What Is a Facelift?

One of the most sought-out procedures at Magnolia Plastic Surgery and MedSpa is the facelift. This treatment concentrates on distinct sections of the face to reduce loose skin and lines to produce a rejuvenated, supple, youthful appearance for our New Orleans, LA patients. Depending on your unique concerns, a facelift can focus on the lines and wrinkles near the eyes, the cheeks and mid-face, the mouth, neck, and more for an all-encompassing younger look. The facelift method used depends on your desired outcome, the condition of your skin, the degree of skin laxity, age, lifestyle, and other influences. Dr. Charvet is a skilled surgeon who has a complete understanding of the complexity and delicate anatomy of a facelift procedure and can help you reach your desires. The overall goal is to produce a natural look that's soft and beautiful.

How is a Facelift Performed?

There are a number of facelifts to consider, and Dr. Charvet will help you decide which option will be best for you. Some of the more common facelift methods include:

  • Full facelift: An incision is made close to the hairline, then extends down to the temples, stopping near the base of the ears. The underlying facial muscles are gently pulled and tightened to create a lifted look, which reduces excessive lines and wrinkles.
  • Mid-facelift: The mid-facelift focuses on the hollow and lax areas around the cheekbones and the upper jaw. This lift works well for those who seek improvement in the middle to lower region of the face, which also improves the look of the jowls.
  • Lower facelift: The lower facelift addresses the chin, neck, and sometimes the jowls.
  • Mini facelift: During a mini facelift, a tiny incision is made around the ears to lift the skin to a higher position, which enhances the mouth, jawline, and jowls.

No matter the type of facelift, you will be monitored before you are released to be taken home by a responsible adult. Prior to your surgery, Dr. Charvet or a member of his team will plan your follow-up appointments and discuss suggestions to help you recover faster and more comfortably. It's normal to have bruising and swelling, some moderate soreness, and discomfort, which may be helped by pain medication. You can expect a smoother and younger-looking facial appearance after several weeks.

Facelift FAQ

How much does a facelift cost?
The total cost of your facelift will depend on the technique and other factors. In your consultation, Dr. Charvet will create your unique treatment plan based on your needs and goals. When this is established, he can go over estimates of fees. To avoid results that look unnatural, it's best to concentrate on finding a skilled surgeon, like Dr. Charvet, instead of the lowest price. Magnolia Plastic Surgery & MedSpa can help you find low-interest medical financing that will make your facelift affordable.

Which technique is best for me?
The best surgical facelift technique for you will depend on your concerns, goals, level of skin laxity, which areas are being addressed, and more. To produce your best results, Dr. Charvet will go over the different techniques in your consultation. He can then help you choose which technique is best for you.

Should I get a surgical or nonsurgical facelift?
Although there are several great noninvasive skin tightening procedures, these can usually only give you small improvements. For moderate to severe skin sagging, facelift surgery is the best choice to improve your appearance. In your consultation, Dr. Charvet will discuss your options, including nonsurgical procedures, to help you decide which is best for your goals.

What about wrinkle fillers and relaxers over facelift surgery?
Wrinkle fillers and relaxers, like JUVÉDERM® and BOTOX®, have become very popular to improve fine lines and wrinkles. Sometimes known as a liquid facelift, injectable wrinkle treatments usually help with early signs of aging, but the results are temporary. A facelift will produce more significant improvements than injectables, with results that can last for a long time. Ask Dr. Charvet about injectable treatments in your consultation.

Will my results look natural?
Some patients worry that facelift surgery will make their skin look shiny, overly tight, or like they are in a wind tunnel. Dr. Charvet focuses on giving you results that look natural, so you appear refreshed, not fake. He listens to your concerns and goals before developing your custom treatment plan to produce your best results.
