Facelifts continue to be one of the most popular facial surgery procedures thanks to their ability to dramatically restore youthfulness to the face. If you are located in Lake Jackson, Bay City, Angleton, or Houston, you can trust Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery for your facelift procedure. Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Pisarski specializes in this and other facial surgery procedures.
What is a Facelift?
A facelift is a cosmetic surgery technique that produces comprehensive rejuvenation benefits in the face. With the facelift procedure, patients can address loose skin, lines and wrinkles in the face. These are common signs of aging that cause both men and women to look older than they actually are. A facelift can reverse these signs of aging to take years off of a person’s appearance. At Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery, we are proud to specialize in facelifts and other facial surgery procedures to help patients achieve their cosmetic goals and maintain their youthful appearance for years to come.
How Much Does a Facelift Cost in Houston, TX?
The cost of a facelift depends on your individual needs. At Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery, we strive to make our facelift procedures as affordable as possible. We accept most insurances and all major credit cards in addition to cash, checks, and money orders. We also offer financing options through CareCredit®, and will provide full details on financing during your one-on-one consultation.
Am I a Candidate for a Facelift?
If you are looking for a surgical procedure than can eliminate lines, wrinkles and sagging skin to rejuvenate your appearance, you might be a good candidate for a facelift. If you are taking certain medications, it might be recommended to stop taking these to prepare for the surgery. This will be discussed with Dr. Pisarski during your consultation.
How is a Facelift Performed?
A facelift is performed with the aid of general anesthesia, ensuring that you will remain completely safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. During treatment, incisions will be made around the ears and along the hairline, where any scarring will be well-concealed. Once incisions are made, excess skin will be trimmed away. The remaining skin will be lifted and tightened to eliminate wrinkles and produce the desired results.
What is Recovery Like After a Facelift?
Because of the incisions made during the facelift procedure, swelling and bruising are to be expected. These symptoms will be at their worst during the first few weeks, and may take a few months to completely resolve. A compression dressing or garment might be recommended to help reduce the swelling. We recommend taking at least one week off of your normal daily activities in order to rest and encourage healing. During your initial consultation, Dr. Pisarski will discuss what activities you should and should not be doing for the duration of your recovery.
How Long Will My Facelift Results Last?
Facelift results generally last for 10 years or longer, but they cannot prevent you from gradually developing signs of aging in the future. Still, our patients enjoy that the facelift seems to turn back time and makes them look years younger. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is recommended to maintain results over a longer period of time.
