How Face Lift Procedures Work & What to Expect
There are several different variations of face lift plastic surgery, differing by size, placement, and number of incisions; procedure; and the results. The Thread Lift, also called a Feather or Aptos Lift, is the least invasive, using a thread to tighten the skin, and is performed in our fully accredited AAAASF certified in-office surgical facility.
Plastic surgery for uplifting your facial structure will generally follow the same steps, targeting key areas depending on which procedure you are undergoing– whether it’s for your face, a neck lift, or other facial procedure. Most incisions are made in front of and behind the ear, placed where it will fall into the natural crease of the skin. On occasion, the incision will extend into the scalp. face lifts for men will have the incisions fall into the natural beard lines. During the actual face lift, your plastic surgeon will work with the deeper layers of the face.
Face Lift Procedure FAQ
A face lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that requires small amounts of facial tissue to be surgically altered to improve the contours of the face. Unlike many surgical procedures, though, a face lift is minimally invasive, and most patients experience only minimal discomfort following the procedure.
Your plastic surgeon will perform a complete health assessment to determine if you’re a good candidate for a face lift. In general, good candidates are healthy individuals who do not smoke or abuse substances and who have realistic expectations about the procedure. Face lifts are common for patients between 40 and 70 years of age to help reduce or improve the natural signs of aging.
The length of time required for a face lift procedure can vary depending on the type of Face Lift. Traditional incisions, limited incisions, and neck-lift incisions each have varying levels of complexity. In general, though, you can expect the face lift procedure to take 2 to 4 hours—sometimes longer if you’re combining the face lift with other cosmetic procedures.
It’s usually recommended that you relax at home for about 1 to 2 weeks following your face lift plastic surgery. You’ll want to follow all after-care instructions and avoid rigorous activity during the face lift recovery period. You may experience some minimal discomfort after surgery, but should be fully recovered in about seven weeks.
While a face lift generally isn’t permanent, the effects should last for many years when the procedure is completed by skilled plastic surgeons like Dr. Salameh and Dr. Saba. On average, the effects should remain visible for about 10 years. What’s important to note about any plastic surgery procedure is that nature and gravity will eventually take their course over time. Secondary face lift procedures are not uncommon, particularly in response to natural signs of aging or additional lifestyle changes.
As the effects wear off over time, you may be able to restore the benefits with a secondary face lift procedure. Your plastic surgeon and patient care team will go over your options with you and help develop a plan to meet your cosmetic goals.
