Facelift in Atlanta, GA

Present Your Best Self

Achieve a Youthful and Natural Look with Facelift Surgery in Atlanta

Today, more than ever, people are always "on"—whether you're meeting with clients, attending events, or vacationing— a camera is never far away. However, the sun, getting older, genetics, gravity, stress, and other environmental variables can all cause premature aging and other changes to sensitive facial skin.

These factors can cause even the healthiest person's skin to age prematurely and look tired even if they maintain a strict beauty regimen. People throughout the metro Atlanta area come to triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Asaf Yalif for Facelift surgery at his Atlanta or Alpharetta, GA, practice because they trust him to create the more youthful yet natural look they want. He minimizes wrinkles and fine lines, restores youthful contours, and tightens loose, sagging skin to take years off without apparent signs of surgery. A Facelift is a highly effective procedure combined with non-surgical facial rejuvenation, such as fillers.

Advanced Procedure

What is a Facelift?

Facelift surgeries, also known as rhytidectomy, are surgical procedures that enhance the facial appearance by removing extra skin and tightening the remaining skin and underlying tissue. This reduces wrinkles and sagging skin, giving the face a more youthful and revitalized appearance.

Improve Your Look & Confidence

What can a Facelift do?

Men and women often consider Rhytidectomy when they become concerned about signs of aging that make them look older than they feel. Our Atlanta Facelift patients often ask if they’re either too young or too old for a Facelift, but age isn’t really an important factor when determining who are good facelift candidates. Someone in their mid-40s who is thinking about a non-surgical treatment may be better off with the long-lasting results that a facelift produces.

Ideal Atlanta Facelift Candidates

You’re likely a good candidate for a Facelift if you:

  • Have wrinkles, lines, or sagging skin in the lower portion of your face
  • Feel like signs of aging hinder you socially or professionally
  • Want long-lasting results
  • Have realistic expectations

Being in good overall health and a non-smoker are also prerequisites for a Facelift. Smokers not only experience more post-op complications than other patients but can also expect shorter-lived results.

Understanding Your Facelift Procedure

Facelift Preparation and Procedure

The difference between Facelift techniques used 10 to 15 years ago and those used today is significant. When performed by a highly qualified and experienced plastic surgeon such as Dr. Yalif, a Facelift can produce remarkable results and take several years off your appearance. Many types of Facelift techniques exist, including some that promise more than they can deliver. Dr. Yalif primarily uses a technique called a SMAS lift, which he customizes based on each patient’s specific concerns. SMAS is short for the superficial musculoaponeurotic system, a layer of tissue and muscle just below the skin.

During your Facelift Atlanta patients will be put under general anesthesia. Dr. Yalif begins by making an incision at the temple, above the hairline. He then extends it along your skin’s natural crease in front of the ear, below the earlobe, and finishing behind the ear. The incision is virtually imperceptible after it heals. Dr. Yalif carefully exposes the SMAS layer, which he lifts, repositions, and tightens before re-draping the skin. He removes excess skin and then sutures the incisions, being careful to avoid a tight or “windswept” appearance. A SMAS lift minimizes the appearance of jowls and sagging in the mid-face. Dr. Yalif can also modify the procedure to tighten loose neck skin. The procedure typically takes about 4 hours.

How Long Does it Take to Recover From a Facelift?

Facelift Recovery, Results, and Aftercare

You’ll return home on the day of the surgery after spending time in the recovery room. Dr. Yalif places a dressing on the surgical site that remains until the initial follow-up appointment.

He provides detailed post-op instructions that help you recover with as little discomfort as possible. Swelling and bruising may last for up to two weeks after the surgery, but you may be able to return to work earlier. The initial results of the Facelift can be seen after about three weeks, but the full results may take several more weeks to develop. If you’re planning to get a Facelift before a significant social event, such as a wedding or class reunion, it’s best to schedule it at least a few months earlier to ensure you are completely healed.

Maintaining your Facelift results

Dr. Yalif will also provide advice to preserve your Facelift outcomes as long as feasible. Facelift surgeries and other cosmetic operations can improve your quality of life, self-esteem, and general health in a variety of ways, so don't wait to schedule a consultation to find out more.
