What your facial plastic surgeons in Winston-Salem and Clemmons, NC want you to knowfacelift

As you get older, you may be noticing some changes in the contours of your face. Maybe your jawline isn’t as firm as it once was. Maybe your forehead is beginning to sag, making you look like you are frowning most of the time. No matter which signs of aging bother you, there is a procedure that can help. You need to discover the benefits of a facelift!

Your facial plastic surgeons at Wake Forest Baptist Health Facial Plastic Surgery Dr. Jordan L. Wallin and Dr. Brian W. Downs want to share the facts about how a facelift can help you. They have two convenient office locations in Wake Forest, and Clemmons, North Carolina to serve your needs.

A facelift can help you look much younger because the procedure can:

  • Eliminate lines and wrinkles
  • Firm up sagging skin around your face

The facelift is often combined with other cosmetic procedures like these:

  • A brow lift, to firm the forehead area and raise the eyebrows, giving you a younger, less frowning look
  • Eyelid surgery, to remove fatty deposits around the eyes and open up droopy eyelids due to aging or medical conditions like ptosis
  • Neck lift, to eliminate sagging skin and a droopy neckline

Your facial plastic surgeons in Wake Forest perform the facelift procedure using local anesthetic and sedation. A facelift involves removing excess skin from around your ears, and up to your scalp. Liposuction is often used at the same time to remove excess fat under your chin and neck. Your skin is lifted and tightened and then incisions are closed with sutures.

The procedure takes between three and four hours and is performed on an outpatient basis. You should plan on taking at least two weeks off after a facelift and avoid bending or lifting heavy objects for two to three weeks. You will notice the greatest benefit six months after surgery.

If you want to look younger, you should consider a facelift. The results are dramatic and you will look fantastic!
