Features & Benefits
Facelift surgery provides a comprehensive approach to rejuvenating the face. It targets sagging skin and tissue in the midface, lower face, and neck, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance. The procedure can tighten loose skin, smooth wrinkles, and improve facial contours.
Facelift results are long-lasting, often lasting around 7 to 10 years, although individual experiences may vary. The longevity of the results makes a facelift an effective option for those seeking significant and sustainable improvement in their facial appearance.
Many individuals experience improved self-esteem and self-confidence after a facelift. The rejuvenation of their facial features can lead to a more positive self-perception and greater comfort in social and professional interactions.
Modern facelift techniques focus on achieving natural-looking results that do not appear overly tight or “pulled.” Skilled plastic surgeons tailor the procedure to the patient’s unique facial anatomy, ensuring a harmonious and balanced outcome that complements their individual features.

A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that aims to reduce visible signs of aging in the face and neck. It involves tightening the underlying facial tissues, removing excess skin, and repositioning and lifting the skin to achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Good candidates for a facelift are individuals who have noticeable signs of facial aging, such as sagging skin, deep wrinkles, jowls, or loss of facial volume. It is important to have realistic expectations, be in good overall health, and have a thorough consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine if a facelift is the right procedure for you.
There are several types of facelift procedures, including traditional facelifts, mini facelifts, and lower facelifts. The specific technique used will depend on factors such as the extent of correction needed, the patient’s anatomy, and the surgeon’s preference. Your surgeon will recommend the most suitable option for you during the consultation.
During a facelift, incisions are typically made in the natural creases around the ears, and sometimes along the hairline or under the chin. Through these incisions, the underlying tissues are repositioned and tightened, excess skin is removed, and the incisions are closed with sutures or other techniques. The goal is to achieve a natural-looking, rejuvenated appearance.
Recovery time can vary, but generally, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort in the first week or two following the surgery. Cold compresses and keeping the head elevated can help manage these symptoms. Most individuals can return to work and light activities within a couple of weeks, but strenuous activities should be avoided for a few weeks.
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved. Potential complications of a facelift may include infection, bleeding, scarring, temporary or permanent numbness, skin irregularities, asymmetry, hair loss along the incision lines, or changes in hairline position. Choosing an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon can help minimize these risks.
The results of a facelift can last for many years, but it’s important to note that the aging process will continue. Factors such as genetics, lifestyle choices, and skincare routines can influence how long the results will be maintained. Many individuals enjoy the benefits of a facelift for 10 years or more.
Yes, a facelift can be combined with other surgical or non-surgical procedures to achieve more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Common combinations include eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), brow lift, neck lift, and fat grafting to restore facial volume.
