What is a facelift?

A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a very popular surgical procedure that improves the visible signs of aging on the face, jawline and neck. During the procedure, excess skin is removed, and the underlying muscles and facial tissues are tightened to create a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. 

If you have significant signs of aging and want to improve wrinkles, creases, loose skin, double chins and sagging skin on the face and neck, a full facelift procedure at CAPS will achieve your ideal results. 

What is a mini facelift?

A mini facelift is a less invasive version of a full facelift and involves making smaller incisions around the ears and hairline to lift and tighten the skin. Due to the reduced scope of the surgery, a mini facelift requires significantly less downtime. 

If you’re looking to improve the mild to moderate signs of aging on your face, reduce wrinkles and eliminate jowls and sagging skin, a mini facelift at CAPS may be the best solution for you.

Frequently asked questions

about facelifts

How long does it take to recover from a facelift?

The recovery time after a facelift can vary depending on the extent of the procedure. Most patients can return to work and light activities within 2-3 weeks after surgery. It’s important to avoid strenuous activities and exercise for at least 4-6 weeks to allow the facial tissue to fully heal. Most patients can expect to see the final results of their facelift within 6-12 months after the surgery, as the swelling and bruising gradually subside. 

How many facelifts can you have?

There is no definitive limit to the number of facelifts you’re able to have throughout your lifetime. As long as you are healthy enough to undergo surgery, you should be able to have a mini facelift or full facelift. If you are unsure, you should schedule a consultation to discuss your options and determine if another facelift is right for you.

How much does a facelift cost in Ohio?

The cost of a facelift can vary depending on various factors including the surgeon and the type of facelift. The average cost of a traditional facelift is between $6,000-$10,000. 

How much younger will I look after the facelift?

The facelift before and after results can vary widely from patient to patient since the anatomy of each person is different. Since CAPS has some of the best facelift doctors and surgeons in Columbus, you can expect to see satisfactory results.

What are some possible side effects of a facelift?

Facelifts are safe, but with any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications to be aware of. During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss these risk factors with you and ensure you are well educated on the procedure and recovery. To minimize any risks associated with the procedure, you should carefully follow any preoperative or postoperative instructions from your provider. 

What is a facelift?

A traditional facelift, also known as a full facelift, involves making incisions near the hairline and around the ears to lift and reposition the skin and underlying tissue while removing excess skin. This results in the improved appearance of the face, jawline, and neck. This procedure is best for individuals who have more significant signs of aging such as deep wrinkles, loose skin, severe sagging and excess skin on the face and neck.

What is a mini facelift?

A mini facelift is a less invasive procedure and involves making smaller incisions around the ears and hairline to lift and tighten the skin while reducing the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. This procedure is best for individuals who have mild to moderate signs of aging on their face such as wrinkles and jowls but do not have significant skin laxity. 

What is the best age for a facelift?

There is no one "best" age for a facelift as everyone's aging process is different. However, generally, people who are in their 50s or 60s tend to be good candidates for a facelift because they typically have noticeable signs of aging such as sagging skin, jowls, and deep wrinkles. It's important to note that age alone should not be the only factor in deciding whether to undergo a facelift. Other factors such as skin quality, bone structure, and overall health should also be considered. 

What is the most common age for a facelift?

Facelifts can benefit a wide range of people depending upon their anatomy and their goals. We perform facelifts and mini-facelifts for patients as young as 40 and well into their 80s. Most commonly patients are in their 50’s and 60’s.

Where are the incisions for a facelift?

The location and extent of the incisions will depend on the type of facelift being performed. In a traditional facelift, incisions are typically made along the hairline and around the ears. In a mini facelift, the incisions are shorter and may be limited to the front of the ear. The scars from a mini facelift are typically less noticeable.
