Facelift (Rytidectomy)

Aging of the face may be inevitable, but looking old is not. Facelift surgery has become extremely popular and is being sought by many women and men who want to maintain a healthy, attractive, youthful appearance.

A Facelift Corrects the Visible Signs of Aging

Time, gravity, and years of exposure to the elements conspire to bring about the inevitable signs of aging in facial skin. As we age, the skin loosens, thins, and sags on the face and neck. Crow’s feet appear at the corners of the eyes. Folds by the upper and lower lip or marionette lines develop. The jawline softens into jowls. The neck skin and muscle loosen, and a wattle or double chin may form. As the platysmal muscle relaxes, vertical folds appear on the front of the neck. Wrinkles develop, and pouches may form in the cheeks, jawline, and neck.

Look 10-15 Years Younger…

Dr. Jaffer has performed many facelift procedures. His extensive surgical expertise and comprehensive experience will allow you to look 10 to 15 years younger. A facelift – through removing excess skin and tightening sagging tissue – can turn back the clock and restore the youthful appearance that reflects how you feel. Whether you have a facelift to improve the advanced signs of aging or to remove mild jowling and minimal skin laxity, a facelift should make you look relaxed, refreshed, and more youthful. Many patients experience increased self-confidence.

Procedures that are frequently performed along with your facelift to give an overall harmonious appearance include eyelid surgery, brow lift, chin augmentation, and neck liposuction. In many cases, multiple procedures can be performed simultaneously without increasing discomfort or recovery time. When you come for your consultation, Dr. Jaffer will formulate a treatment plan to suit your specific needs.

Facelift FAQ

Who is a candidate for a Facelift?

If you have experienced a loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone of the face and neck. If you have the appearance of jowls and deep creases between the base of the nose and the corners of the mouth. If you have developed facial and neck wrinkles. If you believe you lack youthful chin and neck contours. If you think you have a tired facial appearance.

What is Facelift surgery and recovery like?

Facelift procedures are done on an outpatient basis. Monitored Anesthesia Care (MAC) is usually used for safety and comfort.

After a facelift, the patient goes home with head and neck wrapped in dressings, which are usually removed the next day. Minimal initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. Sutures are removed within 14 days. Bruising and swelling decrease to “socially acceptable” levels in 10-20 days. The final result from a facelift is evident in 4-6 weeks or sooner, with continued improvement for several months.

Procedures that would enhance the results of a facelift are Eyelid Lift, Brow Lift, Chemical Peel, Facial Sanding (dermabrasion), Chin Enlargement, Rhinoplasty, Fat Suction, and Laser Skin Resurfacing.

How much does Facelift surgery cost?

Because every patient’s concerns and desires are unique, we recommend that you schedule a consultation with Dr. Jaffer. At the time of your consultation, your face, neck, and other factors will be evaluated, and a treatment plan will be proposed. With those variables identified, it will then be possible to estimate a firm idea of the costs associated with your facelift procedure.
