What is a facelift?

This aesthetic medical procedure corrects the visible signs of aging by tightening loose or sagging skin. During the procedure, Dr. Varkarakis will reposition facial tissue and fat, tighten underlying facial muscles, and remove excess skin to create the most natural-looking result. Each facelift procedure is customized to each specific patient to fit their needs and treatment goals. Patients are fully sedated throughout the entire procedure, so no discomfort is experienced.

How long does the procedure take?

Most facelifts take between two and a half to three and a half hours. The length of the procedure can vary from patient to patient depending on the extent of work being done.

How long is the recovery period?

Patients are typically able to return to their homes immediately following a facelift procedure. We generally recommend patients take at least 10 to 14 days off before returning to work. Stitches are typically removed within a week of the procedure. Patients may experience some swelling and bruising for up to two to three weeks following a facelift procedure. Patients may also experience some numbness in the cheek and neck areas following a facelift procedure, this is normal and feeling generally returns approximately one to two months after the surgery.

How long will the results last?

The results of a facelift can last for ten years or longer. Results may vary from patient to patient depending on general health and lifestyle.
