Facelift at Young Medical Spa
As one of the most popular cosmetic facial contouring procedures available, a facelift can improve the way you look and feel. The aging process naturally causes the skin to become loose and sagging while forming fine lines and wrinkles for a less than youthful appearance. Facelifts at Young Medical Spa® are performed in-office by double board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Aaron Shapiro.
A facelift is performed under local anesthesia. An incision is made around the ear and below the chin, the skin is gently raised and repositioned, and the underlying muscle and connective tissue is tightened for a smoother, younger-looking facial appearance. Dr. Shapiro can combine liposuction with a facelift if necessary to remove excess fat while lifting and contouring the face for a more youthful look.
Frequently Asked Questions about Facelift at Young Medical Spa
How long do results last?
Results from a facelift can last ten years or more. Patients can maintain their results and increase the longevity of these results with a good skin care regimen that includes sunscreen and medical-grade skin care products. BOTOX®, Laser Skin Resurfacing, and other skin rejuvenation treatments can also help maintain the results of a facelift.
What is the recovery like?
Patients should take at least one week off from work and strenuous activity to allow the body to fully heal and recover. Mild to moderate swelling and bruising may be experienced in the lower face and neck during the first five to seven days following a facelift.
Are there alternatives to a surgical facelift?
While a facelift provides the best results for those with moderate to severe sagging skin on the face, non-surgical alternatives are available. These options include the Stem Cell Facelift, Y LIFT®, and PrecisionTx™.
Are there risks or complications with receiving a facelift?
There is always a risk of complications with any surgical procedure. Lifestyle habits such as smoking and hereditary traits can make some patients more susceptible to complications. Each patient’s medical history will be reviewed prior to the procedure and precautions will be taken to minimize the chance of complications.
