Face Lift

ABOUT THE PROCEDURE

A face-lift is designed to reduce wrinkles and sagging skin on the face, under the chin and along the jaw line. During the procedure, a surgeon will make incisions around your ears and hairline to help reduce the appearance of scars. The skin is then lifted up, facial and neck muscles are tightened, and excess skin is removed to give you a defined profile.

Sometimes a face-lift is combined with other cosmetic procedures such as an eyelid lift, laser facial resurfacing, forehead lift, or liposuction of the neck.

 

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A FACE-LIFT?

It’s important to have realistic expectations when considering a face-lift. A face-lift can help you look younger and fresher, but it will not create a totally different look. A face-lift will not restore heath or vitality, and it won’t affect the thickness of your skin or change your skin tone. It’s also important not to expect instant results—sometimes it can take up to six months to see the final result. Your surgeon can help you understand what results you can expect and advise you on combining your facelift with other procedures.
