What Is a Facelift & How Does It Work?

A facelift is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to help people reduce the visible signs of aging in the face and neck. Facelift surgery is the best way to rejuvenate the overall appearance of an aging face. It typically involves making incisions along the hairline and around the ears, while also removing excess skin and fat, then tightening facial muscles and repositioning underlying tissue.

We perform the procedure to correct nasolabial fold lines between the nose and mouth, address loose skin and excess fat on the neck, and the loss of youthful contours in the face. When you work with the best facelift surgeon who understands your expectations, your results will reflect enhanced facial contours, a more youthful facial shape, a reduction in skin laxity and tighter facial muscles. The effects of a facelift done by our experienced surgeons are long-lasting but require maintenance with sun protection and continued skin care routines.

How Is the Facelift Procedure Performed?

A facelift is a surgical procedure designed to give your face a more youthful, refreshed appearance and typically involves the following steps:


The patient is administered an anesthetic to make them comfortable during the procedure. The surgeon will also mark areas on the face to indicate where incisions will be made.


The surgeon makes incisions to access underlying tissue and muscles and trim away excess skin. Generally, these cuts are made around the hairline or ears to minimize visible scarring after healing.


The surgeon repositions and tightens facial skin and underlying tissues, as well as removes any fat deposits that may cause sagging or wrinkles. This will restore a more youthful look to the face and jawline.

Closing Incisions

The incision sites are then closed with dissolvable sutures to minimize noticeable scarring when they eventually heal. Additionally, bandages may be applied after the procedure to reduce swelling and bruising.

What to Expect During Recovery?

After your facelift procedure, your face will be bandaged and you may experience some swelling and bruising. Pain is usually manageable with either prescription or over-the-counter medication. Most patients find that within two weeks, swelling and bruising have subsided enough to return to work and engage in social activities. Each patient is unique in their recovery, hence it may take some time before the full effects of your facelift emerge. Be sure to follow all instructions provided by your surgeon for best results.

What Are the Benefits of a Facelift?

Our Boca Raton facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a combination of surgical techniques used to improve signs of aging on the neck and face. Some benefits include:

  • Remove excess skin and submental fat beneath the chin
  • Address sagging in the mid-face area
  • Get rid of fatty deposits
  • Improve the profile of unsightly jowls
  • Achieve a more youthful appearance

Are You an Ideal Candidate?

An individual who displays any of the following signs of aging may prove to be a good candidate for the surgery:

  • Loose skin
  • Volume loss
  • Noticeable facial expression lines
  • Loss of collagen and/or skin elasticity
  • Asymmetrical facial appearance due to aging

What Are the Risks and Side Effects?

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks and side effects. These risks are minimal when working with board-certified plastic surgeons, such as the team at FSIBR. Risks may include:

  • A bad reaction to anesthesia
  • Excess bleeding
  • Slower healing process
  • Facelift scars

How Much Is a Facelift?

The cost of a facelift will vary depending on the specific facelift procedure performed, the experience and qualification of the surgeon, their facilities and location. Facelift costs are discussed in the consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

The surgery can help a patient correct many common signs of aging in different areas of the face, such as:

  • Cheeks: Reduces sagging of the cheeks that often results in an aged and tired appearance
  • Jawline: Removes excess skin on the lower jawline
  • Neck: Eliminates excess fat and sagging skin in the neck

A traditional rhytidectomy does not address the upper portion of the face (the forehead and around the eyes). The team at FSIBR uses a comprehensive facial rejuvenation approach and will discuss any additional complementary surgical procedures that may be needed.

The short answer is that there is no best age! How you age and how well you age depends on different variables, including your genetics, skin quality and texture, and bone structure; thus, the best time for a facelift is unique to your needs.

In general, a rhytidectomy is performed on individuals between the ages of 40 and 80. At your consultation, the doctors will perform a thorough evaluation to determine if you are eligible for surgery, regardless of age. They will generally offer the procedure to a patient if they believe it can be performed safely and will help achieve a balanced, natural-looking facial appearance.

While no surgical procedure will stop aging, if you continue to take good care of your skin and live a healthy lifestyle, your face will continue to look better than if you had never had a facelift procedure! Living a healthy lifestyle, wearing sunscreen daily, avoiding smoking, and eating a diet rich in vitamins and antioxidants are the best ways to maintain healthy, youthful skin.

We know that a natural-looking facelift is the best kind! Thus, friends and family members probably won’t be able to tell if a person has undergone the procedure, as treatment results will appear natural.

Furthermore, even though a rhytidectomy tightens the facial skin, in the hands of expertly trained facial plastic surgeons, it won’t cause the face to appear tight or stretched. Instead, a facelift will help you achieve a natural facial appearance in which the eyes, cheeks, chin, and other facial features appear in perfect harmony.

Our doctors customize each facelift surgery with the anti-aging needs of the patient in mind to help a patient achieve a balanced and natural-looking facial appearance. As a result, we may recommend a combination of procedures in conjunction with facelift surgery techniques to ensure you can achieve the best possible results. Some of these procedures include:

  • Neck Lift: Reduces or removes loose or sagging neck skin, excess fat in the lower face or chin, and other visible signs of aging in the neck
  • Brow Lift: Treats drooping brows and deep wrinkles of the forehead, restoring a smoother, more youthful contour to the upper portion of the face
  • Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty): Eliminates excess skin from the upper eyelids and removes under-eye bags and redundant skin from the lower eyelids
  • Submental Liposuction: Eliminates excess fat causing the appearance of a double chin and improves the contours of the chin and jawline
  • Botox: Smooths fine lines, wrinkles, and furrows caused by excessive muscle movements
  • Dermal Fillers: Enhances the facial appearance without surgery by restoring volume to create a more youthful facial contour
  • Radiofrequency Microneedling: A minimally invasive treatment that uses the Morpheus8 device from InMode to deliver radiofrequency energy into the deepest layers of the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production to reduce wrinkles and improve skin tone

The aforementioned procedures may be performed on their own or in conjunction with facelift surgery. Schedule a comprehensive cosmetic consultation with our team to determine which procedure or treatment combinations can help you achieve your desired facial rejuvenation goals. We serve patients throughout Boca Raton Florida, Palm Beach, and Palm Beach County.
