About Facelifts

Facelift techniques have undergone a revolutionary change in the last decade. Newer techniques, combined with injectable fillers such as fat, Juvéderm or Radiesse, are used to ensure the end results. Traditionally, a surgical facelift tightens skin for facial effect. Patients can experience a new appearance.  Dr. Boyd offers facelifts to interested patients in the Ann Arbor, and Birmingham MI, areas.

Who are Candidates for Facelift?

Our facelift patients have ranged in age from the thirties into the seventies. As with all facial plastic surgery, however, good health and realistic expectations are prerequisites. Patients can opt for a facelift at any time. During a consultation, Dr. Boyd may look over medical history to ensure optimum health. Before opting for a facelift, it is important patients go over all surgical information including risks, payment options, and possible results.

What to  Expect After a Facelift

Typically, for the first week after surgery, you may engage in relaxed activities; normal activities may resume during the second week. Full healing may take up to three months. During those three months, patients may apply dressings or ointments to incisions sites. Swelling, redness, and pain will be present and subside after time.
