What is a facelift?

Simply put, a facelift is a cosmetic procedure that combats signs of aging by tightening the skin around the face and neck. If you are dealing with sagging facial skin, fine lines, or wrinkles, a face lift is the perfect solution to these problems.

Facelifts are aimed specifically at the lower part of the face, including the jawline, cheeks and mouth. Patients who undergo a facelift look firmer and younger.

What happens during surgery?

Depending on the concerns of facial cosmetics you have, your plastic surgeon can choose between a variety of techniques to use during your LIFT procedure. Typically, anesthesia is administered and then your surgeon will place incisions within the folds of the ears or around the hairline depending on your particular technique. From there, the procedure will be to eliminate excess fat, repositioning the underlying facial muscles and raising. Once the procedure is completed, the incisions will be closed with stitches or skin adhesives.

You may feel swelling and redness in the face in the first few days after the face lift surgery. Some patients may also feel tightness and slight discomfort on the face. Although the swelling and pain will improve soon after the operation, the complete recovery period usually lasts about two weeks.
