Combined with other procedures, facelift surgery can improve the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening muscles and re-draping the skin of your face and neck. Northern Virginia and Washington DC Metro area facelift surgery cannot stop the aging process, but it can set back the clock.
A facelift can make you look younger and fresher, and it may enhance your self confidence. Other procedures done in conjunction may include a forehead brow lift, eyelid surgery, neck lift surgery and nose reshaping.
Facelift patients are encouraged to follow their after-care instructions. It may take several months for swelling to fully dissipate and up to six months for incision lines to lighten. Once healed, the incision lines from a facelift are well concealed within the hairline and in the natural contours of the face and ear. Sun protection will help to maintain your rejuvenated appearance by minimizing photo-aging or sun damage.
