How Does Facelift Surgery Work?

A facelift (rhytidectomy) cannot stop the aging process. However, it can “turn back the clock,” improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and re-draping the skin of your face and neck. A facelift can be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as Forehead Lift, Eyelid Surgery, or Nose Reshaping.

Dr. Craig will sometimes perform fat injections at the time of the facelift. He also highly recommends that our patients go through a skin transforming treatment, such as Obagi® skin care, prior to the procedure.

Am I a Good Candidate for Facelift Surgery?

The ideal candidate for facelift surgery is a man or woman who is unhappy with the effects of aging on the mid-to-lower face as well as the neck. Patients should have relatively good skin laxity as well as well-defined bone structure. Those who are non-smokers and in otherwise good health can benefit from the procedure.

Although many patients opt to have facelift surgery are between the ages of 40-60, the procedure can also safely be performed for patients well into their 70s or 80s. Dr. Craig will assess your candidacy for the procedure at the time of your in-person consultation.

How Long Does a Typical Facelift Procedure Take?*

Facelift surgery is a highly personalized procedure. Procedure times can vary based on several factors that can alter the complexity of your surgery. Depending on your goals and the surgical techniques chosen to achieve them, you can expect to be in surgery anywhere from 2-4 hours. General anesthesia is used to minimize discomfort throughout. Facelifts are performed as an outpatient procedure.

What Results Will I See?*

Patients can expect some immediate improvement from their facelift surgery. Loose, sagging skin will be no more while fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed. The majority of post-surgical swelling will subside in 2-3 months helping you gradually achieve a more youthful appearance. Full results from your facelift procedure can take up to 6-12 months.

Is There Any Downtime?*

Individual recovery times may vary, especially if you are having multiple procedures performed. Typically, the first several days post-op are the worst when it comes to swelling and discomfort. Prescription pain medication can help keep you comfortable during this time.

Many patients are able to head back to work 5-7 days after their surgery. Those with more strenuous jobs may need to wait upwards of 2+ weeks. You’re free to start incorporating normal activities into your daily routine as you begin to feel more like yourself. However, it’s important to listen to your body throughout the healing process. In most cases, you can expect to be 100% after about 4-6 weeks.
