Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Facelift?
Facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging on the face and neck. As individuals age, the skin and muscles of the face region begin to lose tone. The facelift cannot stop the process of aging. It can improve the most visible signs of aging by tightening deeper structures, redraping the skin of face and neck, and removing selected areas of fat. A facelift can be performed alone, or in conjunction with other procedures, such as a brow lift, liposuction, eyelid surgery, or nasal surgery.
How do I known if I’m a good candidate for a Facelift?
Facelift surgery is individualized for each patient. The best candidates for facelift surgery have a face and neck line beginning to sag, but whose skin has elasticity and whose bone structure is well defined.
What type of anesthesia will I receive for my Facelift?
Facelifts are usually performed with general anesthesia.
How are Facelifts performed?
For a traditional facelift, an incision is made behind and slightly in front of ears and the skin of the face is lifted from the underlying tissues and muscle. The facial skin is then tightened and the excess removed before the incisions are closed. A bandage will be applied to the face at the completion of surgery.
How long is the surgery for a Facelift?
Surgery is usually preformed as an outpatient or overnight stay and usually takes about two to three hours.
Will I have scars after my Facelift?
Most women can use their hair to hide the scars. For women with short hair, it might be a good idea to allow your hair to grow slightly longer while the scars are still fresh. You also can meet with our esthetician to discuss special makeup that can camouflage the scars.
How much pain can I expect after my Facelift?
You may experience some temporary discomfort, particularly around the incisions, but this can be relieved with prescription medication.
What should I expect of the recovery after my Facelift?
You can expect some bruising and swelling after your facelift. Most of the swelling should fade within about a week, while the bruising may take two to three weeks to clear up. You may experience some headaches and numbness, itching and hair loss at the incision. Bandages applied after surgery are usually removed within a couple of days, and stitches may be removed within one to two weeks.
How much time should I plan to take off from work after my Facelift?
Normal activities, including work, can usually be resumed within 2 weeks.
How soon after my Facelift can I exercise?
Any strenuous exercise will need to be postponed for at least 4-6 weeks, and sun exposure will need to be limited for several months.
What are the risks and complications involved with having a Facelift?
