What a Facelift Can Do

The purpose of a facelift is to improve specific signs of aging which include: lines/wrinkles, neck laxity, jowls, loss of muscle tone in the face/upper neck, loss of contour at jawline/chin, deep creases around the nose/mouth, and loss of skin elasticity. Your results should be natural and provide a refreshed appearance. Our techniques aim to restore signs of aging by 8-12 years. Depending on age, lifestyle, and genetics, facial lines/wrinkles can be improved by about 60%.

What a Facelift Can’t Do

This procedure is the gold standard technique for visibly reducing the signs of aging with results that last longer than any other treatment. Patients should not expect to look 20 years younger. Although this procedure can create a more youthful appearance, it does not correct all the signs of aging across the entire face/neck. Concerns for drooping eyebrows, heavy eyelids, or very thin loose creepy skin may require other techniques for correction. Future considerations for improvements after surgery involve maintenance to further target lines/wrinkles, skin texture/tone, and loose skin. These may include lasers, radiofrequency devices, spa treatments, and topical products.

At what point should I get a facelift?

The right time for a facelift varies by individual. Generally, it is considered when signs of aging become prominent and other non-surgical treatments no longer provide satisfactory results. A consultation with a plastic surgeon can help determine the best timing based on your specific needs and goals.
