With facelift surgery, Dr. Nicholas Sieveking can take years off your facial appearance with results that look both natural and beautiful. One of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures in America, facelift surgery can reduce signs of age such as wrinkles and jowling for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
The natural process of aging along with other factors such as sun exposure and genetics can lead to wrinkles and excess inelastic skin forming along the face. A facelift can significantly improve these issues, eliminating excess skin and tightening the remainder for a younger and more refreshed look. This procedure can also be very effective when combined with a necklift, if desired, to smooth out wrinkles and inelastic skin along the neck. Facelift surgery has helped millions of people across the world rejuvenate their appearance and improve self-confidence in the way they look.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Sieveking will talk with you about your goals and determine if facelift surgery is the best option for your needs. A facelift traditionally involves incisions made above the hairline at the temples extending to the front of the ears. Any residual scarring from the procedure should be virtually undetectable, as the incisions are placed strategically in very discreet areas. Dr. Sieveking will eliminate excess skin, tighten the underlying muscles, and smooth out the remaining skin for a less wrinkled, more youthful appearance.
You can expect some degree of bruising and swelling after facelift surgery, which should dissipate over the ensuing days. Any discomfort can be controlled with medication. Dr. Sieveking will advise you to keep your head in an elevated position for a few days after surgery. Many patients are able to resume normal daily routines about 10 days after facelift surgery. Results from the procedure are typically fully apparent within a few weeks, once the initial swelling has faded.
