Facelift plastic surgery, also known as rhytidectomy, is a popular cosmetic procedure used to combat facial aging and restore a natural, youthful look to your facial structure. Multiple facial reconstruction or rejuvenation surgeries can be used alone or combined to produce age-defying results and efficiently reduce the appearance of wrinkles, creases, and folds on the face. Facelift plastic surgery can reverse the effects of aging 7-10 years and has tremendous benefits for individuals seeking to achieve dramatic, beautiful, and natural-looking results in one session.
Facial plastic surgery requires the subtle and meticulous hand of an expert plastic surgeon. With over twenty years of surgical experience and an eye for detail, Dr. Bassichis expertly incorporates the most advanced and up to date techniques for facelift cosmetic surgery at Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center.
In an initial consultation, you and the doctor will agree on the aesthetics and procedures before your surgery to obtain the exact results you want. There are various facial plastic or facial reconstructive treatments you may choose from to achieve your desired aesthetic ideal. Dr. Bassichis may also recommend an accompanying procedure such as eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), chin enhancement, nose surgery (rhinoplasty), or fractionated CO2 laser resurfacing to produce enhanced results alongside a facelift.

What Are the Key Benefits Of a Facelift?
The key benefits for facelift surgery include:
- Dramatically restores a firm, youthful look to your facial structure
- Corrects sagging skin, jowls, wrinkles, lines, and creases
- Achieves natural, refreshed results without a (tight or pulled) look
- Highly customizable
- Reverses years of aging with a single treatment
- Long-lasting results
Am I a Candidate to Get a Facelift?
The best candidates for a facelift surgery must be in good health and have a well-rounded understanding of the procedure. This includes the potential risks, benefits, and costs of facelift surgery. A potential candidate must also maintain realistic expectations for the procedure.
A Facelift is Perfect For
Good candidates for a facelift may have any of the following signs of facial aging:
- Double Chin
- Lack of jawline definition
- Folds on the upper neck or sagging skin
- Deeply etched smile lines
- Lost cheek volume
- Marionette lines (present from side of the mouth to the chin)
- Lost volume of the face and sagging tissues
A Facelift is Not so Perfect for
You should not consider getting a facelift if you:
- Do not maintain realistic expectations
- Are going through emotional trauma
- Do not understand the risks, benefits, or costs
- Are not in good physical or mental health
How Old Do I Have to Be to Get A Facelift?
While there is no ideal age to get a facelift, some patients may start with a mini facelift or midface lift around the age of 35-45. A comprehensive full facelift or lower facelift is more likely to be done after the age of 45. In general, if you see a drastic improvement by pinching the skin in front of the earlobes and pulling the skin upwards and backward, then you may be a good candidate.
Facelift Surgical Techniques to Consider
Based on your unique needs, there are multiple facial rejuvenation surgeries to choose from for more stunning results.
The most popularly requested facelift surgeries requested by our Dallas patients include:
Otherwise known as a traditional facelift, this procedure is well suited for those who wish to remedy considerable problem areas and dramatically restore a more youthful and vibrant facial appearance. A full facelift consists of creating incisions around the ears and seamlessly into the hairline. Fat and skin are removed to smooth skin, redefine wrinkles, and create a more defined jawline, jowls, chin, and facial contour.
A midface lift, often referred to as a cheek lift or vertical facelift, targets the cheeks and under-eye hollows. This procedure helps to soften ‘marionette lines’ (present from the side of the mouth to chin) and elevates the corners of the mouth for a more rested look. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or micro-fat grafting are commonly paired with a mid-facelift for improved results.
A lower facelift focuses on correcting facial aging signs by the neck, ear to mouth, and down. This is a suitable procedure for patients who have developed jowls, loose skin, and lost a significant amount of collagen and elasticity under the neck and chin area. Removing skin and fat from this area helps remove the drooping “turkey neck” look due to hereditary factors or the natural aging process.
A mini facelift is uniquely designed for younger patients who have general skin looseness, or mild jowls, but have yet to show significant signs of aging or wrinkles. A mini facelift will tighten the face and jowl area but is not as invasive or dramatic as a traditional facelift.

Facelifts are a highly customizable procedure with dramatic and instant results. After an in-depth consultation with Dr. Bassichis, a surgical plan is designed to achieve your desired look. The surgery involves expertly marking the face and placing inconspicuous incisions around the natural creases of the ears and hairline, and in some cases, under the chin or around the neck’s jowls. The skin is then expertly removed or repositioned to “lift” and elevate sagging tissues, skin, and loose muscles to create a more youthful and vibrant look. Once Dr. Bassichis has achieved your aesthetic ideal, the incision is closed with either stitches or a compression garment that will allow the tissues to heal.

Facelift surgery can take about 3-6 hours, depending on the complexity of the procedure or the use of combination procedures to produce enhanced results.
What Should I Expect in Terms of Recovery After My Facelift?
Like all surgeries, it is important to listen to your doctor’s pre-op and post-op directions. It is recommended to get some bed rest directly after your surgery. Medication can be used to subdue bruising and swelling in the first two days when it is at its worst. In most cases, your stitches or bandages will be removed 5-10 days after surgery, and normal activities can be resumed within a few weeks. Expect a full facelift surgery recovery after a few months; at this time, your incisions would heal, and the superficial tissues and underlying muscles would have significantly changed to reveal a tighter, rested, and more youthful appearance.
Dr. Bassichis will give you detailed instructions on fully recovering from your facelift cosmetic surgery in the post-operative period. He will discuss in detail:
- Adequate Recovery Bandages and Ointments
- Incision Cleaning and Bandage Changes
- Pain and Antibiotic Medication Management
- Learning How to Sleep During Recovery Comfortably
- Best Practice to Promote Healing, Reduce Inflammation and Maintain Your Look
Are There Any Risks Involved with Facelift Surgery?
General risks for facelift surgery include:
- Poor scarring and healing
- Severe bruising
- Nerve injury
With all cosmetic surgery, there is always a possibility for complications. The best way to ensure beautiful and long-lasting results is to look for a plastic surgeon with a proven track record in his field. Dr. Bassichis has extensive experience with facelift procedures and makes an effort to ensure a comfortable and safe surgical experience for his patients.
