                            Face Lift

Beautiful Girl face. Perfect skin

The facelift procedure continues to evolve. Over the years, the procedure has changed from simple skin lifting to more complex deeper plane techniques. Today, many different techniques exist, with outcomes that are consistently reliable and durable. As a talented Phoenix facelift surgeon, Dr. Leverett offers several face lift procedures that he carefully customizes according to the aesthetic needs of each patient.

How Do You Know If You’re a Candidate

Some patients being seeing the signs of aging in their neck, jowls and smile lines earlier than expected and the non-surgical procedures are not enough of a correction for them. Therefore patients may look at undergoing a facelift surgery as young as 35 years old and up to 80 years old. It is not uncommon for a patient who had a facelift earlier in life to undergo a secondary facelift as gravity begins to take effect. A clearance from your healthcare provided is required to proceed with surgery. Patients who are currently smoking must discontinue the use of any nicotine products (that includes the gum and patch) 3 months prior to surgery.

Your Surgery

The facelift procedure frequently involves incisions around the ears and depending on the patient may extend into the scalp. Once the incisions are made, the skin is gently elevated, and the deeper layers of the face are ‘lifted’ or suspended. Muscle tightening as well as liposuction of the neck and jowls may be performed, and excess skin is either removed or repositioned. The procedure is often done on an out-patient basis and in some cases is done under IV Sedation. The results are a softening of the unwelcome effects of gravity and a more youthful contour to the face and neck

Recovery

Many patients are pleasantly surprised at how quickly the recovery process is and report the discomfort level being significantly less than they anticipated. We do advise patients to take 2 weeks off from work and social events as there is bruising and swelling following the procedure. We have patients begin anti-bruising remedies prior to surgery and topical treatments after to help reduce the bruising. Swelling is typically gone in 7-10 days. During the first 2 weeks following surgery you will have scheduled visits in our office for dressing and suture removal.
