What is a Facelift?

Aging means a reduction in skin elasticity along with a loss of collagen and fat volume. The result is a sagging and hollowed facial appearance. Have you noticed the contours of your face have grown dull while jowls and vertical neck bands are increasingly visible? You may have also noticed an excess of loose skin around the neck. Facelift surgery in Dana Point can address and correct all of these issues to return some of that youthful vigor to your face and neck.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR FACELIFT SURGERY?

Patients who are contemplating facelift surgery as a way to revitalize their appearance must first decide if they are a good candidate for the procedure. Dr. Ardesh only accepts patients under the following conditions:

  • The patient is in good overall health.
  • The patient has facial skin that exhibits flexibility and elasticity.
  • The patient continues to display aesthetically balanced underlying bone structure.
  • The patient desires a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.

Patients who meet this criteria may be a good facelift surgery candidate in Dana Point.

What Results Can I Expect with a Facelift?

A facelift procedure involves tightening of the skin and soft tissues from the cheekbones to the clavicle (collar bone) to improve the cheeks, jowl line, and neck. However, a cheek lift or neck lift can be performed separately if only one area needs treatment.

The patient will have a choice of general anesthesia or conscious sedation while the surgery is performed. The operation could take two to five hours depending on the extent of the work that needs to be done.

Incisions are custom-fit to the patient and situated in a manner as to be easily and completely concealed in the natural creases found behind and in front of the ears.

During the procedure, the skin and connective tissues are lifted up and re-positioned across the underlying bone structure to refresh the patient's appearance. Once the surgery is completed, any excess skin and tissue are cut away and the incisions sealed with absorbable sutures.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING RECOVERY AFTER DANA POINT FACELIFT SURGERY?

The incisions that were made during surgery will be fully dressed to keep down swelling and encourage healing. Patients may still notice some light swelling and bruising in those areas, this is normal. In order to help speed the recovery process along, Dr. Ardesh recommends sleeping with the head elevated.

After one to three days, Dr. Ardesh will remove the dressing and check the incisions. Patients can expect to return to work in about 10 to 14 days.
