Overview

The human face often shows signs of aging more readily than other parts of the body. The effects of sun, gravity, muscle relaxation, and tone reduction contribute to an aged appearance. A facelift is a widely popular procedure that women and men choose to mitigate the effects of aging and achieve lasting, youthful looking results. At Beautiful Faces in Plano, TX, double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho, uses modern facelift techniques to allow the procedure to be completed in a relatively short time on an outpatient basis. As a result, patients are able to resume normal activities without extended downtime.

A facelift by Dr. Ho will consist of:

  • Sedation and local anesthesia
  • Strategically placed incisions around the ears for optimal healing
  • Excess fatty tissue being removed
  • Deep underlying tissue and remaining loose skin being pulled up and back in a more youthful position

Ideal Candidates

The best candidates for facelift surgery:

  • Have aged skin with lines, wrinkles, and saggy skin
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Desire a long-term solution
  • Desire a natural look

What to Expect

Facelift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure at an accredited surgical facility where the patient is under general anesthesia. With carefully-placed incisions behind the ear and around the hairline, extraneous tissue, skin, and fat are removed from the face. The underlying tissue and muscles are tightened to provide long-term effects from the procedure. Sagging skin is repositioned where it is re-draped tighter for a smooth, natural appearance. Facelift surgery typically takes around 4 hours to complete.

Anticipated Results

After a facelift, a dressing will be placed over the surgical site and it will be replaced during the initial follow-up visit. It’s normal to experience pain and discomfort, which can be alleviated with medication prescribed by the surgeon. There should also be an expectation of swelling and bruising up to 2 weeks after surgery. After about 2 weeks, most patients can resume normal activities like going back to work and working out. After about 3 weeks, patients are able to notice the dramatic and natural results of the surgery. While facelifts offer long-term solutions, just like any other surgery, the effects are not permanent since the face will naturally age. However, a patient will still look younger compared to if he or she had never had the surgery.
