What is an Asian Facelift?
As people age, their skin tends to wrinkle and sag. However, different ethnicities have different needs. People of Asian descent, for example, tend to have thick and dense facial skin, which requires a different technique than a standard facelift. While the thickness of the skin helps prevent fine lines and wrinkles, facelifts for Asian descent often focus on drooping muscles of the face and neck. A deep facelift will help rejuvenate this thick skin for long-lasting results. The deep facelift approach is also more successful in reaching the buccal fat pads of the cheeks, which tend to be larger in Asian faces. Reducing the buccal fat pads creates a younger, brighter, and rejuvenated appearance.

Dr. Mang is highly skilled and educated in the ethnic differences of the Asian facial structure and can attend to his patients' specific needs. While you relax in one of our comfortable private procedure rooms, Dr. Mang will perform your facelift with the intensity and care discussed during your initial consultation.

What Can I Expect After My Asian Facelift?
While recovery time varies from patient to patient, you should be able to get back to your normal everyday activities within a week or so. You will likely experience some bruising and swelling, but that is normal and will go away in time. Some patients may experience some numbness near the incision site. This, too, is normal and should disappear as you continue to heal. Dr. Mang or a member of his team will give you at-home care instructions and set up any follow-up appointments as necessary.
Asian Facelift FAQ
How is an Asian facelift different than other facelifts?
Often, because Asian skin is thicker and more resilient, a specialized deeper facelift method is used. This tightens sagging or drooping skin for a more youthful look while taking care to maintain and preserve unique ethnic features.
How much does an Asian facelift cost?
The costs for your Asian facelift procedure will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Mang. There are a variety of factors that can affect the cost, including facelift procedures and aesthetic goals. After Dr. Mang has decided on the right course to achieve your goals, he can estimate your costs.
How long is the recovery time after an Asian facelift?
Every patient has their own unique healing responses, but most patients should plan to take a week off from regular activities. During the recovery period, some patients may experience minor discomfort, swelling, or bruising. During your consultation, Dr. Mang or a member of his team can talk to you about aftercare and recovery time.
Are the results from an Asian facelift surgery immediate?
While you will notice a change in your facial appearance shortly after surgery, the final results will become evident after the swelling and bruising subside, usually within a few months.
What is the best age to get an Asian facelift?
There is no specific "best" age for an Asian facelift, as the timing largely depends on individual aging patterns and personal preferences. However, patients often consider this procedure anywhere from their 40s to 60s.
How long do the results of an Asian facelift last?
The results of an Asian facelift are typically long-lasting. However, natural aging may still occur. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including refraining from smoking, a healthy diet, and regular physical activity, can help extend the results.
