Your face is the first thing anybody notices about you. Aging, excessive exposure to the sun, and constant neglect can make you look older than how you feel. Rather than allow this to affect your self-confidence, schedule a consultation with Dr. Bohley. We offer a range of facial rejuvenation procedures that help offer a lift to your facial features. The gold standard in facial procedures, however, is the facelift procedure. Dr. Bohley and his team have the experience to help you address a variety of aesthetic concerns and offer you the required facial harmony.

Everybody has to go through facial aging and when these changes become too apparent, you must go through all the cosmetic options available to you. Everybody who desires a change in their facial appearance has considered the facelift procedure as the perfect way for skin rejuvenation and to restore youthfulness. You can achieve dramatic results that last long and appear natural.

What do you expect from a facelift?

Everybody seeks dramatic enhancement from a cosmetic procedure, but you must ensure that you understand the procedure well enough to keep realistic expectations. Even after your facelift, you will not look like you are 20 again. If you have skin laxity, deep lines and dynamic wrinkles on your face, these can be addressed effectively with the facelift procedure.

Am I a good candidate for the facelift?

If you are struggling with sagging skin in the jawline and midface area, have experienced volume loss and loss of muscle tone, have a double chin or facial lines like the nasolabial folds (from your nose to the mouth) and marionette lines (from your mouth to the chin), then a facelift will be beneficial for you. During your consultation with Dr. Bohley, he will recommend the facelift procedure in case you have these aging signs. He ensures that you get optimal results from a personalized treatment that is tailored to suit your specific facial changes and desired aesthetic goals.

What scars can you get from a facelift?

During the procedure, your incisions will be made around the cheeks and chin so that Dr. Bohley has access to the excessive skin and fat for removal. He ensures that these incisions are made within your hairline and behind your ears so that any scars remain well hidden. Most of these scars will ultimately fade away with time.

What will be your recovery like?

A facelift is a more invasive procedure than other facial rejuvenation procedures, and you must be prepared to take some time off work for a full recovery. Complete healing from your facelift may take about 6 months. You may have to wear a compression garment for the first two days, and there might be drainage tubes put in place. It is important that you keep your head in an elevated position for about two weeks so that the swelling can be kept in control. You will also be advised to avoid strenuous activities like swimming, running, or lifting heavy objects for about four weeks.

Once you can see your results, you will find that it has enhanced your youthful appearance. The results of your facelift depend entirely on the expertise of your surgeon, and that is why Dr. Bohley is sought after for the exceptional results he offers. If the signs of aging on your face are less severe, he will use a mini facelift procedure that offers a faster recovery with results that will last up to five years. The full facelift may mean a longer recovery period, but your results last for more than 10 years.
