Facelift Fort Worth

What Is A Facelift?

A facelift isn’t about changing who you are. It’s about giving you back a youthful appearance and making the way you look reflect the way you feel. With a caring approach and skillful precision, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Max Pekarev can help you achieve this type of result.

For patients in Fort Worth, facelift surgery offers a way to improve the skin elasticity of the face and neck and to combat the effects of:

  • Everyday stress.
  • Age and gravity.
  • Exposure to sunlight.
  • Hereditary predisposition.

Dr. Max and MP Plastic Surgery prioritize natural-looking, lasting results; patient comfort and safety; and subtle, artistic change. Learn more about our approach.

Benefits of A Facelift

Each facelift requires a customized approach because each person’s face—and goals—are different. Before your surgery date, Dr. Max will talk with you about what you want to achieve and determine the unique details of your procedure. He will also answer any questions you have about the surgery so that you enter the decision with confidence.

During your facelift, Dr. Max will make small incisions that are concealed in natural creases in front of or behind the ear. He then:

  • Tightens the underlying muscles and facial tissues.
  • Removes excess skin.
  • Depending on your needs, smooths and tightens the neck tissues.
  • Gently repositions the remaining skin.

To achieve natural-looking results, Dr. Max carefully manipulates different layers of the face to create a smooth, firm contour without over-tightening. His experience, expertise, and artistic eye help accomplish this goal.

Is A Facelift Right For Me?

There is no single “right” age to consider a facelift. Whether you are 40 or 70, it’s more important to evaluate your personal concerns and goals for your appearance.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Max will talk with you about what you want to achieve and help you decide if facelift surgery in Fort Worth is right for you. You might benefit from the procedure if you have any of these signs of aging:

  • Jowling (“turkey neck”).
  • Sagging cheeks.
  • Loose, wrinkled skin on the neck.

However, if you are mainly concerned with puffy eyelids, a sagging brow, or facial wrinkles, a facelift procedure will not address these concerns. Instead, Dr. Max may recommend other treatment options, such as eyelid surgery, brow lift, or facial fillers.

What Is Recovery From A Facelift Like?

You will be able to go home the same day as surgery. Most patients feel comfortable going out in public after about one week, and they are able to return to normal daily activities, including work, within 10 to 14 days. Dr. Max and his staff will support you with questions or concerns that come up during this time.

MP Plastic Surgery in Fort Worth typically advises patients to avoid strenuous activities for several weeks. This is to ensure a healthy and effective recovery. Our team can also recommend different camouflage strategies for makeup to wear while your initial bruising and swelling subsides.

By the conclusion of the recovery, you should see that the changes are subtle but the impact is significant. You can expect to look like yourself but with a renewed, refreshed, and younger appearance.
