A facelift is a surgical procedure that reduces signs of aging in the face and neck. A facelift doesn’t stop the aging process, but it can delay further signs of aging from becoming more pronounced. A facelift offers more dramatic results than minimally invasive procedures.
Facelifts are the best option for more advanced signs of aging, and they can address many concerns in the face, jawline, and neck.
Some of the most common issues include:
Facelifts can be combined with smaller procedures, such as dermal fillers or eyebrow lifts for optimal rejuvenation.
The process of having a facelift begins with a consultation with one of the experienced doctors at Eternal Hair and Esthetics. Your consultation will include a medical exam, health history, and an in-depth analysis of your facial structures.
The exact details of your procedure will depend on which areas are being treated as well as other individual factors. A facelift is a surgical procedure, so you’ll receive instructions about how to prepare the day before and the morning of your procedure.
Facelifts are performed as same-day outpatient procedures in an FDA-approved sterile surgical setting. Following your surgery, you’ll spend some time recovering in the office. Facelifts require general anesthesia, so you’ll need someone to drive you home after your facelift.
Your provider will give you at-home care instructions and pain medication to reduce any discomfort you have in the first 48 hours following your surgery. You’ll have a follow-up visit about a week after your surgery to make sure healing is progressing and there aren’t any complications to address.
You may need to wear bandages for a few days after surgery, and some swelling, bruising, or redness is normal. You’ll probably feel ready to go out in public about two weeks after your procedure.
It typically takes 2-3 months for your face to regain normal sensation. You should be diligent about wearing sunscreen and avoid direct sunlight during this period. After three months, you’ll enjoy tighter, smoother, natural-looking skin that looks healthy and youthful.
