Facelift Las Vegas

Why Consider a Facelift?

Normal facial aging is accelerated by sun damage, stress, gravity, lifestyle, weight loss, and other factors. These can cause facial skin to sag and facial volume to be lost. Plastic Surgeon Dr. Frank L. Stile understands that these changes may be gradual but can make you look older than you actually are. 

Although a facelift doesn’t stop the aging process, it does turn back the hands of time by correcting the most visible signs of aging. This is accomplished by tightening deeper structures (SMAS layer), repositioning neck muscles, re-draping, and then excising the redundant skin of the face and neck. Removing, repositioning, and sometimes grafting select areas of facial fat will help to optimize your results by restoring lost volume.

How is a Facelift Performed?

Facelift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure at our accredited surgical facility with the patient under general anesthesia.

Carefully placed incisions are made in front and behind the ear and continue around the hairline

deep tissues are repositioned

excess skin and fat are removed from the face

The underlying tissue and muscles are tightened to create long-term results. The skin is repositioned, re-draped and closed, resulting in a tighter, smoother, natural appearance. Facelift surgery typically takes around four to six hours to complete.

Learn More About Facelifts

A facelift or rhytidectomy is a cosmetic surgical procedure that rejuvenates the face and is designed to diminish the visible signs of an aging face and neck. As aging progresses, wrinkles of the face and neck become more prominent, jowls form, nasolabial folds (smile lines) deepen, and marionette lines (frown lines) appear. For comprehensive improvements of these signs of aging, a facelift is often combined with a neck lift.

The best candidates for rhytidectomy: 

  • Have aged skin with lines, wrinkles, or sagging skin. 
  • Have lost facial volume 
  • Have realistic expectations. 
  • Desire a long-term, natural-looking solution. 
  • Have good overall health  
  • Am a non-smoker

After about three weeks post-rhytidectomy, patients start to notice the dramatic and natural results of the surgery. It may take several months for results to show completely. While facelifts offer long-term solutions, just like any other surgery, the effects are not life-long since the face will continue to age naturally. However, a patient will still look younger compared to if he or she had never had the surgery.

Facelift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure at our accredited surgical facility, where the patient is under general anesthesia. After a facelift, a dressing will be placed over the surgical site and replaced during the initial follow-up visit. Patients also wear a support garment for 2-4 weeks. It’s normal to experience some pain and discomfort, which can be alleviated with medication prescribed by the surgeon. This is manageable. 

There should also be an expectation of swelling and bruising up to two weeks after surgery. Patients may be socially presentable after one week. After about two weeks, most patients can resume normal activities like going back to work. Patients may resume working out at four weeks post-op.
