Take Years Off Your Appearance with Facelift Surgery
December 22, 2014 - By Dr. Jules Feledy
Whether you’re worried about droopy skin, sagging jowls, or skin folds around the neck, consider the benefits of Maryland Facelift surgery to freshen up your appearance. The facelift is one of the more aggressive cosmetic surgery procedures available to patients in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, and can be very effective for restoring youthful contours. If you are no longer getting the results you want with injectable fillers and skin tightening treatments, talk to Dr. Feledy about the benefits of getting a facelift.
Freshen Up Your Look for the New Year
Getting a facelift can completely transform your appearance and you can enjoy the results for years to come. If you’ve been thinking about making an investment in yourself for the new year, talk to Dr. Feledy about undergoing facelift surgery. A facelift can address several common concerns, including:
- Sagging jowls
- Skin folds around the neck
- Loose skin and tissues around the lower face
- Droopy skin around the cheeks and mouth
- Deep lines and furrows around the forehead and eyes
- Wrinkled or crepey skin
- Lax skin around the jawline and cheeks
If you have fairly good skin elasticity and a schedule that can accommodate a few weeks of recovery, you may be a good candidate for facelift surgery. We encourage patients to have realistic expectations about this procedure and take some time to educate themselves about how the procedure is performed and where the incision sites will be placed. We can go over all of these details during your consultation. We may also recommend a brow lift or eyelid surgery to complement your procedure.
What to Expect with Facelift Surgery
Facelift surgery typically takes several hours to complete and is performed under general anesthesia. You may need to accommodate for a short inpatient stay, depending on the extent of surgery. Dr. Feledy will make an incision in the front of the ear that extends all the way to the hairline, and then will carefully reshape excess skin and tissue. He can also manipulate the underlying muscles and skin tissues to create more attractive contours. The initial recovery process takes between 10 and 14 days but can last up to three weeks, depending on the patient.
