What Is a Facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure that treats cosmetic concerns around the face and neck. By removing excess skin and tightening targeted areas, a facelift delivers a rejuvenated appearance that treats multiple signs of aging. Dr. Brown personalizes each facelift procedure for his patients in Tampa, working closely with them to develop an individualized procedure that addresses their unique needs.

For a typical facelift procedure, patients receive anesthesia to remain completely comfortable from start to finish. Dr. Brown then makes targeted incisions according to your unique treatment plan. Excess skin is removed, and the tissues are carefully adjusted and tightened to provide a new lively, natural look. The incisions are then closed and Dr. Brown ensures that every step was completed to his satisfaction.

Is a Facelift Right for Me?

A facelift is ideal for patients who experience mild to severe sagging around the lower face and the neck area. If you want to address signs of aging in other parts of the face, we provide several other options that are ideal for combining with a facelift. Two popular options to combine with a facelift include a neck lift and a brow lift. When performed together, these procedures can create a stunningly refreshed look that maintains a natural aesthetic.

For patients who have minor to mild concerns for the lower face or neck, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Brown, provides a range of non-surgical cosmetic treatments. These non-invasive treatments can deliver impressive results and rejuvenation without the commitment of a surgical procedure.

During your consultation with Dr. Brown, you can discuss your goals to see if a facelift is right for you. Based on your expectations and needs, Dr. Brown then builds a personalized plan with the ideal procedures for you. The ideal facelift candidate at SynergyMD will be:

  • In overall good health (to promote better healing and better results)
  • Avoid smoking before and after the procedure (smoking interferes with healing and worsens your results)
  • Have healthy expectations about what a facelift can do

What Is the Recovery Like?

In most cases, you should be able to return home from SynergyMD the same day as your facelift procedure. However, you will need someone to drive you home. Most patients start by taking about two weeks off from work, giving their body the rest they need to heal efficiently. Patients can expect some swelling, discomfort, and sensitivity around the facial area. But this can be managed with medication and soon will go away as you heal.

Patients need to avoid strenuous activity during the first few weeks after surgery. However, you can gradually return to your daily physical routine once you have approval from Dr. Brown after post-op visits. If you have any questions after your facelift, Dr. Brown and the staff at SynergyMD are here to provide any answers and information.

When Can I See Results?

While a facelift provides impressive results, it is important to first heal fully. As your swelling goes down, you should begin to see your final results appearing. However, a significant improvement in wrinkles and loose skin should be apparent quite early on. As your body continues to heal, your completely rejuvenated appearance will be looking back at you in the mirror.

Once you see your facelift results, they will last for a long time. However, it will be important to continue caring for your skin to hold off additional signs of aging. Healthy skincare habits include avoiding direct exposure to sunlight or other sources of damage for your skin.
