Facelift FAQs

What are the primary benefits of facelift surgery?

A facelift surgery is the most effective way to reverse the signs of aging and restore a youthful and appealing look to your face. Your facial features can become obscured by the process of aging, leaving you with an appearance that diminishes self-confidence. With a facelift procedure, the muscles and tissue in your face can be gently lifted to redefine the natural contours and beauty of your face.

Am I a good candidate for a facelift?

Good candidates for a facelift are unhappy with the appearance of their face and in generally good health. It is also important that you have sufficient bone structure to produce a defined and attractive appearance. However, if you have inadequate bone structure, a facelift can be combined with a procedure such as facial implants to produce a fuller, more youthful appearance.

The best way to determine candidacy for facelift surgery is to schedule a free consultation with one of the board-certified plastic surgeons at our Novi, Michigan office. During your consultation, one of our surgeons will carefully evaluate your facial structure to help determine if a facelift is right for you.

Is there a common technique for a facelift?

There are several techniques that can be used for a facelift. Some techniques are new and the long-term results they produce are unknown. The Star Plastic Surgery Advantage guarantees that the technique we use for your facelift is proven safe and effective. We have found the European facelift method produces much better results with substantially less scarring.

Are the results of a facelift permanent?

A facelift can take years off of your face but cannot prevent the aging process. Lifestyle choices, like smoking, will impact the length of time your facelift lasts. Limiting sun exposure and taking time to clean and moisturize your face every day will also have an impact. The European facelift method utilized by our board-certified plastic surgeons produces results that last years beyond mini-facelifts and nonsurgical facelifts.

Will a facelift make my face look tight and unnatural?

The surgeons at Star Plastic Surgery have years of experience in providing exceptional facelift results. We strive to give you a look that is natural and appealing, taking time to ensure your facelift is performed correctly and precisely contoured to your facial structure.
