Facelift Surgery

We offer patients aesthetic enhancement through facelift surgery.  Using the most refined techniques and a keen artistic eye, we perform rejuvenating facelifts to help patients achieve a fresh and vibrant appearance.

Over time, the elements and gravity cause delicate facial skin to lose its youthful appearance. The skin loosens along the jaw and cheek bones, at the sides of the mouth, and below the chin, resulting in folds on the face and neck. At our practice we offer patients facelift surgery to revitalize the face in a natural way so that it appears fuller, smoother, and younger looking.

The Facelift Procedure

Performed while the patient is under either local anesthesia with a sedative or general anesthesia, a facelift procedure generally takes several hours to complete.  During the surgery, we will make incisions at or within the hairline so that scarring will be minimal; we may also make a small incision under the chin if extensive tightening or fat removal of the neck is necessary.  We then contour by direct excision or by liposuction, pull the skin tighter, and trim away any excess tissue in order to create a smoother facial appearance. We then close the incisions and wrap the face in a protective gauze dressing to aid in healing.

After Facelift Surgery

After facelift surgery, the patient may experience some pain, numbness, and swelling.  The patient should get plenty of rest, but can often resume activity gradually within two weeks.  Most patients can expect a full recovery within three to four weeks.

The facelift procedure helps provide patients with a revitalized appearance, so they can feel more confident and attractive.
