Am I a candidate for Facelift surgery?

Most individuals who desire a surgical facelift experience saggy skin near the middle or lower parts of the face. Depending on your personal needs, a facelift can address certain signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, or folds. When considering a facelift, age doesn't always dictate the best time. Instead, we will listen to your goals, assess your skin, and determine what facelift technique might work best for you. Before leaving your consultation, Dr. Eagan will create a tailored treatment plan. The technique she uses for her patients will vary and depends on skin elasticity. Additionally, facelift candidates should maintain good health, avoid smoking, and set realistic expectations.

How is facelift surgery performed?

No matter the issue, we offer several types of facelifts that can address your cosmetic needs. Some facelifts treat the upper portion of the face while others focus on the middle and lower. Also, some techniques are more invasive and intricate than others. For enhanced results, individuals may combine other types of treatments, such as a brow lift, chin augmentation, or dermal fillers. Some of the more known facelift techniques include a full, mid, lower, or mini facelift. Dr. Eagan will discuss each treatment method and help you select the best one for you.

What to Expect after facelift surgery

After your surgery, we will monitor your health before sending you home to recover. You will need a responsible friend or family member to drive you home. Before your facelift, Dr. Eagan or a member of her team will schedule your follow-up visits and provide aftercare instructions. It's normal to have bruising, swelling, and draining near the treatment area. If you experience these side effects, we can prescribe pain medication to reduce any discomfort. You should feel and look better after several weeks. Once you start to heal, your complexion will appear softer and more youthful. Overall, your face will look refreshed and rejuvenated.

How much does a facelift cost?

The total cost of your facelift will depend on the technique, anesthesia, and facility fees. During your consultation, Dr. Eagan will create your custom treatment plan, which will match your needs and goals. Once complete, she can discuss your fee estimates. Instead of choosing someone based on pricing, we highly recommend concentrating on finding an experienced surgeon, like Dr. Eagan. At New Orleans Plastic Surgery, we can help you find low-interest financing that will make your facelift easier to afford.

Should I get a surgical or nonsurgical facelift?

For moderate to severe skin sagging, facelift surgery is the best choice to significantly improve your appearance. During your consultation, Dr. Eagan will discuss your choices, including nonsurgical treatments, to help you decide which is best for your goals.

What about wrinkle fillers and relaxers over facelift surgery?
Wrinkle fillers and relaxers, like BOTOX and Juvéderm, have become more popular in recent years to improve fine lines and wrinkles. Also known as a liquid facelift, injectable wrinkle treatments usually help with early signs of aging, but the results are temporary. A facelift will produce more significant improvements than injectables with results that can last for a long time. Ask Dr. Eagan about nonsurgical wrinkle treatments in your consultation.

Will my results look natural?
Many patients worry that a facelift will make their skin look shiny, overly tight, or like they are in a wind tunnel. Dr. Eagan focuses on giving you results that look natural, so you appear refreshed and not fake.
