Maintain Your Face’s Youthful Appearance
With a long history in plastic surgery, facelift procedures are still producing fantastic, smooth results that can erase a decade off of your appearance. Today’s innovative surgical technologies allow for a natural looking result with few, if any, telltale signs of the surgery. A facelift can address loose and sagging skin, facial lines and wrinkles as well as a loss of definition in the chin. Facial muscles and skin will be toned and tightened, leaving you with a confident, youthful and refreshed looking face.
Facelift Procedure by Dr. Eric Weiss
Dr. Weiss begins your initial consultation by reviewing before and after photos of other facelift patients, and will help you select the level of correction for you to achieve your desired look. All applicable costs will also be reviewed during this confidential appointment.
Incisions are strategically placed under the chin, behind the ear or along the hairline and then excess skin is removed. Before suturing, the remaining skin is smoothed and tightened, leaving patients with a natural facial contour. Facelift procedures usually last three hours or less in length.
Facelifts should only be scheduled when proper time to heal is available. Patients can expect to experience bruising, swelling, numbness and a tight feeling during the post-operative recovery period. These side effects should diminish within two weeks, at which time most patients will be able to return to work. Additionally, facelift patients can expect some additional physical limitations during the early healing period.
