Facelift For Wrinkles, Jowls, & Loose Skin



Facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, can address loose skin, soft tissue, and muscle laxity that occurs during the natural aging process. Over time, skin begins to lose elasticity, leading to the appearance of unsightly wrinkles and facial furrows. Additionally, repeated exposure to the sun’s rays, lifestyle choices such as smoking, and repeated facial expressions can contribute to the signs of aging. These effects result in a loss of definition around the jawline, cheeks, and upper face, leading to an older-looking profile that may not reflect how you truly feel. Facelift plastic surgeons specialize in innovative surgical techniques that can reposition loose skin and lift facial tissues, producing a younger-looking appearance. If you are suffering from fine lines, hollow cheeks, jowls, or a loss of facial volume, then face lift surgery may be right for you.

Your Face Lift Procedure

Facelift surgery can be performed either at an outpatient surgical facility or a local hospital, depending on the specifics of your procedure. During your facelift, small incisions will be made. Loose tissue and muscle can be shaped to eliminate drooping or wrinkling. Next, any excess skin or fat can be removed to promote firm definition. Lax skin around the upper, mid, and lower face, as well as the neck, can be treated to ensure balanced results. Innovative techniques assure that minimal incisions will be utilized during your facelift surgery. Incisions are strategically placed to ensure they remain virtually unnoticed after your procedure.

Face lift surgery may be combined with a variety of other facial rejuvenation procedures, depending on your treatment goals. Patients may choose to undergo rhinoplasty, chin augmentation, eyelid surgery, or other forms of facial rejuvenation to further enhance their facelift results.

What To Expect After Undergoing Facelift Surgery

Patients are free to return home the day of their face lift surgery. After undergoing a facelift, you can expect some bruising and swelling to occur in the weeks following treatment. Facelift recovery time is dependent on the specifics of your procedure, but many patients are back to work within 1-2 weeks. Your plastic surgeon can provide more detailed timeframes during your consultation for facelift surgery.

Your facelift can yield long-lasting facial rejuvenation results. Unlike non-surgical alternatives, which temporarily replenish volume, face lift surgery addresses underlying layers of loose skin to enhance contours. Individual results will vary by patient. However, many patients see results lasting years after opting for facelift surgery.
