Facelift Columbus Ohio
Eventually our faces lose the fight with gravity and, before we know it, our cheeks and the tissues around and below our jaw have lost elasticity. Your skin ages as you do, especially in the neck and middle and lower areas of your face. But, you don’t have to sit by and watch it happen.
A Facelift By Design
Men and women from Columbus, greater Ohio, and beyond visit Columbus Cosmetic for results that are subtle, yet remarkable. One of the top three requested procedures at our office is the facelift surgery (rhytidectomy), which is perfect for getting rid of excess skin on your face and neck and raising and tightening all the right areas for a refreshed, rejuvenated face.
What really happens during a facelift?
The primary objectives of a facelift are to reposition the facial muscles and tissues for a more youthful look, as well as to remove unnecessary skin and fat that are contributing to jowls and wrinkles in the face and neck. For most patients, the results of a facelift will last for about 15 years.
The facelift procedure is relatively simple. First, your surgeon will use a careful technique to make small facial incisions. While facelift incisions are customized for each patient case, they generally begin at the sideburn, extend in front of the ear, and end behind the ear in the hairline for a seamless finish. If necessary, an additional incision will be made below the chin. Once the facial muscles and tissues are rearranged and the extra skin is removed, you’re left with a face that has literally been lifted, and with a reduction of pesky extra tissue and skin.
Will I look “fake” after my facelift procedure?
As with every procedure they perform, Dr. Houser and Dr. Kraft will spend plenty of time listening to the outcomes you desire most during your facelift consultation. With the facelift, some patients want subtle and natural-looking facial changes or a simple skin reduction, while others want dramatic results. Regardless of your preferences, Dr. Houser and Dr. Kraft will work with laser focus to ensure that you’re satisfied with your facelift procedure. With lots of listening and information exchange, Dr. Houser and Dr. Kraft’s goal is to create the best match between a patient’s vision and their post-surgery facial results.
Nearly every facelift procedure is performed under twilight sedation, which allows for faster recovery with a reduction in pain, postoperative nausea, and vomiting. Every individual’s recovery time is unique, but most patients recuperate from a facelift in about two weeks. The full effects of the facelift surgery will be visible in about 1-2 months.
How to Choose the Right Plastic Surgeon for You
There are so many options to enhance your natural facial beauty that you may not know where to begin. Consider your end goals: are you hoping to make your entire face appear more youthful or just looking to lift your brows? Are you seeking a reduction in that stubborn skin beneath your chin or a more comprehensive facial reconstruction? Our surgeons and staff will work with you to ensure that you receive the care and facelift results you desire.
Facelifts, brow lifts, injectables, and more
If you’re a patient looking for substantial facial changes, like a more defined jawline, more noticeable cheek contours, and smoother skin in the lower face and neck area, the full facelift might be right for you. Patients can combine a brow lift with the facelift or have it administered separately to create a change in the upper face, across the forehead, and between the brows. If you’re not interested in facelift surgery, our wide range of injectable options to remove facial wrinkles and smooth skin may be just what you’re looking for.
Why choose a facelift?
Men and women choose to undergo facelifts because they produce much more noticeable facial results than our other procedures and last longer than injectables. However, if you’re not ready for the full facelift surgery, you can also select the mini facelift procedure. There’s no need to decide right now—feel free to schedule a consultation with Dr. Houser or Dr. Kraft at our Columbus, Ohio office to determine the best options to create the facelift look you’re seeking.
The Mini Facelift Procedure
A Less Invasive Facelift: What to Know
The mini facelift is great for men and women who want to minimize downtime after facelift surgery. It’s literally the mini version of a facelift, so it works to repair drooping soft tissues and loosening skin in the face and neck. By focusing just on the skin in the lower face and neck areas, the mini facelift is less invasive than the facelift.
Facelift vs. Mini Facelift: What’s the difference?
While it can take a few months to recover from a facelift, patients who receive a mini facelift may only need a few weeks of downtime before returning to their day-to-day activities. Your skin will look revived and youthful without the complete facial reconstruction of the facelift. The mini facelift is great for younger patients with early signs of facial sagging in their skin and neck or for those who don’t want to commit to the facelift.
