Facelift Surgery Candidacy

Facelift surgery is an appropriate procedure for patients who are unsatisfied with the physical changes of their facial appearance due to aging, sagging facial skin, displaced fat deposits, severe facial wrinkling, nasolabial folds and/or double chin. As an experienced, board-certified Miami plastic surgeon, Dr. Gibstein can help you determine whether you are a good candidate for face lift surgery.

Important Aspects of Facelift Surgery

Dr. Gibstein performs several face lift surgery variations that range from mini-facelift to standard and deep-plane facelift. Each technique is tailored to address the unique aesthetic concerns of the prospective Miami facelift patient. The first step in determining the type of facelift most appropriate for a patient is a thorough evaluation of the patient’s skin elasticity, bone structure, facial wrinkle and fold severity, and individual aesthetic goals.

Facelift surgery techniques differ by:

  • Type of incision
  • The number of tissue layers treated
  • The degree of invasiveness

Dr. Gibstein will work closely with the patient to determine the best facelift technique and incision type.

Facelift Surgery Incisions

The facelift procedure usually involves surgical incisions in front of and behind the ears. In some cases, the incision may extend into the scalp. Dr. Gibstein places all incisions in the natural creases of the skin and behind the hairline so that postoperative scarring is hidden.

Facelift Surgery in Miami: The Procedure and Recovery

During facelift surgery, Dr. Gibstein separates the facial skin from the underlying tissues. Next, he reshapes the muscle and tissue. The skin is then tightened and sutured in place for a more youthful facial appearance.

Dr. Gibstein performs facelift surgery under sedation anesthesia in an accredited medical facility or local hospital, where he can ensure maximum safety for his Miami cosmetic surgery patients. Facelift surgery time generally lasts from two to four hours, depending on the complexity of the treatment and whether any other facial rejuvenation procedures are being performed at the same time. Patients are free to go home shortly after surgery. They are asked to return within 10 to 14 days to get their sutures removed. Most of Dr. Gibstein’s facelift Miami / Boynton Beach patients are able to resume daily activities within two to three weeks following facelift surgery. Full recovery and final results are usually achieved within two to three months thereafter.

Dr. Gibstein and his staff closely monitor their postoperative Miami face lift patients and guide them through their recuperation with personalized, compassionate care.
