What to expect after a facelift?

What to expect after a facelift?

If you are interested in facial rejuvenation, reading this article will help you to better understand the recovery process from Surgical Procedures.
Surprising to many, there usually isn’t a lot of discomfort after surgery. Significant pain associated with an area of swelling should be reported to your surgeon immediately. In general the swelling will progress over 2-3 days but then begin to improve.

You may feel some tightness and numbness on your face and neck. This tightness generally resolves within six weeks. The feeling of tightness is usually due to swelling. As the swelling goes down, your skin will loosen and then stabilize. Do not become alarmed that the facelift didn’t work. It is normal for the face to look less wrinkled initially after surgery due to swelling. Numbness may persist for several months and will gradually improve.

Keep your head elevated help to minimize swelling and to speed recovery. Do not underestimate the importance of head elevation. It will reduce your recovery time. Failure to do so may prolong recovery and may create disturbing facial asymmetry.

The majority of people are able to return to work after 2 weeks as bruising has usually resolved but this depends on …

How to rejuvenate the neck?

How to rejuvenate the neck?

In terms of the negative effects of the aging process, the neck is one of the regions of the body that is hardest hit with wrinkling, sagging and drooping. This can significantly mar an otherwise attractive profile, giving visual signals of aging and weight gain, even as the rest of the body remains fit and trim.
The solution to this aesthetic inconvenience is to perform a surgery known as a neck lift.

In a neck lift procedure, patients look to create a defined jaw line with high contours and toning. The neck should be easily distinguished from the jaw line, producing an elegant transition between the thorax and the face.

The sagginess and droopy skin of the neck and the mandibular ridge are primary elements of aging that come over time. Many conventional cosmetic surgeries leave patients with an over-stretched face and infra-treated neck, however our neck lift technique leaves you with lasting natural results.

A neck lift or Cervicoplasty should be approached as a surgery of the lower third of the face, in order to adequately correct excess skin, neck wrinkles, loss of the mandibular ridge, neck bands (“turkey neck”), and droopy skin under the neck or a …

Red Tag Moving Company is Back Better Than Ever!

There is a very good reason why Debra Lynn, owner of Red Tag Moving Company has been voted the best local moving company three times in Cuenca. Debra and her crew recently packed up all our belongings and moved us to our new location. Everything was packed very carefully and efficiently. The move itself was done in a very timely fashion. Debra’s crew of three very strong men and Debra herself worked together like clockwork to load and unload our furniture, appliances, tons of artwork and dozens and dozens of boxes. They set up the beds, hooked up the appliances, and placed furniture where we wanted it, sometimes moving it more than once until it was just right. They even hung our drapes and mounted our televisions on the walls!

All of this was done tirelessly without any dents or breakage, and always with a smile. So, if you have a move planned whether it is from your home or business and no matter how large or small, email Debra Lynn today at and rest assured that you are getting the best.

How to choose your plastic surgeon?

How to choose your plastic surgeon?

Whether you’re interested in Facial Rejuvenation, Body Contouring or some other Plastic Surgery procedures, there’s a plastic surgeon for that. The right surgeon will have the skills and experience to do safe, aesthetically pleasing work. On the flip side, the wrong surgeon could cause you harm.

Your selection of a plastic surgeon in Cuenca is as important as your decision to undergo cosmetic surgery. It must be done in a thorough, well-organized manner. Your results will be directly proportional to the amount of effort you are willing to expend during your search. While having a list of questions is a great first step, your interpretation of the answers is really the most important part.
Emphasis on the need for reviewing qualifications, experience, training, post-operative photography and testimonials combined with open and honest discussion with the surgeon are among the necessary steps toward selecting the best surgeon for you.
We give you the best tips for choosing a plastic surgeon below:

1. At a minimum, selection criteria you use in evaluating a plastic surgeon should include:
Graduation from a recognized school of medicine, license as a physician and surgeon in the country in which you will be having the …

Cuenca Medical Tourism

Cuenca Medical Tourism

Cuenca is considered one of the best cities to experience the golden years. One of the reasons is the excellent medical system that the city has; both in services and prices. The city has positioned itself as a benchmark for MEDICAL TOURISM, it means to people travel abroad to obtain medical treatment.
The city has been recognized in 2007 by the Pan American Health Organization as a healthy city, its first-rate hospital infrastructure with prestigious medical professionals and thermal springs with appropriate infrastructure; also Cuenca lead medical care in the region under parameters of quality, services and prices.
The costs of medical services have no comparison to the costs of medicine in the United States or Europe. For example, a doctor visit in Cuenca costs approximately $60, while a doctor visit in the United States could cost $300.
For expats who have decided to live in Cuenca, and have private health insurance, it is very important to review their plan.

It is preferable have a health insurance with a free choice of doctors and hospitals, so you can access the …
