Do I Need a Facelift?

Your face is the first thing anybody notices about you. When years of exposure to the sun and other environmental factors add up with continued neglect, the result is early signs of aging on your face that affect your appearance and confidence equally. Our team offers a range of facial rejuvenation procedures to help you restore the youthful appearance of your facial features. The gold standard of all facial rejuvenation procedures is the facelift procedure. Dr. Bohley and his team are experienced to help you with different facial concerns so that you achieve the desired harmony to your face.

Facial aging is an inevitable truth nobody can hide from but when these changes begin to bother you, talk to Dr. Bohley about your aesthetic options. Almost everybody who has gone through this has considered a facelift to rejuvenate their skin and restore its youthfulness. You can get dramatic results that last long with a facelift, however, it is essential that you keep realistic expectations from the procedure. Even after your facelift procedure, it is impossible to look 20 again. If you have skin laxity, deep lines, and dynamic wrinkles, these will be eliminated after a facelift.

Am I a Good Candidate for A Facelift?

If you are suffering from sagging in your jawline and the mid-face area, have lost volume and muscle tone, suffering from a double chin, sagging skin, or facial lines like nasolabial folds and marionette lines, a facelift will get you the best results. During your consultation with Dr. Bohley, he will recommend the procedure if you have these signs and personalize the best technique to help you eliminate undesirable facial changes and achieve your cosmetic goals.

What Kind of Incisions Are Used for A Facelift?

During your facelift, the incisions are usually made around the cheeks and chin so that any excess fat and skin can be removed. Dr. Bohley makes sure that these incisions are made within your hairline and behind the ears so that any scars remain well hidden.  Most of your scars will fade away with time but some may always remain with you.

What Will the Recovery Be Like?

A facelift is a more invasive procedure than other facial rejuvenation procedures, and you will be required to take some time off your work for complete recovery. It may take about 6 months for you to completely heal, and Dr. Bohley recommends that you do not engage in any strenuous activities for the first month. This includes swimming, running, or other athletic activities. You may also have to wear a compression garment for the first two days after the procedure and you will have drainage tubes. You should keep your head in an elevated position for about two weeks so that any swelling can be kept in control.

You can be assured of a rejuvenated appearance from your facelift procedure since Dr. Bohley is sought after for the exceptional results he offers. When you suffer from aging signs that are less severe, he may choose the mini facelift procedure for you, which offers a faster recovery and smaller incisions. The results from this will last for about 5 years, while the results from a full facelift could last beyond 10 years.
