How is a Face Lift Performed?

A face lift generally takes several hours to complete. Most patients are given a sedative or placed under anesthesia to allow muscle relaxation and eliminate any pain.

Incisions that follow the ear line to the lower scalp are made to allow separation of muscles and neck and facial tissue. Excess fat is either suctioned or trimmed prior to the tightening of muscles.

Excess skin is pulled and trimmed, and if necessary a small tube is place behind ear to prevent hematoma.  Bandages are then wrapped loosely around your face to prevent swelling.
