Improving Your Confidence, Improving Your Life
Though a facelift can’t stop the aging process, the procedure can slow it down, improving the most visible signs of aging by tightening underlying muscles, removing excess tissue and re-draping skin of the face and neck. At CosmetiCare, our plastic surgery specialists understand that achieving the look you want can help you live the life you want.

Face LIft Surgery Experience with Dr. von Maur at CosmetiCare
FacelIft Surgery Experience with Dr. von Maur at CosmetiCare
Am I a Candidate?
Men and women whose lower face (cheeks and jowls) and neck skin have begun to sag making them look older and tired.
Those patients who wish to soften the effect of wrinkles in the face and neck and create a stronger, more well-defined jawline.
Patients who undergo a facelift are typically 40 to 60 years old; however, surgery is successfully performed on patients in their seventies.
When Can I Get Back to My Everyday Routine?
You will be able to resume your everyday activities after two weeks but must continue to avoid straining, bending and lifting.
More strenuous exercise is allowed after four to six weeks.
You’ll want to also avoid exposure to direct sunlight initially. To help maintain your new youthful look, we encourage you to apply sunscreen every day.
Most importantly, get plenty of rest and focus on healing.
How Will I Look & Feel Afterwards?
You’ll be able to get up and move around in a day or two but will have to take it easy the first week.
You may temporarily have a small thin tube (drain) inserted behind your ear to help collect any residual bleeding.
Like any surgery, you can expect some discomfort, which can be controlled with pain medication.
You will experience swelling, bruising, numbness, tenderness and tightness of the skin. This will begin to subside within 10 to 14 days. Generally, the greatest amount of swelling occurs 24 to 48 hours after surgery. However, it may be several weeks before all swelling and numbness subsides.
Any bandages and drains will be removed usually within one to five days after surgery
Swelling may be more pronounced in some areas of your face than others. Because of this, you may notice some temporary asymmetry or unevenness, which is normal. Your surgeon will probably ask you to sleep with your head elevated for a few days after surgery to keep swelling down.
Approximately one week following surgery, your stitches will be removed.
Healing is such a gradual process and most people must be extremely patient while waiting for the final outcome of their new look. Your face may continue to change even several months after surgery.

Verified Patient Reviews
On December 18, 2018, I had a lower face lift at CosmetiCare. Dr. Brian Reagan was my surgeon. Barely three weeks out, I am healing well and confident that the vision Dr. Reagan and I discussed will be realized. Everyone at CosmetiCare was delightful to work with and genuinely invested in my happy result. Any and all questions were welcomed, answered patiently and followed up quickly. The team at CosmetiCare is fantastic. As for Dr. Reagan, I can’t say enough about his skill, professionalism and energy. He was positive and excited about my face from our first moments together. Dr. Reagan is an artist as well as an accomplished and focused surgeon and I fully recommend his expertise to others.
When my daughter was getting married, my eyes were kind of sagging and I looked tired and old. I’d always considered getting facial work done to be a vanity, but as the mother of the bride, I wanted to look good. So I overcame my resistance and went to CosmetiCare for non-surgical med spa treatments, which lifted my eyes and made me look young again. I looked so much better that people said I looked as young and beautiful as the bride. I have pictures of the wedding that I look at everyday to remind myself of how magical it was. I’ve been going to CosmetiCare for treatments every six months since then and I am still glowing.
I am completely happy with my refreshed looking eyes and repaired chin area. Dr. Reagan and his staff are caring professionals who listened to my concerns and reassured me each step of the way. I have already recommended Dr. Reagan to friends and family who are considering “having something done!” The entire experience was exceptional!
I applied Arnica gel to the bruises 3 times a day and it cleared them up quickly. No bruising at all by Day 12. I just covered the scars by my ears with my hair and went back to work with no issues at all. I can’t recommend doing this under local enough. Why go through general if you don’t need to! Dr. Reagan has totally perfected this procedure to make it as easy and painless as possible and you get fantastic, natural looking results.
