The Visage Facelift
A FACELIFT is a cosmetic procedure used to give a more youthful
appearance to the lower face and neck and can be performed under local
anesthesia, sedation or general anesthesia. The procedure usually
takes about 2 hours. Swelling and bruising usually subsides fairly
quickly, allowing most patients to return to work in two weeks.
Those interested in a facelift often think the
procedure is something for an older person. But, San Francisco plastic
surgery and facelift expert Alexander Rabinovich, MD, DDS,
board-certified surgeon, says there is no certain age for a facelift.
People in their 30s and 40s may also be excellent candidates for the
Dr. Rabinovich gets natural-looking results for his many patients with
a complete facelift procedure. However, several shorter facial
rejuvenations are available in addition to the full facelift. While a
facelift does not stop the aging process, it is designed to “set back
the clock”. A facelift can be done alone or in conjunction with other
procedures such as forehead (brow) lift, upper and lower eyelid
surgery, injectable dermal fillers, or fat transfer.
Most facelifts take two to three hours, depending on complexity. Many
more patients who undergo a facelift in San Francisco, Palo Alto, and
elsewhere are opting to forego general anesthesia and have a local,
sometimes with I.V. sedation.
After a facelift, swelling typically disappears within a few days
while most bruises are gone within a few weeks. Results usually last
seven or more years. You will look younger and more refreshed, with a
vastly improved appearance to the lower face and neck. Please call
