Facelift

Do you ever find yourself wondering why your face doesn’t look as youthful as you feel inside? Unfortunately, we can’t hide from gravity, daily stress, or years spent relaxing in the sun.

Luckily, your face doesn’t have to reveal your age any longer! Restore your youthful beauty with a Facelift by Dr. Paul C. Dillon, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Modern cosmetic surgery makes it possible to erase the signs of aging. One of the most effective techniques for restoring youthful beauty is a Facelift (also known as a Rhytidectomy).  With this surgical procedure, Dr. Dillon can correct facial issues associated with aging.

What is a Facelift?

A Facelift is a surgical procedure that tightens facial skin to correct the appearance of sagging jawlines, droopy eyelids, and loss of elasticity.

Because every patient has an exclusive facial anatomy and desired results, each Facelift procedure is personalized to meet the patient’s needs. By thoroughly discussing your goals prior to surgery, Dr. Dillon can effectively prepare your unique treatment plan.

*The Procedure

During the procedure, Dr. Dillon will make incisions behind the ears and/or around the scalp region (these incisions will eventually be hidden by the hairline). He will then access the facial tissue via the incisions and pull them taut. This will result in a tighter appearance.

Post treatment

Patients will experience swelling and bruising after their procedure. The face will be loosely bandaged to encourage swelling to go down. Most patients can return to work within two weeks after surgery.

*Benefits of a Facelift

  • A refreshed, rejuvenated appearance
  • Firmer, tighter skin
  • Diminished wrinkles
  • Long lasting results; up to 10 years
  • Improved confidence and self-esteem

Am I a good candidate?

Facelift can produce remarkable results, but this procedure isn’t for everyone. You are a good candidate if you:

  • Have skin that is still relatively supple
  • Have well-defined bone structure
  • Do not have medical conditions that impair healing
  • Do not smoke
  • Have a positive outlook and realistic expectations
