Facelift surgery removes excess skin of the lower face and neck, tightening the underlying tissue and redraping the skin of the lower face and neck to give a more toned, natural, and youthful appearance. Often facelift surgery will be done along with other procedures such as a blepharoplasty or brow lift.

What is a Facelift?
The medical name for the common facial surgery known as Facelift is Rhytidectomy. This cosmetic plastic surgery procedure is very popular among patients in their golden years, living in Virginia Beach. The sun, the weather, and our emotions take a toll on our faces over time, causing skin to lose elasticity and begin to sag. This loss of tautness can lead to loss of confidence, and we at Galardi/Rosenblum Plastic Surgery want to correct that.
A facelift procedure is performed in a medically-accredited professional surgery suite like ours, conveniently located on Great Neck and Shore Drive. During the surgery, your surgeon will make small incisions near your ears, remove excess skin, and use stitches to close the incisions. The overall result of a facelift is a younger appearance, with less loose skin around the face, cheeks, jaw, neck, and more.
Do I need a Facelift?
Many patients come to Galardi/Rosenblum Plastic Surgery Center for a facelift because they seek to remove excess skin, tighten sagging jowls, and restore definition to their profile by lifting and tightening the skin under the chin.
If you are sick of frowning into the mirror and seeing frown lines stare back at you, along with loose, saggy skin or a chin that melds into your neck, then a Facelift may be the procedure for you.
Remember, as with any plastic surgery, it’s important to commit to yourself, not a procedure. Make sure you’re doing this for you, not someone else, and you’re far more likely to love your results.
What are the benefits of a Facelift?
A Facelift may be the miracle answer you’ve been seeking for your aging skin problems. Patients report a more youthful appearance after seeing their skin tighter, less loose, and more form-fitting. While a face lift won’t change the quality of your skin, it can dramatically improve your overall appearance and result in a younger, healthier look.
What are the risks of a Facelift?
Because a Facelift surgery requires close physical contact with many of the facial nerves and muscles beneath your skin, a detailed and extensive study of the human face is necessary to perform face lift surgery. In fact, the Facelift surgery technique is so specific and meticulous, many plastic surgeons never even study it.
Our own Dr. Rosenblum has performed so many facelifts it has become one of our most commonly requested procedures. We are confident that our knowledge, technique, and extensive experience will deliver the results you seek from your Virginia Beach facelift.
What to know before a Facelift?
There are some risks associated with Facelift surgery, although most are easily mitigated when the correct action is taken swiftly. For example, a hematoma is a common complication, which is easily treated within 24 hours of the surgery. Some nerve damage or paralysis is possible, but is often temporary or corrected by additional surgery.
Your lifestyle may put you at additional risks during your Facelift surgery. Depending on your your medical history, possible health conditions, and many factors such as diet, exercise, whether you smoke, etc. may affect your surgery and results. Be sure to schedule your FREE facelift consultation today to learn more about how a face lift might affect you.
Will I have scars from my Facelift?
Typically, the minor scars resulting from a Facelift procedure are easily hidden by the hairline. Scarring will fade over time, and on the rare occasion that a scar may become red or raised, a medicated cream may help.
What is the recovery time for Face Lift surgery?
The Face Lift surgery itself generally requires two hours to complete, after which time you’ll need to spend a few days bedridden. Make sure to follow all instructions given by your plastic surgeon and take all medications on schedule.
We’ll be sure to schedule a few follow-up appointments with you, to ensure that you’re healing up properly, not experiencing any unusual symptoms or discomfort, and change your bandages.
A week after your surgery, you’ll be asked to return to our Plastic Surgery Center in Virginia Beach so that we can remove your stitches. We also recommend that you take it easy for the following 3 weeks, avoiding irritants such as makeup, chemical shampoos/soaps/beauty treatments, and vigorous activities.
