What is a Facelift?
Seeing signs of aging around the face can be a frustrating experience. While medical-grade skincare routines can ward off some fine lines from appearing, the natural aging process eventually makes the skin begin to look duller, droopier, and more worn.
A facelift is a surgical cosmetic procedure that involves lifting the skin and tissue around the face while tightening loose facial muscles to provide patients with a beautifully refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. Dr. Breister Ghosh wants to reassure her patients that a facelift will not result in a windblown or overdone look like one may traditionally associate with outdated surgical procedures. Instead, she uses care and advanced techniques to provide her patients with natural-looking results that they can be proud of.
What are the Benefits of a Facelift?
There are many benefits of receiving a facelift with Dr. Breister Ghosh and her medical team, including:
- Reduces fine lines and moderate to severe wrinkles
- Tightens loosened facial muscles underneath the skin
- Reduces lax or sagging facial skin
- Refines and contours natural facial features
- Improves signs of aging along the lower two-thirds of the face.
- Boosts overall confidence
How is a Facelift Performed?
Your facelift will be performed by Dr. Breister Ghosh in an accredited outpatient surgical center. Dr. Breister Ghosh will strategically make discrete incisions around the ear and hairline so that when they heal, they are nearly invisible and concealed within your natural contours. Through these incisions, excess skin is removed and underlying structures within the face are tightened. The entire surgical procedure may take up to 2 to 3 hours to complete.
What Can I Expect After My Facelift?
Following your facelift, a dressing will be placed around your head to reduce swelling and promote healing. Dr. Breister Ghosh will provide you with detailed post-operative care instructions to ensure your healing process is quick and easy. We often encourage our patients to ice their treated areas often to reduce excess swelling and bruising. You will be required to wear a garment for approximately 7 days. Patients should talk with Dr. Breister Ghosh about the physical demands of their job, but should usually plan for around 2 to 3 weeks off work.
How Much Will My Facelift Cost?
The cost of your facelift will likely vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your desired results.
