Dr. Christopher Godek is proud to offer facelift surgery. It is one of the most powerful tools available to a plastic surgeon for the purpose of reversing the visible effects of aging. As you get older, skin loses its elasticity, muscles slacken, and as a result, wrinkles and jowls begin to form. Facelift surgery treats all of these problem areas with the goal of leaving you with skin and facial features that are smooth, refreshed, and rejuvenated.
The Facelift Surgery
The facelift is a highly complex cosmetic enhancement procedure that requires a high-degree of artistry and a proven level of surgical expertise. Dr. Godek begins the procedure with incisions behind the hairline or other locations that are out of plain sight. During the procedure, Dr. Godek will remove excess tissue, fat, and skin. He will then work to reduces wrinkles and other visible signs of aging by tightening the remaining skin and underlying facial muscles. This should ultimately give the face a smoother, more youthful, and refreshed appearance. Dr. Godek takes great care to produce results that look not only beautiful, but also very natural.
A facelift procedure generally lasts between two and three hours, depending on the extent of the surgery.
After the Procedure
Within a few days after facelift surgery, and after you have had time to heal, the dressings and sutures are removed. Bruising and swelling after a facelift procedure are usually minimal, but ultimately depend on the extent of the surgery. In most cases, these side effects diminish within a week or two, at which time normal activities may be resumed.
