As we reach 40 or 50, our faces begin to give us away when it comes to our age. Cheeks sag, neck skin becomes loose, and ever deeper lines form around the mouth which can make us look much older than we feel.
Facelift procedures & surgery, in which Dr. Hall repositions the tissues of the face to their proper, youthful place, can help to rejuvenate a tired, aged appearance. Dr. Hall takes care to place incisions in locations that are not noticeable after they have healed.
You may be a candidate for a facelift if you are healthy, don’t’ smoke, and:
A facelift is performed in an outpatient surgery center, and is done under anesthesia. Facelift surgery length can range in time depending on what different procedures you and Dr. Hall decide are right for you. You will usually go home the day of the procedure and will apply cooling packs to your face to minimize swelling and discomfort.
Over the course of the first week after facelift surgery, swelling of the face significantly decreases. Sutures are typically removed 5 days after surgery. Small drain tubes that were placed in the operating room are usually removed the next day. Because of the swelling, most people take a week or two off work for facelift procedure recovery.
