If the image you see reflected in the mirror is no longer a reflection of how you feel, you may want to consider facelift surgery. Triple board-certified Dr. Carey Nease has performed this facial rejuvenation surgery on residents living in Scottsboro, Ft. Payne, Huntsville, and the surrounding communities of northern Alabama.
What is a Facelift?
A facelift is a surgical procedure, often done on an outpatient basis, and designed to eliminate the signs of aging in the face and neck area.
This is accomplished by making well-placed incisions that allow the skin to be pulled up and back, giving a smoother, more youthful appearance to the face.
Excess skin is then removed and tightening may be done to some of the deeper tissue areas of the face.
How Much Does a Facelift Cost in North Alabama and Huntsville area?
Generally speaking, a full facelift at Nease Cosmetic Surgery ranges from $7,000 to $9,000. The cost of a mini facelift is between $5,000 and $7,000. Costs can vary greatly from patient to patient, depending on a number of contributing variables, and will be thoroughly discussed during your initial consultation.
Facelift surgery is typically done for cosmetic reasons, and therefore is not usually covered by insurance. At Nease Cosmetic Surgery, we want to keep procedures as affordable for our patients as possible. To that end, we offer complimentary consultations as well as a variety of payment methods, including cash, major credit cards, and financing through CareCredit®.
What is a Mini Facelift?
A mini facelift, as the name indicates, is a somewhat scaled-down version of a traditional facelift. The scars are shorter and smaller and the results are more subtle. Mini facelifts are designed to address mild or moderate sagging, primarily limited to the mid-face area, rather than the whole facial region as in a full facelift.
What Are the Benefits of a Facelift?
There are numerous benefits to a facelift and most people who undergo facelift surgery are delighted with their results. Some of the most popular benefits include:
- Refreshed, revitalized, and rejuvenated facial appearance
- Fewer obvious signs of aging, like lines and wrinkles
- Drooping corners of the mouth are lifted
- Tightened sagging skin and excess skin is removed
- A dramatic increase in self-confidence
Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?
This is ultimately decided by your surgeon, but if you’re an adult with no outstanding issues in your medical history, chances are you’ll be a good candidate for a facelift. Your doctor can help make sure your expectations about the final results are realistic and attainable.
What is Facelift Recovery Like?
Recovery times will vary from one patient to another, but generally, it will take about two weeks before you can return to normal activities. Vigorous exercise and other activities can be resumed after about a month.
Your best bet for the most successful, speediest recovery is to follow the post-op instructions you’ll receive from your doctor after your facelift procedure.
