Facelift (Face and Neck Lift)

Facelift (Face and Neck Lift)

Jefferson K. Kilpatrick, MD | Russell B. Stokes, MD | Hannah Parbst, Esthetician

In time, gravity, sun exposure, and the stresses of daily life take their toll on our faces: deep creases appear beside the mouth, the jawline slackens, and folds and fat deposits appear on the neck. Facelifts counteract these problems by removing fat and tightening skin and muscles, giving your face a fresher, youthful look. After surgery, some patients appear 10-15 years younger.

Reasons for considering Facelift:

  • Sagging skin, muscles, and fats in the face and neck.
  • Excess skin and fat on the neck.
  • Sagging jaw line.
  • Crease lines along the nose, mouth, and chin.

Procedure 

May take several hours or longer depending on whether other cosmetic procedures are completed at the same time. Sometimes other procedures may be performed in separate appointments. Patients can discuss with their physician which method is best for them when they come in for their consultation. This operation can be done under general anesthesia, or if you prefer, under sedation utilizing local anesthesia.​

Recovery

The face is immediately fitted with bandages to decrease the recovery time and to reduce swelling. The stitches, clips, or staples are normally removed within a week. Bruising could be present for 2 to 3 weeks. Most people resume most normal activity within 10-14 days.  Must limit exposure to sun for several months. 

Face and Neck Lift

Facelifts are among the most commonly performed plastic surgical operations. This procedure is particularly useful at removing excess skin in the jowl and neck areas.

Procedure 

Excess skin is removed and the result is a more youthful appearance. The scars generally heal very well and are often almost unnoticeable. This operation can be done under general anesthesia, or if you prefer, under sedation utilizing local anesthesia.

Recovery 

Most people resume most normal activity within 10-14 days.
