Do You Need a Facelift?   

Whether you need a facelift—and the type of surgery most appropriate for you—will depend on your degree of facial aging. A standard facelift addresses the neck and lower two-thirds of the face, while extended facelifts will also typically reposition and rejuvenate the forehead and brows if needed. 

Patients seeking to reduce wrinkles around the eyes and mouth without treating the jowl and neck area may be better suited to a mid facelift. This procedure involves shorter incisions and allows our patients to enjoy a quicker recovery time. It is also a cornerstone of many facial makeovers that combine eyelid surgery or a brow lift.   

In some cases, patients may only need a neck lift. This isolated surgery is completed entirely from an incision below the chin. It is reserved for specific patients, usually women in their 30s and 40s and men of most ages, who don’t have extensive aging above the neck.   

If you are bothered by sagging skin, volume loss, or wrinkles in the face and neck or are experiencing jowling, a facelift or neck lift can create smoother and more youthful contours.

An Investment Worth Making

While everyone loves a good bargain, plastic surgery is one area where you can’t afford to cut corners based on cost. Quick fixes and low prices may seem tempting, but they usually result in disappointment—not to mention the potential for costly complex revision surgery to correct a subpar outcome.

“Investing in the best care from the outset produces the best outcomes and can even save you money in the long run.”   

Dr. Simeon Wall Jr. 

Our facelift prices reflect an investment in comprehensive techniques that are technically demanding and may take more time. We use these techniques because they produce longer-lasting, more satisfying, and more natural-looking results. We also spend as much time as needed to hide the evidence of surgery for precise, discreet results.  

With our range of patient financing options, your face lift at The Wall Center is more affordable than ever. We work with Alphaeon®, CareCredit®, and PatientFi® to offer customized payment plans to suit your budget.   

Your Facelift Experience 

In addition to our plastic surgeons’ skills and expertise, The Wall Center offers a white-glove patient experience from start to finish. Our Patient Concierge Program provides world-class travel support and ensures that every visit with us is as smooth and enjoyable as possible. We even have luxury guest suites on-site so that you can recover in comfort with the peace of mind that comes from optional round-the-clock medical care.  

During your consultation, our surgeons will answer your questions and address your concerns regarding the facelift procedure. They can also give you a realistic idea of your results based on your skin condition and bone structure. There is never any pressure to make a decision at your consultation. Our plastic surgeons will truly take the time to listen to you, understand your goals, and advise you on what they think is best for you.  

Preparing for Your Facelift

We will provide you with educational materials to help you make an informed decision about your treatment and understand what to expect. Once you feel comfortable moving forward with surgery, we will schedule your procedure and help you prepare for your face lift.   

Preoperative instructions and guidelines may include:   

  • Growing out shorter hair to help conceal incisions in the hairline   
  • Stop taking blood-thinning medications and supplements 2 or more weeks before surgery   
  • Abstaining from any nicotine usage for at least 4 weeks before and 6 weeks after surgery   
  • Filling all medications in advance   
  • Arranging for help with child care or chores during your recovery period   
  • Setting up a recovery “nest” at your home with helpful items in easy reach    

Your Facelift Surgery

Just like fingerprints, each face is entirely unique. Therefore, incisions and techniques will vary with each patient in order to achieve the desired results. Our surgeons will create a detailed plan for your facelift, taking into account your facial anatomy, the extent of skin laxity and sagging present, and your aesthetic goals.  

Differences between facelift and mini facelift incisions
A full facelift will have incisions just at the hairline at the temples

A mid facelift will have incisions around the eyes only

To enhance your results, our surgeons may also incorporate micro-fat grafting using Dr. Wall Jr.’s SAFELipo technique to collect fat from a donor site. The fat is then purified and transferred to the face using another of Dr. Wall Jr.’s innovations: expansion vibration lipofilling (EVL). Your surgeon can restore volume to the mid face and temples and promote more youthful contours to complement your facelift.  

Facelift Recovery

Full facelift patients typically need 3 weeks before they feel comfortable being seen in public, while mid facelift patients usually need only 1. Regardless of which procedure you choose, the following can aid your recovery.  

What You May Experience   

  • Swelling and Bruising: Swelling and bruising are most pronounced in the first few days after surgery. While these aftereffects generally subside within a week, the residual swelling (the last 10% or so) may require several months to dissipate fully.   
  • Discomfort: Some discomfort and pain are common early on, but you can easily manage discomfort with prescription pain medication.   
  • Numbness and Tightness: You may experience numbness or tightness in the face as sensory nerves start to regenerate and reconnect with the skin and underlying tissues. These are typically temporary side effects, with improvement in sensation continuing over several weeks or months.   

What You Should Do   

  • Take It Slow: Do not engage in strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and bending over for a few weeks. We may also ask you to limit your facial expressions to avoid putting strain on the incisions and newly positioned facial tissues.   
  • Keep Your Head Elevated: Maintain an upright position when awake and keep your head elevated at a 30 to 45-degree angle while asleep to reduce swelling and promote fluid drainage. Sleep on your back with your head propped up for the first few weeks to support healing and prevent pressure on the face.   
  • Be Careful When Bathing: You can start bathing (except for the face) within the first day or 2 after surgery. Avoid getting your incisions wet, and keep the water lukewarm or cool, as hot water can increase swelling and discomfort. Your surgeon will let you know when it is safe to wash your face near the incision sites.   
  • Protect Your Skin From the Sun: Limiting sun exposure, wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen daily, and using gentle skincare products can aid healing and minimize scarring.   

Our surgeons personally respond to patient calls and are always happy to help if you have any questions or concerns.

Your Facelift Results

The final result of your facelift is a fresher version of your old self. While some people fear that they will look overly tight and windblown, the reality is that a talented plastic surgeon will be able to create results that look natural and soft.   

The procedure can erase several years from your face, and the effect can last for up to 10 years, depending on the condition and elasticity of your skin. While the surgery doesn’t stop aging, you will continue to look younger than if you had never had a facelift.  

To extend the longevity of your face lift, we advise you to use medical-grade skincare products, protect your skin from the sun, and live a healthy lifestyle. Many patients also choose nonsurgical treatments through our Jade Medispa to improve the quality and texture of the skin and reduce wrinkles.   

Even long after your last follow-up appointment, we still consider you a part of our Wall Center family. Once you are a patient, you become a patient for life. Discover what some of our facelift patients say about their experience below.  

Other Facial Rejuvenation Options

If you are experiencing early signs of facial aging but aren’t yet ready for surgery, The Wall Center can still help you achieve glowing, more youthful-looking skin. Our Jade Medispa offers Genius® RF microneedling, which stimulates collagen production and offers skin-tightening benefits. 

Patients seeking smoother, fuller skin may also benefit from a “liquid facelift,” a nonsurgical approach to facial rejuvenation that combines BOTOX® Cosmetic with dermal fillers.

During your consultation, our surgeons will cover your options in-depth and guide you to the treatments that are right for you. They will take the time to understand your cosmetic goals and work with you to create a customized plan to achieve them.

Facelift FAQ
Is there an ideal age to undergo a facelift?

There is no “right” age for a facelift, as the decision to undergo the procedure depends on an individual’s unique aging process and goals. While many consider a facelift in their 40s to 60s, some may opt for it earlier or later. 

How does a facelift differ from a “liquid facelift”?  

Facelift surgery provides more comprehensive and long-lasting results by addressing sagging skin and underlying muscle laxity. Dermal fillers and BOTOX (or another neuromodulator) can enhance specific facial features and temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles. While these non-surgical options are effective for certain concerns, they do not provide the same level of lifting and tightening as a surgical facelift.  

When should I choose a mid facelift over a full facelift?  

If you primarily want to address sagging cheeks and aging in the mid face (which covers the area between your lower eyelid and upper lip), a mid facelift may be the more suitable option. However, if you have more extensive signs of aging, including on the lower face and neck, a full facelift offers more comprehensive rejuvenation.  

Will I need another facelift later in life?  

Unless there is a complication with your initial facelift or you are dissatisfied with your results, you typically won’t need a secondary procedure. However, some patients elect to have a second facelift when they feel the aging process affects the quality of their initial results. If you are considering a second facelift or want to explore ways to prolong your results, please get in touch, and we would be happy to discuss your options with you.
