Your Facelift Consultation

Natural-looking results are essential for satisfying facelift surgery. Patients from Battle Creek, Lansing, Kalamazoo, and the greater Grand Rapids area recognize that for good results, they need to be able to trust their surgeon to create subtle, effective changes that make sense for their look and objectives.

Dr. Holley firmly believes that an effective facelift procedure should restore a more balanced, refreshed appearance to your features, but at the same time retain the unique characteristics that make you special. In your consultation, you and Dr. Holley will take the time to discuss your goals and options so that together you can strive for a result that looks balanced and natural.

Facelift Questions to Discuss with Dr. Holley

  • What type of facelift or neck lift would be best for my facial structure and aging pattern?
  • What steps do you take to prevent and hide scars with each approach?
  • Should I consider an additional procedure such as a brow lift to ensure balanced results?
  • May I meet with one of your previous facelift or neck lift patients to learn more about their experience?
  • Can your office suggest financing options that could fit my needs?

Your Facelift Procedure

Dr. Holley has trained extensively in a full range of facial plastic surgery techniques, including microsurgery and other complex approaches. He will discuss your goals with you thoroughly before making a suggestion for your personalized facelift procedure. Dr. Holley uses a variety of surgical approaches to fine-tune facelift and neck lift results to the individual patient. The two basic options include:

Facelift: Focused on the mid- to lower-face area, this procedure can dramatically reduce the appearance of larger folds and smaller “static” wrinkles from the upper cheeks to the jaw line. In the typical approach, Dr. Holley will create a thin incision beginning just above the ear and extending in a gentle curve along the front of the ear, to end behind the earlobe. Through this incision your surgeon will lift, tighten, and reposition the facial muscles that extend from the cheek to the jaw line, creating a younger-looking contour.

Neck lift: Focused on the chin, jaw line, and central neck area, a neck lift tightens and smooths the “neck wattle” and loose tissues near the chin caused by age, genetics or other factors. Depending on the causes of your loose neck tissue, Dr. Holley may recommend a neck lift that will tighten the loose neck muscles, eliminate sagging skin through an incision hidden below the chin, or remove sagging pockets of fat from the neck or lower-jaw area using targeted facial liposuction.

To ensure your comfort throughout the surgical process, neck lifts and facelifts are performed at our plastic surgery centers under general anesthesia. Most facial procedures take two to four hours to perform, although your surgeon will extend your operative time if you receive an added procedure such as eyelid surgery or facial implants for the cheeks or chin to complete your results.

Facelift Recovery

Facelift recovery is a highly individual process, but most patients feel comfortable going out within two weeks. Cover-up makeup can typically be worn within five days of surgery, and the typical patient feels fully recovered within a month or so.
