A facelift (rhytidectomy) helps restore a youthful countenance and eliminates wrinkles and sagging skin. This procedure tightens the skin and muscle on the face and neck and removes excess skin.
This procedure may be carried out at an outpatient surgical facility or at a hospital. Patients having a facelift usually spend three to five hours in surgery. Most patients are able to resume normal activities within a week of the procedure. Dr. Engen will consult with each patient to determine when full activity should be resumed.
A mini-facelift can help significantly address the early signs of aging in the lower facial areas, such as a sagging jaw line or nasolabial folds. A mini-lift is often performed in conjunction with dermal fillers and SmartLipo™. The mini-lift procedure, which is performed in the physician’s office, features significantly less recovery time than a traditional facelift. Most patients can have the small stitches removed and resume normal activities in about a week.
