5 Great FAQ’s About Facelifts

If you are considering a facelift for your facial rejuvenation procedure, you might also have a lot of questions. We have compiled the top five FAQ’s about facelifts just for you.

What can a facelift achieve?

A facelift can lift sagging jowls, smooth deep wrinkles, correct “sunken” cheeks, improve loose skin and muscle bands in the neck.

What can it be combined with?

Patients sometimes choose to undergo a chin implant, browlift, eyelid surgery, or injectables in addition to their facelifts.

What does the procedure entail?

Incisions are made discretely in the hairline or around the ears, and the layer of tissue between the skin and facial structure is supported for a smoother look.

Does it hurt?

Anesthesia will be administered during the procedure, so the patient will not feel pain in surgery. During the recovery, pain medication will be prescribed to minimize any discomfort.

How long do results last?

If performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon, results should last 10 years or more. Over time, the aging process will continue.
