What to Expect from a Facelift Procedure

Are you looking to rejuvenate your skin? What you need is a facelift procedure. This procedure requires the surgeon to remove extra facial skin around the jaw. People with droopy skin fall among those who qualify for this procedure. A facelift gets rid of creases by tightening the skin and targets many signs of aging at once.

A facelift tightens the underlying tissues on the face to achieve a range of aesthetic goals. Some of the reasons people get a facelift procedure include getting rid of jowls, double chin, and tightening saggy facial skin. This procedure can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. Patients typically go home on the same day.

What to Expect

The surgeon will make an incision in front of the ear during a facelift procedure. The incision extends to your hairline behind your ear into your scalp. The surgeon proceeds to lift your skin off the fat and deep facial muscles before removing extra skin.

The surgeon also tightens loose muscles found in the skin. A facelift also incorporates a neck lift if the skin around the chin is loose. This requires making an incision under the chin to tighten the deeper tissues of the neck.

Our experts conduct an in-depth assessment of a patient’s medical history to ensure a successful procedure. This helps in preventing potential complications caused by pre-existing conditions and different medications.

The affected areas appear youthful after a facelift procedure. Surgeons tighten sagging, drooping skin and reducing creases. However, a facelift doesn’t last forever. Patients will require more work done after five years.
