Dr. David Ward Bio
What is a Facelift (Rhytidectomy)?
If you have jowls, deep facial creases or wrinkles in the face and neck this procedure may be of interest to you. This procedure improves your appearance by enhancing your chin and neck contours. A face that has a tired look will appear more youthful and rested after a facelift.
What is Involved?
•The procedure is done as a day surgery in our Surgery Centre. If combined with another procedure such as a browlift the patient may stay overnight in the Surgery Centre or have a nurse care for them in the comfort of their home.
•We also have bed and breakfast owners with nursing experience that cater to our patients by picking them up at our Surgery Centre and caring for them as needed.
•The incision is hidden in the contour of the ear, then extends around the earlobe and back into the hairline. Following surgery the incisions can be easily concealed by your hair or with makeup.
What is the Healing Time?
•Discomfort is light and easily handled with oral medication.
•The patient goes home with a head dressing which comes off the next day.
•Most often there is a small drain which is removed in 12 to 24 hours.
•Sutures are removed in 4 to 7 days.
•Bruising and swelling may last 10-14 days, there may be some slight residual swelling for a few weeks.
•The final result is evident in 4 to 6 weeks with continual improvement for several months.
•Most people are back to normal activities in 3 weeks.
David K. Ward, MD
Dr. David Ward is one of the most highly regarded Vancouver plastic surgeons who specialize in helping male liposuction patients achieve their desired physique with liposuction. To learn more about this procedure, please read the information below and visit the men’s liposuction gallery to review before and after pictures of male Vancouver liposuction patients.
Men’s liposuction helps patients with undesirable pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Dr. Ward uses the ultrasonic technique which allows for safer removal of larger amounts of fat than with standard liposuction. The ultrasound helps to liquefy fat leading to reduced movement of the wand while it is underneath the skin. This typically leads to less bruising and swelling while providing a reduced recovery time.
Dr. Ward can use this technique to remove unwanted fat from a variety of areas, including the upper arms, buttocks, upper arms, inner knees, torso region and underneath the chin.
