Benefits

Women and men (usually between the ages of 40 and 70) from around Austin choose facelift surgery for lasting facial rejuvenation. Dr. Kerr and Dr. Blagg perform these procedures to give their patients a variety of improvements including:

  • Restoring a firm look to the cheeks
  • Softening wrinkles and creases on the face and neck
  • Sculpting the jaw line
  • Eliminating a double chin

When it comes to facial plastic surgery, natural-looking results are a must. Some patients achieve a more impressive improvement by combining their face lift with brow and eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, or neck lift surgery. Dr. Kerr or Dr. Blagg might suggest a non-surgical treatment such as an injectable filler or BOTOX® Cosmetic for Austin-area patients who have less advanced signs of aging. Your doctor will take the time to thoroughly review your options when you visit him for your consultation and help you develop realistic expectations for your outcome.

Dr. Kerr Discusses Facelift

What to Expect

Our doctors perform facelift surgery in a certified operating room, either as an outpatient procedure or with an optional overnight stay. You will be put under general anesthesia, so you will wake up when your procedure is complete.

During the surgery, your doctor places incisions in an area that's concealed within the hairline and in natural creases of the face along the front of the ear. He then carefully lifts the skin and repositions the underlying sagging facial muscles and tissue. In many cases, our doctors replace lost volume with fat grafting during a facelift, as well. The outer skin is then re-draped over the rejuvenated facial structures before the excess is trimmed away.

Recovery & Results

After surgery, you will need an adult to drive you home and help you out for at least the first 24 hours. For most facelift patients, discomfort is minimal and may be controlled with prescription medication as necessary.

To minimize swelling and bruising, be sure to keep your head elevated for the first few days after surgery, even while sleeping. Swelling typically peaks at around 4 days and then gradually dissipates. It is normal for your face and neck to feel tight for approximately the first week.

After about 2 weeks, you'll likely be ready to see friends and family. At this point, residual bruising can usually be covered with makeup.

Most patients are ready to resume light activity within 10 to 14 days. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least the first month following a facelift. It is common to experience mild numbness during the healing process, as well.

Common Facelift Questions

How much does a facelift cost in Austin?

Because each facelift is personalized to the individual needs, goals, and facial anatomy of each patient, there isn't a set price for this procedure. The cost varies with the complexity of the procedure, the addition of complementary procedures, and other factors. That said, the general price range is $8,000 to $10,000.

Once you and your surgeon understand the particulars of your procedure, you will be provided with a written quote during your consultation.

What procedures are often combined with a facelift?

For most people, aging is not limited to the lower face. Our doctors often combine facelift surgery with other facial surgery procedure to provide the same caliber of rejuvenation for the whole face. These are some of the most common:

What is a mini facelift? Is it right for me?

Our doctors perform a minimally-invasive MACS facelift for younger patients who share a few common qualities:

  • Only early signs of aging
  • No need for neck lift surgery
  • Good skin elasticity

This procedure, which may postpone the need for a complete facelift, involves smaller incisions and reduced downtime.
