What Is A Facelift?

Dr. James Rough, a board-certified plastic surgeon, offers a full spectrum of facial plastic surgery procedures in Tucson, AZ. One of the most common surgeries is a facelift, which concentrates on precise regions of the face to combat skin laxity and lines to produce a refreshed, firmer appearance. Depending on your cosmetic goals, a facelift can focus on the lines and wrinkles near the eyes, cheeks, mouth, jowls, and neck for an all-encompassing younger look. The facelift method used depends on your desired outcome, the condition of your skin, the degree of skin laxity, lifestyle, age, and other factors. Some patients prefer a full facelift while others may only want a mid-facelift. Call James Rough, M.D. Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation for a facelift today.

What Are The Types Of Facelifts?

Depending on your individual needs, there are various types of facelifts to consider. Some facelifts rejuvenate the upper portion of the face, and others focus on the lower two-thirds. In addition, some methods are a bit more invasive than others. It's very common for some individuals to have BOTOX® and fillers to enhance their outcomes. A few of the more known facelift options include:

• Full Facelift: A common surgery for older adults, the full facelift generally puts an incision along the hairline, extending down to the temple region, stopping near the base of the ears. The deeper layer of facial muscles is carefully stretched and tightened to produce a lifted look, which softens excessive wrinkles and sagging. This facelift is reserved for men and women who have signs of aggressive aging. With this lift, various procedures may be used, including upper or lower blepharoplasty to enhance the eyes or a neck lift for the lower region.

• Mid-Facelift: Incorporating a similar method to the mini lift, the mid-facelift (cheeks) addresses the hollow and lax areas near the cheekbones and the upper jaw. The mid-facelift works well for those who seek improvement in the middle to lower region of the face, which also improves the look of the jowls.

• Lower Facelift: This particular facelift addresses the neck and chin and, in many cases, the jowls.

• Mini Facelift: When undergoing a mini facelift, a tiny incision is placed near the ears to lift the skin to a higher position, which helps the mouth and jawline. This process creates nice and subtle enhancements that look natural.

Dr. Rough and his entire staff are incredible. From start to finish, they are compassionate, empathetic, and thorough. From the consult to the operation I felt I was taken care of by professional, genuinely caring people. I’ve had a few cosmetic surgeries and I always get sick from the anesthesia, Dr. Rough’s anesthesiologist is the most wonderful sweet human being I’ve ever met. Everyone that is on his team is amazing and just as sweet. You will be in good hands with anything Dr. Rough does. I am writing this review day of surgery and I am feeling great. I highly recommend Dr. James Rough if you are looking for a skilled and caring surgeon with a team that will take care of you from start to finish. I cannot wait for my results!

Facelift FAQs

How much does a facelift cost?

The cost of your facelift will depend on the technique used. In your consultation, Dr. Rough will develop your unique treatment plan to match your needs and goals. Once this is complete, he can discuss cost estimates. To avoid unnatural-looking results, it's best to focus on finding an experienced surgeon, like Dr. Rough, instead of the cheapest price. James Rough, M.D. Plastic Surgery can help you find low-interest medical financing that will make your surgery easier to afford.

Which technique is best for me?

The best technique for you will depend on your needs, goals, degree of skin laxity, what areas are being addressed, and other factors. To produce your best results, Dr. Rough will go over the different techniques in your consultation. He will then help you decide which technique is best for you.

Should I get a surgical or nonsurgical facelift?

While there are many great nonsurgical skin tightening treatments, these can only produce mild improvements. If you have moderate to severe skin sagging, facelift surgery is the best choice to significantly improve your appearance. In your consultation, Dr. Rough will discuss your choices, including nonsurgical procedures, to help you select which is best for your goals.
