faceliftWith the holidays fast approaching, are you looking for a way to restore your youthful glow before greeting friends and family this season? A facelift can take up to 10 years off your appearance just in time for the festivities. Dr. Robinson offers a number of facelift options at Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery, ensuring your procedure is tailored to your specific needs and aesthetic goals.

Benefits of a Facelift
A facelift is a surgical procedure that offers a wealth of anti-aging benefits. Some of those advantages might include:

• Fewer fine lines and facial creases
• Smoother, firmer skin
• A more youthful facial profile
• Restored definition to cheeks and jawline
• Refreshed, rejuvenated appearance overall

Some patients choose to combine their facelift with a brow lift or a neck lift to further enhance results. Dr. Robinson will discuss your specific concerns with you at your initial consultation to determine if a facelift will help you meet your goals or if another procedure combined with the facelift might achieve optimal results.

Facelift Options
At Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery, you have a few options in facelift procedures:

  • Classic Facelift
    This procedure focuses primarily on the lower face and neck, removing jowls around the jawline and producing a more defined transition between the neck and face. Incisions are placed inside the hairline and in the natural skin creases around the ears to minimize visible scarring afterward. This procedure tends to involve a slightly longer recovery period than other facelift procedures, but the results also tend to last longer.
  • Endoscopic Mid-Facelift
    This surgery concentrates more on the middle of the face, adding definition to the cheekbones and eliminating skin sagging in the area that can create a hollow, aged appearance. The procedure is performed endoscopically, which means it requires smaller incisions and special tools that create a less invasive procedure overall. Less invasive techniques mean less discomfort and a shorter recovery period after your surgery.
  • Liquid Facelift
    For patients that don’t have as many years they want to shave away, a liquid facelift may be an effective option. This procedure is non-surgical and uses a combination of injectable treatments to smooth away facial creases and restore youthful volume to areas like the cheeks and along the jawline. The procedure only takes a few minutes to complete and does not involve any downtime afterward. However, the results are only temporary, which means the injections will need to be repeated regularly to maintain your positive results.

Is a Facelift Right for You?
A surgical facelift is generally recommended for men and women that want to significantly turn back the clock on their appearance. The procedure is used to address more than simple wrinkles, it is primarily done to firm up loose skin and restore youthful definition to the facial profile. Dr. Robinson can help you determine whether a surgical facelift is the right choice for you, or if you will benefit more from a different surgical or non-surgical treatment.

Ready for the Holidays
A facelift typically takes a week or two of recovery time after the procedure. Once you return to work and other activities, you may still see some residual bruising and swelling that could linger for a few weeks more. Since it takes some time to see the full results of your procedure, you will want to schedule your surgery as soon as possible in order to see positive results in time for Christmas and New Year’s.
