How It’s Done
The type of surgical technique we use is dependant on
the position of a patient’s eyebrows, the amount of excess upper eyelid
skin they have, the depth of forehead wrinkling, and the height of their hairline. Our plastic surgeon makes an incision across the top of the scalp behind the hairline starting above the ears. Through these incisions, the surgeon can modify or remove parts of the muscles that cause frown lines, smooth the forehead by removing excess skin and lift your eyebrows to a more youthful position.
Am I A Candidate?
If you are in good general health and have specific but realistic goals for the improvement of your appearance, there is no defined age limit for this procedure.
What To Expect
Facelift surgery patients can return home the same day of surgery. Typical recovery time is approximately 3-4 weeks with mild discomfort. Bruising and swelling of the eyes and forehead is normal and should subside within 2 to 3 weeks. Some numbness of the skin is quite normal and disappears in a few weeks. Patients should rest for the first 4-7 days post-operatively. Patients should refrain from any physical activity for 3 weeks after surgery.
