Facelift: The End Of Facial Skin Sagging
The facelift is a surgical procedure that’s designed to correct skin sagging, particularly the kind that occurs around the jaw and neckline. The facelift is a popular treatment, and for good reason – it can take years off of a patient’s appearance, particularly in cases where skin sagging is moderate or severe. The goal of the facelift is to remove sagging skin and reposition facial muscles for a younger-looking appearance.
How Does It Work?
The facelift is performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Keusch will make incisions around the ears, in the hairline, and/or underneath the chin in cases of a lower facelift. These incisions allow Dr. Keusch to access and reposition the facial muscles to help bring them back to a younger position. Excess fat in the neck may be removed with liposuction. Dr. Keusch may trim away excess skin in order to highlight these newfound results.
Am I a Good Candidate For a Facelift
You’re a good candidate for a facelift if you have sagging skin around your mid-to-lower facial region. For example, if you’ve noticed that you have jowls around your jawline, sunken cheeks, loose skin on the neck, or neck bands, you could see significant results from a facelift procedure. The ideal candidate should be a nonsmoker who has realistic expectations for this procedure.

What Results Will I See?*
Patients may see their results right away, especially if facial sagging was particularly pronounced. Patients should expect noticeable swelling and bruising over the course of one to two months, with optimal results visible about six months to a year after the treatment. These optimal results include smoother, younger-looking skin; more well-rested eyes; minimized sagging skin around the jaw and neckline; and more!
What is the Recovery Like?*
During the first week of recovery, you should expect tightness and mild discomfort; Dr. Keusch may prescribe a few days of pain medication to help manage discomfort. We recommend arranging for care at home, as you will have certain restrictions.
You may be able to return to work in about one to two weeks, depending on Dr. Keusch’s approval. Some patients opt to wait until the second week, when they’re able to cover post-op bruising with makeup. The majority of swelling and bruising should be gone at around the four-week mark, although minor swelling may still be present for several months after.
Throughout your recovery, you’ll have regular check-ins with Dr. Keusch to ensure your recovery is successful.
