Face and Neck Lift
What is it?
Facelifts are a very common request among those people that are unhappy with the sagging skin of the cheeks, around the mouth, and the neck. This surgery not only pulls back the skin but also tightens the muscle layer deep under the skin which provides long lasting results. The incisions hide in the side burn and/or around the ear. At times this can be coupled with fat transfer to the cheek region to restore volume. A surgery that is extremely impactful for the patient.
Am I a candidate?
Candidates must have enough skin laxity to warrant a facelift. Other medical problems such as high blood pressure must be well controlled and the patient must be at least 3 months nicotine free.
Before & Afters
What is recovery like?
Recovery after a face and neck lift involves a head wrap for 24 hours. Dr. Hartmann does not routinely use a drain. At the first week follow up visit the front sutures will be removed and, on the second week visit, the back sutures will be removed. Restrictions are approximately 2 weeks without exertional activity and then a return to gym activities at 6 weeks. You will have to sleep on your back for 6 weeks as well.
