Your Improvements from a Facelift
Dr. Brooks gives personal attention to every patient who visits him and will take the time explain what facelift surgery can accomplish for you. A facelift focuses on the lower two-thirds of the face from the ears, across to the cheeks, and down to the jaw line, providing a variety of improvements, including:
- Smoothing out wrinkled skin
- Lifting away sagging cheeks and jowls
- Removing unwanted fat deposits
Once they've decided to undergo plastic surgery, many women and men combine their face lift with other facial cosmetic procedures, such as eyelid surgery, brow lift, or rhinoplasty for a more comprehensive facial enhancement. Dr. Brooks will customize a set of procedures to your unique facial anatomy and cosmetic goals.
What to Expect
Dr. Brooks usually performs face lift surgery as an outpatient procedure while the patient is under general anesthesia. He takes special care to conceal the incisions along the natural folds and contours of the face. Although swelling and bruising cannot be avoided, it can be minimized by keeping your head elevated while sleeping and resting for the first few days. Most patients can resume their regular everyday activities, including work, after about 10 to 14 days. You will need to delay strenuous activity for about a month.
After their procedure, our facelift patients often enjoy a gentle facial massage to facilitate healing at our Spa on the Green conveniently located upstairs. We'd be happy to give you more details during your consultation.
Although there are a variety of non-surgical treatments that can help give your face a more youthful look, facelift surgery often provides the most impressive results. Our patients enjoy looking years younger, and often feel more confident as well. Dr. Brooks takes special care to preserve your unique facial characteristics, while helping you look great for your age.
