Facelift Surgery For Men – Troy, Rochester Hills & Detroit Michigan Areas
As you age, your face changes. Your youthful chiseled profile begins to lose definition. A facelift can restore your youthful appearance to look like a naturally younger version of you.
What Is A Facelift?
A facelift in Birmingham, MI may help reposition sagging tissues, smooth creases, define a jawline or neck that has been hidden by sagging jowls, and smooth sagging neck skin. Nothing looks pulled, tight or operated. Rather, you look like a younger, restored beautiful version of you.
In a traditional facelift, Dr. Ellen gently lifts the skin of the face, so the underlying tissues and muscles can be tightened. In addition, Dr. Ellen may remove some fat and excess skin. Then the skin is repositioned over the face, resulting is a smooth, fresh face.
A facelift can reduce signs of aging to a great extent, but it cannot reverse sun damage to the skin or remove all facial wrinkles around the eyes, below the nose, and around the lips.
Although a facelift can make your face appear younger and healthier, taking years off your face, your face will continue to age. If you are experiencing anxiety over aging, a facelift may increase self-confidence and reduce anxiety while growing older.
Am I A Good Candidate For A Facelift?
As with other cosmetic procedures, you are more likely to be happy with the results of your facelift if you have clear, realistic expectations about what the surgery can achieve and if you share these with Dr. Ellen in her Birmingham, MI office.

How Long Is Recovery From A Facelift?
Facelift surgery near Detroit usually takes several hours. You may be able to go home that day, but people sometimes spend one night in the hospital.
Your face will be bandaged after surgery, and the dressings are usually removed within one or two days. If a drainage tube has been placed, it will also be removed one or two days after surgery. Dr. Ellen will remove your stitches in five to ten days. You may be prescribed pain medications.
Expect to have facial swelling and bruising. Cold compresses can help, as well keeping your head elevated and still as much as possible.
