The facelift is a popular facial plastic surgery procedure that is used to correct common signs of aging for men and women. This surgery can improve various concerns such as loose or sagging skin and deep facial folds.

Who is a candidate for a facelift?

While getting older has certain benefits, for many men and women, looking older is definitely not one of them. Wrinkled skin, sagging jowls, and other signs of aging can have a negative impact on a person’s self-confidence and other aspects of his or her life. Because of this, the facelift has become known as an extremely life-changing procedure that can help men and women feel great about their looks at any age.

What is involved in a facelift surgery?

Your facelift will be customized to your needs and will include a unique combination of reshaping the underlying tissue, tightening the underlying tissue, and removing loose and excess skin. Our surgeons usually perform SMAS plication or SMASectomy, in addition to skin excision, to allow for a longstanding result. Fat grafting may also be combined with your facelift in order to rebalance the soft tissues of the face, achieving a more youthful appearance.

What results can I expect from a facelift?

Recovery time after facelift surgery will vary from patient to patient depending on the methods used for your facelift. During your consultation, we will go over the details of your facelift recovery and can answer any questions or concerns you may have. As your skin continues to heal, any bruising and swelling you are experiencing will gradually fade. Most feel comfortable returning to work after about two weeks and can wear makeup to help conceal any post-surgical signs. Once you are fully healed, you will notice a more youthful, yet naturally-looking face in the mirror.
