Facelifts, or rhytidectomy, can transform a patient’s appearance by diminishing lines and wrinkles, and tightening loose and saggy skin, yielding dramatic results. While other options for facial rejuvenation are available, there are several benefits in opting for a facelift versus using facial fillers or other nonsurgical treatments.
Facelifts are extremely effective when performed correctly, but are sometimes given a bad reputation due to an unnatural “tunnel-look” that some patients experience in the hands of an inexperienced surgeon. Y Plastic Surgery’s Dr. Yalif, however, is double board-certified and has given natural, beautiful results to many men and women.
The best candidates for facelift surgery:
- Have aged skin with lines, wrinkles, and saggy skin
- Have realistic expectations
- Desire a long-term solution
- Desire a natural look

What to Expect@headingTag>
Facelift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure at an accredited surgical facility while the patient is under general anesthesia. With carefully-placed incisions behind the ear and around the hairline, extraneous skin, tissue, and fat are removed from the face. The underlying tissue and muscles are tightened to provide long-term effects from the procedure. Sagging skin is repositioned and re-draped tighter for a smooth, natural appearance. Facelift surgery typically takes around four hours to complete.
After a facelift, a dressing will be placed over the surgical site and it will be replaced during the initial follow-up visit. It’s normal to experience pain and discomfort, which can be alleviated with medication prescribed by the surgeon. There should also be an expectation of swelling and bruising for up to two weeks after surgery. After about two weeks, most patients can resume normal activities like going back to work and exercise.
After about three weeks, patients begin to notice the dramatic and natural results of the surgery. While facelifts offer a long-term solution, just like any other surgery, the effects are not permanent since the face will continue to naturally age. However, a patient will still look younger compared to if he or she had never had the surgery.
