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.
The mini facelift is similar to a traditional facelift in the way it targets similar areas of the face. The mini facelift focuses on specific problem areas of the face, neck, nose and area around the mouth.
Mini-Face lift Recovery
Because the incisions are not as aggressive as a full-facelift, the recovery process may be easier and take less time for the swelling to go down.
Sun protection will help to maintain a rejuvenated appearance by minimizing photo-aging or sun damage. In addition, facelift patients have the opportunity to visit our Elite Skin Center to learn how they can enhance their results.
Another option available to some patients is the mid-facelift. Unlike a traditional facelift procedure that might target all areas of the face and neck, the mid facelift procedure is designed to correct the area around the eyes and sagging cheekbones. It restores fullness to these areas and this makes the patient look younger. Because the mid-facelift procedure corrects some of the early signs of aging, we find it gives a rejuvenated appearance to somebody who has started the aging process but does not yet feel the need for a full-facelift.
This procedure is especially dramatic when combined with other procedures such as a brow lift and eyelid surgery. The combined procedures rejuvenate the cheekbone area and brighten the eyes. Many mid-facelift patients in their late thirties to late forties can have marked improvement in their appearance with a procedure whose scars are all hidden in the hairline.
Mid-facelift patients return the next day for their first post-op visit. You will have an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
