The facelift surgery treats these changes by tightening the deeper muscle layer (SMAS) and removing loose, excess skin. It can refresh and rejuvenate your overall appearance by restoring a smooth, firm, and naturally youthful look to your neck, jawline, and cheeks.

Am I a candidate for a facelift?

A correctly performed facelift will create a refreshed, youthful look, with a “never had surgery” appearance. This procedure can be performed on individuals ranging in age from their 40s to their 80s, as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other facial plastic surgery procedures, including:

If you're experiencing a loss of skin elasticity, loss of facial volume, shrinking facial bones, sagging cheeks, jowls, lack of youthful definition at your jawline, wrinkles, creases, and/or sagging neck tissue, you're likely to be an excellent candidate for a custom facelift in Aspen at Mangat Plastic Surgery.

What is the facelift procedure?

Your facelift in Breckenridge will be performed with intravenous sedation and local anesthesia, and typically requires about two to three hours to complete. In a traditional facelift, the incision begins at the temples in the hairline, continuing down around the front of the ears to the lower face and behind the ears. An additional incision may be needed, hidden beneath the chin. The procedure involves elevating the skin and tightening the underlying muscles and tissue, including redistributing facial fat. When the facial recontouring is complete, the skin is redraped, excess skin is removed, and the incisions are meticulously closed. If there is volume loss in the face, fat transplants can be performed at the same time, ensuring a natural-looking result.

What is recovery like after a facelift?

After a facelift, your incisions will be covered with gentle pressure bandages to help reduce swelling and bruising. During the first few days of your recovery, you will need to rest, with your head elevated for three days, using a comfortable cooling mask to minimize swelling and bruising, and control discomfort. Any additional pain can be managed with medication. The sutures will be removed approximately one week after surgery.

FAQ

How long will a facelift last?

The aging process continues after a facelift. Your doctor can recommend a skincare routine to help maintain your new look. In general, you can expect the results of a facelift to last approximately ten years.

What is a limited incision facelift?

A limited incision facelift, or mini facelift, has a shorter incision, beginning in the hairline above the ear and around the front of the ear. This approach is designed to treat moderate signs of facial aging before they become more extensive. A limited incision facelift (or mini-lift) is ideal for younger women and men with the early signs of facial aging who want to maintain a more youthful facial look.

What is TISSEEL?

TISSEEL is a surgical tissue “glue” made from natural materials that help stop bleeding and seal tissues. TISSEEL is made of two substances naturally found in the human body, fibrinogen, and thrombin. TISSEEL is applied as a liquid to coat the area under the skin that the doctor has corrected. It sets within seconds to form a natural fibrin clot or “patch” over the wound. In time, the fibrin clot is naturally absorbed, and your own tissue heals underneath the fibrin clot. With the use of TISSEEL, the healing process can be dramatically shortened, and bruising is minimized.
