A facelift can take years off your appearance. This is a relatively simple procedure that is minimally-invasive and doesn’t require a hospital stay. A traditional facelift involves skin lifting and repositioning. The skin is pulled upwards, which results in smoother skin with less visible wrinkling.
Most individuals who choose this procedure do so because they suffer from the appearance of non-set wrinkles near the jawline, sagging skin beneath the jawline and skin folds on the cheeks. These wrinkles are caused by excess fat that accumulates beneath the skin as well as by a loss of moisture and a reduction of collagen produced in the lower skin layers. We recommend a consultation for you to learn more about how a facelift can correct the visual signs of aging on your face.
What is a Facelift?
A traditional facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is performed to correct sagging in the center of the face, creases below the eyelids, jowl prominence and loose skin that forms a double chin. It is an outpatient procedure that requires anesthesia. In addition to pulling the skin upwards, excess fat and tissue can also be removed.
A traditional facelift generally takes about two hours to complete, but this will depend on your unique situation. After consulting with you, we can schedule the procedure according to your busy schedule.
You will need to follow a post-treatment regimen after the surgery. This will all be discussed with you in detail prior to the facelift. In most cases, a traditional facelift requires only about a week or two of partial downtime.
What a Facelift Will Do for You
A facelift is not a permanent solution to the problem of sagging skin, but the results are long-lasting. In some cases, our patients report positive results lasting for up to four years. The facial skin is smoother, the non-set wrinkles are barely noticeable and the overall skin tone is better because the smoother skin means less shadowing.
