What is a Facelift?

Often ask us what exactly happens during a facelift. A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging on the face and neck. As we age, our facial region starts to lose its volume and elasticity.

A facelift can’t stop the aging process, but it can improve the most noticeable signs of aging because it tightens deeper structures, re-drapes the skin on the face and neck, and removes selected areas of fat. A facelift can be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures, such as a brow lift, liposuction, eyelid surgery, or nose surgery.

Now, while we would love to tell you exactly what will happen during your particular procedure, the facelift surgery is customized for each patient. Depending on your anatomy, genetics, and your goals for the procedure, Dr. Myers will create a detailed and tailored plan just for you. Dr. Myers will talk with you about every single detail of the procedure well before scheduling it.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Facelift?

Patients whose face and neckline have begun to sag and droop, but has skin with elasticity, and well-defined bone structure are fantastic candidates for a facelift.

On top of that, there are general health requirements that need to be met as well. As long as you’re in good mental and physical health, and have a reasonable expectation of what the surgery will do, Dr. Myers will be able to move forward with you.

However, if you smoke, it is a great idea to quit smoking at least 2 weeks before your procedure. This will allow your body to recover faster.

Recovering from a Facelift

Usually expect to have a long and difficult recovery period for a facelift. However, the recovery process is surprisingly short. First of all, Dr. Myers performs the procedure in an outpatient facility. This means that you’ll be able to go home after the surgery. But you will need a driver for the ride home.

Now, for the first two days after the procedure, the bruising and swelling will be the most intense. But after 10 or 14 days, they should be almost invisible. Some of our patients can go out in public within a week. Many patients will be able to return to work within 2 weeks of their procedure, but any kind of strenuous activity or exercise should wait at least 4 weeks.

Dr. Myers will give you detailed instructions on how to care for your face after the procedure to make sure that you get the best results possible. He’ll also help you keep your results for as long as possible.
