Are You a Good Candidate?
A face lift may achieve your goals if you want to correct:
Facial lines and wrinkles
Midface sagging, such as loose skin around your cheeks
Nasolabial folds (those deep creases that travel from each side of your nose to the corners of your mouth)
Sagging jowls or “heavy” jaw line
Fat deposits and loose skin below your chin and jaw
During your consultation, Dr. Arledge will discuss whether combining other procedures with your face lift will achieve a more complete rejuvenation, such as eyelid lift, brow lift, neck liposuction, or fat transfer.
To keep you comfortable throughout your 4 to 6 hour Lubbock face lift procedure, Dr. Arledge uses general anesthesia and in some cases local sedation. After the anesthesia has been administered, she performs the incisions, placing them so that they will be almost invisible after they have healed. Dr. Arledge then performs the steps needed to remove excess fat in areas such as your neck and jowls, which, when beneficial, she transfers to the cheeks or under-eye hollows.
In addition, Dr. Arledge tightens the underlying muscle layer and re-positions the tissues, resulting in a beautifully sculpted face. Finally, she re-drapes the skin for a look that is firmer, yet not unnaturally pulled or tight.
During your consultation, Dr. Arledge will give you detailed instructions for your recovery, including information about medications and how to protect your incisions. You will return to her office 1 to 3 days after your surgery to remove the surgical drain and some of the sutures, and then a few days later to remove the rest. Most patients can return to their regular routines in about a week, resuming light exercise in 2 weeks and their regular fitness routines in 3 weeks.
Results and Benefits
Now when you look in the mirror, the youthful, refreshed, elegantly sculpted face that you see reflects just how vibrant you feel. You’ll look naturally younger, thanks to the subtly beautiful results that Dr. Arledge is known for.
