Deep Plane Facelift

One of the most advanced facelift options available, Dr. Gilpin is a leading expert in deep plane facelifts. The deep plane facelift lifts and rejuvenates the face’s deepest tissues to reverse aging at every level.

Mini Facelift

The mini facelift uses small incisions to smooth skin and reverse early signs of aging. With a mini facelift and our best non-surgical treatments, Dr. Gilpin can help you put off the need for a more substantial facelift altogether.

Deep Neck Lift

The neck lift addresses one of the first areas where aging signs can begin to show – the neck, jawline, and chin. By getting rid of sagging skin and fat, the neck lift can redefine the jawline and facial profile, taking years off your appearance.

MADE Facelift

The MADE facelift is a unique procedure that combines the deeply rejuvenating results of the deep plane facelift with the short incision of the mini facelift. It lifts and rejuvenates the fat pads in the midface to combat the aging effects of volume loss and gravity.

What is a Facelift?

A facelift is one of the most comprehensive ways to reverse aging and restore a more youthful version of yourself. It works by lifting the tissues of the face into their natural upright position while also getting rid of stretched, excess skin. When most people think of the facelift, they think of a single type of procedure – when, in reality, today’s facelift is a multifaceted category that contains many different options. No two facelifts are alike, especially in the hands of Nashville’s premier facelift expert.

Who is a Candidate?

If you’re bothered by the appearance of your face and feel like it no longer reflects your most vibrant and confident self, the facelift is a great option. There’s no single age at which it becomes appropriate to have a facelift – everyone ages differently, and your facelift can be tailored to your unique needs. We recommend meeting with our double-board-certified facial plastic surgeon to learn more.

Facelift Pre-Op Recommendations

Preparation is key when it comes to getting great results from your facelift. In the weeks and months leading up to your facelift, make sure to focus on eating a variety of nutrients like protein, healthy fats, and fiber. Incorporate regular exercise into your routine, but avoid anything too strenuous that could cause injury. If you smoke, stop and avoid using nicotine. Take some time to plan for your recovery, as well, by gathering materials, taking time off, and enlisting assistance around the house. Finally, our team will give you a detailed checklist to follow with steps like bloodwork, pre-surgical appointments, and signing forms.

An additional important step is practicing good skincare. Make sure to cleanse and moisturize your skin daily, wearing sunscreen to protect against aging. Our expert team can recommend a pre-surgical regimen based on your needs.

Results and Recovery

Recovery will depend on the details of your unique type of facelift. For example, a mini facelift will require less downtime than a deep plane facelift. You can expect swelling and discomfort, returning to social activities within two to three weeks. Dr. Gilpin will give you detailed aftercare instructions on how to manage your recovery, a signature process developed over decades of experience. As always, our team is here to support you throughout your cosmetic journey and help you maximize your results.
