One of the most common aesthetic enhancement procedures available is also one of the most effective: the facelift. Facelift surgery addresses a number of issues one may have with how they look, including deep folds, wrinkles, and other signs of aging and exhaustion.

A traditional facelift typically begins with incisions made at the temples, above the hairline. The incisions will extend to the front of the ear, or inside the front-ear cartilage going to the back of the earlobe. Typically, any scarring from a traditional facelift is well-hidden under the hairline. Our plastic surgeons will separate facial skin and fat from underlying muscles, and then tighten the muscles. The excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is tightened for a smoother, less-wrinkled appearance. The incisions are closed, and the procedure is then complete.

Most facelift surgeries take about two to three hours to perform, depending on the extent of the procedure. Facelift surgery can be performed on an outpatient basis.
