The first aging signs usually show up on your face and make you look older than your years. There are many reasons for facial aging including excessive sun exposure, constant neglect, and other environmental damage. If changes in your skin such as the wrinkles, lines, volume loss, and sagging begin to make you self-conscious, it is time to talk to Dr. Bohley about facial rejuvenation. Even though we offer several procedures and even non-surgical treatments to refresh your facial appearance, the facelift procedure remains the gold standard of facial rejuvenation. Dr. Bohley uses it to address the imperfections you may be dealing with so that you can get the facial balance and harmony you have always desired.

During your facelift consultation, Dr. Bohley will evaluate your skin and the changes you are experiencing before determining if the facelift procedure can help restore your youthful appearance. We offer you dramatic results that appear natural and last long.

Everybody desires dramatic enhancement from cosmetic surgery, but you must set realistic expectations right from the beginning. Dr. Bohley has the expertise to take more than a decade off by eliminating fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity with the facelift procedure.

Are you a good candidate for the facelift procedure?

When you have sagging skin in your midface area and your jawline, volume and muscle tone loss, or are bothered with other aging issues such as a double chin, sagging skin, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines, a facelift will help you the most in achieving your desired results. During your initial consultation with Dr. Bohley, he will evaluate your skin and muscle tone as well as the aging signs before he determines whether the facelift procedure can get you optimal results. Your facelift will be customized to suit your specific needs and help you achieve your desired facial rejuvenation.

What kind of scars will you get?

Dr. Bohley will make your incisions around the cheeks and chin so that he gets easy access to the excessive fat and skin. He ensures that your incisions are well hidden within the hairline and behind the ears so that there is no visible scarring. Most of the scars from a facelift will fade with time.

What’s expected during recovery?

The facelift is an invasive procedure for facial rejuvenation, and you must be prepared to take some time off your work for proper healing. Most patients require about six months to completely recover from the procedure. Immediately after your surgery, Dr. Bohley recommends that you wear a compression garment for the first two days to help with the swelling. There may be drainage tubes in place to help avoid complications. You should keep your head elevated for two weeks and avoid any strenuous activities, including exercise routines, for about a month. Dr. Bohley will advise you as to when it is okay to increase your activities during the post-surgery follow up appointments.

The facelift procedure enhances your appearance, and Dr. Bohley has the expertise to offer his patients consistently stunning results that completely refresh your look. When the signs of aging are less severe, you may benefit more from a mini facelift procedure, which offers a faster recovery. Where the results of a full facelift usually last for a decade or more, the results of your mini facelift typically last for five years. Whenever you wish to enhance your results in the future, we also offer a range of non-surgical treatments that you can talk about with Dr. Bohley.
