Facelift

As you age, your face begins to show the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and the joys and stresses of daily life. Nasolabial folds start to form in the area between the nose and mouth. The jaw line begins to sag, jowls form, and folds and fatty deposits in the neck may contribute to the appearance of a double chin. As our facelift patients from Salt Lake City, Provo, and Orem, know, the surgery cannot stop this aging process. But what we can do is “set back the clock,” improving the most visible signs of aging in the mid to lower face and neck. A face lift can be performed alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, neck lift, or rhinoplasty near Salt Lake City.

About the Procedure

When Dr. Rose performs face lift surgery at his Utah practice, he removes excess fat, tightens underlying muscles, and re-drapes the skin and tissue of the mid and lower face. This can improve the appearance of:

  • Sagging facial skin
  • Marionette lines and jowls
  • Loose neck skin

This outpatient procedure is most often performed on men and women over 40 who want to bring back a more youthful look to the face and neck. The procedure may take several hours, depending on the extent of the face lift, and is performed using general anesthesia. For individuals with fat deposits in the neck area, liposuction near Salt Lake City may also be suggested to help improve the appearance of jowls.

Recovery from face lift involves temporary bruising, swelling, numbness and tenderness of the skin, and most people will need to take 10 to 14 days off of work and strenuous activities. After 2 or 3 weeks, bruising and swelling should subside, and you may begin to show off your enhanced, more youthful looking face.

Testimonials

First and foremost I would like to express my sincerest appreciation and thanks to Dr. Rose. As I've come to realize from the many nurses, physical therapist and other staff at the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center, we were very fortunate to have had Dr. Rose be the attending surgeon for wife's injury. As I understand now, he is one of the country's best in this field of expertise. Everyone that we've spoken with about him has had nothing but praise about his medical talents and ability. We feel very fortunate to have had Dr. Rose to do her surgery. By the way, I had my first opportunity to see the surgical incision and his work today when my wife was at her physical therapy appointment. His suture work could probably qualify him to be a seamstress for Armani Clothes! Wow! Nice Work!

Please let Dr. Rose know of our great appreciation and admiration for him.J
