The signs of aging usually show up on the face first, and since this can make you look older than your years, it can make you feel self-conscious. There are several reasons for facial aging including excessive exposure to the sun, constantly neglecting your skin and other environmental damage. If changes in your skin such as wrinkles, lines, volume loss, and sagging begin to bother you, it’s time to talk to Dr. Bohley about the facial rejuvenation treatments we offer. Even though we offer different procedures and non-surgical treatments to offer you a refreshed appearance, the facelift procedure remains the gold standard of facial rejuvenation. Dr. Bohley uses the facelift to address the imperfections you may be dealing with, and his aim is to achieve the desired facial balance and harmony.

During your facelift consultation, Dr. Bohley evaluates your skin and the changes you are experiencing before determining if it is the best procedure for you. We offer dramatic results that are long-lasting and appear natural.

Everybody desires dramatic enhancement from cosmetic surgery, but it is important to have realistic expectations right from the beginning. It is certainly not possible to look 20 again with the facelift procedure, but Dr. Bohley has the expertise to take more than a decade off your appearance when he eliminates the lines, wrinkles and skin laxity.

Who is a good candidate for the facelift procedure?

Most of our facelift patients experience sagging skin in the mid-face area and jawline, or they have a loss of volume and muscle tone or are bothered with other aging issues such as a double chin, sagging skin, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines.  During your initial consultation with Dr. Bohley, he will evaluate your skin and muscle tone as well as the different signs of aging before he determines whether the facelift procedure can get you optimal results. Your facelift will be personalized to suit your specific requirements and help you achieve your desired facial rejuvenation.

What scars can you expect after a facelift?

Dr. Bohley makes the incisions around the cheeks and chin, which allows him to get easy access to excessive facial fat and skin. He ensures that these incisions are placed inconspicuously within your hairline and go behind the ears so that you do not have to face any noticeable scarring. Most of the scars from your facelift procedure will fade with time.

What is recovery after a facelift like?

A facelift is an invasive surgical procedure for facial rejuvenation, and you must be prepared to take some time off your work to heal properly. Most patients need about six months to completely recover from the surgery. Right after your surgery, Dr. Bohley recommends that you wear a compression garment for the first two days that will keep the swelling in check. You may have drainage tubes covering your face and scalp to avoid seroma. It is important that your head is kept elevated for the first two weeks. You must also avoid any strenuous activities such as swimming, running, or aerobics for about a month. Dr. Bohley will advise you as to when it is okay to increase your activities when you visit him for your post-surgery follow up appointments.

The facelift procedure enhances your appearance, and Dr. Bohley has the expertise to offer his patients consistently beautiful results. When aging signs are not that severe, you can take advantage of the mini facelift procedure, which offers a faster recovery and the results last for about five years. Whenever you need to touch-up your results in the future, we also offer a range of non-surgical treatments that you can talk about with Dr. Bohley.
