Facelift

You deserve to look and feel your best every single day. Our state-of-the-art technology and compassionate environment make it easy for you to achieve the face of your dreams.

A facelift reshapes your face and neck to give you smoother, firmer skin. Facelifts are a form of facial cosmetic surgery that dramatically improve the appearance of:

  • Creases along the nasiolabial folds
  • Facial sagging
  •  Jowls
  • Excess skin giving you the appearance of a double chin

A facelift can make a patient look 5 to 10 years younger. Dramatic as the end results are, this is not a simple procedure. It requires a week to 10 days of recovery.

Our objective is to create a natural appearance that is pleasing to you. 

Before Surgery

Dr. Dhaliwal will discuss with you how your face can look and what you can expect from surgery. Before and After photographs will reveal what the surgery has accomplished.

The Procedure

A facelift is frequently performed in conjunction with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), forehead lift, chin augmentation, and/or liposuction, to create an overall rejuvenation of the face. The procedure can be repeated as gravity continues its effects after the first surgery.

Facelifts are performed in outpatient surgical centers or in an accredited physician’s office. Local anesthesia with intravenous sedation is most commonly used, with premedication to help you relax. General anesthesia is generally not required but can be used if desired.

The surgeon will make incisions inside the hairline at the temple, in front of the ear, then around the earlobe and behind the ear, ending at the scalp area. Excess skin is removed and sagging muscles and connective tissues are tightened. In some cases, fatty deposits are removed from beneath the chin and neck. Incisions are closed with small sutures.

The procedure may take up to 5 hours depending on whether any other procedures are performed at the same time.
