IS A FACELIFT RIGHT FOR YOU?

A facelift can reverse the effects of gravity on the face and make you look younger and fresher. As we age, we experience the effects of gravity and age-related changes. Stress, wear and tear, and lifestyle factors also contribute to the unwanted changes in our faces such as deep creases, lines, wrinkles, folds and fat deposits. Wrinkles and loose, sagging skin happen to everyone. But it’s easier than ever to make a lasting change in your appearance, and if you’re like many men and women, a facelift in the Tampa Bay Area performed by Dr. George Solomon at Solomon Cosmetic Center in Tampa, FL, can help you do just that. Men and women in their 40s and older commonly decide to “turn back the clock” by having a facelift.

Stunning Results

A facelift involves removing excess fat and skin from the face, tightening relaxed muscles, and re-draping the skin over the face and neck. A facelift can be done on its own or along with other facial procedures such as a browlift or eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), or a neck lift for full facial rejuvenation. The results give you a more youthful appearance, with smoother, tighter skin, while removing the unwanted lines, wrinkles, and folds.

CHECKLIST OF CONCERNS

If you are dissatisfied with the visible signs of aging in your face and neck, then you are a candidate for a facelift. This surgical procedure can make you look younger by correcting signs of aging such as deep creases around the mouth or eyelids, loose skin or excess fat creating a double chin, loss of muscle causing jowls, or sagging cheeks.

COSTS

The cost of a facelift can vary in price across the country. Dr. Solomon is a very experienced cosmetic surgeon and has performed hundreds of facelift surgeries. One of the main differences is that you don’t have to pay expensive hospital fees because he has a licensed surgical suite at his office location in Tampa, FL. Contact us today to learn more.

ABOUT THE PROCEDURE

Commonly, this procedure places the incision along the hairline, where excess skin is pulled up, trimmed away, and tightly secured. Dr. Solomon strives to create a natural result that meets the patient’s aesthetic goals. There are various techniques used today to perform a facelift. Facial anatomy, skin laxity and the overall aesthetic goal of the patient will determine the best approach. Each procedure will be unique to the patient and will vary based on the type and location of the incision, the number of tissue layers affected, the plane of elevation and the level of invasiveness.

The length of the surgery will vary, but it generally takes between 3-4 hours.

AFTERCARE AND RECOVERY

Because a full facelift is considered an outpatient procedure, patients can begin the recovery process in the comfort of their own home the same day as surgery. After the procedure, a loose-fitting dressing is applied. Typically, there is little to no discomfort after surgery; however, if pain is present it can easily be controlled with over-the-counter medication. Discoloration and bruising is a normal part of the recovery process and generally fades within seven days. To help with the recovery process, Dr. Solomon suggests that patients do the following

  • Keep the head elevated as much as possible
  • Avoid taking aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories
  • Avoid strenuous activities for 2 to 3 weeks
  • Be gentle with facial and hair care due to tenderness
  • Camouflage makeup can be worn to cover bruising
  • Keep scheduled follow-up appointments after surgery

After surgery, patients experience bruising and swelling. The neck will feel tight. This will gradually improve within a few days. It is common for patients to feel anxious about how their face will appear. Patients need to understand it can take several full months for the final results to appear.

Alise Martinez

By far the best experience I’ve had with a surgeon in his profession and office staff! The entire team at Solomon Cosmetic ROCKS! I started my journey with them back in September of 2020, after searching extensively for a great surgeon in my area to do a BBL. From day one Dr. Solomon and all his office staff were very inviting, warm, engaged, and helpful in explaining any and all questions and concerns I had about the procedure I was inquiring about. Very pleased to have had virtual and in person consultations with the doctor and staff before making the decision in choosing them. I couldn’t have picked a better team! Dr. Solomon definitely delivered what I asked for, and the entire experience was easy and perfect! I am super excited to be his patient again this year!

Judy pietrangeli

Excellent staff and very honest doctor. Dr. Solomon does not lead the patient one way or the other, like a few other Doctors I have spoken with.i believe his reviews speak for this practice. I will definitely return.

Babylove Quitoe

I did my breast implants on the 8th of December. Dr. Solomon did a very good job and his team was very nice and friendly and he’s a very good doctor. I really love him, god bless you and thank you for changing my life. I’m doing wonderful just after 3 days after my surgery. I 100% recommend Dr. Solomon 🙏

Dona Morrow

What a wonderfully warm office and staff welcoming new patients in with all the knowledge needed to make perfect decisions for approaching the aging years. And, thank you Dr Solomon fir the incredible recommendations and work done. I am happy to have found you after my move from Texas.

Michelle Turner

I have picked and utilized Dr. Solomon for many surgeries, as a 44 year old woman I wanted to enhance and fix some of the aging on my face and body. Dr. Solomon and his staff for the last several years have been great to work with and made me feel comfortable on all visits. He has the best bedside manners and the nurses care about your overall experience and aftercare. I highly recommend and will continue to go to his practice for all my plastic surgery and Botox needs.

MINI FACELIFT

Many times, Dr. Solomon will tell the patient that he/she doesn’t really need a full facelift. Instead, he will recommend a mini facelift. A good candidate for a mini facelift is someone between 40 and 55 with early signs of aging. The benefits of a mini facelift are a quicker recovery time and about half the cost of a full facelift. The mini facelift concentrates on the lower 1/3 of the face and includes the neck and jowls. Learn more+

NON-SURGICAL ALTERNATIVES

BOTOX®, Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane, Beletero, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels are examples of some non-surgical procedures that can assist in smoothing out wrinkles, improving fine lines and adding facial volume. Using these products together to achieve tighter, more youthful skin is often referred to as a liquid facelift. These procedures also help to even out skin tone. However, these are treatments that will only affect the skin’s surface. Patients with loose skin, drooping jowls or a sagging neck will need to consider surgery if they want these features improved.

Each patient is unique; therefore, results of treatment may vary.
