What is a Facelift?
A facelift is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures, giving patients the ability to undo years of aging in a single treatment. This procedure removes excess skin and tightens the skin on the face to alleviate wrinkles and folds. A facelift is one of the only procedures that can produce such drastic results in one session. However, the face is incredibly delicate and requires substantial time and attention to detail. Dr. Afrooz recognizes the gravity of these procedures, and is motivated by the opportunity to give his patients the best possible results.
What is a Mini Facelift?
A mini facelift is similar to a traditional facelift, but it targets a smaller area of the face. A mini facelift addresses the cheeks and jowls, and is a more “accelerated” version of a facelift, with a shorter treatment time and recovery period. This procedure will leave some areas untreated, such as the forehead, although it is still an intricate procedure that requires precision and expertise.
What Can I Expect from a Facelift Procedure?
A facelift procedure can be lengthy, lasting upwards of three hours. A facelift can vary depending on the desires of the patient, so a number of different techniques may be involved. Typically, incisions are made around the face, which are later closed using stitches. Then, excess skin is removed from the face, and the remaining skin is tightened to create a younger appearance. If the patient is combining a facelift with other procedures such as a neck lift, those will be performed at the same time.
How is Recovery from a Facelift?
After a facelift, you can expect a recovery period of at least six weeks. Immediately after your surgery, we recommend getting as much rest as possible, as this will ensure a smooth and speedy recovery. You will have to be careful around the incisions and protect the skin from the sun and other irritants while you heal. You can expect some swelling or bruising for a few weeks after your procedure. Afterward, you should be able to enjoy the full results of your facelift. The results from a facelift are long-lasting, but they do not prevent further aging from occurring.
