The aging process can cause the skin, fat, and muscles in the face to sag, keeping us from looking as energetic and vibrant as we feel inside. Fellowship-trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Prem Tripathi performs facelift surgery in Livermore to restore a more youthful appearance to these areas. If you’re interested in a facelift and live in or around Walnut Creek, Danville, Pleasanton, or San Ramon, he can help you to turn back the clock on your facial appearance.
Dr. Tripathi uses a trained aesthetic eye and meticulous techniques to create age-appropriate results that look natural and maintain your unique facial features, so you look like a younger and more refreshed version of you.
A facelift elevates and repositions the tissues in the lower two-thirds of the face to restore a youthful shape and contours. It’s often combined with a neck lift to address loose neck skin. Dr. Tripathi performs a deep-plane facelift that addresses the deeper tissues of the face. This creates a more natural-looking result than other methods that rely primarily on tightening the skin.
In addition, Dr. Tripathi also performs lower face/neck lifts and midline neck lifts to address sagging or drooping that may occur in these areas. During your consultation, he’ll discuss each option with you and create a custom treatment plan to address your concerns.
An ideal facelift candidate is someone who is experiencing sagging or jowling and would like to look about 10 years younger. It’s important to note a facelift does not address signs of aging in the upper face. If you’re looking to correct drooping or bags in the eyelids, Dr. Tripathi can combine your procedure with [link pid=”103″]eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)[/link] for more comprehensive rejuvenation.
Facelift surgery is performed while you are under general anesthesia with sedation. During the surgery, Dr. Tripathi makes well-concealed incisions around your ears. He elevates and reshapes the underlying facial tissues and trims away any excess skin for a smoother, firmer facial appearance.
Most people return to work after about 10 to 14 days. During the initial recovery period, you’ll likely experience some swelling and bruising. Swelling typically subsides over several weeks with full results developing after a few months.
While no procedure can stop the aging process altogether, a facelift can visually turn back the clock by about 10 years. You can extend your results with nonsurgical options such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or dermal fillers.
The cost of a facelift or neck lift varies depending on factors such as the approach, the complexity of the procedure, and whether you choose to combine your surgery with other treatments.
