What is Facelift Surgery?
Also known as a rhytidectomy, facelift surgery can help you achieve multiple aesthetic goals in the face and neck, such as:
- A sagging appearance
- Deep creases below the lower eyelids and along the corners of your mouth
- A sunken or hollow appearance in the face
- The appearance of jowls in the chin and jawline
- A “double chin” appearance underneath the chin
How Does Facelift Surgery Work?
At Fine Arts Skin and Laser, we understand that a facelift is not just about lifting and redraping the skin – it involves all layers of the soft tissue and involves repositioning the skin, underlying tissues, and fat padding. Excess fat and/or skin are also trimmed away to create a smoother, younger-looking profile overall.
This procedure has evolved into several techniques ranging from minimally-invasive to more extensive depending on the level of correction that is required. Dr. Hartman and our medical team will assess your individual condition, preferences, and aesthetic goals and create a customized surgical plan with you.
In some cases, facelift surgery may be combined with other facial procedures to maximize results. These options can be discussed during your consultation.
What Can I Expect After Surgery?
The incision pattern of your individual procedure will be planned with you prior to the surgery, but typically facelift incisions are hidden around the ears and into the hairline to reduce visible scarring. Dr. Hartman will close sutures carefully using a microscope, and you will be given any post-surgical aftercare instructions in order to reduce infection and ensure the best results. As recovery time can be different for all patients, Dr. Hartman can advise you on when you can safely return to work and normal activities. Your healing and progress will be monitored through follow up appointments.
