A classic facelift can offer very pleasing improvement for those who are looking to smooth their face and create a renewed appearance. Specifically, a facelift can target problem areas such as wrinkles, lax neck and jowls.
Each person has their own specific needs and target areas and the surgery will be customized to you. The classic facelift is done by making an incision around your ear, which then extends into your hairline. This is done so that incisions can be easily covered and will not be noticeable as they heal. Modern surgery allows for minimal scarring, in the great majority of patients.
Following the procedure, patients are able to return to regular activities within a few weeks. The amount of bruising a patient experiences varies but generally, after a few weeks a patient will have a good idea of the results that were achieved. Modern techniques including the use of fibrin sealant dramatically reduces bruising and allows patients to return to normal activities more quickly. Many show little or no bruising.
While a facelift is a longer procedure than others, it is highly effective and the best way to achieve optimal results.
