Putting Your Best Face Forward

Typically, your face is the one of the first places to show signs of aging. This is one reason why a facelift – also known as a rhytidectomy – is among the most common types of cosmetic surgeries. A facelift restores a more youthful appearance to the face and neck by tightening and repositioning tissues within those areas.

Facelifts can:

* Smooth deep lines and creases on the face

* Reduce sagging skin on the face

* Restore youthful volume to the face

* Correct hallowing of the cheeks

* Remove or lessen bands in the neck area

* Improve underlying muscle tone and the formation of jowls

Patients have also achieved great results by pairing the facelift procedure with a brow lift or eyelid surgery to completely satisfy their youthful desires. Facelifts don’t have the power to stop the hands of time nor the aging process, but the procedure can take years off of your face. If you want to learn more about the procedure, click here.

Concerned? Maybe our frequently asked questions can help you!

Am I a candidate for a facelift?

You may be a candidate for a facelift if you are a healthy, non-smoker who is bothered by changes to your facial muscle tone or skin. To find out more about facelifts and whether this procedure could be right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Bridgett Moore by calling our office at 229-259-0019.

What should I expect during a facelift procedure?

Your surgery will either be performed under IV sedation or general anesthesia. Your surgeon will form an incision along the crease where your ear meets your face. Depending on the extent of your procedure, your incision may also extend upward or downward along the hairline. Your surgeon will thin sculpt and redistribute fat within the face, neck and along the jowl. Excess skin will be trimmed away, and the underlying muscles and tissues will be lifted to form a more youthful appearance.

Will I need to follow any special post-operative instructions after my facelift?

Facelift recovery takes several weeks, during which time it is normal to experience soreness and swelling. Be sure to take all prescribed medications as instructed by your surgeon and follow up with your doctor within a few weeks to ensure that healing is progressing normally.
