Eko Plastic Surgery offers facelift procedures to help patients eliminate signs of aging and achieve a more youthful appearance. We are proud to offer this treatment to residents of Rancho Mirage, Palm Springs and Palm Desert, CA.
A facelift is a surgical procedure that diminishes fine lines and wrinkles and removes excess skin from around the eyes and jawline to give the face a rejuvenated look. It addresses problems such as:
To help further address some of these concerns, many patients choose to combine their facelift procedure with dermal fillers and injectables, or other facial surgeries such as blepharoplasty or a forehead lift.
The cost of your facelift at Eko Plastic Surgery will vary depending on the treatment plan that we develop for you. During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and treatment needs in order to determine the treatment approach that will be ideal for you. For this reason, we will not be able to provide you with the cost of your treatment until you have the chance to come in and discuss your treatment goals with Dr. Eko.
A mini facelift is a less extensive facelift procedure that offers more subtle rejuvenation benefits. It involves smaller incisions, which means a shorter recovery and less scarring for patients. The mini facelift targets the mid-face area, specifically around the cheeks and jowls. It can also help with sagging skin in the neck. The mini facelift procedure is designed to be a less invasive alternative to the full facelift, so it is rarely combined with other procedures.
During the facelift procedure, we will lift and reposition facial issues, add volume where it has been lost, and remove excess facial skin to produce a more youthful appearance of the face. During the surgery, we will make incisions around the ears and in the hairline. Additional incisions may be placed under the chin to achieve the effects of a neck lift. A facelift procedure usually takes a few hours to complete, depending on the number of additional procedures being performed at the same time.
After a facelift, some patients experience mild to moderate amounts of temporary bruising, swelling, and discomfort. These symptoms will mostly fade within a few weeks, although some minor symptoms may persist for a few months. The initial recovery period lasts about two weeks, during which time patients are encouraged to take as much time off of work and other activities as possible to ensure a smooth recovery.
The results from your facelift are incredibly long-lasting, with most patients enjoying their results for as long as 15 years. Unfortunately, the results from a facelift cannot be permanent because it is impossible to stop the natural aging process. Patients can achieve a significantly younger appearance that lasts for many years, but will still develop gradual signs of aging.
