Restore Your Natural Youthfulness
By breathing new life into your aging skin, our plastic surgery team in Castle Rock will help you conserve the natural foundation of your face with a rhytidectomy, or facelift. Helping you look younger and more refreshed while keeping the integrity of your facial contours is our goal and promise.
The Benefits of a Facelift
As we become older, our facial skin can begin to sag, adding years to our appearance. A facelift will tighten the facial and neck muscles and remove excess or unwanted skin.
A facelift is designed to treat:
- Sagging cheeks
- Fat folds around the neck
- Hanging jowls
By maintaining the contours of your facial features, our surgeons will lift, tighten and tone your appearance.
The Facelift Procedure
The exact sequence of incisions and methods depends on your facial structure, but the general procedure requires the separation of skin from the underlying tissue and muscle. While under anesthesia, your plastic surgeon will trim away or suction fat and tighten the muscles. The deep layers of tissue are secured in place with internal sutures, and your skin will be repositioned back into place. After surgery, bandages are applied to your face around the treated area, and tubes may be inserted to allow excess fluid to drain from the incisions.
Everyone recovers differently, but you should begin to see noticeable differences in just a few days, and should feel comfortable going back to work in 10 days. Don’t be surprised if you still see some minor swelling, bruising, or paleness to your skin – most patients will look and feel better within three weeks. Over time, any scars will fade and flatten.
Begin with a Facelift Consultation
Facelifts do not improve your skin’s tone or texture, so we recommend utilizing our non-surgical volumizing and smoothing treatments like Botox® or Juvéderm®, to address these concerns once you have fully healed. Either way, our physicians at the Center for Plastic Surgery at Castle Rock will apply their extensive experience and advanced surgical skill to your unique situation. Give us a call to schedule your consultation.
