With advancements in technology and surgical techniques, the facelift has come a long way from its roots. Once it only tightened skin to create a windswept appearance, the facelift can now produce naturally beautiful results without seeming overdone. Dr. Adam Stein is Raleigh’s premier facial plastic surgeon, and he’s improved the lives of thousands of patients with his artistry and expert skill.
How Does a Facelift Work?
A facelift improves the appearance of aging skin by removing excess fat, muscle, and skin. The procedure tightens the muscles and skin in your neck and face to lift sagging tissue caused by gravity. The incisions are well-hidden in the hairline and behind the ears. The muscles and fatty tissues that have shifted are anchored into a more youthful position with sutures. Finally, your skin is tightened, and the excess is removed as the incisions are closed.
A facelift is often combined with other procedures such as an eyelid lift or a brow lift to ensure your youthful appearance is balanced over your whole face. You’ll look younger for longer with a facelift at Stein Plastic Surgery.
How Long Will My Facelift Results Last?
A facelift is an excellent way to boost your self-confidence with dramatic results that will last for 10 years or even longer in some cases!
Dr. Stein has a rare talent for rejuvenating the appearance of his patients while maintaining their natural character while still achieving youthful, flattering results. With over 20 years of experience and award-winning credentials, we can restore your confidence and transform your appearance, so you’re young and refreshed for many years to come.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?
The answer to that question depends largely on your age and skin condition. However, if you are concerned about facial wrinkles or drooping skin around your mouth or eyes, it’s worth consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon of Dr. Stein’s caliber before making any decisions. The best candidates are those in good general health who have realistic expectations about what a facelift can do for them.
What is Facelift Surgery Like?
Your facelift will be performed in the Stein Plastic Surgery state-of-the-art accredited surgical suite on an outpatient basis. Dr. Stein has perfected his techniques to minimize visible scarring with discrete incisions that are barely noticeable. The recovery period for this procedure is faster than ever, so you’ll be able to resume normal activities in as little time as a week. Adding complementary procedures for a more complete facial rejuvenation does not extend the length of your recovery period.
