Despite the age of the procedure itself, facelifts today are more natural-looking and refreshing than perhaps ever before. Please learn more about this procedure below.

Ready to restore a more youthful facial appearance? If so, please call Desert Hills Plastic Surgery Center in Las Vegas at 702-260-7707. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Hayley Brown will meet with you one-on-one to discuss your options.

Facelift Surgery has been a Top Procedure for Years

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons releases procedure statistics annually. Looking back through the years to 2010, you can see that facelifts have maintained their popularity.

  • 2017: 125,697 procedures
  • 2016: 131,106
  • 2015: 125,711
  • 2014: 128,266
  • 2013: 133,320
  • 2012: 126,320
  • 2011: 119,026
  • 2010: 112,955

While breast augmentation is the number 1 procedure annually with roughly 300,000 procedures performed each year, facelift is not far from being in the top 5 some years.

The facelift procedure works by tightening tissue and muscle deep below your skin, as well as the surface skin itself. In this way, the underlying supportive structure of your face is revitalized. It is these facial tissues, muscles and skin that sag and grow lax with age. A facelift has the effect of turning back the hands of time. Results you can expect include:

  • Smoother, less wrinkly skin
  • A tauter but not pulled facial appearance
  • Better definition of the jaw line, cheeks and forehead
  • A lifted, smoother neck (if a neck lift is incorporated)
  • Preservation of your range of facial expressions while still providing effectively lifted skin

These results are lasting. Although no surgical results are permanent because we cannot stop the effects of age and time, most patients continue to enjoy their results for up to a decade or so before they may want a touch-up.

Your Customized Facial Rejuvenation Plan

There are many options when it comes to facial rejuvenation, such as:

  • A surgical facelift
  • Non-surgical injectable fillers
  • Non-surgical peels, laser resurfacing and other treatments
  • A combined approach with two or more of the above

Dr. Brown's years of training and experience mean she can closely tailor recommendations to the look you want and the condition of your skin. Fillers are very effective at restoring diminished fat beneath the skin, which smooths out wrinkles and refreshes your overall appearance. But only a facelift can address the laxity of the facial muscles. Depending on the extent of sagging, Dr. Brown may recommend either a facelift or a non-surgical option. On the other hand, it may make sense to combine a facelift with a filler, peel, BOTOX® or other option for the very best possible results. Rely on Dr. Brown to help you choose.
