Frequently asked questions about facelift surgery

woman with perfect hairstyle Even though wrinkles and sagging are signs of the aging process, it doesn’t mean you have to live with it. If you are unhappy with the signs of aging on your face and interested in achieving a more rejuvenated appearance, you may be considering all of your non-surgical and surgical options. Known as rhytidectomy, a facelift is a highly successful cosmetic surgery that will lift facial sagging and drooping skin and give you a younger look. Read on to learn more about facelift surgery and who can benefit.

What does a facelift do?

A facelift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that tightens muscles, removes fat and trims excess skin from the face. This typically two-hour surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure under local or general anesthesia. Depending upon your concerns, the surgical approach will differ among patients. Incisions are most often hidden in the hairline or along the natural contours of the face.

Can a facelift be combined with other treatments and procedures?

Often, patients choose to combine a facelift with other skin rejuvenation treatments or procedures such as eyelid surgery or a forehead lift. This will add more time to the procedure, but it means the patient will only have one recovery period.

Who benefits from a facelift?

If you have deep under-eye creases, sagging in the mid-face, nasolabial folds, jowls, sagging fat and loose skin and excess fat under the chin and jaw, then you would benefit from a facelift.

Who is a candidate for surgery?

If you want to correct one or more areas on the face that are showing signs of aging and you have good elasticity in your skin, then you would be a candidate for a facelift. Ideal patients are in good health and do not smoke. It’s important to have realistic expectations for the outcome of surgery.
