There are many plastic surgery procedures available today, ranging from facelifts, rhinoplasty, chin augmentation, breast augmentation, breast lift, mommy makeover, Brazilian Butt Lift, and more. Plastic surgeons have certainly come a long way in terms of perfecting the procedures to ensure better results, less downtime, and fewer risks. Recovery is often one of the reasons people are fearful of going through with having surgery. Either they are scared, don’t have the time, or don’t want to risk anyone finding out they had something done. One of the most difficult plastic surgery procedures to “hide” is a facelift. On the other hand it is also one of the most rewarding when all said and done.
Dr. Cruise is a board-certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of Facelift Surgery in Newport Beach. While he agrees the recovery can be difficult for some, he finds it very gratifying to see his patients’ transformations. Dr. Cruise uses advanced surgical techniques to perform his facelifts so there is virtually little to no pain following surgery. He says the hardest part of the healing process for most of his Newport Beach facelift patients is swelling and limitation in facial mobility. “You can’t hide your face from yourself or others, so this can cause some emotional ups and downs while patients are healing,” says Dr. Cruise. “We live in a society where so much is driven by expecting immediate gratification. It’s just not possible with facelift surgery. It’s a process to get to the end result.”
The support staff at Cruise Plastic Surgery prides themselves on patient education and preparation. They do not sugarcoat anything when it comes to explaining what to expect from the surgical process, especially when it comes to facelift surgery. All too often doctors and staff try to down play plastic surgery recovery, however this can cause unnecessary stress, anger, and disappointment, which can be avoided by simply being transparent from the beginning. Dr. Cruise and his staff are highly regarded in the plastic surgery industry for this reason. As a result of their honesty and openness, they realize some people may ultimately decide not to have facelift surgery, and that is perfectly okay.

Hear from one of Dr. Cruise’s Newport Beach Facelift patients below:
“Thank you so much Dr. Cruise for your amazing work. I love the results!
I also want to offer a special thanks to Cristin and Jennifer who were so
understanding and supportive when my face didn’t heal as fast as I wanted
it to. I wanted it to return to normal much faster than it did. When my
face was still a bit swollen and healing after a month, I panicked and was
afraid that I would never be the same. Jennifer and Cristin reassured me
that everything was fine and I thought they were just “doing their job” in
comforting me. I was convinced that that I would never see the “real me”
again. I am SO glad that they were right and I was wrong! I am now 4
1/2 months past surgery and I absolutely love the results!! I should have
trusted them! If I had, I would have saved myself so much anxiety! Thank
you to Cristin and Jennifer for doing your best to help me through the
healing process, I can’t thank you enough!”
