Before & After


Your Facelift

Facelift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that reduces signs of aging in the neck and lower face. A wide variety of techniques exist in facial plastic surgery, but the general goals are very similar in each case. However, no two surgeons will give you identical results. For a gratifying improvement, see a qualified surgeon for your facelift. Aesthetic goals of facelift surgery include moderate tightening of facial tissues and removal of excess fat and skin.

Is a Facelift the Right Procedure for Me?

In most cases, the ideal facelift patient is around 40 years or older, but this procedure can be performed on patients of just about any age. If you’re in good health and don’t smoke, you’re likely an ideal candidate. We recommend that you notify Dr. Rosen if you have high blood pressure, a history of problems with blood clotting, or a tendency to form prominent scars.

If this sounds like you, you’re likely a great candidate for a facelift if you’re dealing with:

  • Drooping jowls
  • Deep facial creases or folds
  • Loose, excess skin on the face and neck
  • Fat deposits around the lower face and neck

How the Facelift Procedure is Performed

Facelift surgery is typically an outpatient procedure that requires about two to three hours of operating time. Local anesthesia is a common choice for cosmetic surgeons, but general anesthesia is also an option if you think that might be the best choice for you.

During your consultation, Dr. Rosen will walk you through the details of your procedure. Facelift incisions are placed near the temple and follow the natural contour of your skin, traveling in front of the ear toward the neck. Dr. Rosen separates the skin from the fat and muscle, before tightening the underlying tissues and lifting the skin, then trimming and redraping it, to produce an improved facial contour. Special sutures will be placed to fixate the layers of tissue and close the surgical incisions.

How much does a facelift cost?

Unfortunately, your insurance carrier likely won’t cover a facelift procedure, as it’s considered elective in nature. Since the cost for this procedure varies based on the details of your specific surgery, we’ll be able to give you a specific cost breakdown after your consultation, once we’ve worked out your treatment plans. We’ll also talk you through financing options, to make the procedure more affordable.

Preparing for Your Facelift Procedure

Before the day of your surgery, we’ll set up a series of pre-operative consultations, which will give Dr. Rosen a chance to learn everything he can about your goals and the specifics of your treatment. You’ll come up with your treatment plan together, and he’ll walk you through just about everything you’ll want to know, both about your procedure itself and about the recovery period that will follow it. We’re here to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible, so don’t hesitate to ask us any questions you might have during your consultation!

What to Expect During Recovery from a Facelift

Although it may vary with different techniques, the average recovery period after a facelift with Dr. Rosen is between two and three weeks. After your surgery, a bandage will be wrapped around your face to minimize swelling. You’ll deal with a normal amount of numbness, swelling, and bruising is normal, and you’ll need to keep your head elevated during the initial recovery period. Your stitches will be removed during the first week, and you can plan to relax and get plenty of rest during your facelift recovery.

Are There Any Possible Complications with a Facelift Procedure?

Like all surgical procedures, a facelift carries a risk of complications and side effects. Possible adverse events include but are not limited to hematoma, nerve damage, infection, reaction to anesthesia, and poor healing. If the possibility of complications is a particular concern for you, ask Dr. Rosen for more information.
