About Facelifts

Dr. Gary Rosenbaum, founder of Gary J. Rosenbaum, M.D., P.A. Plastic Surgery in Miami Beach, FL, performs facelift surgery to firm sagging facial tissues and restore a more youthful facial appearance. Facelift surgery is perhaps the most popular of cosmetic surgery procedures, as it can dramatically increase the overall look of the face by removing excess skin, smoothing deep folds, and lifting and tightening the facial tissues. It is often said that a facelift can “turn back the hands of time” to bring back the glow and youthfulness of years past. When a skilled plastic surgeon like double board-certified Dr. Rosenbaum is performing the surgery, this just might be the case.

Ideal Candidates

The best candidates for facelift surgery:

  • Have aged skin with lines, wrinkles, or sagging skin
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Desire a long-term, natural-looking solution

What to Expect

Facelift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure at an accredited surgical facility where the patient is under general anesthesia. With carefully placed incisions behind the ear and around the hairline, extraneous tissue, skin, and fat are removed from the face. The underlying tissue and muscles are tightened to create long-term results. The skin is repositioned and re-draped more tightly for a smooth, natural appearance. Facelift surgery typically takes around four hours to complete.

Anticipated Results

After a facelift, a dressing will be placed over the surgical site and it will be replaced during the initial follow-up visit. It’s normal to experience pain and discomfort, which can be alleviated with medication prescribed by Dr. Rosenbaum. There should also be an expectation of swelling and bruising up to two weeks after surgery. After about several weeks, most patients can resume normal activities like going back to work and working out. After about three weeks, patients are able to notice the dramatic and natural results of the surgery. While facelifts offer long-term solutions, just like any other surgery, the effects are not permanent since the face will continue to naturally age. However, a patient will still look younger compared to if he or she had never had the surgery.
