A Word from Your Facelift & Neck Lift Specialist

The facial skin and muscles can become stretched by weight fluctuations or simply with age. A face lift can restore youthful firmness to the face, and restore self-confidence. When a person is able to look in the mirror and see a younger-looking face, it can change their entire outlook. It can change how young they feel.

Why a facelift or neck lift may be right for me

Does your face reflect more years than you've lived? If you have wrinkles or loose skin in the lower face that cannot be corrected with fillers or injectables, and if you are ready to love what you see in the mirror, you may benefit from a neck lift or face lift by Tucson specialist Dr. Rao.

My procedure

Facelift/neck lift is an outpatient procedure that generally involves strategically placed incisions hidden in the hairline or blended to the natural shape of the face and ears. Typically, facial tissue and muscles are tightened. The treatment may involve liposuction of the neck or fat transfer in areas with lost volume and skin laxity.

My recovery process

Usually recovery requires about 10 to 14 days. After about a week, many of the stitches are removed. Most bruising fades after about 2 weeks and swelling after a few months. Incision lines clear up in about 6 months.

My results

Final results will become apparent after several months, revealing your firmer skin with fewer wrinkles and a rejuvenated, youthful look.
