Give Your Look a Lift

For those seeking a younger, more vibrant look, facelift surgery offers a highly effective method of reducing telltale signs of aging. Sun damage, stress, and pollutants all have a profound affect on the skin. In time, these elements show themselves in the form of wrinkles and other types of skin damage that can make a person appear older than they are. Facelift surgery, performed at the Plano TX office of plastic surgeon Alfred Antonetti, is an excellent option for those seeking a solution to “crow’s feet” at the corners of the eyes, a sagging jaw line, and other telling affects of skin damage or age.

Candidates for Facelift Surgery

Aging can cause your facial skin to wrinkle and droop, making you look sad or angry even when you are not. This is unfortunate, because your face communicates so much about you to others and its appearance can influence how you feel about yourself. If you are bothered by lines, sagging skin around your jaw line, droopy cheeks, or deep creases that extend from your nose to your mouth, you may be a good candidate for this procedure.

The Facelift Procedure

This surgery involves removing excess skin, tightening underlying muscle and tissue, and removing fatty deposits in the face and neck. The facial skin is then smoothed and pulled more tightly and the incisions are stitched. Most scars can be hidden within the hairline.

A facelift is often combined with other procedures to give you the best possible results. For example, it might be combined with rhinoplasty (nose reshaping), eyelid surgery, a forehead lift, or skin treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic. The best way to determine which procedures are right for you is to talk to Dr. Antonetti about your specific case.

Facelift Surgery Recovery

Patients who undergo facelift surgery should expect some skin discoloration, swelling, and numbness for about two weeks. During this time, it is important to allow sufficient recovery time. Dr. Antonetti and the staff at his Dallas practice will provide extensive information regarding your facelift surgical recovery. Immediately after the procedure, loose bandages will be placed and a drainage tube may be inserted behind the ear in order to prevent fluid from collecting. After the procedure, most patients can return to work and other activities in about 10 days to two weeks. During your recovery, the professionals at our office will be there to answer any questions you may have.
