Facelift

The face is our most visible and our most unique body part; it is, literally, the face we present to the world and what we look at when we examine ourselves in the mirror.  And unfortunately, our face shows the most obvious signs of aging, such as decreasing elastin and collagen levels, thinning and stretching skin, and diminished facial volume. 

Our face is also most affected by environmental factors like sun damage, smoke and pollution, stress and poor sleep habits, significant changes in weight, and repetitive facial expressions.  So it is no wonder that more and more people are turning to the power of modern medicine to ensure that their face reflects their inner vitality and youthfulness.
The modern facelift procedure (or rhytidectomy) can correct the signs of aging and exposure while delivering a natural-looking, aesthetically-appealing result.  In the past, facelifts focused on simply tightening the skin, causing facial features to look pulled back or distorted.  Today’s facelift procedures focus on the underlying tissues and musculature to revitalize the natural contours of the face.  They also seek to eliminate excess fat in the neck and face, smooth creases and wrinkles, and excise loose skin.  A skilled surgeon will not simply tighten the skin, but will utilize the intricate facial structures as a whole to reveal your rejuvenated, naturally-beautiful face.

In order to ensure that your surgery results in a natural, harmonized appearance, your surgery should only be performed by an experienced Board Certified plastic surgeon with extensive knowledge of the intricacies of facial structures and the latest technical procedures required to achieve those results.  You will find such a physician in our board certified plastic surgeons at Tribeca Medaesthetics, a state-of-the-art facility located in Miami Beach, Florida. Our surgeons have in-depth knowledge of all types of facial cosmetic surgeries, and takes pride in helping his patients enhance the balance, proportion, and overall aesthetic appearance of their faces.

FACELIFT PROCEDURE AND RECOVERY

Special Internet Pricing
Facelift surgery is designed to help men and women who are dissatisfied with their facial appearance because of skin wrinkling and sagging, creases beneath the lower eyelids or along the nasolabial folds, residual fat pockets, and “jowls” or “double chin” from excess fat, loose skin, or loss of muscle tone.  It is generally performed as an outpatient procedure using intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.  The procedure usually lasts between two and five hours, depending on the scope of the required adjustments.

Every face is unique, and our board certified plastic surgeons at Tribeca Medaesthetics will work with you to develop a surgical plan designed to meet your individual goals.  Generally, incisions are made in front of and behind the ear, and are kept as small as possible in order to minimize visible scarring.  These incisions enable the surgeon to perform the necessary muscle tightening, liposuction of the face and jowls to remove pockets of excess fat, and removal, tightening, and repositioning of unnecessary skin.  Again, the specific techniques used during your facelift will depend on your customized aesthetic goals.

Post-operative swelling and bruising is very common for the first 24-48 hours after the procedure; ensuring that your head remains elevated above heart-level will help minimize the swelling.  Most bruising will disappear within two weeks of the procedure and the swelling should subside within 3-4 weeks; however, the exact extent of your recovery time will depend on the scope of the procedure and your body’s individual healing capacity.
