More about Facelifts and Neck Lifts
During Your Consultation
During your face lift consultation, Dr. Davis will assess your concerns and examine your entire face and neck. Depending on your individual goals and starting point, he may also recommend combining your face lift procedure with other facial rejuvenation procedures so your result is balanced and harmonious with your features. Dr. Davis often performs a face lift with brow lifts, eyelid surgery, fat grafting, lip lifts, and laser skin resurfacing.
During your facelift procedure, Dr. Davis will lift the skin and supportive tissue beneath the skin of the cheeks, jawline, and neck. Scars are hidden around the ear and in the hairline. The bands that commonly develop in the neck are smoothed out and the excess skin of the face and neck is removed. Dr. Davis believes in a natural result without looking overly pulled, so you look like you, only younger. The surgery takes around 3-4 hours and is performed under general anesthesia.
After surgery you will be placed in head wrap and have a small suction drain. You will return to the office the next day to have the head wrap removed. We will continue to check on you as you recover and are of course here and available any day if you have any questions or concerns. Sutures and the drain are removed at your one week appointment.
Recovery from a face lift tuck takes about 2 weeks. That first week you’ll be a bit bruised and swollen but will be feeling very good at the end of the week. Many patients like to sleep in a recliner or with their head elevated on extra pillows to help reduce swelling. After the first week, you can gradually increase your activity level and most of the bruising can be covered with makeup at 2 weeks.
You can begin strenuous exercise and rigorous activity at 8 weeks.
