A lower facelift rejuvenates your facial appearance by tightening the muscles and connective tissues, removing excess skin and fat, and restoring youthful definition at the jawline and upper neck. Tightening the underlying structure is a technique that achieves results that appear fresh and natural, rather than tight or pulled, as was common with older techniques. Dr. Michel Siegel is known for his artistry in performing this delicate facial procedure.
How do I prepare for a lower facelift?
If you smoke, then you must quit for at least two weeks before undergoing surgery. You may need to alter your current medications, which will be discussed with you doctor.
How much does a lower facelift cost?
A lower face lift has an average cost of $12,175, but could be less or more, based on the extent of your procedure.
How will I know what my results will look like?
Dr. Siegel offers his patients to visualize the outcome of facelift surgery with the Vectra 3D imaging system. A 3D image of your own face is created so you can clearly see how you will look after your surgery and recovery.
When will I see results?
In the initial stage of healing, you can expect swelling and bruising, which fades as the days pass, revealing a refreshed, natural look. You should be ready to venture out within about two to three weeks with confidence.
How long will I wear a compression garment after a facelift?
A lower facelift may involve gentle liposuction to remove under-chin fat. You should wear this garment as Dr. Siegel advises so the area heals smoothly.
How much younger will I look after a lower facelift?
Typically, Dr. Siegel’s patients look about a decade or more younger after a lower facelift. When sagging jowls are gone, excess skin removed, the jawline restored so it appears youthful, with the underlying facial tissues lifted, the results are exceptionally natural – like you in your younger years.
