What is Involved in a Facelift?
A facelift is a facial rejuvenation surgery that eliminates and tightens excess skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and produce a more youthful appearance. The procedure may soften deeper wrinkles by removing excess skin that is sagging. The facelift may also include removing and/or repositioning pockets of fat and tightening the underlying muscles. The result is a restoration of soft contours that give the face a youthful appearance.
How Much Does a Facelift Cost in Fayetteville, NC?
The cost of your facelift is customized to your specific treatment plan. Factors that affect the cost of your facelift include the recommended technique, complexity of the procedure, and other factors that are determined during the consultation. To help you have a budget in mind when you meet with one of our plastic surgeons, we invite you to learn about our financing options.
What is Involved in a Mini Facelift?
A full facelift corrects wrinkles over the entire area of the face, but not everyone needs such an extensive procedure. The lower third of the face, such as the cheeks, mouth and jawline, often develop the earliest wrinkles. A mini facelift uses similar techniques as a full facelift, but only involves the lower part of the face.
What Are the Benefits of a Facelift?
- Dramatic anti-aging benefits
- Tailored to the needs of the patient
- Can be combined with other facial surgeries and dermal fillers
How Does a Facelift Procedure Work?
Incision placement is an important part of not only achieving the desired benefits of a facelift but also ensuring the scars are not visible once you heal. Some of the most common locations for incisions are just inside the hairline, in the natural crease of the ear and under the chin. If you are having a mini facelift and neck lift [LINK], your plastic surgeon may be able to use the same incisions for both procedures.
What Can I Expect During Recovery From a Facelift?
Rest is critical for the first few days after your facelift. You will feel tired and experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort. We will prescribe medications to help to feel comfortable. You will need to restrict your activities, so we recommend that you have someone stay with you to manage day-to-day needs and ensure that you follow the post-surgical instructions. The initial recovery period can take a few weeks, although it can take several months to fully recover.
What Results Can I Expect from a Facelift?
The results from your facelift treatment will become noticeable as the body heals and recovers from treatment. Most patients notice results within a few weeks of treatment, with the full results becoming visible about two to three months later. A facelift does produce dramatic improvements, yet it will not stop the aging process. By taking care of your skin, you can enjoy the results of your facelift for about 10 to 15 years, but this varies by patient.
