Seeing your skin start to sag or droop or noticing the development of fine lines and wrinkles in the facial area can be a disappointing but perfectly normal part of the aging process. These changes might be spurred on by something like sun damage or weather exposure, or they might be the result of simple genetics — in any case, a facelift with Dr. Rosen can essentially walk back the clock, refreshing and rejuvenating your facial appearance, so you can reclaim that youthful glow and look your very best, every single day.
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.
