  • What Can a Facelift Offer?

    A facelift is a procedure that is meant to help patients look younger and rejuvenated by getting rid of common signs of aging. It can shave years or even decades off of the patient’s appearance, which is why it’s so popular among those who are advancing in age. It can also be a good option to address premature aging caused by stress, illness, or genetics that common cosmetic solutions can’t effectively treat.
  • How Does a Facelift Work?

    The process of getting a facelift involves creating small incisions and then lifting the underlying tissues of the face. This corrects sagging, reducing the appearance of jowls and wrinkles in a way that looks natural.
  • When Is the Best Time to Get a Facelift?

    Patients can technically get a facelift at any point as long as they are of legal age. Most patients who get this procedure are in their late 30s to early 60s, depending on how well they have aged. They can also get a facelift more than once with a decade gap between them.
  • Can a Facelift Get Rid of Wrinkles?

    By tightening the underlying tissues, a facelift can get rid of several facial wrinkles, including crow’s feet and folds around the nose and mouth.

  • Does a Facelift Require a Long Recovery?

    The recovery period after a facelift can range from four to six weeks. There are several factors that can affect the rate of healing, including the quality of rest and the extent of the procedure. If the patient gets both a face and neck lift, for example, the recovery period would be longer.
  • How Much Does a Facelift Cost?

    A few factors can have an impact on how much the facelift will cost, which will be covered in the discussions during the consultation.
