An expertly performed facelift can “set back the clock” and make you look younger, more rested and rejuvenated. It is designed to soften and smooth the deep lines from the corners of the nose and mouth, correct the jowls along the edge of the jaw line and tighten the excess sagging skin of the neck. Facelift surgery is best left to experienced and talented plastic surgeons that are well-versed in advanced techniques to improve the tone of the skin and the definition of the features.

Am I a Candidate for Facelift?
You may be a candidate for facelift if you are showing visible signs of aging, including deep wrinkles, loss of volume in the cheeks, jowls, and loose skin in the lower face and neck area.
The first step to pursuing facelift is to meet with Dr. Katz for an informational consultation. Dr. Katz will examine your face, noting the severity of your wrinkles, skin softness and excess skin. He will inquire about your ideal cosmetic outcome, and use this information to put together a treatment plan that outlines his projected approach. This treatment plan will guide him during the procedure to achieve a desired outcome that is both natural and youthful looking.
What Happens During Surgery?
There are several approaches to the facelift procedure. Dr. Katz will adjust his techniques depending on your unique needs.
What Is the Recovery Like?
Minor bruising, swelling, and slight discomfort are common in the days following surgery. Any pain can be alleviated with prescription oral medication. The side effects will subside within a week or two.
Dr. Katz will schedule several follow-up visits during recovery to check the healing progress, remove sutures and advise when to return to work, exercise, and other normal activities. He will also provide detailed instructions for caring for the incisions, taking medications to prevent infection, and restrictions on activity. It is important to follow all of these instructions to reduce the risk of developing post-operative complications.
