Your face is the first thing anybody notices about you. No doubt then, everybody wants to have perfect and captivating facial features. However, with time, your skin experiences several changes that get worse due to factors such as excessive exposure to the sun, stress, gravity and lifestyle choices like smoking. If you feel that the changes in your skin make you appear older than your years; or your friends tell you that you seem grumpy or tired all the time, it is time to consult us about cosmetic enhancement. The gold standard in facial rejuvenation is the facelift procedure.

What is the facelift procedure?

Facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that eliminates the aging signs on your face and gives you a rejuvenated appearance. Facelift is medically known as rhytidectomy and it restores the youthful appearance of your face and neck area. You can get rid of various concerns including wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, the hollows under your eyes and chin fat.

Dr. DiFrancesco uses facelift to enhance your natural features and does not believe in changing them so that your results appear natural and complement your anatomy. She has the expertise and skills to ensure you never have to suffer from that ‘pulled’ look after facelift which has kept many patients away from this beneficial cosmetic procedure. At DiFrancesco Plastic Surgery, we offer a highly customizable facelift procedure that is tailor made for your individual facial anatomy and to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Who needs a facelift?

Everybody’s skin ages differently and that is why there is no ideal age to undergo the facelift procedure. When the visible changes in your skin begin to affect your appearance and confidence, it is the best time to consider getting a facelift. An ideal candidate for the procedure must be in good physical and emotional health. Just like for any other surgical procedure, you must also not be a smoker.

Most of our patients consult us when the sagging skin, lines and wrinkles on the face and neck begins to bother them. When you look older than how you feel, a facelift can help regain your youthful look.

What is the facelift procedure?

Facelift at DiFrancesco Plastic Surgery offers different techniques to help you achieve optimal results from the facelift procedure. These techniques are personalized depending on the amount of correction you require and the extent of your procedure. You can get the full facelift or the mini facelift to help you achieve your desired cosmetic enhancement.

The different techniques we use for your procedure ensure that you get long lasting results that can take almost a decade off your appearance. Dr. DiFrancesco makes your incisions well hidden within your hairline or behind the ears so that you get minimal scarring. Any other facial concerns you may be experiencing can be addressed with additional surgical or non surgical treatments offered at our center to give you an overall refreshed appearance.

What results can be expected from your facelift?

You should be prepared to take a week or two off from work so that you can recover from your facelift surgery. Follow up appointments will be scheduled for you that check your progress and healing and it is important that you keep up with these to ensure all is going as expected. It is also imperative that you follow all aftercare instructions carefully since these will ensure you have a smooth recovery. We recommend that our facelift patients avoid any strenuous activities for about 2 weeks. Most of our patients see their final results within 3 months and while your results will be stunning, they cannot be permanent since the skin continues to age. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will help you retain your results for longer. Also, as and when required, Dr. DiFrancesco can help you touchup your results with injectables and other non surgical treatments. With our expertise, you will enjoy youthful skin tightening and a well defined chin and jawline that will boost your confidence.

About Atlanta, GA

Atlanta is the capital city of Georgia. Atlanta played an important role in both the Civil War and the 1960s Civil Rights Movement. The Atlanta History Center showcases the city’s past, while the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site is dedicated to the African–American leader’s work. The Centennial Olympic Park downtown was built for the 1996 Olympics and encompasses the massive Georgia Aquarium. After being almost burned down during the American Civil War, the city rose to become a national center of commerce and the unofficial capital of the “New South”. Today, it has gained international prominence as a major air transportation hub with the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport being the busiest airport in the world since 1998. Visitors can enjoy the dynamic southern culture threaded throughout the arts district of Midtown, quirky neighborhoods of the east, and the multi ethnic enclaves along the Buford Highway. From art and theater, music and film, to festivals, sports, parks, and recreation, there is something for everybody in Georgia.
