What is a Facelift?

Are you ever face to face with a mirror and wondering if you could look more youthful? A facelift restores youthful contours from the upper cheek, through the middle portion of your face to the neck and jawline. A facelift restores the shape of your face and lifts the sagging areas back to where they belong. The procedure can alleviate jowls and smooth out the hanging skin around your neck. A facelift reduces the appearance of your facial wrinkles and other telltale signs of aging and improves the overall appearance of your face and neck.

How Much Does a Facelift Cost?

Every patient has unique facelift needs, and as a result, your costs will vary. We accept all forms of payment, including credit cards and checks, and also offer convenient financing options.

Why Choose a Facelift?

Aging and the sagging effects of gravity can fill you with the desire to return to a more youthful appearance. A facelift is the most comprehensive approach to treating facial wrinkles and sagging skin caused by aging. Remove unwanted wrinkles by tightening the skin of your face. You may look years younger but still like yourself with a facelift.

Who is a Candidate for a Facelift?

If you’re unhappy with your aging, you may look years younger with a facelift. A facelift removes excess facial skin and tightens the underlying structures of your face to make the face appear younger and more vibrant.

What is the Procedure for a Facelift?

More extensive than a mini facelift, the facelift can take up to five hours and is performed under general anesthesia. The incisions are typically hidden around your ears, After the incisions, the underlying facial structures are repositioned, tightened, and sutured back into their original place. The deeper layers of the neck area are also repositioned to reduce jowls. Your extra skin is then trimmed and is skillfully sutured by Dr. Dawli to give your face a smoother but naturally youthful looking facial contour.

Frequently Asked Questions

Really, there is no perfect age to get a facelift. At Buffalo Plastic Surgery, we’ve seen patients as young as their late thirties and as mature as their late seventies consider a facelift. That being said, we most commonly see patients between 45 and 65 undergo a facelift procedure. If you are interested in rejuvenating your appearance and believe a facelift is right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Dawli today.
While it may seem obvious to sleep on your back following your facelift, it is important to remember to elevate your head at a 45-degree angle for the first two to four weeks following your procedure. Propping your head up with a stack of pillows helps you prevent any excess swelling or general discomfort. Elevating your head also helps promote the body’s natural healing processes.
Preparing for your facelift is similar to preparing for any other surgical procedure. Before your surgery, we advise you to discontinue the use of any blood-thinning medications and supplements, avoid smoking and the consumption of alcohol and adjust any prescription medications accordingly. It’s best you talk to Dr. Dawli about any prescriptions you may be taking during your one-on-one consultation to ensure you have an easy recovery period following surgery.
A liquid facelift is a minimally invasive, non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment that mimics the effects of a facelift without the use of scalpels, cutting or anesthesia. The liquid facelift gets its name for the strategic use of dermal fillers and injectables that help to take years off of your appearance for a naturally youthful-looking appearance.
A mid-facelift, also known as a cheek lift, addresses sagging or hollowed cheeks. By elevating the fat pad in the cheek, Dr. Dawli can provide fullness to the eyes and mid-face for a natural-looking, refreshed appearance. The mid-facelift is a great addition to a traditional facelift, which typically addresses signs of aging in the lower two-thirds of the face. Talk to Dr. Dawli during your consultation to see if a mid-face lift is right for you.
