What is a Facelift?

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a plastic surgery procedure that improves signs of aging in the face and neck.

The term "facelift" is broad in the sense that it encompasses a wide range of procedures used to improve the look of the lower-third or two-thirds of the face and neck.

The Plastic Surgery Center at Williams offers patients several types of customized facelift options tailored to each patient’s desired results.

These types of customized surgical options include: weekend facelift (S Lift or Mini Facelift), extended weekend facelift, traditional facelift (SMAS, Weekend/Necklift), and deep plane facelift.

What is a Facelift Consultation?

A facelift consultation is an opportunity for patients to meet with a facial plastic surgeon and discuss their problem areas and surgical goals.

At the Plastic Surgery Center at Williams, Dr. Williams makes it a priority to align patients’ anticipated facelift results with realistic, attainable outcomes.

Just like each face is different and unique, so is each facelift.

During a consultation, patients can discuss their desired areas of improvements, including jawline, midface, jowls, and neck.
Using computer-generated imagery (CGI), Dr. Williams will provide patients with visual images of projected facelift results, aligning anticipated results with realistic outcomes.

During the consultation, Dr. Williams also evaluates volume loss where facial tissue has settled to recommend which of the four types of facelifts will best suit the patient’s needs.

Additional procedures that can be performed concurrently to assist in reducing the signs of aging, like blepharoplasty, brow lift, fat transfers, and chemical peels are discussed during the consultation.

Medical history will be reviewed along with a surgical plan before facelift surgery is scheduled.

Depending on the type of anesthesia patients are recommended to have, laboratory tests may be required.

Once patients decide to schedule a facelift surgery, they will meet with a cosmetic nurse specialist at the Plastic Surgery Center at Williams to discuss pre-operative and post-operative instructions.

During this time, patients are encouraged to ask any questions.
