What is a facelift?

A facelift is a cosmetic surgery that alters your facial appearance to be more youthful. As you age, you lose some of the fat that gives your face volume. At the same time, you lose collagen and elastin in your skin, causing it to sag. A facelift doesn’t stop this process, but it can reduce the effects to revive your appearance. 

At Desired Beauty, Dr. Kerendian helps you identify the features you’d like to change with your facelift. He might also recommend getting other procedures with your facelift to enhance the effects, like dermal fillers or an eyebrow lift. 

To perform your facelift, Dr. Kerendian makes an incision near your hairline. He pulls back the skin, redistributes fat, tightens and repairs the muscles, and drapes the skin back over your face. Then, he cuts away excess skin after tightening it. Finally, he closes the incision.  

What can a facelift correct?

A facelift can improve the appearance of many common age-related facial features that appear when your skin loosens, and you lose facial fat. Dr. Kerendian might suggest a facelift if your concerns include:

  • Jowls
  • Lost facial muscle tone
  • Lost facial fat
  • Sagging neck skin
  • Deep creases between your nose and mouth
  • A double chin

The surgery can address more than one of these features. It’s important to keep in mind that your facelift won’t change your bone structure, so you’ll still look like yourself, not an entirely new person. 

How should I prepare for my facelift?

Preparation for a facelift, or any surgery, involves a few steps. The process starts with a one-on-one consultation between you and Dr. Kerendian. He evaluates you and asks about your health history, current medications, and goals. If he decides you’re a candidate for a facelift, he gives you instructions to follow leading up to the date of your surgery. They may include:

  • Avoiding smoking
  • Changing your current medications
  • Taking new medications
  • Avoiding certain supplements
  • Getting lab testing
  • Applying products on your skin
  • Arranging a ride to and from the clinic for your surgery
  • Making arrangements for supervision the first night after surgery

Dr. Kerendian makes sure you know exactly what to expect before, during, and after your facelift. You should also make arrangements to take time off work as you recover.
