultation.
