Facelift FAQs

What can a Facelift do for me?

A facelift at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery lifts and tightens the lower part of your face and neck, creating a more defined jaw line, reducing jowls, and restoring your youthful appearance.

Is a Facelift the same thing as a thread or feather lift?

No. We have seen many patients who previously had a thread or feather lift and were not happy with the results. In a thread lift, strands of suture are used to accomplish the entire lift. A facelift uses a “pulley stitch” (designed for extra lifting strength) and proven surgical principles which result in a superb lift with a small incision.

Is the procedure painful?

No. It is minimally invasive. We can actually perform the procedure under local anesthesia.

Can a Simplicity Lift be combined with other procedures?

Certainly. Many patients choose to have a facelift in combination with a brow lift, laser skin resurfacing, eyelid surgery, or neck lift.

How long is the recovery period?

We call it a “weekend recovery.” Most patients recover in a few days to a week as opposed to the several weeks required by a traditional facelift.

Can I get a Facelift from any cosmetic surgeon?

No. The facelift technique is utilized by Dr. Dominic in an effort to provide maximum benefits with minimal surgery and downtime. It is unique to Elite Facial Plastic Surgery.
