Bone graft surgery becomes necessary when a person lacks enough bone mass to hold a dental implant in place. So, why do some patients have insufficient bone tissue?

What You Can Expect from a Facelift in Lee's Summit, MO
We can use this procedure to lift and tighten your skin so that you appear years younger than you do today. It is natural for skin to lose its elasticity and begin to sag or wrinkle. Our facelift procedure can reverse these common signs of aging so that you can look and feel your very best. We offer this solution in addition to other minimally-invasive options if you would like to explore those first.
After your surgery, you will need to be careful and take care of your skin. We will start by placing a dressing on your face that is removed the next day. You will then need to wear a neck and face support strap for up to two weeks. Some patients even wear this for an additional two weeks at night. Doing so is incredibly important and absolutely worth it for ensuring that you see the best results. Simultaneously the sutures you receive will also dissolve within two weeks. While you are recovering you will see some bruising and swelling and you will need to be very careful with any activities that you attempt. Remember that taking care of yourself is the best way to ensure that you see the results you are looking for.
Once the bruising and swelling have gone down, you will begin to see how tight your skin appears and how much younger you look. The results are truly remarkable.
