Moderate Facial Wrinkles: If the signs of aging are only moderate, you may be a candidate for a minor facelift. You may have fine lines and wrinkles appearing around your mouth, on your cheeks, or the profile of your jaw is beginning to sag. These conditions may be due to excess skin that gravity causes to crease and fold. A less extensive facelift procedure is often the appropriate procedure to resolve moderate facial wrinkles in younger patients.

Severe Facial Wrinkles: When aging has impacted both the facial skin and the deeper structures, affecting the appearance of various facial areas, a facelift can be the best, most effective procedure. Older patients can see remarkable results towards regaining a more youthful appearance with a facelift that remodels the fat and skin, as well as the underlying muscles.

Non-Surgical Treatments: Some facial wrinkles begin to appear early in life, and can be treated with non-surgical methods, including Botox Cosmetic, or other injectables such as Juvederm, Sculptra, or Cosmoplast used as fillers and plumpers. Other non-surgical techniques for facial skin rejuvenation include chemical peels and skin care regimen products that can bring remarkable results, significantly reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles. Lip augmentation is another procedure that could result in a more youthful appearance overall.

People heal at different rates, but the recovery time for a facelift varies based the age of the person and the extent of the surgery. Typically, it may take a month or two until the full benefit of the surgery is totally achieved. Recovery is always a gradual process, and each day brings progress. Be patient, as the rewards are worth it. Taking care of yourself and following Dr. Pfeiffer’s orders carefully will help you to heal more quickly.
