Facelift in Macon, GA

As aging takes a toll on your skin, you may notice the appearance of wrinkles, lines, creases, and sagging skin on your face. If you want to turn back the clock a few years, a facelift performed by board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Joshua R. Groves at Georgia Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in Macon may be the ideal solution to restore your youthful and luminous appearance. A facelift or rhytidectomy lifts and tightens facial skin, imparting a smooth, firm, youthful appearance. This procedure is popular among men and women of Macon, Warner Robins, Houston County, Bibb County and the surrounding area who seek a more youthful appearance.

What is a Facelift?

Rhytidectomy, a procedure commonly referred to as facelift is a plastic surgery procedure that tightens excess sagging skin in the face, producing a taut and smooth facial contour and a fresher, younger-looking appearance. A facelift is the most comprehensive procedure available to erase facial wrinkles, creases, folds, and sagging skin that may be caused by the aging process. The facelift is a popular procedure among women and men and may sometimes be performed in combination with blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery, or another specialized cosmetic procedure. In some cases, injectable fillers may also be used to complete the makeover.

Benefits of a Facelift

The primary benefit of the facelift is the improvement of your overall facial appearance, and the resulting boost it gives to your confidence and self-esteem. By eliminating wrinkles, creases, folds, lines, and sagging skin, the facelift literally takes years off your appearance and leaves your face radiant, smooth, firm and luminous. A facelift can transform and rejuvenate your appearance, making you feel more confident and attractive. The results of facelift surgery may last for up to ten years.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?

If you are starting to notice the visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles, lines, folds, creases, and sagging skin in your face, you may be an excellent candidate for a facelift. During your initial consultation for a facelift, Dr. Groves and his team of specialized medical professionals will examine your medical history to make sure that you are in general good health and to determine whether a facelift may be right for you.

How is the Facelift Performed?

The facelift surgery is normally performed within three to four hours and requires some minuscule incisions in the hairline and skin folds. During the procedure, the skin, muscles, and fat in the face and neck are lifted, trimmed, reshaped, moved, and/or sculpted to create a taut, youthful contour that looks natural and smooth.

How Long Is The Recovery Period After A Facelift?

The majority of patients will usually require about a week to recover from the facelift procedure, and total healing usually takes one month, at which point you will see the full results. You may experience tenderness, discomfort, bruising, redness, and temporary skin numbness, but these typically resolve within a few days. The results of a facelift are permanent. However, your face will continue to age naturally in the years following the surgery. For most patients, the facelift procedure provides results that are visible for approximately 10 years.

How Much Does A Facelift Cost in Macon?

The cost of a facelift or any other cosmetic procedure will vary from patient to patient because of the variety of techniques used during this procedure and the personalized combination of techniques that you may require.
