How are Facelift Procedures Performed?

The facelift procedure is a bit different for every patient. For most patients, the procedure will tighten sagging skin, including the jowl area if it is excessively loose. Dr. McIntosh works with his patients individually to determine the best course of action for optimal results.

The details of the facelift surgery can be quite simple. The skin is freed from the underlying tissue and then pulled back and up. All excess is removed, giving the patient a more taut look with diminished wrinkles.

A face-lift can take up to eight hours, though in most cases, the procedure is considerably shorter. Some healing time is required, but the result of a facelift procedure is immediately noticed.

How Much Does Facelift Surgery Cost?

The price of a facelift varies for each patient. Only after a consultation with the doctor will you better understand what you can expect to pay. Dr. McIntosh offers patient financing and accepts all major credit cards.

Am I a Good Candidate for Facelift Surgery?

An ideal facelift candidate is:

• Seeking long-term results
• In good health
• At or near an ideal weight
• Free of health conditions that increase complications
• A non-smoker
• Able to understand the face-lift procedure, possible risks and recovery time
• Psychologically healthy overall with realistic expectations of expected results

Dr. McIntosh wants to ensure that a facelift is the right choice for you. He will discuss what you are hoping to accomplish with a facelift and review the available options. Before you commit to anything, he will make certain you are comfortable with your decision and that you understand the expectations. Because a facelift is such a major procedure, this consultation is very important.

Dr. Bryan C. McIntosh urges his patients to remember that your comfort with the surgeon is equally as important as the cost of the entire procedure. Dr. McIntosh would like a chance to meet with you and discuss the results you want to ensure that this is the right choice for you and your body. All of your options will be carefully reviewed.
