Facial Surgery focuses on the lower portion of the face and will correct sagging skin around the lower lids, nose, mouth and chin or jowls.
Full Facelifts are recommended for people over 40. The surgery is performed in office, usually under a general anesthetic. A Full Facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, typically last for about 10 years; less for patients over 60. Full recovery after a facelift can take several months but most patients are ready to resume regular activities after 3 weeks.
Mini Facelifts are designed to provide an almost immediate improvement to your appearance in the mid to lower part of the face, and do not take nearly as long to heal as full facelifts. Mini facelifts generally take only a couple of hours to perform and can be done in-office with only local anesthetic.
The Perfect Combination
Dr. Whitlock may recommend combining a facelift with eyelid surgery or dermal fillers or another treatment to give you the overall youthful appearance you desire. Whitlock Cosmetic also offers spa treatments (link to medispa landing page) to help maintain the facelift following your full recovery.
