Your face is your identity and any apparent changes in your features or skin may make you feel less confident in your appearance. There are several reasons for such changes and are not merely age or genetics related. A number of our patients struggle with changes due to sun exposure, environmental damage, lifestyle choices, and neglect. When these changes make you look older than how you feel, you must consider a facial rejuvenation procedure. Our team of experts recommends the facelift procedure which subtly lifts your facial features and addresses your specific skin concerns. At Cosmetic Surgery Associates, you get the advantage of a customizable facelift procedure that helps you restore the harmony in your face with natural results and a subsequent boost to your self-confidence. 

Even though we cannot stop facial aging, this can definitely be addressed with the right facial rejuvenation procedure. The facelift procedure takes years off your appearance and refreshes your skin to give you that well-contoured look. You can be assured of dramatic yet natural-appearing results which last long and do not look like you underwent a surgical procedure.

What Can I Expect from My Facelift Procedure?

It is easy to expect an absolute change after undergoing a cosmetic procedure but it is important that you have realistic expectations. Your face cannot change with the procedure but you get a beautiful balance in your features and any skin irregularities such as laxity, lines, and wrinkles are eliminated for a smooth and youthful appearance.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?

Usually, patients seeking the facelift procedure are struggling with various issues including loss of volume and muscle tone in their face, skin sagging, fatty deposits like a double chin, lines, and folds. During your facelift consultation, we evaluate your facial changes and listen to your issues and goals before recommending the facelift procedure to effectively address these concerns. We offer customized solutions that take into account your unique needs and help you achieve your personal cosmetic goals.

What Kind of Scars Will I Get from a Facelift?

During your facelift procedure, the surgeon makes incisions around your cheek area and the chin allowing him access to the fat and excessive skin. We ensure your incisions are well-concealed and usually made behind your ears and within your hairline. The resultant scars from these incisions fade away over time as well.

What Can I Expect During My Recovery?

The facelift surgical procedure is invasive, and you will be required to take time off from work to allow your body to heal. You may also be required to wear a compression garment initially during your recovery period, and you may also have drainage tubes covering your face and scalp. This avoids fluid collection or seroma and the compression garment keeps a check on any swelling from the surgery. 

You will be given instructions for the recovery period and it is important that you follow these to heal well. You must keep your head in an elevated position for the first 2 weeks post-surgery. You will also be advised against any athletic activities or strenuous exercises for 30 days post-surgery. When you come for your follow-up appointments, our team will evaluate your recovery and healing and accordingly advise you on increasing your level of activity. 

If the signs of aging on your face are only mild, you can consider getting a mini facelift instead. This procedure offers you a shorter recovery period and results typically last for about 5 years. When you undergo the full facelift procedure, your results may last for as long as 10 years and it usually takes 10 years off your appearance too. Whichever procedure you choose, at Cosmetic Surgery Associates, you can always be assured of stunning results and a great recovery period.
