Face Lift Fredericksburg

Face lifts rejuvenate your appearance



As the years go by, the skin begins to loosen on the face. It is understandable then, that as the aging population grows, rhytidectomy has become third-most desired facial plastic surgical procedure. A face lift cannot stop aging, nor can it turn back the clock. What it can do is help the face look its best and give a look of health and more youthful appearance.

In the face lift procedure the surgeon begins with an incision in the area of the temple hair, just above and in front of the ear, then continues around the lobe, circling behind the ear before returning into the scalp.

  • The skin is raised outward before the surgeon repositions and tightens the underlying muscle and connective tissue. Some fat may be removed, as well as excess skin.
  • After trimming the excess skin, the surgeon closes the incisions with fine sutures and/or metal clips, which permit surgery without shaving hair from the incision site.
  • Many patients experience very little pain after face lift surgery, however some degree of swelling and bruising is unavoidable and cold compresses may be used to keep swelling to a minimum.
  • If a dressing has been applied, it will be removed within one or two days. face lift recovery is usually two or three weeks, though many patients go back to work in two weeks. Face lift scars are usually not noticeable after enough time has passed for them to heal thoroughly.
