Before & After
You're not alone. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 100,000 facelifts are performed each year in the United States. And it's easy to see why! A facelift can take years off your appearance, enhancing your confidence in your look. According to a study carried out by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) patients who had undergone a facelift rated themselves as looking an average of 12 years younger.
A facelift, also called a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure to improve the look of an aging face. It can correct deep creases and wrinkles, sagging skin, and jowls. Our expert surgeons perform facelift procedures in an outpatient setting in our state-of-the-art hospital. Facelifts are performed under general anesthesia.
The surgery takes about two to five hours to complete, based on the corrections needed. During a facelift, your surgeon will make incisions near the ears, within the hairline. Through the incisions, your surgeon will tighten the underlying muscles and remove excess skin to create a refreshed, elegant, youthful appearance.
You'll need to rest for the first few days after your facelift. You may have some pain and swelling during this time. Your surgeon will prescribe pain medication to help you manage any discomfort you may experience. For the next several weeks you should avoid strenuous activity, exposure to sunlight, and any bending or stooping. You'll need to sleep with your head elevated for the first week or two after surgery to keep any swelling to a minimum.

The length of your facelift recovery will vary depending upon your overall health, the type of facelift procedure that is performed, and whether you opted for any other procedures to be performed simultaneously. For most patients, two to three weeks is enough time for most of their symptoms to resolve, however, a full recovery can take up to six months. You should feel confident revealing your new look in about two weeks after your surgery.
Your candidacy will ultimately be determined during your consultation, however, if you feel that your face and neck are beginning to sag and you have some amount of skin elasticity, you may be a good candidate for a facelift.
The reign of the unnatural facelift is over. Our expert board-certified surgeons apply intricate surgical techniques that will not only tighten the skin but reposition the underlying muscle resulting in an all-natural, refreshed look.
