The Benefits of a Face Lift Surgery

The Benefits of a Face Lift Surgery

Gravity, heredity, environmental factors, and stress can cause sagging in your face as you get older. A rhytidectomy, commonly known as a face lift, can improve the visible signs of aging such as deep creases, loss of skin tone in the lower face, and loose skin under the jawline. Your results can be enhanced with other procedures such as facial implants, resurfacing techniques, and dermal fillers.

The Procedure

Depending on your specific needs, your cosmetic surgeon will help you decide if you need a total face lift, mid face lift, lower face lift, or neck lift. A typical face lift incision begins at the hairline near the temples and continues around the ear to the lower scalp. Fat, underlying tissue, and muscle may be re-positioned or lifted during the procedure. The procedure can take anywhere from two hours to six hours to complete.

The Results

You will be able to notice the results of your face lift in two to three weeks after the swelling and bruising has subsided. Be sure to go to your follow up appointments with your cosmetic surgeon to make sure the healing process is going smoothly. The results should last five to ten years.
