Boise Face Lifts & Appearance Enhancement

Face lifts are one of the most common cosmetic procedures for plastic surgeons to perform.  Used to create a more youthful appearance, a facelift generally involves removing and tightening sagging skin to eliminate wrinkles and droopy areas of the face. In a typical full facelift, an incision is made along the hairline and the skin is disconnected from the deeper tissues. Excess skin is then removed and the remaining skin is tightened. The key to a successful facelift is producing a natural, youthful look without over-tightening the skin.

Facelift FAQ

Q.) Will my skin appear stretched out after I have facelift surgery?
Many of my patients ask this question during their Boise, Idaho facelift consultation. While they want a rejuvenated appearance, they don’t want to come out of surgery with a “wind-blown” look, and even with a refreshed appearance, they still want to look like themselves. Instead of offering a one-size-fits-all facelift, I like to look at each patient’s specific concerns and focus on the areas they need rejuvenation.

Q.) Do I need a traditional facelift if I’m only bothered by lines and wrinkles on my forehead?
While a facelift may be a viable option, if your signs of aging are solely expressed by lines and wrinkles on your forehead, you may be a more suitable candidate for a brow lift or upper facelift rather than a  full Cosmetic face lift. To determine which procedure will best suit your needs, schedule a consultation.

Q.) Can a facelift reduce wrinkles and bags around my eyes?
During facelift surgery, a plastic surgeon removes excess tissue and then lifts the remaining tissue to tighten skin and reduce the signs of aging. Therefore, a Facelift can help reduce wrinkles and bags that may start to appear around the eyes with age. However, Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) specifically targets those signs of aging around the eyes. Boise Plastic Surgery Dr’s perform eyelid surgery, which can typically be in conjunction with a facelift, on the upper and/or lower eyelids to eliminate a hooded appearance, bags, and wrinkles around the eyes depending on the patient’s needs. Cosmetic plastic surgery

Q.) How long is facelift recovery time?
Most traditional facelift patients are able to get back to their normal routines within two weeks of surgery, but “mini” facelift procedures usually require less recovery time due to their less invasive nature.
