    Face Lift: Before and After Photos

    Tag Archives: Facelift

    A Facelift can help erase years from the neck and jawline by lifting, tightening and smoothing the skin. Weight fluctuation can cause skin in this area to become sag, but there are very few of us who will escape the tell tale signs of aging that come from the loose and sagging skin of the neck and jowls. You can see Dr McCluskey perform a facelift here! As you can see from the patients results below, the Facelift gives a natural, subtle, younger looking silhouette to the face.

    The Facelift is an amazing procedure that dramatically reduces sagging skin, creates a smooth jawline and reveals tighter, younger looking skin that can erase years from patients’ faces! As you can see from the before and after photos below, the results are an amazingly youthful and natural profile, restoring confidence and self esteem in many of our patients! You can even watch Dr McCluskey performing a mini-Facelift here.

    The mini-lift or mini facelift is my favorite procedure for facial rejuvenation!  

    Through a small, nearly invisible incision that falls in the crease of the ear I can lift the cheek and jowl, providing dramatic & long-lasting improvement of the jaw line, the chin & sub mental region.  Using a small incision beneath the chin I can combine the mini facelift with liposuction of the neck and a neck lift.

    What I love about this procedure is that it can be performed under local anesthesia (with mild sedation) in an office setting, the incisions are small and well-hidden, the results (as you can see below) are beautiful & they stand the test of time, and the downtime & recovery are minimal.

    Facelift Surgery Atlanta

    Facelift AtlantaThe first thing that people notice about others is their face. If you have attractive facial features, you seem to draw people towards you. On the other hand, facial flaws are very difficult to hide as people are too quick to notice them. As we start aging, the signs of aging also begin to appear and these can even make us look older than our real age. To solve this problem, there is a surgical procedure which is carried out to provide the face a much younger look, it is known as facelift. In medical terms, it is called rhytidectomy. This procedure is normally done by a cosmetic surgeon.

    How well does it work?

    Undergoing a facelift procedure will definitely make you look much attractive and younger. You will keep on getting older, but a facelift can make you look even ten years younger. For many people, this may lead to an increase in self-confidence and would reduce the anxiousness of getting older. A face-lift can cut back signs of growing old to a large extent.  To achieve the best results, you might want to get a face lift done first and then go for the treatment of your skin. The safety and success of your face-lift operation depends a lot on the experience,skills and past successful surgeries of your plastic surgeon.

    What you can expect after the surgery?

    Your face will remain bandaged for a few days after the operation. The dressings and stitches will be removed after a period of five to ten days. To relieve the pain, you can take the medicines prescribed by the doctors. Use cold compresses to ease the  bruising and swelling on the face. You may have to keep your head still and elevated. You will have to refrain from smoking as tobacco raises the risk for tissue and skin damage and might defer the process of healing. You can continue with your daily routine in around three weeks time. Your skin may feel dry, rough and numb which may last for some time but this is perfectly normal after the surgery and wont bother you much.

    When to consider this surgery?

    If you are healthy and do not suffer from any kind of lifestyle diseases, have a pragmatic outlook towards the surgery and have a positive attitude to life, you are a good candidate for the operation. Apart from having a positive attitude, if you suffer from the following problems you can go for the procedure:

    • Sagging skin on your neck: People with drooping skin on the neck can go for this surgery as this procedure gets rid of the excessive skin and make your neck look better.
    • People with creases on their face
    • Excessive facial fat which looks out of place
    • Sagging skin near your jawline
    • Loss of muscles on the face
    • People having double chin

    You will be able to find a lot of qualified plastic surgeons who are specialist in the area of cosmetic surgery in and around Atlanta.
