Facelifts are appropriate for healthy men and women who have reasonable expectations for improving loose facial skin and jowls.

Yes, patients often combine blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, injectable fillers, and/or chin augmentation with their facelift. Dr. Batniji will meet with you during your consultation to discuss areas of concern, and advise on your individual case.
Your facelift surgery may take several hours to perform and will likely utilize local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. With a traditional facelift, an incision is made which begins at about the temples in the hairline running down and around the ears and ending behind the ears in the lower scalp. Less extensive procedures with smaller incisions may be an option for patients with minimal sagging. Through this incision, Dr. Batniji will separate the skin from the underlying fat and muscle in order to trim excess fat and skin, tighten the muscle and re-drape the skin.
Your facelift surgery may result in some amount of discomfort, numbness of the skin, swelling and bruising. Discomfort can be treated with medication and the bruising will fade after two to three weeks. To minimize swelling, it is best to keep the head elevated during the first few days after your surgery. You will have a bandage applied to your head after your procedure and this will remain in place for up to five days. Ten to fourteen days after your facelift, you will likely feel well enough to return to work and other non-strenuous activities.
