The purpose of the facelift is to re-suspend the structures of the face in order to re-establish a nice youthful jawline, neck and shape to the face. By re-suspending not just skin but the underlying facial tissues, Dr. Stevens is able to obtain a natural and long lasting result.
The procedure can be performed with just an intravenous anesthesia provided by an experienced anesthesiologist and certified nurse anesthesia providers in a certified surgical facility. Return to work and play is typically 10 days although this may vary according to your specific physiology and what other procedures may be performed at the same time.
If you have ever looked in the mirror and pulled up and back on your face we invite you to make a complimentary consultation with Dr. Stevens.
Also, be sure to visit our Active Lift® page, which discusses some of the benefits of a facelift under local anesthesia, with no intravenous sedation.
