What is a Facelift Procedure?

A traditional facelift removes excess fat, loose skin, and tightens facial muscles. However, every patient is different, requiring a variety of techniques to achieve their desired results. The most common types of facelifts we encounter include:

  • MAS, a superficial musculoaponeurotic system facelift (the muscular layer of your face) is like a traditional facelift, only it targets the lower two-thirds of your face. Dr. Lalla will tighten muscles while trimming away excess fat and skin.
  • Deep plane facelifts target the muscular layer of your face (SMAS), the layer of fat, and the skin in one fell swoop. This variation can treat multiple areas of your face at once.
  • Mid-facelifts focus on the skin and fat around your cheeks and tighten the skin in a way that looks youthful and natural.
  • Mini facelifts are less invasive than a traditional facelift, addressing the lower face and neck. Patients with less severe signs of aging opt for mini facelifts for a quicker fix.
  • Cutaneous facelifts only target the skin. Patients with excess and drooping skin benefit from trimming away loose skin and tightening in a cutaneous facelift.

Additionally, Dr. Lalla often performs facelifts in conjunction with other anti-aging procedures such as an eyelid lift, a nose job, injectable fillers, or facial implants. Whatever your needs, Dr. Lalla will customize your treatment plan based on your current condition and your desired face-lift aesthetic.

Facelift Procedure Overview

The first step of Dr. Lalla’s facelift procedure is your consultation. We encourage you to ask questions about the procedure and express your concerns. Our goal is to ensure you are comfortable and confident in your New Jersey facelift treatment plan from your initial consultations through recovery check-ups.

First, patients will undergo general anesthesia. Next, Dr. Lalla will make an incision in your hairline, around your ears, on the lower scalp, under your chin, or in your mouth. The size and placement of incisions depend on the type of facelift based on your customized treatment plan.Next, Dr. Lalla removes excess skin, removes fat deposits, and tightens the facial muscles. With skilled precision, Dr. Lalla then repositions the skin and closes the incisions.

After surgery, it is normal to experience bruising and swelling for 2 to 3 weeks. You may have bandages that will be removed within a couple of days, along with the sutures. We recommend avoiding any strenuous activities for at least three weeks after surgery. Dr. Lalla will specify details for a quick and efficient recovery.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?

Anyone unhappy with their facial appearance due to age may be a suitable candidate for facelift surgery. If you have drooping skin or excess fat in the mid-to-lower face, including the cheeks, mouth, chin, and neck, a facelift may be a great solution. Ideal candidates are patients in their 40s, 50s, or 60s, are in good health, and have realistic outcomes for facelift surgery in New Jersey.
