A facelift is among the most popular procedures we perform here at Miami Valley Plastic Surgeons, and for good reason. If you want to look younger, this is the one procedure that will give you the most bang for your buck, as a facelift shaves years off of your appearance and rejuvenates your skin. We proudly provide facelifts for patients in Dayton, Centerville, Beavercreek, Troy, Huber Heights, and other nearby cities in Ohio.
A facelift is a type of cosmetic surgery that eliminates a number of signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, laugh lines, and loose, flabby jowls. It can be performed on an outpatient basis using only local anesthesia to numb the area where incisions are made.
After undergoing a facelift, you will feel and look younger, and may also enjoy a renewed sense of confidence.
Anyone with noticeable signs of aging on the face can be a good candidate for a facelift. You should have a positive, optimistic outlook and reasonable expectations before undergoing this surgery as well.
Your surgeon will discuss the need for pre-operative blood work with you, and might also recommend you stop taking certain medications in the two-week period leading up to your appointment.
When you arrive to Miami Valley Plastic Surgeons, we will double check your medical history and take a series of vital signs. Next, your face will be cleansed by an aesthetician, making it easy for your physician to determine where to place incisions. The exact locations might also be marked with a magic marker, in which case you will have an idea beforehand how you might look.
This surgery is sometimes completed in as little as an hour, but in some cases could take as long as three hours.
You could experience some soreness, tenderness, and light bruising, all of which should go away within a week or so.
We make every effort to hide scars in inconspicuous places so that they cannot be seen.
You will notice fewer wrinkles and smoother skin right away. In just a few days, you will see the full results, at which time we think you will be thrilled with what you observe.
That will depend on how well you care for your skin afterwards. For best results, moisturize your skin frequently and apply sunblock whenever you are outdoors for any extended period.
A facelift often goes well with blepharoplasty surgery to firm the upper or lower eyelids.
Because you may have different needs than any other patient, we will not be able to discuss the exact cost with you until after your consultation. Cash, personal checks, and credit cards are always accepted for any of the procedures we offer, and many of our patients will also qualify for low-interest financing.
