If you look in the mirror and see a face that does not reflect how young and vibrant you really feel, a face lift may be perfect for you. A face lift performed by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Jon Paul Trevisani, MD, can eliminate or drastically improve the visible effects of aging by removing excess fat and tightening the muscles around the face and neck, giving the face a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Please contact our plastic surgeon for more information on face lift surgery, or to schedule a consultation.
The Face Lift Procedure
During the face lift procedure at our accredited Florida facility, an incision is made at the hairline that extends in front of the ear and ends behind the earlobe. Excess skin is lifted and removed, and the remaining skin is pulled back and secured with sutures or small metal clips that will be removed later. Ultimately, the goal of a face lift is to smooth out skin and give the face a more refreshed, youthful appearance. The face lift procedure can take up to three hours and is performed under general anesthesia by a board certified anesthesiologist.
Face Lift Recovery
Side effects of face lift may include swelling, bruising, numbness, and tightness; however, most face lift patients at our Florida practice experience only minor discomfort, which can be controlled with medication prescribed by Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani. Recovery after face lift usually takes two to three weeks. The first night after face lift surgery, you are taken care of by our private duty Registered Nurse in our facility.
