During a facelift procedure, underlying facial muscles are tightened and excess skin is removed to restore a natural, refreshed, and younger appearance. Sagging jowls are lifted, resulting in the improved contouring of the jawline. Facelift surgery can be done under local anesthesia alone, sedation, or general anesthesia depending on the needs and desires of individual patients. Depending on the extent of face lifting, recovery can last anywhere from 5-14 days.
Jowl correction and facelift surgery can be customized to fit your needs and overall goals. Facelifts can also be done in unison with additional cosmetic procedures to help you achieve dramatic, long-term results.
