Face Lift in Baltimore, MD
When it comes to anti-aging procedures, few are as well-known as the face lift - and for good reason. The facelift procedure can address almost all signs of aging in the face to take several years off of the appearance. Art of Balance Wellness Spa is proud to offer this treatment to patients living in and around Columbia, Baltimore and Ellicott City, Maryland.
What is a Face Lift?
A facelift is a cosmetic technique that addresses signs of aging in the face. Primarily, a facelift is performed to address lines, wrinkles and sagging skin that develop over the years. The jowls and lower face are the areas of the face that benefit the most from the facelift technique, although the skin tightening benefits of a facelift will be noticeable throughout the appearance. Many patients choose a facelift over other rejuvenation treatments because it produces long-lasting and even permanent results, and can be combined with other facial surgeries for enhanced benefits.
How Much Does a Face Lift Cost?
Like many cosmetic surgeries, the cost of a face lift can vary significantly depending on the treatment goals and needs of the patient. To determine the cost of your facelift treatment, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Banks’ team. During your consultation, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan that includes the exact cost of your treatment. In an effort to make this and other treatments as affordable as possible, we offer flexible financing options.
What is the Face Lift Treatment Like?
The facelift procedure can be performed under local or general anesthesia depending on your treatment plan. Treatments that require general anesthesia will be performed at our local surgery center. To perform the surgery, incisions will be made along the hairline and around the back of the ears, where they will be well-hidden. Through these incisions, we will remove excess skin and tighten the remaining skin to refresh the appearance and create the desired results.
What Can I Expect After the Face Lift Treatment?
After a facelift, you will need to take at least two weeks off of work and other activities. During this time, you can expect swelling, bruising and discomfort in the face. These symptoms are most severe within the first week, but we will provide you with a prescription for pain medication and clear guidelines to make your recovery as comfortable as possible. Patients can expect to be fully healed about 6 to 8 weeks after their surgery.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from My Face Lift?
The results from a facelift will be visible immediately, and will become more noticeable as the body heals and any side effects fade. The facelift results will be long-lasting, and many patients enjoy results that last for several years. However, these results cannot be considered permanent because they do not prevent signs of aging from developing in the face. Although you will look several years younger, you can still expect the face to change as a result of the natural aging process.
Is a Face Lift Right for Me?
If you are looking for a comprehensive facial rejuvenation treatment that can reverse signs of aging with results that last for many years, you might be a good fit for a facelift. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for this treatment is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Banks’ team at Art of Balance Wellness Spa. During your consultation, we’ll review your treatment goals and determine whether a face lift is the best option for you.
