What is a facelift?

A face-lift, also called a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves the contouring of your face to restore a more youthful appearance. If you associate a face-lift with an overly stretched and unnatural look, you should know that the latest surgical tools and techniques create an end result that is both beautiful and incredibly natural-looking.

Dr. Brennan invented a revolutionary technique that requires no hair loss, no pain, and a recovery process that takes only one day. He creates a customized treatment plan for every patient, and focuses on using the techniques he’s pioneered to help you look your very best.

Dr. Brennan performs a designer lift customized to each patient’s needs. Through his four-plane face-lift, he can refine your framework and bone structure, muscle, fat, and skin. This comprehensive approach delivers gorgeous, natural-looking results.

What issues can a face-lift address?

A face-lift offers the chance to correct or augment many areas of your face. As you age, you lose a significant volume of collagen, the natural layer of padding that creates the soft, smooth look commonly referred to as a “baby face.”

Without that layer of padding, your skin begins to sag and pool into lines, wrinkles, and folds. The damage caused by years of sun exposure and environmental toxins also becomes more apparent once your skin loses its youthful tone.

A face-lift can improve these issues:

  • Facial sagging
  • Changes in fat distribution
  • Loose or excess skin
  • Deep lines and folds from your nose to the corners of your mouth
  • Jowls at your lower cheeks and jaw

Depending on your needs and goals, additional procedures are done at the same time as your face-lift, including fat transfer, brow lift, and eyelid surgery.

How long do the results of my face-lift last?

While a face-lift rejuvenates your facial appearance and helps you look years younger, nothing stops the aging process in its tracks. Your face continues to change as the years pass, and your genetic makeup largely determines how that process moves forward.

That said, Dr. Brennan is committed to delivering the absolute best results possible at the time of your surgery. You can expect the results to last for 15 years or more, at which time you can determine if you’d like to pursue additional surgical or noninvasive facial rejuvenation procedures.

You’ll love the fact that there is no pain and a quick recovery time. Dr. Brennan’s approach also eliminates the need to alter your hairline, so there’s no hair loss.

If you’ve been thinking about trying a face-lift but are unsure where to begin, schedule an appointment to sit down with Dr. Brennan for an open and honest conversation about the possibilities available through a surgical face-lift. You’ll receive all the details needed to make an informed decision, with no pressure or sales push.
