Are you noticing wrinkles, lines, creases, and sagging skin on your face? If you want to turn back the hands of time, a facelift performed by Dr. Jennifer Emmett at Emmett Plastic Surgery in Lone Tree may be a solution. Dr. Emmett is board-certified by the American Board of Surgery. The surgical procedure lifts and tightens facial skin to restore a smooth, firm, youthful appearance. This procedure is popular among residents of Centennial and the Greater Denver area who seek a rejuvenated appearance.
A “facelift” or “face lift” is the popular term for a rhytidectomy, a plastic surgery procedure that tightens loose, sagging skin in the face, resulting in a taut and smooth facial contour and a younger-looking appearance. A facelift is the most comprehensive treatment available to eliminate facial wrinkles, creases, folds and sagging skin caused by aging. The facelift is popular among men and women and may sometimes be performed in combination with blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery, or another specialized cosmetic procedure. In some cases, injectable fillers may also be used to complete the makeover.
The primary benefit of the facelift is the improvement of your overall facial appearance, and the resulting boost it gives to your confidence and self-esteem. By eliminating wrinkles, creases, folds, lines, and sagging skin, the facelift literally takes years off your appearance and leaves your face radiant, smooth and firm. A facelift can transform and rejuvenate your appearance, making you feel more confident and attractive. The results of facelift surgery may last for up to 10 years.
The best candidates for a facelift are people who have begun to notice visible signs of aging and are concerned with the formation of wrinkles, lines, folds, creases and sagging skin. Before undergoing a facelift, Dr. Emmett and her team of specialized medical professionals will ask some key questions regarding your medical history during your consultation to make sure that you are in general good health and to determine whether a facelift may be right for you.
Facelift surgery generally takes three to four hours to perform and requires incisions along the hairline and natural skin creases. During the procedure, the skin, muscles, and fat of the face and neck are lifted, trimmed, and sculpted to create a natural-looking, taut, youthful contour.
Most patients require about a week to recover from the facelift surgery, and total healing usually takes one month. You may experience mild side effects such as tenderness, discomfort, bruising, redness, and temporary skin numbness, but these will resolve shortly. The results of a facelift are permanent, however, your face will continue to age naturally. For most patients, the results of the facelift procedure last for about 10 years.
The cost of a facelift will vary considerably from patient to patient due to the variety of surgical techniques used during this procedure and the personalized combination of procedures that is required.
