Best facelift surgeon in Miami
At Miami Plastic Surgery®, we specialize in advanced surgical techniques to provide the best plastic surgery offerings in the area. One of the most popular services we offer at our Miami practice is the rhytidectomy, more commonly known as the facelift. We'll be happy to book you for a consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons whenever you're ready to get started.
What Is A Facelift?
The colloquial term for rhytidectomy came about because this surgery lifts sagging skin on the lower half of your face. A plastic surgeon will tighten the skin around the chin, jaw and cheekbones to give your skin a smoother, healthier and younger appearance.
Facelifts are one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed around the world, and there have been incredible developments in technique and procedure that allow for a more natural look and a faster healing time. In just a few weeks, you'll be ready to make your debut with a younger appearance that highlights the most beautiful parts of you.
The team at Miami Plastic Surgery® includes some of the country's leading facelift surgeons who specialize in advanced techniques and exceptional deliveries. Explore our results gallery and see why we've earned our reputation as one of the best rhytidectomy locations in Miami.
Who Should Get a Facelift?
Our surgeons want you to feel comfortable in your skin, and sometimes, the best way to do that is through a facelift. If you deal with any of the following conditions, a rhytidectomy is an excellent option to restore your confidence:
- Loose skin around the cheeks and jawline.
- Deep lines, wrinkles and creases around the face and neck, especially between the nose and mouth.
- Having good physical and emotional health and a support system to help them recover.
The Facelift Process
Before we start your procedure, we'll sit down with you for a consultation. During this time, we'll review your medical history and perform an evaluation to ensure you're a good candidate for our services. We'll also talk in-depth about what you hope to get from a facelift and the kind of results you're looking for. Once we agree to move forward, we'll take your “before” shots for medical records.
On the day of the surgery, our team will talk with you one last time to ensure we're all on the same page about your treatment. We'll answer any last-minute questions and make sure you're prepared for post-operative care. Then, we can get started with our minimally invasive surgery, making incisions along your hairline and other easily-hidden places. Our expertise helps you get the most natural results possible while tightening loose skin and removing excess fat.
Side Effects of Face Surgery
As with any surgery, getting a facelift can come with some post-operative side effects. The usual recovery time for a facelift is about a month, with most of the significant healing happening within the first two weeks. During this time, patients report effects like:
- Cold sweat
- Heart palpitations
The last two symptoms are often due to the inability to communicate over the first few days of recovery. We often advise patients to avoid visits and overusing face muscles until they have some time to heal. Having some of your favorite activities, shows and hobbies readily available can be a welcome distraction.
