Restoring a More Youthful Appearance
What is commonly known as a facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed to address the results of aging in the face. It removes facial wrinkles, sagging skin, fatty deposits, and other visible signs of aging. Some common reasons for a facelift are to help resolve:
Drs. Feledy and Maiorino, your board-certified plastic surgeons, will explain all of your options thoroughly during your consultation. If you are looking for the best facelift Washington DC has available, contact Belmont Plastic Surgery for more information and to schedule a consultation.
Love Your Look
Optimal results from a facelift can create a change in your appearance, which may cause you to look more than ten years younger, leading to an improved quality of life and self-confidence. It is not uncommon for a facelift to be combined with facial fat grafting, brow lift and eyelid surgery. These can be performed simultaneously for even better results. If you want to improve your appearance and boost your self-confidence, it is worth considering undergoing cosmetic surgery. Washington DC face lift experts, Dr. Jules Feledy and Dr. Eric Maiorino, have combined more than 20 years of experience performing facelift surgery.
Look Up To Ten Years Younger
People of all ages benefit from facelifts. However, most candidates for facelift surgery are between 40 and 60 years old with good skin elasticity. Whether you have sagging skin due to weight loss or if you’re concerned about gravity, a facelift can help restore your youthful appearance. If you're considering this procedure, you should be healthy, a non-smoker, and not taking any blood thinning medications. Notify Belmont Plastic Surgery if you have high blood pressure, blood-clotting issues, or tend to form excessive scars. It is also important to have realistic expectations for the outcome of your procedure.
"Coming to see Dr. Feledy for a facelift changed my life. I think I look ten years younger. The care and explanations he gave me about the procedure were so thorough. It was truly a life-changing experience.”
If you have thought about getting a facelift, we recommend you come in for a consultation with Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino in our Washington DC area office or Northern Virginia office located in Stafford. You can expect your initial consultation to take at least an hour. During your consultation, the doctor will:
The caring staff of Belmont Plastic Surgery will make sure that any questions you have about insurance and financing are answered completely. Dr. Feledy and Dr. Maiorino will also be able to provide you with before and after photographs of his patients so you can look at his earlier facelift work and see for yourself what to expect if he performs a surgery. It is important that you and the doctor agree on the cosmetic details of your surgery in order to obtain the facelift results that you want.
A Fearless Experience
Receiving a facelift surgery can take several hours and usually requires a general anesthetic. The surgery is performed as an out-patient or same-day surgery in which you will go home once the operation is complete and you have recovered from the anesthesia. For most facelift procedures, an incision in front of the ear is made and extends to the hairline. After separating the skin from the underlying tissues, the underlying tissue is elevated/tightened and the excess skin carefully trimmed. The remaining skin is then sutured together. A small drain is often placed to prevent the accumulation of fluid underneath the skin.
The Right Plan for After Surgery
After your facelift, you will be provided with detailed instructions on how to care for yourself during recovery. Your recovery will likely take between 10-14 days, although some patients need up to three weeks. During this time, you will need to get plenty of rest and limit your activity. Swelling, numbness, tenderness, and a feeling of tightness are common but will subside over time. Patients should avoid strenuous activity for six weeks and exposure to the sun for several months.
A Younger You
Facelift surgery cannot fundamentally change your appearance and will not stop the forces of aging or gravity. The result you want will be discussed with Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino in your consultation before receiving the procedure. Incisions are strategically placed so that any scarring that may occur will not normally be visible.

When your regular lotions and serums, or perhaps even nonsurgical treatment alternatives, no longer seem to be working, it may be time to consider a facelift procedure. A facelift is the sole therapeutic option for drooping skin that pulls away from the face and neck or hangs freely. This excess skin is removed during the facelift operation, resulting in a firm, young appearance.
Most people who have had facelifts say that it was not particularly painful. However, there is always some discomfort, especially during recovery and immediately following surgery. After being completely numb for about an hour after surgery, many patients describe feeling some soreness or tightness around their ears, cheeks, and neck—which feels similar to having a stiff neck. This usually subsides in about two days.
All surgeries carry some risk of complications that can be minimized by a qualified surgeon. The risks associated with facelift surgery include injury to the facial nerves, infection, bleeding, and excessive scarring. All efforts are taken to ensure any risks are mitigated. Be sure to ask your doctor about these risks during your consultation.
A face lift is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance. Our patient care coordinators will help you navigate payment and credit options so that you can be on your way to a new, rejuvenated you!
