Look As Young As You Feel
As we age, our skin naturally loses its elasticity, and collagen production slows down. This can lead to a number of visible signs of aging, including sagging skin, deep wrinkles, loss of facial fat, drooping cheeks and jawline, and excess fat and loose skin in the neck region.
A Reston facelift is a surgical procedure that can effectively address all of these signs of aging. Facelifts can help to restore a youthful appearance by tightening and lifting the skin, removing excess fat, and reshaping the tissue for a better facial profile. At Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery, we perform hundreds of facelift procedures each year and are nationally recognized for our innovative surgical techniques and natural results when it comes to facial rejuvenation. If you desire a more youthful facial appearance, our Reston plastic surgeons can help you achieve your goals.
A Fresh Face
With a facelift Reston patients can improve the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat and loose skin, tightening muscles, and re-positioning the skin of their face and neck. Although it can't stop the aging process, a facelift can make you look younger and fresher, and it may enhance your self-confidence. Other procedures done in conjunction may include a brow lift, eyelid surgery, neck lift surgery, laser skin resurfacing, fat grafting, or nose reshaping.
A Youthful Allure
If you're looking to rejuvenate your appearance and target multiple signs of aging at once, a facelift may be a great option for you. This procedure can help with sagging skin, deep wrinkles, double chin, excess fat, and more. In addition to providing a more youthful and tighter look to your face and neck, facelifts can also address concerns about excess skin and reshape the jawline. By tightening the neck and facial muscles and removing excess skin, you can achieve a smoother and more refreshed look.
Facelift procedures offer the advantage of being combined with other cosmetic treatments like brow lifts or eyelid surgery to address multiple concerns with consistent results. The incisions made during the procedure are strategically placed to be invisible, hiding any visible signs of surgery. Modern facelift techniques provide natural and rejuvenating results without the overly tightened or artificial look of older procedures. Although there is no specific age requirement for a facelift, it's commonly performed on individuals aged 50-65. Nonetheless, anyone with sagging skin or wrinkles can be a candidate, and the procedure can be customized to meet the patient's goals with minimal invasiveness. After a facelift Reston patients can expect to maintain their natural appearance with a more youthful and refreshed look.

Enhance Your Natural Beauty
At our cosmetic surgery clinic, we offer a range of facelift procedures tailored to meet the diverse needs and aesthetic goals of our patients. Each facelift technique targets specific areas of the face and addresses different signs of aging. Here are the types of facelifts we offer:
A mini facelift addresses mild to moderate signs of aging in the lower face and neck. It involves smaller incisions around the ears or hairline to lift and tighten facial tissues, targeting specific concerns like sagging jowls and nasolabial folds.
Unlike a traditional facelift, it's best suited for younger patients or those with less severe aging. Benefits include shorter recovery time, reduced scarring, and lower risk. However, it may not be as comprehensive as a full facelift and may not be suitable for patients with significant skin laxity or advanced signs of aging
The SMAS (Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System) facelift is a popular technique that involves lifting and tightening the underlying facial muscles and tissues. This approach provides comprehensive rejuvenation of the lower face, jowls, and neck, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
The deep plane facelift is a more advanced technique that involves repositioning the deeper layers of facial muscles and tissues. This method allows for greater correction of sagging skin and provides long-lasting results.
The mid-face lift targets the middle region of the face, including the cheeks and under-eye area. By lifting and repositioning the sagging tissues in this area, a mid-face lift can restore volume and rejuvenate the mid-face, improving facial harmony.
This specialized technique focuses on the lower eyelid and mid-face region. It addresses issues such as under-eye bags, hollows, and mid-face sagging, providing a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
The S lift is a mini facelift procedure designed to improve the appearance of the lower face and neck. It involves smaller incisions and a less invasive approach, making it suitable for patients with mild to moderate signs of aging.
We also offer complementary procedures to enhance the results, such as Facetite. Facetite is a minimally invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin and stimulate collagen production, resulting in further skin tightening and contouring.
We provide facial fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, as an option for patients seeking to restore lost volume in specific areas of the face. This procedure involves transferring fat from one part of the body to the face, improving facial contours, and rejuvenating the overall appearance.
The utilization of stem cells may be incorporated into certain facelift procedures. Stem cells can aid in the healing process and enhance tissue regeneration, potentially leading to improved outcomes and faster recovery.
During your consultation, our award-winning plastic surgeons will assess your unique facial features, discuss your goals, and recommend the most suitable facelift technique or combination of procedures to help you achieve the desired results.
Transform Your Look. Transform Your Life.
The results of a facelift procedure become more apparent within two to four weeks, with ongoing subtle healing for up to one year. Swelling and bruising are expected after the surgery, peaking around two days post-procedure. After ten to 14 days, there may still be some light bruising, tightness, and swelling, but individuals can resume light activities like walking.
By the four-week mark, the final facelift results should be noticeable, although some bruising and swelling may still be present, primarily perceptible only to the patient. Numbness and stiffness may persist but typically do not affect daily activities. Scars may take up to a year to fade, and tightness and numbness may continue but should not interfere with regular tasks. Various factors can influence the rate of facelift recovery, including age, overall health, and the specific facelift procedure performed. Lifestyle choices such as smoking, excessive sun exposure, increased alcohol consumption, and stress can negatively impact the recovery process and final results.
Adhering to post-operative instructions provided by the surgeon is crucial to ensure a smooth recovery and achieve optimal outcomes. It is important not to rush the recovery process, as doing so can have adverse effects and compromise the results of the facelift procedure. When your recovery is completed, you will notice numerous changes to your face that will reduce your visible age by around a decade or more. Wrinkles will appear less pronounced or vanish entirely. Sagging skin and jowls around the face and neck will disappear. You’ll still look like yourself — but a younger version of yourself.
The best candidates for facelift surgery:
While a facelift cannot stop the natural aging process, it can effectively turn back the clock and provide long-lasting results. The benefits of a facelift can typically be enjoyed for many years. However, it's important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and protect your skin from sun damage to prolong the longevity of your results.
At Austin-Weston, we understand that investing in your appearance is an important decision. We offer various financing options to help make your facelift procedure more affordable for your budget.
