A facelift is a surgical procedure that firms your skin and addresses sagging, folds, and wrinkles. In the hands of a skilled surgeon like Dr. Kottwitz, a facelift is one of the most effective ways to achieve a refreshed and renewed appearance.

Prior to your procedure, Dr. Kottwitz will discuss what to expect from your facelift. Having realistic expectations is a big part of any successful plastic surgery procedure, and you’ll have time to express concerns and ask questions.

What happens during a facelift?

A facelift is performed under local anesthesia with oral sedation. You won’t feel a thing, yet you also won’t have the same “heaviness” that comes with general anesthesia.

Once your medications take effect, Dr. Kottwitz begins by making incisions along your hairline to access the underlying tissues. She gently lifts your skin before sculpting the fat and other tissues, repositioning fat as needed to add fullness. Once she’s happy with your new facial contouring, she pulls your skin taut, trims away excess skin, and closes the incisions.

Many men and women choose to include neck lift or upper and lower blepharoplasty (eyelid lift)  procedures with their facelift. This ensures your eyes and neck conform to your newly refined facial features and is also a great way to make the most of your investment of time and money.
