A facelift is meant to tighten the skin at the face AND the underlying soft tissue structures of the face to get a more rejuvenated, youthful appearance. They are very effective, with more tightening and longer lasting results that non-surgical treatments such as laser resurfacing, chemical peel, dermabrasion, dermal fillers, or Botox.

Remember, a facelift should make you appear more rejuvenated, but the hands of time continue to tick! A facelift will NOT permanently stop aging. You should follow my post-surgery instructions after your facelift, along with excellent skin care afterwards, to get the longest lasting results. Skin care should include avoidance of the sun, use of sun screen, use of prescription grade skin care products, and possibly even “touch up” procedures to maintain the most youthful appearance.
