"A Facelift Procedure That Revitalizes the Look of Aging While Keeping the Natural Look ."

Look 5-10 Years Younger

When the natural aging process leaves you with wrinkles, frown lines, and sagging skin, it can be difficult to feel confident or attractive. As dramatic as the effects of aging skin are, we can provide equally dramatic facelift surgery that results in a more youthful facial appearance—and can often leave you looking 5-10 years younger! Facelift surgery, or rhytidectomy, removes major wrinkles and sagging skin, tightening both the facial and neck muscles while removing excess skin. Not only does a facelift in Issaquah, WA improves facial appearance, but it also has a significant effect on the neck, enhancing its contour and profile. You’ll not only look younger but feel younger, too! See a simulation of your treatment results by scheduling a consultation with our plastic surgeon, Dr. Hardeep Dhaliwal, at Adara Surgical Institute today.

Understanding the Facelift Procedure

In the weeks leading up to your surgery date, avoid drugs that contain aspirin to minimize excess bleeding. You may be required to take antibiotics to prevent infection. You may be instructed to shampoo your hair the night before surgery. A small amount of hair may be shaved around your ears and temples in preparation for your facelift in Issaquah, WA. Your facelift will be completed in our state-of-the-art surgical center while you are under intravenous sedation. General anesthesia is generally not required but can be used if desired. During your procedure, Dr. Dhaliwal will make incisions inside the hairline at the temple, in front of the ear, then around the earlobe and behind the ear, ending at the scalp area. Excess skin is removed and sagging muscles and connective tissues are tightened. In some cases, fatty deposits are removed from beneath the chin and neck. Incisions are closed with small sutures. The procedure may take up to five hours depending on whether any other procedures are performed at the same time. It is necessary to have someone drive you home and stay with you for the first 24 hours.

Recovery: What to Expect

The healing process after a facelift in Issaquah, WA is gradual, so you will not notice results for up to six months. Initially after surgery, you will have a large dressing wrapped around your head. You may also have surgical drains attached to bulbs hanging at your neck, which are removed in approximately 24 hours. Swelling and discoloration decrease within two weeks. Tightness in your face will be present for several weeks and there may be slight changes in your hair pattern around the incision. To minimize scarring, we may remove the sutures in stages. We recommend that you avoid the sun for several weeks after surgery.

In the weeks following surgery, the facial skin and area around the ear may be numb. There may also be some temporary discoloration as healing begins, which may take a few months to disappear. Occasionally, the facial nerve is bruised during surgery, resulting in temporary loss of function or sensation. Complications following facelift are rare. To avoid these complications, strictly follow all pre- and post-operative instructions, so you can ensure a healthier, more predictable recovery!
