Dr. Mendelsohn is a gifted Cincinnati facial plastic surgeon who has helped numerous facelift patients achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance. He uses the most advanced techniques in his Advanced Lift facelifting procedure to help patients erase the signs of aging — including deep folds and sagging skin, jowls, and neck.
The Advanced Facelift Procedure
*Outpatient procedure performed in our AAAHC accredited surgery center under local or MAC (twilight) anesthesia.
*Surgery takes about an hour.
*An incision is placed in front of the ear, behind the tragus, and continues around the earlobe about halfway up the back crease of the ear.
*The SMAS ligament and platysmal muscles are lifted and supported with sutures.
*Excess skin is removed and the face is lifted and tightened.
*Excess fat under the chin and around the neck may also be removed through submental liposuction.
The Advanced Facelift Recovery
*You will come in for a checkup the day after surgery.
*You will need to sleep and rest with your head elevated for a week after your procedure.
*A dressing is in place only for one day, no drainage tubes are used.
*You can shower the day after surgery.
*Pain is minimal, easily controlled with medication, and subsides by the third day after surgery.
*Swelling is minimal, and is mostly gone by the fifth day after your surgery.
*Minimal bruising peaks at two days after your surgery, and then rapidly diminishes over the next seven to fourteen days.
*Makeup may be applied after several days, and you may appear comfortably in public at that time.
*Sutures are removed a week after your surgery.
*You may resume light activities during the first week, and most all other activities by the end of three weeks.
The Advanced Facelift Result
*Natural, rested, younger appearance with smoother skin, a cleaner jaw line, and tighter neck.
*Beautiful and graceful, not a “wind-tunnel” look.
*Presentable appearance in several days that just gets better over the next several months.
