Our Austin facelift is a surgical procedure performed to improve visible signs of aging. It can reduce sagging and folds of skin on the cheeks, restore a defined, youthful jawline, and resolve excess drooping skin or facial fat. A facelift is a custom procedure and may be performed alone, or in combination with a custom neck lift.


What is a Facelift?

Technically known as rhytidectomy, a facelift is an aesthetic surgical procedure performed to correct age-related changes to the face that occur when the skin becomes looser and less elastic, and fat deposits decrease in some areas and increase in others.

This procedure restores a refreshed, youthful contour to the face, tightens loosened skin, and softens the appearance of wrinkles, without looking tight or unnatural. Dr. Leeman uses his artistic eye to give you the results you want – you’ll come away looking like yourself, only better!

What Can I Expect With a Facelift Procedure?

Medications will be administered for your comfort. The exact procedure will vary, depending on the issues being addressed and your aesthetic goals. In a traditional facelift procedure, an incision is made beginning in the hairline at the temple, continuing around the ear, and ending in the lower scalp. Through this incision, underlying tissues are repositioned, fat may be sculpted or redistributed, and the deeper layers of the muscles and tissues are restored and tightened for a very natural look.

What is Recovery Like andHow Much Downtime After a Facelift?

The recovery time can vary from one week to several weeks, depending on the individual and the extent of the procedure. Most people are able to return to work and normal activities between 10 and 14 days after our Austin facelift surgery. However, some swelling and bruising may take up to three weeks to disappear completely. Please keep in mind that sun exposure should be limited. We advise against any strenuous activity for at least three weeks after facelift surgery.

Facelift FAQ's

Complications and risks specific to facelift surgery include nerve injury, bruising and swelling, infection, adverse reactions to anesthesia, and problems with the healing of the skin. Smokers have a higher risk of complications in the healing process, so must quit at least several weeks before the procedure.
