If you are seeking a younger, more youthful appearance and are bothered by any skin folds, creases, wrinkles, or sagging facial features, a facelift is a relatively quick way to reduce the effects of aging. By making an incision in your temple area that typically goes around your ear and along your hairline, one of our Orange County surgeons will lift your skin in order to remove excess fat and tighten the underlying muscles on your face.
Can I benefit from a facelift?
To find out if you are a good candidate for a facelift, schedule a time to talk with one of our Orange County surgeons about your unique situation. The doctor will be able to help you determine if a facelift will help you achieve the look you want. In general, you might be a fit for a facelift if any of the following apply to you:
- You have a sagging neck, cheeks, or jowls
- You have wrinkles that make you feel self-conscious
What can I expect after the procedure?
After your procedure, you’ll likely experience discomfort, swelling, and bruising for about two weeks. During this time, you should avoid any strenuous activity but can return to normal, everyday activities almost right away. Your Orange County surgeon will help you in determining which pain medication will be most effective. Be sure to wear sunscreen daily in order to make your youthful appearance last longer.
