A facelift (technically known as rhytidectomy) can’t stop this aging process. What it can do is “set back the clock,” improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of your face and neck.
- Addressing drooping eyelids and bags under the eyes can provide a younger, more alert look to truly "turn back the clock".
- The results can be truly amazing, and Dr. Ditesheim shows you very natural results, in every sense of the word.
- Facelift procedures can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or a rhinoplasty.
What is the recovery after a facelift?
All sutures and/or staples will be removed within 5 to 10 days. While recovery usually takes a few weeks, it may take a few months for the swelling to subside and to fully see the complete results of your facelift. We have established a "no surprises, predictable recovery process."
What does a facelift cost?
Total costs including professional anesthesia care (MD), credentialed, accredited surgical facility (OR and Recovery) and surgical fees (all professional care) for a facelift will range from: $7000-$10,000. Many patients express a desire for a more contoured appearance in the eyes and forehead, and thus, also inquire about an eye lift.
How do I know if a facelift is right for me?
You may be a candidate for a facelift (rhytidectomy) if you have experienced a loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone of the face and neck. A facelift may also be desirable if you have the appearance of jowls and deep creases between the base of the nose and the corners of the mouth, or developed facial and neck wrinkles.
