Facelift surgery is an excellent way to rejuvenate your appearance and look years younger. As we age, it’s natural for our skin to lose elasticity, and wrinkles and fine lines appear. With a facelift, the team at Emmett Plastic Surgery can help you restore your youthful looks and give you renewed confidence. Dr. Emmett will remove excess skin and tighten the underlying tissues and muscles during the procedure. The result is a fresher, firmer facial appearance. If you’re considering a facelift in Denver, CO, contact us today – we’re here to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
The Benefits of Getting a Facelift
This popular procedure offers a range of benefits, including smoother, firmer skin, a more youthful appearance, and improved self-esteem. In addition to these cosmetic benefits, a facelift can improve functionality by reducing vision obstruction caused by sagging skin. The most common benefits of a facelift include:
- Tightening and redefinition of the neck.
- Elimination of sagging skin and “turkey neck.”
- Elimination of jowls and enhancement of the jawline.
- Reduction of wrinkles, creases, and fine lines.
- A tighter, more youthful appearance to your skin.
- Natural-looking results that allow you to feel confident in your appearance.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?
During your initial consultation, Dr. Emmett will verify your candidacy for a facelift while presenting multiple treatment options for you to consider.
A Facelift is Great If:
- You are in good health overall.
- You wish to reduce the most visible signs of facial aging.
- You are concerned with sagging skin and jowling.
- You want to remove excess skin that is obscuring your vision.
What Is the Best Age for a Facelift?
In most cases, a facelift works best for people in their 40s, 50s, and 60s when signs of aging become prevalent.
Before and After Photos
Taking the First Steps
The first step in your facelift journey is meeting with Dr. Emmett for a one-on-one consultation. During this appointment, you can share your aesthetic goals, discuss the parts of your face you want to improve, and ask questions about the process. Dr. Emmett will take your medical history, ensure you are a viable candidate for a safe procedure, and discuss the available treatment options.
Meet Our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Jennifer Emmett is well-known throughout the Denver, CO, area for her clinical skill as well as her approachable, down-to-earth manner. Board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Emmett is well-qualified to provide high standards of care, always promoting patient safety, comfort, and outcomes. Dr. Emmett is particularly well-known for her skill in achieving natural-looking breast augmentation, resulting in an incredibly high level of patient satisfaction.
The Procedure Process Explained
Your facelift will begin with administering a local anesthesia called Lidocaine, which ensures your comfort and safety and promotes a smooth recovery. Dr. Emmett will make incisions around the ears or behind the hairline, minimizing visible scarring. She is one of the only plastic surgeons in Colorado to offer a deep plane facelift, which allows for more profound and substantial results than the typical lateral tuck.
Recovery and Aftercare
Following your facelift, you can expect some swelling and bruising for the first week or so, with most patients having a clear sense of their final results within two weeks. While you can expect some physical discomfort, both prescription and over-the-counter medications are available to alleviate symptoms. We will also provide recommendations for Retin-A® and medical-grade skincare products, essential for maintaining your facelift results for as long as possible.
Should I Also Get a Neck Lift?
If your concerns are primarily related to sagging skin around your neck, you may wish to get a neck lift only or combine a neck lift with a facelift. Dr. Emmett will provide different options for you to consider during your consultation.
Facelift or Fat Transfer: Which is Right for Me?
Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, is another popular aesthetic procedure that has proven to be very effective at enhancing the results of a facelift and restoring volume to specific facial areas. Dr. Emmett can explain different treatment options at your consultation.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Typically, facelift results last for around 10 years. While your face and skin will continue to age, you will continue looking about 10 years younger than you are. You can maintain the results of your facelift by using medical-grade skincare products, consistently applying sunscreen, and considering follow-up treatments with BOTOX® and dermal fillers.
