Facelift surgery is a well-known procedure performed to visibly reduce the signs of aging. It is designed to enhance and raise the skin by eliminating excess fat within the face. A facelift tightens the skin and muscles to present a youthful, ageless face. A facelift procedure is right for you if your skin appears heavily drawn out, it’s sagging, or appears aged. A facelift procedure in Raleigh NC creates a youthful-looking, healthy glow.
Diminish the Signs of Aging
A face-lift is the procedure that’s known to visibly diminish signs of aging. It can erase wrinkles within the forehead, tighten facial-muscles, and restore a striking appearance. A full facelift erases deep creases, sagging within the cheeks, and excess fat surrounding the chin. Facelifts are designed to restore your inner-youth and glowing appearance.
The recovery process is different for each individual, as the procedure is different for each individual. The first 24-hours usually require facial dressing to ensure optimal results. The recovery process involves mildly-painful bruising for the first few days, but after two weeks, bruising will diminish and results will begin to appear.
2-3 weeks off of daily activity
No athletics for 6 weeks

An initial meeting with Dr.Collins is the first step to obtaining
a youthful-looking glow and determining a suitable option.
A full facelift, which is the traditional option, offers the widest results as it targets a larger surface area. Your surgeon will examine creases below the eyes, sagging surrounding the cheeks, lines around the mouth, and excess skin underneath the jaw. As this covers a wide surface, the incision is much longer.
A mid-face lift is suitable for younger individuals, as it tightens the areas below the eyes and around the cheeks. Incisions similar to the full facelift are made, but these are much deeper. Areas that aren’t touched in the full facelift are touched with the mid-face facelift.
A mini-facelift, or more commonly referred to as a “weekend facelift,” can be conducted with an endoscopic or non-endoscopic approach. An endoscopic procedure is when minuscule cuts are made around the targeted area. A non-endoscopic procedure allows more minuscule incisions to be made to help turn over the area and reshape muscles.
