Facelift in Weston, Florida

Aging can take many forms, and some of the most prominent signs of aging are found in the face. As we age, our skin produces less collagen and elastin and becomes thin, leading to lines and wrinkles. As the facial tissues lose elasticity and fat volume, the face begins to sag.

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a popular facial rejuvenation procedure designed to lift and smooth your facial tissues. Drooping skin is corrected and wrinkles are reduced to erase years from your appearance and enhance your facial contours.

Am I a Good Candidate for Facelift Surgery?

Facelift candidates may experience one or more of the following issues:
  • Sagging and relaxation of the facial skin
  • Deepening of fold lines around the nose and mouth
  • Drooping cheeks
  • Jowls along the cheeks and jawline
  • Loss or displacement of fat in the face

What Should I Do Before My Facelift Surgery?

To support an effective procedure and recovery, it is important to take some time to prepare for your procedure.

In the time leading up to your procedure, you may be asked to:

  • Undergo a medical evaluation
  • Take or adjust certain medications
  • Apply skin treatments or products
  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid taking drugs that can increase bleeding

Maintaining your nutritional and physical health both before and after the procedure can help to enhance and maintain your results.

How Much Does a Facelift Cost?

Achieving natural, beautiful facelift results requires the skill and dedication of your surgeon, and the cost of your facelift may reflect this.

The cost of each procedure is decided on a patient-by-patient basis because many factors can affect the price. Surgical fees, facility fees, anesthesia fees, and location can all impact the final price of your procedure.

What Are the Different Types of Facelifts?

Traditional Facelift Featured Model

Traditional Facelift

The traditional facelift focuses on improving signs of aging in the lower two thirds of the face, from the cheeks to the jawline and the neck.

Incisions are made in the hairline that extend from the temples down along the natural curvature of the ear in front to the earlobe and then along the crease behind the ear. The underlying muscles are adjusted through the incisions, and fat may be redistributed to restore fullness.

Skin is redraped to highlight the new facial contours, and excess skin is removed. The lifting and repositioning of the skin, muscle, and fat is performed in two layers.

Mini Facelift Featured Model

Mini Facelift

The mini facelift focuses on improving signs of aging around the mouth, in the cheeks, and along the jawline.

Limited incisions are made in front of the ear to the earlobe. The skin and muscles are adjusted, and the skin is redraped similar to the traditional facelift.

While the mini facelift addresses the deep tissue layers to provide long-lasting correction, it doesn’t address sagging in the neck. For this reason, patients with pronounced jowls and loose neck skin may not be ideal candidates for the mini facelift.
