A facelift can enhance the face, neckline, and jawline to create a much younger appearance.
Imagine feeling more confident in social and professional situations and much happier when you look in the mirror and see the many signs of aging, gravity, stress, and sun exposure diminished.
Dr. Kobienia in Minneapolis, MN, can give you a refreshed look through facial plastic surgery. Please contact us online or call 612-930-1111 to schedule a personal consultation to discuss your facial plastic surgery options.
Dr. Kobienia can refresh your aged, tired appearance by tightening your facial skin. Facelift surgery can take years off of your appearance by addressing:
Loss of Facial Contours
Double Chin/Turkey Neck
Deep Nose and Jowl Lines
Dr. Kobienia conceals all facelift scars behind the ears, within wrinkles and within the hairline. The goal of the procedure is to create a naturally refreshed look, avoiding the overly tight or “windswept” look of an obvious facelift.
In most cases, patients are able to return to their everyday routines within 2 to 3 weeks of their facelift surgery.
A facelift is an investment in your outward appearance and self confidence. In addition to the facelift surgery cost itself, fees that your procedure can incur may include anesthesia, operating room costs, and pre-surgical tests and prescriptions. The base surgical cost, which includes a surgeon’s fees, can vary based on the surgeon’s experience, the type of facelift performed, and your geographical location.
How do I find the best plastic surgeon for a facelift near me?
When choosing a plastic surgeon near you, you want to take many different things into consideration. Is the surgeon board-certified? Do they regularly perform facelifts? Do they have before and after photos that showcase individuals with similar concerns as you, and did they provide the results you are looking for? When meeting with a facelift surgeon, it is a good idea to come prepared with questions and see how the surgeon responds and answers your concerns. In addition to experience, you want a surgeon that you feel comfortable with and that you believe is putting your best interests first.
Are there any possible risks associated with a facelift?
Facelifts are a relatively safe procedure, however, as with all surgical intervention, there are potential risks. Some potential risks associated with a facelift can include:
Nerve injury or facial weakness
Am I a good candidate for a facelift?
Anyone considering a facelift should be in good general health with no underlying medical conditions that could impair healing, be a non-smoker or quitting before the procedure, and have a realistic expectation of what the procedure can accomplish. Ideal candidates will have facial concerns that can be addressed by a facelift procedure, such as sagging skin and muscles from the cheeks to the jawline, loose skin on the neck, jowls, volume loss on the cheeks, and/or wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
Does facelift surgery and recovery hurt?
During your facelift procedure, you will be under general anesthesia and will not feel any pain or discomfort. Upon waking up, you may begin to feel some discomfort that may become more painful as the day progresses. You can expect facial pain and discomfort for two to fours days after your procedure, however, this can be managed by pain medications. You may also experience trouble opening your mouth for the first few days and experience itching or shooting pain around your incision areas as the numbness wears off and it begins to heal.
Will I have noticeable scars after my facelift?
Facelift incisions typically follow your hairline or natural creases within your facial contours. While they may be more noticeable immediately after your procedure and during your initial recovery, the scars will soften over time and become less and less noticeable.
How long does facelift recovery take?
In most cases, you can expect your facelift recovery to take at least two to weeks before you can return to normal daily activities. At this time, you may still experience some residual swelling and facial tightness and, in some cases, you can continue to experience mild swelling, tightness, and numbness to continue for up to a year after your procedure.
