Face Lift Procedure
One of the worst things about getting older is looking in the mirror and seeing a face that no longer reflects your lively or bubbly personality. Until we find the Fountain of Youth tucked away in a secret location, facelift surgery is the best option to reverse common signs of aging and revitalize a maturing face.
Many Miami facelift patients have achieved beautiful and natural-looking results at BOD Cosmetic Surgery & Spa. Our team is pleased to offer a range of surgical options to help men and women enhance their facial features and enjoy a more youthful look.
What Facelift Can Correct
The face is very susceptible to the harsh effects of aging, sun exposure, pollution, smoking and genetic factors. Over time, it’s common for the facial skin to lose elasticity, fat to displace and the muscles to lose their healthy tone.
Because of these developments, jowls can form, the cheeks may start to sag and the undereye area may look sallow or hollow. Wrinkles and lines can crop up around the face, including crow’s feet, smile lines (lines that extend from the outside corners of the nose to the mouth) and worry lines on the forehead.
Cheeks that were once full and healthy can start to lose their shape as the fat displaces and pools underneath the chin or jawline.
These signs of facial aging can cause you to look sad, angry or exhausted, even if you feel youthful and vivacious on the inside. However, under the care of the BOD cosmetic surgeons, you can reverse these unpleasant flaws with facelift surgery in Miami.
The BOD surgeons meet with every facelift candidate to discuss the surgery and determine whether it is a good option for the individual and his or her specific facial rejuvenation needs.
In general, facelift candidates are individuals who:
During your consultation, the BOD doctors will perform a physical examination of your face and neck. They will also ask you to identify what you’d like to improve about your facial appearance. Then, they will put together a facelift treatment plan that addresses your concerns.
The specific details of facelift surgery vary, depending on the techniques that our surgeons use and the goals of surgery. In general, facelift is performed on an outpatient basis, so you will be able to return home the same day. You will receive anesthesia medication prior to surgery to prevent you from feeling any pain during the procedure.
First, the surgeon will make an incision along the hairline and around the front of the ears and continuing into the lower area of the scalp. Through the incision, the surgeon will access the underlying facial structures. He will reposition fat pads, tighten the muscles and remove excess skin. Then, he will pull the skin more tightly over the face and secure it into place with sutures. When he’s finished, he will place surgical dressings.
We will provide comprehensive recovery instructions before you leave the surgery center, and our team is always available via phone or email to answer any questions.
After facelift surgery, you may have swelling, bruising and soreness. These side effects are temporary and will subside over time. You will need to get plenty of rest and avoid any strenuous activities during your initial recovery.
The BOD surgeons will follow up with you after surgery and clear you to go back to your regular routine when you’ve sufficiently healed. They can also prescribe pain medication to ease any discomfort you experience.
Though everyone heals at a different pace, most Miami facelift patients return to work about two to three weeks after surgery.
