What is a face lift procedure?
A face lift or Rhytidectomy removes excess fat and skin, tightens the underlying muscles, repairs skin elasticity and re-drapes the skin of the face and neck, thereby restoring natural highlights and the contours of a more youthful face and neck. Sometimes to further enhance your results, other procedures are performed along with facelift surgery, such as forehead lift, eyelid surgery or neck liposuction. You and your surgeon at Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery can determine together which path is the right one for you. Request a consultation today to get started.
Why consider a facelift?
As we age, our skin may wrinkle or sag due to stress, sun exposure, lifestyle choices or simple genetics. You may feel that your face looks tired or old and you’re unhappy with the way you look. A face life can be a great way to add the rejuvenation to your face that you’ve been looking for. Many people are choosing face lift procedures every day across the world, as well as here in central Ohio. If you’re considering face lift surgery, an in-depth analysis of your face and a discussion of your goals with your plastic surgeon is all that’s necessary to begin the process of looking and feeling younger. Call 614-420-2711 to find out how one of our surgeons can give you a more youthful appearance. If you have any questions about financing your face lift procedure, please visit our financing page.
What results should I expect from the Columbus facelift procedure?
The face lift is one of the most well-known cosmetic procedures for good reason. It’s one of the most rewarding plastic surgeries for both the patient and the physician in terms of its power to reverse the effects of aging on the face and restore the spirit of the individual. Full face lift surgery can have a dramatic impact on a person who feels they have lost their youthful glow. By repairing skin elasticity, removing excess fat and deep wrinkles, and tightening the underlying facial muscles, the skin of the face and neck is restored to reveal a more youthful person. For some people, a mini-facelift is all that’s needed to turn back the clock several years.
What about recovery?
Most face lifts are done as outpatient procedures in an office, outpatient surgery center or a hospital. They can be performed with sedation or under general anesthesia. Also, a prolonged recovery is not usually necessary with the new face lift techniques employed by the board-certified plastic surgeons at Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery (located in Columbus Ohio). Patients are sometimes able to obtain long-lasting results and return to work in just days.
