Time and the aging process can drastically change your skin’s look and texture. But you can turn back the clock with a facelift performed by Dr. George Pope, board-certified plastic surgeon at the Pope Plastic Surgery.
As a result, you may develop damaged skin, fine lines, wrinkles, loose skin, and much more. These problems can make you look much older than you are or feel. In addition to the aging process, these issues can also occur as a result of poor lifestyle habits, long-term exposure to the sun, and high amounts of stress.
People who suffer from these aesthetic problems often seek the help of experienced plastic surgeons to undergo a facelift procedure.
The Facelift Procedure
A facelift is a surgical procedure designed to correct several age-related concerns in the facial region. It involves the tightening of loose, sagging skin around the cheeks and the jawline. A facelift can also correct fine lines and prominent wrinkles around the nose, mouth, and the chin.
The treatment is also a great solution for those with loose neck skin and deep wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. A facelift is the perfect procedure to restore one’s facial contours and youthful skin that tends to degrade with the aging process.
The procedure involves an incision in the hairline that can extend behind your ears. Through this incision, Dr. Pope works to removed excess fat and loose skin. Once the necessary corrections are made, the remaining skin is tightened and closed with incisions to form the new facial contours.
Dr. Pope pays careful attention to your unique features and works to deliver excellent results that you can feel proud to show off. If you desire further corrections in the neck area, he can also combine the procedure with a neck lift for even greater improvements.
Your final results can be seen after you have healed completely. You can expect a recovery time of 1 to 2 weeks. In that time, you should take a break from work and any other stressful activities that can affect your recovery.

The Results of a Facelift
A facelift procedure typically results in a much smoother and sculpted facial aesthetic. You can expect a significant reduction in wrinkles and loose skin. Overall, you’ll appear much more youthful and vibrant.
As long as you take good care of yourself after the procedure, you can expect the results you achieve to last for a long time to come.
Maintaining Your Facelift
Avoiding excessive sun exposure, following a healthy diet, and using the right skin products are some good measures that you can take to prolong the results of your facelift surgery.
Using dermal fillers is another effective way to prolong the results you achieve from a facelift procedure. By taking advantage of nonsurgical injections like JUVÉDERM VOLUMA®, your facelift can be maintained much longer than by using conventional methods alone.
