Signs of aging are inevitable, but they don’t have to steal your confidence. Many patients use a facelift to restore a more youthful appearance. This rejuvenating procedure has many benefits and offers long-lasting results.
What is a Facelift?
A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to reduce the appearance of aging on the face. This procedure can address various concerns, including sagging skin, deep wrinkles, and jowls. A facelift can help you look younger, refreshed, and more confident.

Top Benefits of a Facelift
A facelift offers a range of benefits that can help you achieve a more youthful, refreshed look. Here are four key advantages of the procedure:
One of the primary benefits of a facelift is restoring a more youthful appearance to your face. By lifting and repositioning sagging skin and tissues, a facelift can help reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging, giving you a more vibrant, refreshed look.
Advances in facelift techniques have made it possible to achieve more natural-looking results than ever before. Dr. Sonneveld uses the most cutting-edge techniques that avoid the “pulled” or “windblown” appearance that was once associated with the procedure.
Another advantage of a facelift is that it is highly customizable. Your procedure can be tailored to your specific goals and facial structure and combined with other procedures if needed to achieve your desired results. Some patients may have a facelift paired with an eyelid lift, brow lift, or genioplasty.
While non-surgical treatments like Botox® and dermal fillers can provide temporary improvements, a facelift offers long-lasting results that can last for up to a decade. By repairing and repositioning the muscles and structural tissues of your face, a facelift can help you look and feel younger and more confident for years to come.
Facelift Procedure and Recovery
A facelift typically involves incisions made in front of and behind the ears and in the hairline. Your surgeon will then lift and reposition the underlying muscles and tissues, remove excess skin, and tighten the remaining skin.
Facelift recovery varies depending on the individual and the unique procedure, but most patients can return to work and normal activities within two weeks. After the procedure, you may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but these symptoms should subside within a week or two.
Am I a Candidate for a Facelift?
The best candidates for a facelift are generally in good health, do not smoke, and have realistic expectations for the procedure’s results. You may be a good candidate for a facelift if you have:
- Sagging skin and muscle in the face and neck
- Marionette lines, frown lines, and other wrinkles
- Jowls or a double chin
- Loss of facial volume
- Uneven or asymmetrical features
