The most visible signs of aging present themselves on the face or neck. Wrinkles, creases, sagging skin, jowl lines and tired or aged appearance are among the most noticeable conditions. As you age, gravity, sun exposure, and stress can all have an effect on the vitality of your face. At Las Colinas Centre For Plastic Surgery, we offer Dallas face lift surgery and Dallas neck lift surgery that will give you a younger, more contoured face to match how you feel within.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Whetstone of Las Colinas Centre For Plastic Surgery has over 25 years of experience restoring youthful appearance for men and women alike. Both face lift surgery and neck lifts are effective procedures for improving signs of aging on your most visible features. Dr. Whetstone is one of the top Dallas plastic surgeons and has the knowledge to help you understand both procedure and decide which, if not both, will better serve your physical needs and meet your goals.

What Is A Face Lift And Neck Lift?

Both face and neck lifts are effective plastic surgery procedures for improving on the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and loose skin. When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, both can help you achieve long lasting results and dramatic improvement to facial appearance.

Face lift surgery is the plastic surgery technique of pulling skin at the cheeks back towards your forehead and hairline removing excess skin and pockets of fat as necessary. At Las Colinas Centre For Plastic Surgery, we are dedicated to performing face lift surgery with individualized results. There are various types of face lift surgeries, each individually focused on a specific area of the face. During a consultation, Dr. Whetstone will evaluate your face, skin and bone structure to help you decide on the technique best suited for your wishes and goals.

Neck lift surgery is the plastic surgery technique of pulling excess skin from under the chin, jawline or jowls removing excess skin while tightening and smoothing remaining skin in order to create a more defined neck and jaw line.

Benefits Of Face Lift Surgery

While physical signs of aging may be a natural part of growing older, Las Colinas Centre For Plastic Surgery in Dallas offers patients safe and effective opportunities for rejuvenated facial appearance. If you have developed deep creases between your nose and mouth or your jawline has begun to sag or you have loose skin around your neck, schedule a consultation with Dr. Whetstone today to learn more about the benefits of face lift and necks lifts. Our patients have seen dramatic improvement to tired appearance, wrinkles, loose, saggy skin and other visible signs of aging.

Recovery From Face Lift Surgery

Successful recovery from face lift surgery requires a commitment to self-care both before surgery and post-operatively. Understanding what recovery will be like and carefully following post-operative instructions will help to ensure a successful recovery.  It is important to remember that each body heals differently, so please maintain understanding of this along with patience as you recover after Dr. Whetstone has completed your surgery, you will need to spend some time in a recovery room until he is confident you are physically stable and ready to go home. Before you are discharged, you will receive detailed recovery instructions and a post-operative appointment will be scheduled.  You will be placed in a bandage after surgery, which will be removed the next day and will be required to wear a chinstrap for the first week. You will to arrange for a ride home after discharge.

Recovery from a face or neck lift procedure typically lasts around 7 to 10 days. Patients can expect bandaging around the neck and face to aid in minimizing swelling or bruising. Swelling, bruising, and a feeling of tightness are normal side effects of the procedure and will begin to subside within 1-2 weeks.

Dr. Whetstone and his caring staff at Las Colinas Centre For Plastic Surgery will provide you with detailed information and instructions in order to best equip you for a smooth recovery and successful procedure.
