Face Lift Q & A

What is a facelift?

A facelift is the most comprehensive treatment to reduce signs of aging, such as facial wrinkles and sagging. Dr. Tamburrino customizes your facelift procedure to address your unique skin concerns and aesthetic goals.

Facelift procedures range from minimally invasive “lunch break lifts” to extensive, sophisticated surgery. Dr. Tamburrino may also perform a neck lift at the same time to reduce signs of aging in the face, jaw, and neck.

Who is a good candidate for a facelift?

Over time, gravity, sun exposure, and other factors leave their mark on your skin. You may be a good candidate for a facelift if you experience one or more of the following signs of aging:

  • Sagging skin and loss of muscle tone in the cheeks, jowls, or jawline
  • Deep creases from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • Marionette lines that extend from the corners of your mouth down your chin
  • A double chin caused by loose skin and excess fat deposits
  • Creased, wrinkled, or sagging skin in your neck

Dr. Tamburrino finds that most adults who are in good health and have realistic expectations for plastic surgery are good candidates for a facelift. If you have additional concerns, such as droopy eyelids or bags under your eyes, he may also recommend eyelid surgery.

What should I expect from facelift surgery?

The process begins with an in-depth consultation with Dr. Tamburrino. He spends at least an hour listening to you discuss your specific cosmetic concerns and ideal outcome. Then he works with you to create a personalized treatment plan to achieve your ideal appearance.

Dr. Tamburrino performs facelifts, neck lifts, and other plastic surgery procedures either in his office or at a local hospital. The exact amount of time the procedure takes to perform and recover from depends on the extent of the surgery.

Most facelift techniques focus on the lower parts of the face, including the jawline, jowls, and cheeks. Sometimes, Dr. Tamburrino may also reposition or tighten deeper facial tissues to restore a more youthful appearance.

If you want younger-looking skin without facelift surgery, Dr. Tamburrino may recommend another service, such as injectable facial fillers or laser skin rejuvenation. To learn more, call Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery or book an appointment online today.
