A Face Lift Can Revitalize Your Appearance and Your Confidence
Achieve a More Youthful Look
By removing excess skin and smoothing wrinkles, your doctor can address the telltale signs of aging that cause you to look tired or unhealthy.
Improve Facial Definition
By tightening underlying facial muscles, your doctor can improve existing contours, including the jawline, for more prominent features and improved facial definition.
A face lift can turn back the hands of time. Rejuvenating your appearance can help you look younger, healthier, and more rested, often providing a renewed sense of self-confidence.

The Results Sound Incredible but Aren't Face Lifts Expensive?
As of 2016, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) estimates the average cost of a facelift is $7,048. The cost of surgery is typically dependent upon certain factors such as the extent of your procedure, operating room facilities, and your surgeon's experience. In most cases, a face lift will not be covered by your insurance. However, many doctors offer financing to help make treatment more affordable.
So, what happens during a face lift?
Typically, a face lift takes about three to four hours. However, this depends on whether you are also including any other procedures such as eyelid surgery or cheek implants, which could substantially impact treatment time.
What to Expect during Face Lift Surgery
First, anesthesia will be administered for your comfort.
The doctor will then make the incisions around your earlobe, in front of the ears, or behind the ears.
The underlying muscles and loose skin will be tightened. Excess skin will then be removed.
The doctor will skillfully close incisions for minimal scarring.
Immediately following surgery, drainage tubes will often be placed to help with swelling. You will also be provided with post-surgical dressings, bandages, and compression garments to encourage healing during recovery.

Your May Have Several Options to Rejuvenate Your Appearance
A face lift is the most extensive facial cosmetic surgery and is often recommended for patients who seek more dramatic results. However, patients who wish to only address certain areas of the face may benefit from a mini or mid facelift. A mini face lift focuses on the lower third of the face and jawline while a mid face lift is centralized around the under eye area, cheeks, and smile lines. Your long-term goals and concerns can help determine whether a full face lift is the best treatment for you.
A face lift can refresh your appearance while preserving the unique features that define you. To learn more about the face lift process, schedule a consultation with your doctor.
