Restore a Youthful Appearance

Aging shows itself early in life due to genetics and lifestyle. There are internal and external factors that cause changes in our facial appearance. Skin that was once smooth becomes dry and flaky. Dyschromia in the form of brown and red spots and broken capillaries appear.

Deep within the skin a protein called collagen provides structure and elastic fibers lend tone. Structure and tone decrease due to the aging process. As the fat below the skin (subcutaneous fat) thins, fat pads become displaced and weak and bone thins.

The overall result is a deflated and sagging appearance. Deep lines of facial expression, jowls, hollows of the cheek and a turkey neck replace the oval shaped face of youth. In many people fat is deposited producing a double chin and adds to the loss of aesthetically desirable youthful curves.

Facelift Recovery Time

The time it takes to recover from a facelift largely depends on the type of procedure. Within 7-14 days you’ll start to feel better and most people are fully recovered within 30 days.

The benefits of facelift surgery are more than physical.

  • Many satisfied patients experience increased confidence
  • A rise in self-esteem then follows.
  • Patients have reported being “happier” and looking and feeling their “best.”
  • Many said they felt a positive impact on their quality of life.

Other procedures that might be performed in conjunction with a facelift are brow lift and eyelid surgery to rejuvenate aging eyes. Fat transfer or fillers may be suggested to replace the lost fatty volume.

Skin treatments such as dermabrasion, peels or laser may be offered to improve the quality and texture of the skin.
