What is the facelift procedure?
The facelift procedure helps with the lifting and tightening of the tissue in your midface region with the use of different techniques and incisions. Other procedures such as a brow lift or Botox can be combined with a facelift which gives you an overall refreshed appearance.
Who makes a good candidate for the facelift?
We understand that every patient ages differently. When the signs of aging become bothersome, you can choose to undergo a facelift. You must be in good physical and emotional health while still having a certain amount of skin elasticity to get the desired results. You should also be a non-smoker to ensure good healing. When you discuss your specific issues and aesthetic goals with us, we will be able to determine the best technique for your facelift.
What will be your surgery like?
The facelift procedure offered at Shaddix Plastic surgery is a highly customizable procedure offering different kinds of incisions and techniques. This depends on your expected results, and it helps us choose how extensive your procedure will be. The traditional facelift procedure gives you substantial correction with a lift to the underlying tissue and muscle as well. Your incision will start at the hairline and go around your ears and into the nape of the neck allowing Dr. Shaddix to lift the SMAS or superficial musculoaponeurotic system.
Our patients who are struggling with mild aging signs and who are in their 40s will benefit more from the mini facelift. This will target only the lower area of your face and give you the required subtle enhancement. The incision will be short going around your ears and allowing Dr. Shaddix to improve the jawline and cheeks.
Your facelift surgery is performed under general anesthesia and Dr. Shaddix manipulates the underlying fat and muscle to give you improved contours. He will then redrape your skin over the tightened muscles before excising any excessive skin.
How will your recovery be?
All our patients have a different recovery experience but most return to their normal routine within 2 to 3 weeks. There might be bruising, swelling, and some discomfort or pain during this time. It is essential that you keep yourself protected from sun exposure. Dr. Shaddix will recommend medication to alleviate any pain and you should avoid any strenuous activities for the next 2 weeks. It is important to follow all aftercare instructions carefully so that you can heal well. Soon you will enjoy a youthful and rejuvenated facial appearance with natural and long-lasting results.
