A facelift, also called a rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgery that both lifts and tightens facial tissues that are otherwise causing wrinkles and sagging skin. A facelift can combat excessive skin, and smooth wrinkles or folds. It doesn’t usually include a brow or eye lift, although these procedures can be considered in addition to a standard facelift if you desire, or your doctor recommends.

A facelift generally focuses on the bottom two-thirds of the face, and occasionally the neck. During your facelift surgery, your doctor will rearrange fat and tissues beneath the skin to contour your face and give it the shape you are hoping to achieve.


The Mini-Facelift.

During a mini facelift, a thin, small incision is made around the ears to lift the skin to a higher position, which enhances the mouth, jawline, and jowls. This process creates subtle improvements that looks natural.

The Lower-Facelift.

This lift addresses the chin area and neck, and in many cases, the jowls. Nonsurgical methods, such as a Kybella injection, can also be used for chin reduction to attain a younger, tighter-looking neck.

The Non-Surgical Facelift.

There several Facelift options that do not require surgery, including FACEtite and Kybella. FACEtite uses radiofrequency energy to increase collagen production and dissolve unneeded fat cells. Kybella injections add volume and do away with wrinkles.

What You Need to Know about Every Facelift.

The Full-Facelift.

Considered the gold standard, the full facelift most often incorporates an incision close to the hairline, then extends down to the area near the temples, reaching the base of the ears. The underlying facial tissues and muscles are carefully pulled and safely tightened to produce a lifted outcome, which reduces excessive loose skin and droopy features. This facelift is reserved for individuals who have visible signs of advanced aging. With this lift, various treatments may be combined, including blepharoplasty to enhance the eyes or a neck lift for the lower region.

They're All FDA Approved.

The American Food and Drug Association has approved the use of these surgeries, devices (such as the FACEtite device), and cosmetic fillers (Botox, Kybella, Juvederm). Your board-certified doctor will be sure to only use the prescribed methods, volumes, and areas that have been approved to ensure your safety and satisfaction.  

Reasons That You Should Consider A Facelift.

A Facelift is for you if you are tired of purchasing creams, serums, and other products that have little to no impact on the youthful aesthetic of your skin. You may consider a Facelift if you are ready to rejuvinate your face and return to a wrinkle free, sagg-less demeanor. If you have lost volume, or have not been able to loose those jowls or double chins, despite all you best efforts, a Facelift is the answer for you. 

What To Expect From The Classic Facelift:

Preparing For A Facelift.

You are ready to rediscover their beautiful facial features and shape if  you are generally healthy with no pre-existing conditions that would affect your recovery from surgery or wound healing, you don’t smoke or misuse drugs, and you have a realistic expectation and understanding of what a facelift entails, and what your final outcome will likely be.

Side-Effects Of Facelifts.

The most common side effects from a Facelift are mild pain and discomfort, swelling, and redness. Throughout your recovery, your doctor will monitor your healing vigilantly, keeping an eye out for signs of infection or any other complications. 

Results After Facelifts.

Facelift clients generally experience a mild to moderate amount of swelling within the first two to three weeks. The final results of your facelift will be best seen about 3 months post-operation, and will progressively continue to improve for the next year.

FAQs about Facelifts.

As with all surgeries, Facelifts are safe when done by professionals in a proper environment. Make sure your doctor is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and that your Facelift will be taking place in a surgery or medical office. 

Absolutely! It may take a few weeks for all the swelling and discomfort to fully leave your face, and when they do, you will not be able to stop smiling when you see the amazing restoration that has taken place!

Most Facelift clients can expect to take the first two weeks off work post-operation. Your doctor will advise you specifically depending upon your situation; high levels of activity such as working out, heavy lifting, or other strenuous movements will be discouraged for up to three weeks. 

Yes, there is a mild to moderate amount of swelling to be expected up to three weeks after your Facelift. Your doctor will carefully monitor your healing and the amount of swelling to ensure all is normal. 

For some, results of a Facelift are evident the moment your surgery is completed; the results will peak from about 2 months after surgery after healing is totally finalized and your face has fully embraced it’s newly rejuvinated normal. 

Speak to your doctor during your initial consultation about how much your Facelift will cost; depending on what procedures recommended for you, there can be a range of pricing, so it is best to get a quote tailored to you and your situation.

"I can't say enough about doctor Vinyard and his great staff. I've had more than a few procedures done in his office and have had surgery done as well, both went great the staff are always very caring and concerned for my comfort. I'm always called after a procedure to find out how I'm feeling, if I'm in any discomfort. Which I can't say I get that type of treatment from any other doctors office. I absolutely recommend VIPS for all your beauty needs."

"Doctor Vinyard is amazing as well as his staff. From the moment I walked into the office I felt welcomed. Everyone was so nice and friendly. They listened to my concerns, which was more about me being nervous than the actual procedure. I had my procedure/surgery done on October 10th. I was up and moving around on the 11th without pain or discomfort. I just went back for my 1 week check up today and again it felt like walking into a friends home rather than a doctors office. Made me feel like I was their only patient. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Vinyard and his staff."

"Dr. Vinyard was recommended to me by my breast surgeon and I have been nothing but impressed with every step of the process, from my consultation to surgery to follow ups, he and his staff have been nothing but kind, caring and compassionate. A breast cancer diagnosis is scary and knowing that you can trust your surgeon to give you the best possible outcome eases some of the worry. I highly recommend Dr. Vinyard to anyone!"
