What A Facelift Can and Can’t Do??

Featured Image

Aggressive aging of the skin can be difficult to correct with nonsurgical interventions, especially the laxity and wrinkles of the face and the neck. Our professional team offers multiple facelift options at ENT Facial Plastics and Sleep Disorder Center in Atlanta, GA. With detailed medical examinations and established personal goals, our board-certified physicians assist their patients to determine the facelift that meets their needs and to provide beautiful, youthful results.

What is a facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure where small incisions are made in designated areas along the hairline or outer portions of the face and neck, depending on the type of facelift a patient undergoes. This highly methodical procedure corrects facial imperfections by smoothing and tightening loose areas to produce a natural, younger look.

What issues can a facelift address?

A facelift can correct moderate to severe skin imperfections around the eyes, midface, cheeks, jowls, mouth, and neck. Facelift procedures are used to tighten lax skin and soften fine lines and wrinkles of the face and neck.

Are there different types of facelifts?

Our team offers four types of facelifts in Atlanta, GA:

Full facelift: The “traditional” facelift corrects aggressive aging skin across the whole face and involves making incisions along the hairline, which extends down past the temple region and to the base of the ears.

Mid-facelift: The mid-facelift involves correcting lax skin around the cheekbones, the upper jaw, and the jowls.

Lower facelift: The lower facelift focuses on the neck, chin, and occasionally the jowls.

Mini facelift: Mini incisions are made near the ears to lift the skin to enhance features of the mid to lower face.

Does a facelift look unnatural?

Our team in Atlanta, GA produces natural, refreshing facial results. Based on a detailed consultation and medical evaluation, our staff works with each patient to ensure that their facial goals and desires are met.

What are nonsurgical facelift options?

If you are looking to make minor facial improvements, our team at ENT Facial Plastics and Sleep Disorder Center can provide you with additional information regarding nonsurgical facial treatments. Wrinkle fillers and relaxers, such as BOTOX®, are used to correct early signs of aging. However, liquid facelifts are temporary, while surgical facelifts produce dramatic and longer-lasting results.

How much does a facelift cost?

The cost of a facelift procedure will vary per patient depending on which procedure is used and what the desired goals are. Once a treatment plan is developed, our team will provide you with the estimation of fees and low-interest financial plans to make surgery more affordable.

What’s the recovery period like after a facelift?

After surgery, patients can expect some temporary bruising, swelling, and soreness. Our team monitors patients closely before sending them home with recovery details, including precautions to promote proper healing. Within a few weeks, patients will notice their results, including a softer and younger appearance.
