1) What is a facelift?
A facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that addresses the problem of aging in the face. It is most commonly performed to remove facial wrinkles, sagging skin, fatty deposits and other visible signs of aging. Some common reasons for a facelift are:
- Sagging jowls
- Excess skin in the lower face
- Folds of skin on the neck
- Loose underlying tissues on the lower face
2) Why you may want a facelift:
Optimal results from a facelift can create a change in your appearance that can wipe more than ten years off your face. You will not only look younger but also feel more confident. It all leads to an improved quality of life. A facelift is often combined with brow lift and eyelid surgery and performed simultaneously for even better results. Dr. Feledy has more than 20 years of experience performing facelift surgery Northern VA area patients routinely praise.
3) Are you a good candidate for a facelift?
Most candidates for facelift surgery are between the ages of 40 and 60 with good skin elasticity. If you're considering this procedure, you should be a healthy non-smoker, not have high blood pressure, blood-clotting issues or form excessive scars.
4) Is the facelift surgery safe and are there any side effects?
Yes, a facelift is safe. Naturally, there are some risk of complications such as injury to the facial nerves, infection, bleeding, and excessive scarring. Dr. Feledy and his staff take every precaution to ensure your safety.
5) What happens during the facelift surgery?
Plan a few hours to have the facelift surgery. Expect general anesthetic to be administered. In some cases, a short inpatient stay may be necessary. Dr. Feledy makes an incision in front of the ear and extending it to the hairline. After separating the skin from the underlying tissues, he removes and reshapes excess skin and tissue. Finally, the remaining skin is sutured together.
6) What happens after the surgery?
Your recovery will likely take between 10 to 14 days. Some patients need up to three weeks. It depends on the individual. During your recovery time, make sure you get plenty of rest and limit your activities. Expect to potentially feel some swelling, numbness, and tenderness, which are all common. They all subside with time. No strenuous activities for six weeks. No exposure to the sun for several months.
7) What results can I expect from a facelift?
Facelift surgery cannot fundamentally change your appearance and it will not stop the forces of aging and gravity. Dr. Feledy will talk to you about what your options are and what you can expect after a successful surgery. Incisions are strategically placed so that any scarring that may occur will not normally be visible.
