What is a Facelift?

Given the incredible results, the majority of patients find the average facelift cost quite reasonable.

Improve sagging skin, restore youthful facial contours, and reduce visible signs of aging with a facelift — a permanent anti-aging procedure that helps men and women look 10 to 15 years younger with surgery.

For patients that wish to refresh their facial appearance in a single procedure, rhytidectomy may be just what the doctor ordered. A facelift turns back the hands of time by tightening loose skin on the mid to lower face and jawline. With results that always look natural, Dr. Pedersen provides a modern facelift in Akron that is tailored to each patient’s needs.

Wrinkled skin and jowls happen to nearly everyone at some point in the aging process. This typically begins around age 40. As the years go by, the signs of facial aging inevitably worsen. Treating loose skin and wrinkles early may provide the most natural result.

Are You A Good Candidate For A Facelift?

Sagging skin on the face and jawline can be moderate to severe on some patients due to heredity or aging. If you are concerned about facial wrinkles on the mid to lower part of the face and/or lack of jawline definition, then a facelift can refresh your appearance and tighten loose skin.

Many patients have a hard time imagining what the facelift results might look like on them as an individual. Here is a good trick to get a sense of what a facelift can do for you.

Look at yourself in a mirror while lying down. Notice the changes in the contour of your face. Like a facelift, gravity pulls the skin toward the hairline/ears for a nice smoothing effect with visible wrinkle reduction. The jawline and jowls appear more contoured if this is an area of concern for you. The results you see in the mirror will provide a close approximation of what you can expect from a facelift procedure.

The ideal facelift candidate is in good overall health; is a non-smoker or is willing to quit in order to have cosmetic surgery, and is not pregnant or breastfeeding. With a Facelift Cleveland and Akron candidates from a variety of backgrounds, occupations, genders, and ages can experience rejuvenation.

Why Choose Dr. Pedersen For Your Facelift Surgery?

Uncompromising results are the hallmark of Dr. Pedersen’s practice. His philosophy is to listen with care to each patient’s particular concerns in order to design a surgical plan that will make your face appear several years younger — all without obvious signs of having work done.

One way he achieves a natural result is by applying uniform tension to the skin for a smooth, natural finish that gains attention for the right reasons. We want every patient to get compliments on how refreshed and rejuvenated they look after facelift surgery, without anyone being able to detect that you had a little help to look your best.

Another important factor for a great surgical outcome is the facelift scar. It is important that incisions are neatly hidden. The facelift procedure involves incisions that are placed in front of the ear or behind the ear where they cannot be easily noticed. The scars are well hidden behind the ear within the hairline.

Dr. Pedersen is trained in modern facelift techniques. Innovations in facelift surgery have allowed qualified facial surgeons to tighten excess facial skin, reduce sagging jowls, smooth wrinkles, and eliminate fine lines without the need for long incisions.

How Much Is a Facelift?

The best way to get an accurate estimate of how much your facelift cost is an in-person consultation with Dr. Pedersen. There are multiple approaches to facelift surgery and each has its own price point. We want to ensure you receive the procedure that will achieve the results you are looking for.

Natural results are very important to Dr. Pedersen, especially when it comes to face surgery. As a board-certified Akron plastic surgeon, he has more than 18 years of experience in cosmetic procedures for both face and body and a record of marvelous, natural-looking results.

At What Age Should I Get a Facelift?

Starting at age 40 is when most people begin to notice advanced signs of facial aging. However, the average age for facelift surgery can be anytime in the 40s, 50s, or 60s. It all depends on the degree of sagging skin, wrinkles, and jawline contours that you find concerning.

Many patients see the best result by having a facelift done in their 40s. The results tend to look most natural at this age. Regardless of age, Dr. Pedersen will be pleased to help. To learn more about whether you are a good candidate for a facelift, we encourage you to book a private consultation with Dr. Pedersen. He will examine the facial skin laxity, wrinkle presence, and jawline to help you determine if a facelift is in your best interest.
