Aging takes its toll on us all eventually, and it is especially noticeable on the face. Whether you wish to address wrinkles, fine lines, or sagging skin, it is clear that everyone wants to look their best. Many people commonly turn to plastic surgery to enhance their overall facial appearance. Dr. Hadeed offers facelift surgery to lift and tighten the tissues of your face for a rejuvenated and healthier appearance.
What Are My Procedure Options?
Traditional facelift surgery involves lifting and tightening the skin of the middle and lower face. Incisions are made along or behind your hairline. Excess fat and skin are then removed, and the deeper layers of fat are repositioned over the cheeks to smooth out folds and fine lines.
Also known as the short scar technique, our mini facelift technique is designed to provide patients with quality facial enhancement while keeping the invasive aspects of your surgery to a minimum. This method is designed to target aging that is localized around the cheeks and under the eyes. Shorter incisions placed just behind the ears are used during a mini facelift.
Stem Cell Facelift
Our stem cell therapy facelift technique can add volume to the face through the injection of fat and stem cells, which contain growth factors to induce the skin and soft tissues of the face to produce more of their own cells. During your procedure, fat cells are harvested from various areas of the body through liposuction. The cells are then processed with a focus on purifying the stem cells within the fat. The purified fat and stem cells are then injected into the target area(s) to fill hollows and provide you with plump, youthful facial skin.
Following your facelift surgery, swelling and bruising will be present but should resolve after a few days. Be sure you avoid all strenuous activities for three weeks or until your wounds have fully healed. You will be able to return to work about one week after your procedure.
You may experience moderate discomfort after your facelift procedure. Dr. Hadeed can prescribe you oral medication to minimize the pain.
Scarring will depend on the technique used. Any visible scars that do appear can be hidden with makeup and will likely fade over time.
The cost of your facelift surgery will vary based on several factors, including surgical fees, anesthesia fees, and techniques used. Dr. Hadeed will go over your price options with you during your consultation.
