Facelift | The Natural Result

Facelift

Aging of the skin, sun damage, gravity, or genetics can cause the skin of the face to sag. Deep creases can form between the nose and mouth, the jawline can become slack and jowly, and fat deposits and folds can appear around the neck. A facelift can lift and reposition lax skin while removing any excess and tightening underlying muscles.

BEFORE AND AFTER

What to Expect

A facelift tightens underlying muscles, eliminating excess facial fat and redraping the skin of the face and neck, although it cannot stop the aging process. Men and women may also pursue a facelift following massive weight loss.

Your Consult

In a pre-surgical consultation, Dr. Kaufman will discuss your cosmetic goals with you to determine the procedures that will best meet those goals. You’ll also be given more detailed information about what to expect from your surgery, including pre- and post-op instructions.

A facelift can be performed alone, but is also commonly performed in conjunction with additional facial rejuvenation cosmetic procedures. Your results may be further enhanced with the help of nonsurgical medical spa treatments.

Preparing for
Your Facelift

A facelift usually takes several hours to perform, though it can take somewhat longer if you’re having more than one procedure done. During your procedure, the underlying muscles and soft tissues of the face are tightened to help eliminate signs of aging and provide better support to the overlying skin. Fatty deposits are removed along with loose or excess skin.

Recovery &
Results

Although exact times may vary for each individual, the initial recovery from a facelift typically takes 2 to 3 weeks. Most patients are able to return to work after 2 weeks.
