Face Lift

Face Lift

A facelift is a surgical procedure to repair sagging, drooping, and wrinkled skin of the face and neck. A face lift is performed to improve visible signs of aging, poor diet, or heredity; it is performed by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping facial and neck skin.

Most patients are pleased with the results of a facelift. After the face lift, the patient should expect swelling, bruising, skin discoloration, tenderness, and numbness for 10 to 14 days.

Most of the surgical scars from facelifts are hidden in the hairline or the natural lines of the face and will fade over months. Sun exposure after a face lift should be limited.
