Facelifts are a dramatic intervention to treat the effects of aging through an extensive treatment of prominent wrinkles. While it may cover many aspects of the aging process, it does not cover everything. Depending on your concerns, Dr. Schalit often combines one or more other procedures to improve the effects of your facelift. 

What is a Facelift?

A facelift is an anti-aging procedure to restore your youthful complexion by removing prominent wrinkles and sagging skin on the lower face. The procedure typically is an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia with IV sedation. Dr. Schalit makes inconspicuous incisions along the hairline, removes excess skin, tightens sagging muscles and connective tissue, and sometimes removes fat deposits under the chin and neck. 

Facelifts typically take 2-3 hours and require 7-10 days for recovery. You may reverse 5-10 years on your face with only a facelift, but often it is combined with other procedures.

What Procedures Can be Combined with a Facelift?

Facelifts have dramatic results but do not cover every aspect of the face. To achieve your ideal results, you must know what you hope to achieve and your concerns before starting your treatment. Dr. Schalit combines facelifts with a variety of procedures, including:

Neck Lifts

Neck lifts are the most common procedure Dr. Schalit combines with a facelift. The neck often ages faster than the face, which makes it a target when reducing signs of aging. An incision under the chin gives Dr. Schalit access to your neck muscles to manipulate to a more youthful contour. 

Eyelid Surgery

The eyes are one of the most prominent facial features. Eyelid surgery may be done on the upper or lower eyelids or both. Dr. Schalit removes excess skin and repositions or removes fat pads to improve unearned “tired” expressions for a brighter appearance. 

Chin Augmentation

Chin augmentation can enhance facelifts results by improving the balance and harmony of the face. Chin augmentation may be done through an implant or readjustment of your jawbone.

Botox® is often used to improve the effects of your facelift by targeting wrinkles not addressed by your facelifts, such as forehead lines, crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and more. 

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Facelifts may adjust the shape of your skin, but they cannot change the quality. Laser skin resurfacing can improve dark spots, minimize the appearance of a scar, and prompt collagen production during your recovery for the maximum rejuvenation effect. 

Chemical Peel

Like laser resurfacing, chemical peels can improve the quality of your skin by reducing hyperpigmentation, melasma spots, and your skin’s texture. You may take advantage of your downtime by combining these facial treatments with your facelift surgery.
