Our goal is to make sure that after your facelift, you look like a more rested version of yourself.
Facial rejuvenation, which often includes a facelift, can help reverse the signs of facial aging. Fort Worth plastic surgeon Jon Kurkjian, MD is sub-specialty trained for this aesthetically demanding procedure.
Facelift Surgery Benefits
Facelift surgery can help address some of the key signs of facial aging, including:
- Hanging Jowls
- Sagging Neck Skin
- Drooping Cheeks
A facelift is an excellent option for men or women who want to look refreshed again. There is no defined upper age limit for facelift surgery, though we recommend that you are in good health and have the approval of your primary care physician before proceeding with facial rejuvenation. During the consultation, Dr. Kurkjian will evaluate your overall health status, facial anatomy, and cosmetic goals. Most importantly, Dr. Kurkjian strives to formulate a detailed and comprehensive plan that is ideal for you.
In order to avoid a wind-swept or overly tight appearance, Dr. Kurkjian tightens and lifts the deeper layers of the face and removes only the excess skin. This not only avoids a pulled look, but also extends the duration of your results and improves the visibility of scarring.
Aging is a complex process and thus often requires a multi-modality approach. Dr. Kurkjian will commonly combine different techniques including chemical peels, dermabrasion, dermal fillers or fat transfers (fat grafts) to help address all of the different ways that the human face loses that youthful exuberance.
Throughout his training, Dr. Kurkjian was trained in the most advanced facial rejuvenation techniques directly from pioneers in the field of facelifting. It is this unique experience that enables Dr. Kurkjian to individualize every procedure for every patient.
Our goal is to provide every patient with detailed care and attention to make the facelift experience at our practice a safe, comfortable and memorable one.
Dr. Kurkjian insists that every patient be monitored the night after surgery by a nurse trained to take care of your specific needs. The day after the procedure, your dressing is removed. Initial swelling usually lessens within a week and any bruising typically resolves after 2 weeks. Most patients feel comfortable returning to a normal social calendar within 2-3 weeks after their procedure.
