Gain the Confidence that Comes Along with Looking and Feeling Your Best.

How Do I Know if I Need a Facelift?

Beneath the surface of your skin are networks of tissue, collagen, and elastin that work together to support the weight of fat and muscle. As we age, the skin and this support network loses elasticity and does not hold or snap back into place as it once did. The overall loss of tone can be subtle at first and appear as minor wrinkles, loss of volume in the cheeks or heaviness along the jowls or chin. As time progresses sagging skin and deep wrinkles can appear. If you notice any of these issues and wish you could regain a more youthful appearance, a facelift may be right for you.

What Does a Facelift Do?

Some of the most common complaints that women have about their facial appearance as they age include:

  • Loose skin on the face and jawline
  • Fat deposits along your jaw, known as jowls
  • Hanging Neck Skin (Turkey Neck)
  • Double chin
  • Hollow or sunken cheeks
  • Deep creases and facial folds throughout your face

A facelift corrects these concerns by removing excess skin plus supporting facial features by lifting and tightening the layers of tissue beneath the skin surface. In any case, the layers of skin, tissue, and fascia are lifted, and fat may be redistributed to enhance the natural contours of the face.

Can I use Botox and Fillers Instead of a Facelift?

Botox and Fillers are wonderful products to prevent active wrinkles and restore or add volume, respectively. However, these products do not address skin laxity and the resulting hanging skin, changing facial features and deep wrinkles. Often, attempts to address these more severe concerns with Botox and Fillers results in an unnatural or overfilled look.

What is the Best Age for a Facelift?

There is no exact “best age” for a facelift and much of this is determined by genetics, life factors, and personal goals. However, a facelift will always have superior results and longevity when done before significant skin and tissue laxity has occurred. For this reason, there is a trend now towards earlier facelifts because they can be less invasive, have outstanding results and are thought to be somewhat preventative of larger more extensive surgery later in life. Today, undergoing a facelift procedure in the early to mid 50’s is quite common. In our practice we perform facelifts on women ranging from their 40’s to their 80’s.

How Will I Look After a Facelift?

When considering a facelift, a common concern many people have is whether or not they will come out looking like themselves after surgery. Or will they be left with the telltale “wind swept” facelift look.

Our goal is to perform a facelift procedure that does not dramatically alter your appearance. Instead, it should restore your natural, youthful look. Simply put, you should look like you- but from 15-20 years ago.

A good facelift procedure will eliminate excess skin and give a youthful lift by restoring native tone and contour.

How Is a Facelift Performed?

A small, well-hidden incision along the ear crease is made to allow lifting and tightening of the face. A neck lift is performed at the same time as part of the facelift procedure to ensure that the tone and texture of the neck matches that of the face. A facelift surgery is done on an outpatient basis, under mild general anesthesia and takes approximately four-hours. Typically, the results of a facelift will be evident immediately and especially noticeable once any initial swelling resolves. With proper care and rest, you can typically resume normal social face-to-face interactions after the second week.

Can other female face surgery procedures be done at the same time?

A facelift can be done alone or in conjunction with other female plastic surgery and facial rejuvenation procedures such as an eyelid lift, upper lip lift, browlift, laser and skin resurfacing.

Anyone considering facial, laser, skin, or augmentation services realizes it can be discouraging trying to find the right surgeon or facility. We research endlessly, only to stay just as confused as when we started. We then rely on word of mouth, pictures, or reviews. In my opinion Dr. Beck and the Sculpt Aesthetic staff are highly competent and you will be very pleased with your experience and results as I have been. Feel free to keep searching the internet endlessly, or take my word for it. Whether you are a man or a woman, you will be more than pleased with your results.

From my initial phone call with Marisa making my appointment to accommodate my schedule and going over some details to the time I was handed off to Lindsey explaining the quote and going into more detail about what I was interested in, these women are all TOP notch professionals and have a very kind and caring spirit. Linnea is amazing and you can tell she loves what she does. She listens to what your concerns are and then makes suggestions based on what you are trying to accomplish but by no means does she try to push something on you if you are not comfortable with moving forward. I can honestly say that I have been extremely happy with the entire staff at Sculpt and would highly recommend this office to anyone that wants a one on one experience to where you don't feel like you are just another number. WAY TO GO TO THE TEAM AT definitely have what it takes to make your patients feel very cared for which is very rare.
