What is a facelift?

While younger patients in their 30s and 40s may be able to stave off signs of aging using non-surgical treatments and an at-home skincare regimen, those approaching their 50s and 60s usually desire a procedure that brings more lasting and dramatic changes. A surgical facelift can address midface sagging, a drooping jawline, jowls, lax muscles, and wrinkled skin, restoring an appearance that better reflects the beauty of your inner spirit. In the hands of our qualified facelift experts, your results will look effortless, natural, and revitalizing.

What are the advantages of a facelift?

Facelift surgery comes with numerous benefits, both aesthetic and emotional. The procedure can help patients to feel like themselves again – confident, secure, and attractive. Advantages include:

  • Trims sagging excess skin
  • Firms the underlying facial muscles
  • Corrects howling
  • Enhances definition in the jawline
  • Smooths away wrinkles and lines
  • Improves the look of nasolabial folds
  • Leads to a long-lasting transformation
  • Elegant, customized outcome

Who makes a good facelift candidate?

For patients who have exhausted non-surgical solutions for the signs of aging, a facelift can bring welcome relief from drooping skin, sinking contours, wrinkles, and loss of lower face definition. Our team will meet with you for a private, in-depth consultation to listen to your concerns and assess your candidacy for surgery. 

At this initial meeting, we will analyze your skin quality, review your medical history, and begin to formulate a unique treatment plan that meets your needs. Patients will receive access to advanced imaging technology that can predict their outcomes and show them what is possible with facelift surgery. 

In general, ideal candidates for a facelift in Newport Beach are in good mental and physical health, do not smoke, and have realistic expectations for their results. We invite you to schedule a consultation today to learn more!

What will my recovery entail?

After facelift surgery, your face will be dressed in a bandage and you will receive detailed aftercare instructions along with prescriptions for pain medications. Any sutures will be removed within 5-10 days. Drains may be placed to help escort excess fluids out of the body as you heal.

At first, patients will encounter bruising, swelling, and soreness. These symptoms are normal and will gradually fade within 1-2 weeks. For the first few days, it may be difficult to open your mouth fully. You may also experience some temporary numbness in the skin near your incisions.

In general, most patients will fully recover in 4-6 weeks. Full results of the surgery should not be assessed until the 6-month mark. Our caring team will be on hand every step of the way during your healing process so don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Will a facelift make me look unnatural in any way?

What will my facelift scars look like?

Our award-winning, board-certified plastic surgeons will place your incisions in areas where scarring will be the least noticeable after surgery. Incisions are typically created in the natural folds next to the ears, extending behind the ears and into the scalp. Proper incision placement takes great skill and artistry and this is an area where our providers excel.

How long will the results last?

The longevity of your facelift results depends on many factors, including your age, your overall health, and your exposure to harmful UV rays. In general, patients will enjoy a rejuvenated, refreshed appearance for at least 10-15 years. If needed, a revision procedure can be performed when the time comes.

How much does a facelift cost?

Facelift surgery in Newport Beach typically starts at around $17,790. We do not provide quotes over the internet, since each procedure is highly customized. However, we can provide pricing details after your private consultation and physical evaluation. Our office can assist with applying for up to 24-month financing. You can prequalify for financing in just minutes.

Will insurance cover a facelift procedure?

Since a facelift is considered a cosmetic procedure and not a medically necessary operation, insurance companies usually do not cover the costs. We do, however, offer financing options to help you undergo the treatments you desire today rather than having to wait. We can discuss pricing and financing in more depth during your private consultation in Orange County.

Will a facelift make me look unnatural in any way?

In the past, surgical techniques were more crude and surgeons simply pulled the skin tight without addressing the underlying layers of tissue and muscle. This created a stretched appearance that looked unnatural. Today, our team at CosmetiCare utilizes an advanced approach that preserves facial spontaneity and individuality so you can enjoy effortless beauty and rejuvenation.
