A Facelift is a procedure performed to reverse the effects of age, gravity, sun exposure, and daily stresses. By removing excess fat, tightening facial muscles, and readjusting the facial skin, a patient can look like a younger, rested, more beautiful version of themselves without a change in identity.
A Facelift is a highly individualized procedure that takes into account each person's unique bone structure, skin texture, skin elasticity, and underlying muscle tone prior to developing a surgical plan. Most facelifts involve a combination of re-suspending the neck and facial muscles, contouring the fatty layers, and re-draping the neck and facial skin. Most patients start inquiring about facelift procedures in their late 40's and early 50's. When correctly performed, a facelift can result in a more energetic and rejuvenated appearance. Facelifts can be performed either under local sedation or general anesthesia and recovery is usually between 7 - 10 days.
