What Is a Facelift?

A facelift is a cosmetic procedure with a focus on tightening the skin and underlying tissues of the face to address signs of aging. Namely, a deep-plane targets concerns such as loose or drooping skin, wrinkles and fine lines, and jawline concerns (jowls, double chin). Through the removal of excess skin and tightening of the subdermal tissues, your surgeon can create a renewed, more youthful appearance. However, it is vital to work with a board-certified surgeon to see optimal results and avoid an artificial stretched look.

Mini Facelift

A mini facelift provides similar results but through a milder procedure. It still addresses signs of aging around the lower face but takes a more conservative approach. Less skin is removed, and only minor tissue repositioning is conducted. This approach also tends to lead to a shorter, milder recovery. A mini one is best for patients with less extensive signs of aging and who want more subtle changes.


  • Personalized results: Each procedure is adapted to match your individual concerns and needs, providing results that look natural for your facial structure.
  • Long-lasting improvements: With proper care and lifestyle choices results can last for years following your surgery.
  • Perfect for combination: A facelift can readily be combined with other procedures for comprehensive aesthetic rejuvenation.
  • Target multiple concerns: It can address almost any aging-related cosmetic for the lower face, from wrinkles to skin laxity.

Am I a Good Candidate?

The ideal facelift candidate will have three qualities: a positive, realistic outlook, overall good health, and an understanding of the procedure’s benefits and limitations. All three of these factors can be covered during your consultation, during which you can explore treatment options, discuss your goals and family history, and ask as many questions as you would like.

Overview of the Procedure Process

Dr. Dhir works with each patient closely, ensuring an attentive, patient-centric approach to cosmetic surgery. At every point of the process, he provides support and information to ensure patients can make their decisions with comfort and confidence


The process begins with a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Dhir. This is the best opportunity to fully discuss your goals, expectations, and hopes for your procedure. There are no wrong questions, and the goal is to open an effective two-way communication. Dr. Dhir can learn about you, and you can learn about the procedures available in detail. If a facelift is the best option for you, then you can move on to preparing.


There are a few steps that will have you ready. These can vary for some patients but mostly will include:

  • Not eating or drinking before the procedure
  • Stopping certain medications (such as blood thinners)
  • Avoiding nicotine and some herbal supplements
  • Readying your home for recovery
  • Planning for someone to drive you home from surgery

The Surgery

The procedure begins with receiving anesthesia to ensure a painless experience. Dr. Dhir will then move step-by-step through your surgery, adjusting the tissue to match your personalized plan. Once complete, he will suture all incisions closed and ensure you are ready to return home or to specialized after care facility to pamper your healing needs. The total time is usually about is 4-6 hours depending on procedures involved.

Recovery & Results

The first stop is our recovery room, where you can wait in comfort while the anesthesia wears off. Once you are ready, you can return home or aftercare facility with someone to drive you. Most patients will benefit most from about 1 to 2 weeks of downtime away from work and strenuous activities. After about 1 week, patients will see Dr. Dhir for a follow-up appointment to track their healing progress. Recovery is generally well-tolerated, with patients experiencing some bruising, swelling, and discomfort. However, these are typically mild enough to manage with over-the-counter medication. After about 6 days, patients can return for a check-up visit with Dr. Dhir to monitor their recovery and results.

Some immediate improvements are visible almost immediately after the surgery. However, it is important to remember that your full results are apparent only once the swelling has gone down. Your final results will likely be settled a couple of months after surgery, once all residual swelling has faded.
