Why have a face lift?
As people age, deep creases can form between the nose and mouth, the jawline grows slack and jowly, and folds and fatty deposits appear around the face. While a facelift, or rhytidectomy, can’t stop the aging process, it can work to reverse the most visible signs by removing excess fat, tightening muscles, and re-draping the skin of your face.
To ensure the results you want, our plastic surgeons will assess your skin quality, hairline, hairstyle, and bone structure to determine the approach that is best for you. A facelift can be done alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping.
Face lift results
The volume and elevation of the cheeks will be improved. The middle and lower part of your face will have a smoother, more youthful, and natural contour. A facelift can improve the deep cheek folds, jowls, and loose, sagging skin around the neck that come with age. After surgery, patients present a fresher, more youthful face to the world.
Final results are usually evident in six to eight weeks with continued improvement for up to six months. After that, the aging process continues. Your lifestyle choices, bone structure, skin type, sun exposure, and genetics all play a role in determining the extent and longevity of your results.
What to expect during a face lift
There are several different types of facelift surgeries, each with their own unique benefits and risks. The type of facial rejuvenation surgery that is best for you depends on your objectives, the specific features of your face and skin. Our facial plastic surgeons use a wide variety of techniques to achieve your facial rejuvenation objectives.
