How You’ll Benefit

What are the benefits of a Facelift?

During a facelift Charlotte plastic surgeon, Dr. Augenstein, will tighten the muscles beneath the skin, tighten the skin itself, and remove any excess fat – revealing a younger and fresher-looking you. A facelift typically focuses on the cheeks, lower face, and neck to restore facial volume and improve the jawline and shape of the neck and face.

Many times, facial fat grafting is done at the same time to replace volume and shape that have been lost due to aging. Similarly, as part of the facial rejuvenation process, a blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, can be performed at the same time. Those who want to improve the quality of their skin can also opt for nonsurgical treatments like chemical peels or medical-grade skincare to refine the skin’s texture and tone.

Are You a Candidate?

The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for a facelift is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Augenstein in Charlotte. Adult women and men whose faces and necks are beginning to show signs of wear and aging typically make ideal facelift candidates. You should be in good mental and physical health and have realistic expectations about the procedure and what it can achieve. Overall, the goal for a facelift is to help you look refreshed, well-rested, and natural.

Your Facelift Consultation

Many of Dr. Augenstein’s Charlotte facelift patients come to him with concerns their faces look different than they used to and it’s uncomfortable seeing a stranger’s face in the mirror. A common misconception is that people only seek plastic surgery because something is wrong with the way they look. The reality is there are many reasons why someone may choose to have plastic surgery, and aging is one of them.

Dr. Augenstein can help take years off your appearance – reclaiming a youthful freshness and vitality that tends to diminish with age. He will work closely with you to understand your goals and concerns so that your results look as natural as possible.

A Personalized Experience

Your Facelift Procedure

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to aesthetic surgery, and Dr. Augenstein will take time to develop a personalized plan for you. Once you agree on a treatment plan, Dr. Augenstein will go over what to expect before, during, and after the procedure to ensure that there are no surprises. There are several different approaches to facelift surgery. Determining which technique will work best for you involves a variety of factors, including your opinion and concerns, as well as your skin quality. Younger patients with only minor facial sagging can benefit from a procedure that targets the midface, such as a mini-facelift.

Other patients might require more focus on the lower face and neck area. These patients benefit from additional tightening of the neck muscles for an overall refreshed and natural appearance. The procedure is performed using twilight or general anesthetic, ensuring comfort throughout the surgery. A facelift can take anywhere from two to five hours and may be performed with a complementary procedure such as a neck lift or eyelid lift, which would increase the amount of time spent in surgery.
