Facelifts at Image Surgical Arts
Facelifts are a popular cosmetic procedure among those who wish to restore a more youthful appearance. The physical effects of aging, sun exposure, gravity, and stress can mask your natural beauty and steal your youthful appearance. At Image Surgical Arts of Nashville, we offer several types of surgical and non-surgical facelifts that can be customized to fit your individual needs and ultimate goals.
These procedures are not just for women. In fact, facelifts are a very common surgical procedure for men of all ages. Whether you’re unhappy with your facial appearance due to genetics, changes in weight, or because of the natural aging process, facelifts can help. There are several types of facelift procedures designed to address your individual cosmetic concerns. Most patients opt to add additional procedures at the same time such as upper and/or lower eyelid lifts, fat transfer to the face, or laser skin resurfacing. At our state-of-the-art surgical center and medical spa, we incorporate advanced technology into our facelifts for improved long-lasting results.
Facelift Procedure Details
Surgical facelifts are performed as an outpatient procedure in our own surgical facility. Well-hidden incisions are made along the hairline and around the ear allowing Dr. Harris to remove excess skin, remove unwanted fat deposits, and tighten underlying muscles.
Dr. Harris always combines liposuction of the neck and jowl to improve results. Additional procedures for full facial rejuvenation may be recommended such as tightening the neck muscles that cause neck bands, an upper or lower eye lift, fat transfer for volume addition, and laser skin resurfacing. A full facial rejuvenation may take anywhere from 3-4 hours.
Facelift Recovery + Results
As anesthesia wears off and for several days after your surgery, pain medication may be necessary, although most patients need very little. You can decide, along with Dr. Harris, what type of medication will be best for you. Pain-levels steadily decline about 2-3 days post-surgery. Recovery time typically takes about 2 weeks. During that time, you'll need to take it easy and let your body rest to promote healing. Enlist some help and be sure to have everything you need right at hand.
Results from your facelift will be evident immediately following your procedure. As swelling begins to dissipate, you’ll see continued improvement. The majority of swelling should be gone about 2-weeks post-op, however, final results may not be apparent until 3 months after your facelift. You’ll benefit from a dramatically more youthful look that can take 10, or even 15 years off your facial appearance. Facelifts are designed to be a long-lasting procedure.
