A facelift can eliminate fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin to restore your youthful appearance. If you want to see tighter, smoother skin and more sculpted facial features, a facelift may give you the desired results.
What is a Facelift?
Dr. Schalit performs a facelift using small incisions that let him tighten the skin, restore volume to its proper location, and firm loose muscles. Youthful faces have soft, rounded cheeks and a firm jawline. With age, skin sags and develops lines and wrinkles. That healthy-looking volume from the cheeks can migrate to the lower face and jawline. A facelift can take years away from your face to give you back the sculpted appearance you used to have.
Where are Facelift Incisions Made?
Dr. Schalit will hide your facelift incisions within the hairline near the temples and under the ear from back to front. The natural creases of the ear will hide the small scars. Advances in surgical techniques mean that surgeons can create natural-looking results with very small incisions.
What is a Facelift Procedure Like?
Dr. Schalit performs facelifts under local anesthesia and IV sedation. You will also receive medication before your procedure to relax you. After making the incisions, he will remove excess fat and lift the facial tissues, connective tissue, and muscle back to their more youthful position.
Dr. Schalit performs a neck lift with a facelift. This combination lifts and tightens skin from the neck to the midface, removing fat from under the chin and giving you a more slender neck. A facelift can also include a brow lift or eyelid lift to rejuvenate the brow and eyelid areas.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?
If you have sagging facial skin, lines and wrinkles, and other signs of aging, you may make a good candidate for a facelift. While a facelift provides amazing results, you should understand the recovery time involved. You should stop smoking at least two weeks before and after your surgery.

What are the Benefits of a Facelift?
A facelift with a neck lift offers many age-defying benefits. You will be able to enjoy these benefits for many years to come since your facelift will last five to ten years or even longer.
- Fewer lines and wrinkles
- Firmer skin
- Restored volume in the cheeks
- Tighter jawline
- Reduced appearance of a double chin
- Slimmer neckline
If you add a brow or eyelid lift, you can see even more benefits from your total rejuvenation procedure.
What is Recovery Like From a Facelift?
Right after surgery, you will have bandages around your face. You may also have small drains to help keep fluid from building up. You will have some bruising and swelling for a week after your facelift. After two weeks, your bruising should have faded entirely.
