Face Lift

Many of our potential Facelift patients complain that though they feel young and vibrant in spirit, those feelings aren’t reflected in their facial appearance. For that reason, the Facelift is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed in the country. This procedure can improve confidence and help patients enjoy a fuller life.

Facelift surgery is the gold standard for minimizing signs of aging, stress, gravity and sunexposure. A Facelift is one of the most complex plastic surgery procedures and requires the skill of a seasoned professional. Our team of skillful, plastic surgeons at The South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery has been performing this advanced procedure for more than 15 years, resulting in thousands of satisfied patients.

Several techniques are used to perform a facelift. However, our cosmetic surgeons will explain the different approaches with you prior to your procedure.

    The Face Lift Process


    During your initial visit, expect to provide your complete medical history, including all your medications, allergies, and previous surgeries. You’ll also undergo an extensive physical exam and blood tests before your surgeon takes photographs to aid in planning and performing your Facelift. Finally, you’ll receive important instructions to prepare for treatment, as well as a realistic explanation of the results you can expect to achieve.


    Facelift surgery will begin with an incision to enable your surgeon to lift facial skin. Then, fat is either trimmed or suctioned and underlying muscle tightened. Excess facial skin is then pulled, trimmed and sutured into place.


    After surgery, you will experience some discomfort once your anesthesia wears off. Our goal is to keep you as comfortable as possible. So, your surgeon will provide you with medication to mitigate any pain and soreness. A bandage and tiny surgical drains will remain in place for the first night after your procedure, then removed the following morning. Some swelling and discoloration are expected following your facelift. However, this usually subsides within 10-14 days.

    Post Surgery

    Most people return to work and their usual activity within ten days. Jogging, aerobics, bicycling, and other non-contact sports are permitted three weeks after the procedure.

    Face Lift Testimonials

    Beverly M.

    “I had a facelift one month ago with Dr Alexander and couldn’t be happier. I was very nervous coming from out of town, it is my face. Thank you South Florida Center for making me look 15 years younger.”

    – Beverly M.

    Facelift surgery is performed as an outpatient surgery. Generally, your surgeon will lift and reposition facial skin to achieve a firmer, more vibrant appearance.

    Your initial visit with your surgeon will help you prepare for your procedure and get an idea of what to expect during recovery. Your surgeon will also perform a complete physical examination, take blood tests, and take photos of your treatment area during the consultation. Feel free to talk to your doctor about the exact look you are hoping to achieve and any questions you have about your procedure.

    Operating time varies depending on the extent of your procedure(s). Most of our facelift patients are finished with their procedure in about two hours.

    Our professional M.D. Anesthesiologist always administers general anesthesia for all surgical procedures.

    Yes. However, it will be necessary that you have someone to pick you up after the procedure, take you home, and monitor you for at least 24 hours.

    Most people return to work and can resume their regular activities within ten days. Jogging, aerobics, bicycling and other non-contact sports are permitted three weeks after the procedure.

    Health, as opposed to age, is the criteria used in determining if a patient is a good candidate for Facelift surgery. Healthy individuals can undergo a Facelift well into their eighties.

    Actual results are dependant upon the individual as everyone ages at a different rate. However, the results of a Facelift generally result in the patient appearing 5-10 years younger.
