Facelift

Contact us

As we age the skin on our face can thin and begin to sag and droop. The facial skin becomes aged, with unwanted wrinkles, creases, lines, and appears droopy and older – often far older than one feels. The condition of your facial skin is impacted by genetic factors, age, sun damage, smoking, gravity, and stress. A facelift procedure can tighten the skin on the face and restore a defined, youthful jawline for a more pleasing, attractive look – but it must be done right, and by our highly qualified Utah plastic surgeon.

Dr. Rose in Provo, Utah is experienced with facelift procedures and can help you restore a more youthful facial appearance, that appears natural rather than tight and pulled.

Is a Facelift Right for Me?

You may be a good candidate for a facelift if you:

  • Have sagging skin on cheeks, jaw, and neck
  • Have excess fat or skin on the neck
  • Your cheeks have sagged, leaving you with a jowly look
  • Have deep creases around the mouth or under the eyes.
  • You feel self-conscious as your face appears tired, older, or saggy

Facelifts are common among women in their forties or older who are looking to smooth out wrinkles on their face and want to ward off the aging process. Dr. Rose has impressive artistic abilities in creating a beautiful, natural look, and can help you achieve a younger-looking face without having that “worked on” appearance.

Facelift Procedure

A facelift involves the following steps:

Anesthesia

You will be put under general anesthesia.

Incisions

There are three types of incisions based on the type of facelift, the degree the skin has aged, and your desired results. A traditional facelift involves an incision that begins near the temples in the hairline, continues around the ear, and ends near the lower scalp. The underlying muscles near the jowls and neck are pulled tight and secured, and excess skin is trimmed. A limited incision facelift uses a shorter incision that begins lower in the hairline and continues around the bottom of the ear. This type of facelift is appropriate for those who don’t have as much sagging in the facial skin. The last type is a neck lift and the incision begins near the ear lobe and continues behind the ear to the hairline and under the chin. This type of lift is used for those whose main concern is sagging skin in the neck and jawline.

Closing the incisions

Once your muscles and skin are pulled tight, your incisions will be closed. The incisions are placed so that your hair and the natural curves of your face easily hide them.

A facelift is sometimes performed with other procedures such as a brow lift or skin resurfacing procedure. You may decide to have more than one procedure based on the facial rejuvenation you envision for yourself, and Dr. Rose will help you evaluate the appropriate treatments. Once your facelift is complete you will be given aftercare instructions and prescriptions for pain medication and antibiotics to take during the recovery.

Risks & Recovery

Any pain from the incisions is easily managed with the pain medication prescribed by our plastic surgeon. Though the healing time will vary based on the complexity of your surgery among other factors, most patients can resume their normal routines in about two weeks. Your doctor will schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure the healing process is proceeding as it should, and will let you know when you can return to more vigorous activities.

PRACTICE POLICY UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update April 1st, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until April 25th.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until April 25th.
  • The office will be fully staffed, and we will see our urgent post-surgical follow-ups.
  • We are instituting Virtual Consultations for all potential patients.
  • Many surgeries are rescheduled and some of the ones that are committed will occur on a per case basis.

No patient will ever have any financial recourse for rescheduling their procedures.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • The staff has been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • Any exit and entrance from our office are followed by a protocol of changing shoes, scrubs and sanitization.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although COVID-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
