Our first priority is to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Our face plays an important part in how we are perceived socially, and everybody wants to put their best face forward. With age, your skin experiences several undesirable changes brought on by sun exposure, stress, gravity, and other environmental factors. If you feel that you always appear old or tired because of these changes, you should consider a facelift procedure.


A facelift is a cosmetic procedure that offers your face a rejuvenated and youthful appearance. The facelift procedure is medically known as rhytidectomy and it is highly beneficial in improving various signs of aging that appear with time on your face and neck area. A facelift can help eliminate fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, double chin, and loss of volume around the eyes.

Dr. Gilpin does not believe in changing your entire face but rather gives you stunning results by subtly enhancing your natural facial features. Our aim with each facelift procedure is to produce natural-looking and long-lasting results that complement your individual facial anatomy. We use the most advanced surgical techniques so that you get your desired results and not the ‘pulled’ appearance you may get with an inexperienced surgeon. The facelift is a highly customizable procedure that is tailormade to suit your unique needs so that you feel confident in your appearance once again.

There is no ideal age for a facelift since no two people age in the same way. If you notice visible changes to your facial skin that are beginning to affect your self-confidence, you may want to consider getting a facelift. Ideal candidates are people who cannot get the skin they want through ever-expensive skin care products. Just like any other surgical procedure, you must be in good health and be a nonsmoker. Usually, patients who walk in with these concerns make for the best candidates for the facelift procedure:

  • Sagging and loose skin on the neck and face area
  • Wrinkles on your face that make you appear as though you are always sad, tired, or angry
  • If you have begun to look older than your years
  • When lifting the sides of your face gives you an improved look from the loose skin
  • Your neck and face area has fine lines and wrinkles

Some people can benefit from additional procedures performed at the same time as the facelift. If you have sagging skin in the forehead, eyes, or the surrounding areas, you may benefit from a brow lift or eyelid lift in addition to a facelift. These are all complementary procedures that can help you turn back the clock on your appearance.

What is the facelift procedure like?

The facelift is a highly customizable procedure and Dr. Gilpin uses different techniques that vary from each other to give you the best results. Here are your options for a facelift at Gilpin Plastic Surgery:

  • Deep plane facelift – it addresses the sagging and wrinkles present in the lower part of your face, neck, and jowls. During the procedure, the SMAS is also lifted and tightened to give you natural-appearing results that last longer.
  • Limited incision facelift – this is a less invasive procedure that is best suited to offer subtle improvements in the lower face region. A few short incisions will be used that offer a shorter recovery.
  • Necklift – a double chin with sagging skin on the neck will benefit from the neck lift which gives you a youthful rejuvenation.
  • Facelift with laser resurfacing – Dr. Gilpin offers comprehensive rejuvenation with a combination of laser resurfacing during your facelift. This addresses the finer aging signs on your face such as sunspots, redness, and wrinkles around your eyes and mouth.

What results can you expect?

Most patients will see their final results a month or two after their facelift. Since your skin continues to age, the results from your facelift cannot be permanent. However, Dr. Gilpin has the skills to take away about 10 years from your facial appearance. When you maintain a healthy lifestyle, you will be able to retain your results for a long time. In the future, we also recommend non-invasive injectables like fillers and Botox to touch up your results.
