Facelifts

Facelift Surgeons You Can Trust

Known as rhytidectomy, facelift surgery involves removing major wrinkles and sagging skin, leading to a more youthful appearance. Between aging, the sun, genetics, and more, you may have noticed dramatic changes in your look. Your skin may look more saggy than it used to, including your neck and chin area. A facelift is just the thing to take five or 10 years off of your appearance! 

Facelifts are not simple procedures. Because of the dramatic results, a week to 10 days of recovery are necessary. We aim to create a natural appearance that is suited to your desires, and we’ll take before and after pictures so you can really see the difference. Facelifts are often performed in conjunction with eyelid lifts, forehead lifts, chin augmentation, and more to create an overall rejuvenation of the face.

What to Expect

General anesthesia is normally used at an outpatient center or hospital. Small incisions are made inside the hairline along the temple, the front of the ear, and around the earlobe and behind the ear, ending at the scalp. We remove excess skin and correct sagging muscles and sometimes remove fat deposits. Surgical drains may be placed to allow drainage of the site, but will be removed within 24 - 48 hours. Recovery time is usually 10 to 14 days, depending on the procedures performed.

Complications are rare but may include bleeding, infection, loss of skin behind the ears, facial nerve injury, discoloration of the skin, numbness, asymmetry, and scarring. The area may be numb for a little while and you might notice some discoloration. As your body heals, you’ll notice these side effects less and less.

Proven Results

If you’ve grown unsatisfied with the sagging appearance of your face, you’re not alone. The current look of your features may be caused by a variety of factors, including heredity, gravity, environmental conditions, and stress.

With our assistance, you will be able to revitalize your appearance in no time at all. A facelift will improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck, such as:

• Sagging in the middle of your face
• Deep lines below your eyes
• Significant creases along your nose that reach to the corners of the mouth
• Facial fat that has started to droop or has disappeared completely
• A loss of toned skin in the lower face – This creates jowls
• Loose skin and excess fat under the chin that leads to the creation of a double chin
