One of the most popular types of facial surgery, a facelift can help you look—and feel—years younger by reversing the damaging effects that sun exposure, aging, and stress can have on your face.
During a facelift, a surgeon tightens and smoothes wrinkles on the lower half of your face by removing excess tissue, tightening your facial muscles, and repositioning your skin.
This procedure may be ideal for you if you have drooping cheeks, creases around your mouth, a “second” chin under your jaw line, or other signs of aging which are affecting your confidence and self-esteem.
A facelift can also be effectively combined with other facial procedures, including a brow lift, eyelid surgery, a neck lift, cheek augmentation, chin surgery, and lip augmentation.
What to Expect
While a facelift is safe and effective, it generally requires a one-night stay for observation. The procedure takes anywhere from three to five hours and is performed under general anesthesia.
During a facelift, the surgeon makes incisions along the hairline to ensure they are well-hidden after recovery, and then removes excess tissue, tightens facial muscles, and repositions the skin.
When the surgery is complete, bandages are applied around your face and drains are placed to remove any built-up fluids from the surgery.
The bandages and drains are removed the next day and then you’ll be released to complete the healing process at home.
For the first few days, you will experience some pain, tightness, bruising, and swelling of the skin, but recovery from a facelift is relatively easy and painless, and most patients return to work within 10 to 14 days.
