A Facelift is a surgical procedure that can address and correct facial issues associated with aging. As we get older, gravity and collagen breakdown contribute to sagging skin, the formation of wrinkles and creases, and loss of elasticity. This combined effect can create a visage that makes a person look older and more fatigued than their actual age. Dr. Dillon customizes each patient’s Facelift procedure to produce beautiful, natural results. Whether you would like to look more awake or just enjoy firmer, tighter skin, Dr. Dillon can assist in making choices that are right for you.
What is a Facelift?
A Facelift is a surgical procedure that allows Dr. Dillon to tighten facial skin, which corrects the appearance of sagging jawlines, droopy eyelids, and loss of elasticity.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Good candidates for a Facelift will be in excellent health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of this surgery. Candidates will be non-smokers who do not take blood-thinning medications. The best candidates are individuals with significant loss of facial elasticity, which appears as sagging skin around the eyes, cheeks, and jawline.
What Should I Expect From the Procedure?
During the procedure, Dr. Dillon will make incisions behind the ears and/or around the scalp region. These incision scars will be hidden by the hairline. Dr. Dillon accesses the facial tissue via the incisions and pulls them taut, resulting in a tighter appearance. Excessive skin will be trimmed and removed before the incisions are closed.
What’s the Recovery Like?
Immediately after the procedure, patients can expect to experience swelling and bruising. The face will be loosely bandaged to help the swelling go down. Pain medication will be provided for the first couple of days after surgery. Most patients are able to return to work within two weeks after the Facelift procedure. Dr. Dillon and his staff can walk you through proper aftercare during your Facelift consultation.
