Can I Get a Facelift?

If you're considering a facelift, you may be bothered by progressive skin laxity, drooping, and deep facial folds around the middle and lower sections of your face. Facelift surgery at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery can address one or more sections, depending on your unique needs. Age doesn't always determine the best time to have a facelift. There are many factors and numerous lift methods to consider. The most appropriate type of facelift will differ from patient to patient based on individual variables, including the nature and extent of the patient's concerns, their degree of skin laxity, and others. Generally speaking, good candidates for facelift surgery have moderate to severe signs of facial aging, are in good overall health, and do not smoke.

How is a Facelift Performed?

There are a number of different facelift methods available today, each of which is designed to address a unique set of concerns. Some facelifts treat the upper portion of your face, while others focus on the middle and lower facial features. The level of invasiveness will also differ, depending on what facelift option you choose. Many of our Atlanta, GA patients choose to have a brow lift, forehead lift, or BOTOX® and fillers in conjunction with their facelift surgery to achieve an even more complete transformation. Among the most popular types of facelift surgeries are the:

  • Full facelift:
    Considered the gold standard, the full or "traditional" facelift usually puts an incision along your hairline, which extends down to the temples, reaching the base of your ears. The deeper layer of your facial muscles is delicately pulled and tightened to create a lifted appearance, diminishing excessive wrinkles and sagging. This is great if you have signs of advanced aging, or would benefit from several treatments, including an eyelid lift to address the eyes or a neck lift for the lower region.
  • Mid-facelift:
    The mid-facelift, also known as the cheek lift, addresses sagging around the cheekbones and the upper jaw. The mid-facelift works great if you are seeking improvement in the lower two-thirds of your face, which also improves the look of your jowls.
  • Lower facelift:
    This lift addresses the neck region and chin, and in many cases, the jowls. Methods of a nonsurgical nature, such as laser skin tightening, can also be applied for chin augmentation to help you get a younger-looking neck.
  • Mini facelift
    When undergoing a mini facelift, a tiny incision is made around your ears to lift the skin to a higher position, which enhances your mouth and jawline. This process creates subtle improvements that look natural.

What Can I Expect After My Facelift?

Following your facelift, you will be monitored in our private recovery area until you can be safely released to be taken home by a responsible adult. Prior to your procedure, Dr. Mang or a member of his staff will schedule your follow-up appointments and give you comprehensive aftercare guidelines to ensure a safe and successeful facelift recovery. Bruising, swelling, possible drainage, slight to moderate pain, and soreness can all be expected but are typically well tolerated when paired with an appropriate recovery routine. Prescription pain medication may be prescribed to help relieve your postoperative symptoms. Depending on the type of facelift performed and other individual factors, patients may require up to 1-3 weeks off of work after surgery, with exercise and more strenuous physical activity remaining off limits for up to 4-6 weeks or longer. After you have fully recovered from facelift surgery, which may take several months including the time needed for swelling to completely resolve, you can enjoy your youthful new look for years to come.

Facelift FAQ

How much does a facelift cost?
The total cost of your facelift will vary based on the technique used. During your consultation, Dr. Mang will create your custom treatment plan to match your needs and goals. When this is complete, he can go over estimates of fees. To avoid unnatural-looking results, it's best to focus on finding an experienced surgeon, like Dr. Mang, instead of the cheapest price. Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery can give you information on low-interest medical financing that will make your surgery easier to afford.

Which technique is best for me?
The best surgical facelift technique for you will depend on your needs, goals, degree of skin laxity, which areas are being addressed, and more. To produce the results you want, Dr. Mang will explain the different techniques in your consultation. He will then help you decide which technique is best.

Should I get a surgical or nonsurgical facelift?
While there are many great noninvasive skin tightening procedures, these can usually only produce mild improvements. For moderate to severe skin sagging, a surgical facelift is the best choice to significantly improve your appearance. During your consultation, Dr. Mang will discuss your options, including nonsurgical procedures, to help you decide which is best for your needs and goals.

What about wrinkle fillers and relaxers over facelift surgery?
Wrinkle fillers and relaxers, like JUVÉDERM® and BOTOX, have become more popular to refresh the face. Sometimes known as a liquid facelift, injectable wrinkle treatments can give early signs of aging, but the results are temporary. A facelift can produce more dramatic improvements than injectables with results that can last for a long time. Ask Dr. Mang about nonsurgical wrinkle treatments during your consultation.

Will my results look natural?
Many patients worry that facelift surgery will make their skin look shiny, overly tight, or like they are in a wind tunnel. Dr. Mang focuses on giving you a natural-looking result, so you look refreshed and not fake. He listens to your concerns and goals before developing your personal treatment plan to produce your best results.
