What can a face-lift help me with?

The popular face-lift procedure can address signs of aging across your face, such as prominent wrinkles, jowls, or sagging skin. A face-lift supports and repositions the underlying tissue and skin to restore a youthful appearance.

Dr. Jindal is skilled in creating beautiful, natural-looking results so you can enjoy fewer wrinkles and a sharper jawline without the fear of appearing “overdone.” In addition, he can also provide other surgeries, such as eyelid surgery, to improve the appearance of the area above our eyes for an even brighter, more alert look.

Neck lifts further accentuate a face-lift by restoring the graceful appearance of your upper body, turning back the hands of time. A neck lift removes excess, sagging skin to give you the firm lines and contours you deserve.

Am I a candidate for a face-lift?

You may be a good candidate for a face-lift if you have significant facial concerns due to age, such as deep wrinkles in your face and neck or plentiful loose skin. You should also be in good health and have realistic expectations for your results.

Dr. Jindal conducts a thorough consultation with you before the procedure to ensure your satisfaction. He completes a physical examination and discusses your medical history and the medications you take.

He also considers your unique facial anatomy and level of skin laxity.

What can I expect after a face-lift?

Some swelling and bruising are typical after a face-lift, but this subsides after a few weeks. Dr. Jindal may advise general rest and recommend you avoid strenuous activities for a while. Be gentle with yourself as you heal.

While you recover from your facelift, be sure to:

  • Sleep with your head elevated
  • Get plentiful rest
  • Avoid strenuous work or exercise for around three to four weeks
  • Drink sufficient fluids
  • Eat soft foods, at least to start
  • Take any prescribed medications

If you combine your face-lift with an expert neck lift, the swelling and bruising in that area should also resolve within two weeks. After a month or so, the new contours of your face and neck become visible to you and others.
