What is A Facelift Like?
To prevent you from feeling anything, your surgeon will keep you under general anesthetic for the procedure. Your facial skin will be lifted and restored to a more youthful-looking appearance.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?
If you have loose skin, sagging jowls, deep facial lines, or other signs of aging you want to address, you may be a good candidate. If you have certain medical issues, you should not have this procedure, so discuss your entire medical history with your surgeon during consultation. If you smoke, you will have to quit before surgery.
What is Recovery Like After a Facelift?
Recovery after a facelift happens in stages. You can usually return to work within one to two weeks. Your surgeon will often clear you to return to moderate exercise after four weeks. Because swelling will take about six months to go away completely, your results will continue to improve after your procedure.
What Results Can I Expect From a Facelift?
Depending on which facelift procedure you and your surgeon have chosen, you will see a decrease in loose and sagging skin, lifting of jowls and loose neck skin, and smoothing of deep lines and wrinkles. You will also see facial volume lifted to improve the contours of the cheeks and jaw.
