Facelift in Savannah, GA
Facelifts are some of the most well-known facial surgeries, offering patients significant improvements in signs of aging. At Savannah Plastic Surgery, we offer this timeless procedure to the men and women living in Savannah and the neighboring cities of Chatham County.
What is a Facelift?
A facelift is a comprehensive facial surgery technique that addresses loose skin and wrinkles in the face. Wrinkles and skin laxity are the primary concerns of patients who are experiencing the effects of aging, and the face is often the first place to show these effects. The facelift procedure can lift and tighten the skin on the face, rejuvenating the appearance to create a more youthful look. With a facelift, patients can address the following areas:
- Forehead and forehead wrinkles
- Cheeks and mid-face
For patients who do not need a full facelift treatment, we may recommend the FreshLook Lift®. This limited facelift procedure is focused on the jowls, offering a less-invasive procedure with less scarring and a shorter recovery.
How Much Does a Facelift Cost?
The cost of a facelift at Savannah Plastic Surgery can range from $7,000 to $14,000. The exact cost of your treatment will depend on variables that include your treatment goals and the extent of treatment necessary to achieve those results. During your consultation, we will discuss these factors in order to develop a personalized treatment plan and provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We can also determine your eligibility for health insurance coverage at this time. To learn more about our insurance policies or your payment options, please refer to our financing and insurance page.
What is the Facelift Treatment Like?
The facelift procedure is performed in our surgicenter and begins with using the appropriate anesthetic, ensuring that our patients receive a safe and comfortable treatment. The incisions for a facelift begin around the back of the ears, and often extend either towards the neck or up through the hairline. Through these incisions, we will remove and tighten excess skin to improve the contours of the face and produce the desired results. After about three hours of surgery, the incisions will be closed and the treatment will be complete.
What is the Facelift Recovery Like?
After a facelift, we will apply a post-operative garment to facilitate a smooth healing process. It is common to experience swelling, bruising and sensitivity in the treatment area, which may last for a few weeks after treatment. We recommend that patients take at least a week off of work and other normal activities following their procedure, as resting is essential to the recovery process. Exercise and other strenuous activities will also need to be avoided until the healing process is complete.
What Facelift Results Can I Expect?
The results from the facelift procedure will be noticeable immediately, but it may take a few weeks for all swelling to subside and for the full results to become visible. Once the facelift procedure is performed, the results are permanent. However, they cannot prevent the aging process from occurring. Many patients choose to combine a facelift with skin institute treatments to further enhance and maintain their results.
