Facelift

Wrinkles, loose skin, and frown lines give your face an aged appearance and can make you look older than you feel.

Facelift surgery is a tried-and-true procedure that can rejuvenate your appearance and reduce the signs of facial aging.

Dr. William C. Cohen in Orange, CA, can help you turn back the clock by providing you with natural-looking results.

Turn Back Time With Facelift Surgery

Wrinkles, frown lines, and loose skin can be the result of sun exposure, aging, and weight loss. A facelift is a cosmetic surgery that can effectively provide facial rejuvenation by tightening the skin and muscles of the face. Also known as a rhytidectomy, facelift surgery can provide more permanent and drastic results than nonsurgical options such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers.

Traditional Facelift vs. Mini Facelift

Traditional Facelift

A traditional facelift is a type of plastic surgery that focuses on the mid and bottom portions of the face and the neck area. A facelift procedure is usually done under general anesthesia, meaning you are unconscious during the surgery. Your plastic surgeon can tighten loose, sagging skin and muscles and contour your face. Because this surgery is more involved than a mini facelift and requires general anesthesia, patients often require a longer recovery time.

Mini Facelift

A mini facelift addresses issues in the lower portions of the face and upper neck. Dr. Cohen was the first plastic surgeon in Orange, CA, to perform an office-based mini facelift. This minimally invasive procedure takes just one to two hours and involves lifting the soft tissue layers of the face. Patients are given local anesthesia and sometimes a mild sedative. Patients can generally return to normal activities after approximately one week.

A Closer Look at Traditional Facelift Surgery

Facelifts are often combined with other procedures such as a neck lift, brow lift, or eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) in our Orange, CA, operating room. This is based on your unique needs, cosmetic goals, and budget. During your initial consultation, Dr. Cohen will assess your needs and develop a custom treatment plan. Your procedure will involve several steps:
The ultimate goal of facelift surgery is to give patients a more youthful appearance. 
The ultimate goal of facelift surgery is to give patients a more youthful appearance. 

Anesthesia

You will be given general anesthesia via an IV, meaning you will be asleep and feel nothing during your facelift procedure.

Incisions

Dr. Cohen will make incisions in discreet areas. The locations of these incisions will be based on your needs and cosmetic goals, but they are usually made behind the hairline or ears.

Lift and Tighten

Dr. Cohen will lift your skin and tighten your muscles. If you are undergoing a neck lift in conjunction with your facelift, Dr. Cohen will also tighten the skin on your neck. Once the face has been contoured, the skin is pulled taut, and the excess is trimmed away.

Stitches

Stitches are used to close the incisions, and the site is bandaged. A surgical drain may be placed.

Recovery

You will be monitored as the anesthesia wears off before you are discharged to rest at home. You will need a responsible friend or family member to drive you home and assist you for the first few days after your surgery.

What to Expect During Recovery

Recovery is different for each person, but there are some things you should keep in mind as you recover and heal.

Pain Management

Some swelling, bruising, and discomfort are to be expected. The use of ice and over-the-counter pain medications is recommended to minimize and alleviate these symptoms. Your plastic surgeon may prescribe you pain medication if needed.

Rest

Get plenty of rest during the first 48 hours following surgery. You can begin light exercises like walking and stretching after about two weeks. A normal workout routine can be adopted after about five weeks, but heavy lifting and long runs are still not recommended. Patients can typically return to work in about a week.

Follow-Up Visits

Stitches will be removed at our Orange, CA, practice after about five to seven days. You may have a follow-up appointment around the 4-week mark. It is important to attend all follow-ups so Dr. Cohen can ensure you are healing properly.

If you experience significant pain, swelling, or other uncomfortable symptoms, please call us immediately. For other questions, feel free to call or message us.
