What Is A Facelift?

Our office offers a full range of facial cosmetic surgery procedures. Among our most popular procedures at Premier Surgical Arts is a facelift. This treatment focuses on distinct sections of the face to smooth drooping skin and wrinkles to produce a refreshed, taut appearance. Based upon your aesthetic goals, a facelift can focus on the areas around the eyes, the mid-face area and cheeks, or the bottom two-thirds (including the mouth, jowls, neck, and more) for an all-around youthful look. The facelift method used depends on your goals, the condition of your skin, the amount of laxity present, lifestyle, age, and other factors. Some individuals may be candidates for a full facelift while others may only need a mid-facelift. Dr. Demaree is a highly trained and experienced surgeon who understands the anatomy and complex intricacies of a facelift procedure. The objective is to create a natural appearance that's smooth and appealing.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?

Generally, people who desire a surgical facelift want to tighten noticeable skin laxity around the temple to jowl regions of the face. A facelift can target various sections, depending on your unique signs of aging. It is important to note that age doesn't always define the most effective time to seek out cosmetic facial surgery. There are several individual reasons, in addition to many lift techniques, to inform the choice. The lifting technique performed will vary for candidates under 50 and those with more advanced aging. Skin laxity is one of the key components in the decision-making process. Also, facelift patients must be in good physical health, refrain from smoking, and maintain practical outcome expectations.

What Are the Types of Facelifts?

Regardless of your aesthetic concerns, there are various levels of facelifts to think about. Some facelifts treat the upper portion of the face, and others focus on the middle and lower. In addition, some methods are slightly more invasive and intricate than others. It's very common for some individuals to have a brow lift, forehead lift, or fillers and BOTOX® to complement their results. Some of the more common facelift options include :

Full Facelift

Considered the gold standard, the full facelift usually incorporates an incision along the hairline, extending down to the temple region, stopping near the base of the ears.

This facelift is reserved for men and women who have signs of advanced aging. With this lift, several procedures may be combined, including an eyelid lift to enhance the eyes or neck reduction for the lower region.

With a similar approach to the mini facelift, the mid-facelift (cheeks) addresses the droopy features around the cheekbones and the upper jaw. This lift works well for those who seek improvement in the lower two-thirds of the face, which also includes the jowls.

Lower Facelift

This particular facelift addresses the neck region, chin, and sometimes the jowls. Methods of a nonsurgical nature can also be applied for chin augmentation to attain a younger, tighter-looking neck.

Mini Facelift

During a mini facelift, a small incision is made near the ears to lift the skin, which helps the mid to lower face. This technique creates subtle improvements that look beautiful and natural.

What Can I Expect After a Facelift?

After your facelift surgery at Premier Surgical Arts, we will monitor your health until you can be safely released to go home with a responsible adult. Prior to your facelift, Dr. Demaree or someone on his team will plan your follow-up appointments and discuss tips to make you recover faster and more comfortably. You should expect to have bruising and swelling, slight to moderate soreness, and discomfort, which can be reduced by pain medication. You should feel and look normal after 2 – 4 weeks. You can expect a softer, more youthful appearance. Overall, your face will appear lifted and younger-looking.
