Facelift surgery is a time-tested and highly effective way to remove years from your appearance. Triple board-certified Houston facelift surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann offers both full and mini-facelift options, enabling him to customize each procedure to meet the exact needs of the patient. If you are considering a facelift in Houston, we welcome an opportunity to meet with you and discuss your goals, and to help you find the solution best suited to produce the look of your dreams.

Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann performs two different types of facelifts in Houston at our accredited plastic surgery center:

  • Full facelift – ideal for patients with loose or sagging skin in the neck and along the jowls, the full facelift addresses skin laxity and wrinkles from the midface down
  • Mini-facelift – perfect for patients with only mild skin laxity and initial signs of aging, the mini-facelift reduces sagging in the cheeks, along the jawline and throughout the neck

A full facelift will require incisions above the hairline and behind the ears, giving our doctors the ability to lift underlying fat, muscle, and tissue into a more appealing position. For a mini-facelift, incisions are shorter and often placed only in the area being treated. Both types of facelift procedures will produce natural-looking results that can last for several years. Which facelift technique is right for you is something best determined during your initial consultation with our Houston plastic surgeon. Call us at (713) 790-1771 to schedule your consultation today.

What A Houston Facelift Can Do

Facelift surgery is designed to lift sagging and loose skin in the neck, lower face, and midface. In so doing, this facial rejuvenation procedure is also effective at addressing:

  • Hollowed cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Jowls
  • Turkey waddle
  • Double chin

Facelift surgery in Houston can take years off of your appearance, but it is not designed for full facial rejuvenation. If you are unhappy with several areas of your face, Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann may recommend combining your facelift with additional procedures including eyelid surgery and brow lift for optimal results. Facelift surgery can also be complemented with nonsurgical options such as dermal fillers. During your initial plastic surgery consultation at our Houston office, Dr. Eisemann will help you decide on the appropriate procedures and begin customizing the rejuvenation procedure ideal for your needs.

Am I A Facelift Candidate?

The best candidates for facelift surgery are Houston men and women who have loose or sagging skin in the neck and facial area, and who desire a tighter and more youthful appearance. In addition, the best candidates for Houston facelift surgery are:

  • Nonsmokers
  • Both women and men are good candidates for facelifts
  • In generally good physical and emotional health
  • Aware of the benefits and limitations of facelift surgery
  • Prepared for a surgical procedure
  • Able to take time off from work and strenuous activity to recover
  • Willing to follow all pre and postoperative instructions provided by our doctors.

It is also important that facelift candidates have realistic expectations. This procedure can take several years off of your appearance, but it cannot make a 50-year-old look 18 again. Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann take great care in crafting personalized procedures while still maintaining natural-looking results. What you can realistically expect will be discussed during your facelift consultation.

Facelift Recovery

Recovery from facelift surgery is as individual as the patients who undergo it. Because some Houston patients opt to include other procedures like eyelid surgery as part of their facelift, it’s impossible to definitively say what you will and will not experience. That said, we can generally characterize the recovery process according to the four weeks following the procedure.

  • The day of your surgery – The vast majority of our patients go home the same day as their operation. You’ll want to have a trusted friend or a family member drive you home and remain with you for at least the first 24 hours to help you with basic needs like meals and medications.
  • Week One – In the first week following your facelift surgery, you’ll want to take it easy. Plenty of rest is called for, and you’ll probably be taking pain medication, which could cause some fatigue or nausea. Most patients are able to move around their houses normally within about three days of the operation, but Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann will give you specific postoperative instructions to help you care for your bandages and manage any pain and discomfort you may have.
  • Week Two – In week two, most of the swelling and bruising will have decreased, and you can resume very light activities like walking. While plenty of rest remains the order of the day, you should get up and move around in accordance with Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann instructions to keep blood flowing and aid your healing process.
  • Week Three – Patients are usually able to return to work after two weeks of recovery at home. You should begin feeling fairly normal again, though many patients continue to report lingering tightness in the skin, or even some tingling or numbness. You can resume most of your normal day-to-day activities, but save the intense exercise for another few weeks to prevent injury.
  • Week Four & Beyond – After the fourth week, you should be able to resume a majority of your normal activities, though more intense activities should be avoided until week six or eight. Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann will work with you during your recovery period to help you determine when it is safe to begin strenuous or demanding tasks.

Your facelift recovery will depend on factors including your body’s natural ability to heal and the type of facelift you have had performed. We will help you plan for a safe and comfortable recovery and provide you with all of the information you will need to reduce risks and complications, and ensure a smooth and rewarding experience.
