A facelift is the most comprehensive method for treating facial wrinkles and sagging skin. The procedure removes excess skin, tightens underlying muscles and deep tissues, and redrapes the skin to provide a lifted, smoother look. A facelift can correct midface sagging, hanging jowls, and a double chin. Surgical incisions vary depending on the area of the face that is targeted but are placed to be as inconspicuous as possible. Facelift results can last for 10 years and often make patients look 10-15 years younger. Facelift surgery can be combined with neck liposuction or facial laser resurfacing to further improve facial contour and skin texture while reducing deep wrinkles. We typically perform all of these procedures under tumescent local anesthesia or twilight anesthesia, both of which are safer than general anesthesia. During your consultation, your doctor will determine if you are a good candidate for a facelift and thoroughly review the procedure, pre-operative requirements, and post-operative expectations.
