Facelift Q & A

Elevation

What is a face-lift?

There are many ways to address the visible signs of aging, including BotoxⓇ, dermal fillers, and laser skin resurfacing. A face-lift gives you the ability to achieve results that go deeper than these efforts, yielding more noticeable improvements.

This surgical procedure alters the shape of your face, restoring a more youthful, rested appearance. Face-lifts can improve the following conditions:

  • Sagging skin
  • Deep facial folds
  • Displaced fat deposits
  • Loose skin on your face and neck
  • Jowls in your cheeks and jaw

Each face-lift is a unique procedure, tailored to your specific needs and treatment goals. That’s why it’s so important to seek the services of a highly skilled and experienced surgeon for your cosmetic surgery. Dr. Griner focused a significant portion of his training on facial reconstruction techniques and is uniquely qualified to perform face-lift procedures.

 

Will a face-lift create an unnatural, stretched look?

Many people associate a face-lift with an overly tight, unnatural appearance. Face-lift techniques and technology have vastly improved over the years, and today’s procedures offer astounding results.

You won’t emerge looking as though your skin has simply been stretched and tightened across your features. Successful face-lift techniques are as much of an art as a science and require a specialist who can look at your face and determine exactly where changes can be made to yield natural, beautiful results.

 

What happens during a face-lift?

The surgical process begins with general anesthesia to ensure you rest comfortably from start to finish. Next, Dr. Griner makes the initial incision to gain access to the tissues within your face. Most incisions are at the hairline, around the ears, and at the lower scalp. This approach allows the scars to blend with your hairline and remain hidden from view.

The next steps depend on your particular needs. Dr. Griner can redistribute fat to alter the contours of your face. The small muscles in your face can be lifted, and your skin is then redraped over the new contours.

Once Dr. Griner is pleased with the results, he closes the incisions using sutures or a special type of medical glue. You’ll wake up from the anesthesia and begin the recovery process.

 

What is recovery like after a face-lift?

Your recovery process will depend in part on your overall health and how closely you adhere to Dr. Griner’s postoperative instructions. Immediately after the procedure, your face is bandaged to reduce swelling and bruising.

You’ll receive medication to manage pain, and instructions on how to care for the treatment area as recovery progresses. You’ll return to Elevation Plastic Surgery & Med Spa for a follow-up appointment to ensure the healing process is moving forward properly.

Today’s face-lift procedures are far more advanced than in years past. You might be surprised at how swift and easy the recovery process can be.
