What is a facelift?

Dr. Haidenberg and Dr. Yaker offer facelift surgery for Plano, TX area patients desiring a revitalized, more youthful appearance. Many individuals will make the decision to have a facelift (also known as rhytidectomy) to address droopy features, sagging skin and wrinkles. Facelifts are sometimes done in conjunction with forehead, eyelid and nose reshaping surgeries. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a facelift is the 5th most common cosmetic procedure in the United States. It is important to find a skilled, experienced face surgeon so a natural-looking result can be achieved. Dr. Haidenberg and Dr. Yaker perform many face lift surgeries successfully each year.

What are different kinds of facelift procedures?

There are various techniques used today to perform a facelift. Facial anatomy, skin laxity and the overall aesthetic goal of the patient will determine the best approach. Each procedure will be unique to the patient and will vary based on the type and location of the incision, the number of tissue layers affected, the plane of elevation and the level of invasiveness.

Traditional Facelift (SMAS)

This SMAS facelift is considered the gold standard. This surgery, while more complicated, produces results that are more dramatic and longer lasting. The technique involves manipulating a group of muscles beneath the skin known as the superficial musculo-aponeurotic system (SMAS). This section of muscle controls facial expression. An incision is made along the hairline from the temple to just behind the earlobe. The skin is then separated and lifted. The underlying muscles and tissue are tightened and secured so they maintain their new position.

Deep Plane Lift

The deep plane lift goes a step further than the traditional approach. It is better suited for those with severe sagging and drooping — usually reserved for older patients. In addition to the SMAS layer being adjusted, a deeper section, known as the deep plane, is also treated. While this procedure offers certain advantages over a traditional facelift, surgeons must be skilled and act with caution so facial nerves are not damaged during the surgical process.

Mini Facelift

A mini facelift is geared towards patients who want some of the benefits of a facelift, while at the same time minimizing the cost and invasive nature of the surgery.  Some procedures that are considered “mini” include the “Quicklift” or “Lifestyle Lift”.   Patients who wish to maximize the outcome of their surgery, resulting in the most dramatic results, will most likely need to turn to having a full facelift in order to meet these aesthetic goals.

How does a facelift work?

All facelift procedures are performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The length of the surgery will vary, but it generally takes between 3-4 hours. This surgery is considered an outpatient procedure. However, some patients may be required to stay overnight in the hospital. After surgery, patients will be bruised and swollen and the face and neck will feel tight. This will gradually improve within a few days. It is common for patients to feel anxious about how their face will appear. Patients need to understand it can take several full months for the final results to appear.

How much does a facelift cost?

Each facelift surgery is unique and will be tailored to each patient. Most patients can expect to pay between $6,000-$8,000 for a less invasive/skin only facelift, while more invasive procedures, such as the SMAS facelift and the deep plane facelift, can run between $8,500-$14,000. lists the average facelift cost at $11,050.

Facelift FAQ

Which technique is best for me?
The best surgical facelift technique for you will depend on your needs, goals, level of skin laxity, which areas of your face are being addressed, and more. To produce your best results, Dr. Haidenberg will explain the different surgical techniques in your consultation. He will then help you decide which technique is best.

Should I get a surgical or nonsurgical facelift?
Although there are many great nonsurgical skin tightening procedures, these can usually only give you small improvements. For moderate to severe skin sagging, a surgical facelift is the best choice to significantly improve your appearance. In your consultation, Dr. Haidenberg will discuss your options, including nonsurgical procedures, to help you decide what is best for your needs and goals.

What about wrinkle fillers and relaxers over facelift surgery?
Injectable wrinkle fillers and relaxers, like Juvéderm and BOTOX, have become very popular in recent years to improve fine lines and wrinkles. Also known as a liquid facelift, injectable wrinkle treatments can give early signs of aging, but the results are temporary. A facelift will produce more significant improvements than injectables with long-lasting results. Ask Dr. Haidenberg about injectable treatments during your consultation.

Will my results look natural?

Dr. Haidenberg focuses on giving you results that look natural, so you look refreshed and not fake. He listens to your concerns and goals before creating your custom treatment plan with the technique that will produce your best results.
