Whether you’re dealing with skin sagging, jowls, or deep facial creases, a facelift could be the solution to enhance your appearance and confidence. Discover more about the benefits of a facelift and decide if this cosmetic procedure is right for you.

What is a Facelift?

A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to give the face a more youthful appearance. This procedure reduces the visible signs of aging by removing excess facial skin, tightening your underlying tissues, and repositioning the skin on the face and neck. Facelifts can correct midface sagging, marionette lines, jowls, and a double chin. 

The Facelift Procedure

At Gilpin Facial Plastics, the facelift procedure is customized to meet the unique needs of each patient. We offer a variety of face and neck lifts including:

Facelift Consultation

The surgery begins with a consultation, during which Dr. Gilpin discusses your cosmetic goals and evaluates your skin’s condition and facial structure. During this, Dr. Gilpin will address any questions or concerns you may have and provide a detailed assessment of how a facelift can benefit you personally. You’ll receive personalized advice on preparing for the procedure and what to expect during recovery. 

Facelift Surgery

During the surgery, incisions are usually made along the hairline and around the ears where wrinkles naturally occur, allowing for any incisions to quickly disappear. The skin is carefully lifted, and the underlying connective tissue and muscles are tightened and restored to their natural position. Excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is repositioned. The procedure typically takes three to five hours to complete, depending on the extent of the surgery.

How a Facelift Can Benefit You

A facelift at Gilpin Facial Plastics is not just about looking younger, it is also about feeling better and giving you back your pep in your step. Patients often report enhanced self-confidence following their surgery. The procedure can also make you look more rested and alert. A facelift is beneficial for those in good health who want to reverse the effects of aging. 

Facelift Results

The results of a facelift at Gilpin Facial Plastics are long-lasting. Patients will notice an immediate difference in the tightness of their skin and the overall youthfulness of their face. As swelling and bruising subside over the first few weeks, the full results will become visible. We specialize in getting busy professionals back to work and back to their life quickly. We usually see patients out to dinner with friends within the first 14 to 21 days if not sooner. Although the aging process will continue, a facelift can make you look years younger than your actual age and maintain your younger look for many years. Proper skincare and a healthy lifestyle can help prolong the results of your facelift.
