What Is a Facelift?

Plastic surgeon Dr. Mark W. Stalder provides a full spectrum of facial cosmetic surgery in New Orleans, LA. Among our most sought-out procedures at Stalder Plastic Surgery is a facelift. This treatment focuses on specific regions of the face to smooth lax features and wrinkles to produce a younger-looking, taut appearance. Based upon your aesthetic goals, a facelift can focus on the lines and wrinkles near the eyes, the mid-face area and cheeks, the bottom two-thirds including the mouth, jowls, neck, and more for an all-around younger look. The facelift method used depends on your desired outcome, skin condition, amount of laxity present, lifestyle, age, and anatomy. Some individuals are of age and have skin laxity for a full facelift while others may only want a mid-facelift. Dr. Stalder is a skilled surgeon who completely understands the anatomy and complex intricacies of a facelift procedure. The goal is to create a natural appearance that's smooth and appealing.

How Does a Facelift Work?

No matter the issue you wish to correct, there are numerous facelifts to consider. Some facelifts address the upper portion of the face while others focus on the middle and lower. Moreover, some methods are a bit more invasive than others. It's very common for some patients to have a brow lift, forehead lift, or fillers and BOTOX® to complement and enhance their results. A few of the more known facelift options include:

  • Full Facelift
    A common surgery for older adults, the full or "traditional" facelift generally puts an incision near the hairline, extending down to the temples, stopping near the base of the ears. The underlying facial muscles are delicately stretched and tightened to create a lifted appearance, which diminishes excessive loose skin and droopy features. A full facelift is reserved for men and women who have visible signs of aggressive aging. Several methods may be used with this lift, including upper or lower blepharoplasty to address the eyes or neck reduction for the lower region.
  • Mid-Facelift
    Incorporating a similar technique to the mini facelift, the cheek lift (known as a mid-facelift) focuses on the hollow and lax areas close to the cheekbones and the upper jaw. This lift works well for those who desire improvement in the middle to lower region of the face, including the jowls.
  • Lower Facelift
    This lift corrects the chin area and neck and in many cases, the jowls. Methods of a nonsurgical nature, such as KYBELLA® or laser skin tightening, can also be applied for chin reduction to attain a younger, tighter-looking neck.
  • Mini Facelift
    During a mini facelift, a thin, small incision is made around the ears to elevate the skin, which enhances the mouth and jawline. This method creates subtle improvements that look beautiful and natural.

After surgery, you will be monitored before you are released to go home with a friend or family member. Before your facelift, Dr. Stalder or someone on his staff will plan your follow-up visits and discuss tips to make you recover faster and more comfortably. It's normal to have swelling and puffiness, some moderate soreness, and discomfort, which can be helped by prescription pain medication. You should look and feel better after several weeks. You will see a smoother and younger-looking facial appearance. Overall, your face will be lifted and younger looking.

I trusted the process from the start and in the course of a year, the work done to my body is unbelievable. The more I heal the more beautiful everything is. From him to his 5 star staff, they are truly some wonderful people. My breasts look amazing!!! I still can’t believe how it all came together! Anytime I had a question him and his team were there to provide the answers almost in the blink of an eye! I am so honored to have worked with Dr Stalder and his team. I will never forget you all as I continue on with my life. You all were a special part of my breast cancer journey. Waking up to Abby checking on me also warmed my heart. She’s such a sweetheart ! I love you all and pray you continue to do an amazing job with individuals dealing with cancer. You have restored my dignity and helped me to love myself again.

I have fully recovered from my Diep flap procedure and reconstructive surgery from Dr. Stalder. I could not be happier with the outcome! Initially I was nervous to go thru the surgery because my situation was a little different. I had a prophylactic mastectomy with implants about 10 years ago and after multiple implant replacement surgeries due to issues, I also had a breast implant associated lymphoma scare. I was recommended to and sought consult with Dr. Mark Stalder. Dr. Stalder was able to resolve ALL of my issues! I couldn't be happier and really have appreciated Dr. Stalder and his amazing Team, Jess and Abby! Not only do my breasts look and feel amazing, the areas where tissues was harvested also look amazing, a nice little perk :) Thank you Dr. Stalder, Abby and Jess for everything you have done for me!

I had considered having a rhinoplasty for several years but was nervous that I would come out looking like a completely different person. Additionally, I had a severely damaged septum making it difficult to breathe through one side of my nose. After meeting with Dr. Stalder and the exceptional team at Stalder Plastic Surgery I was convinced that I would be in capable hands. Dr. Stalder took the time to listen to my concerns and answered all of my questions. I am currently 6 weeks post op and I could not be happier! Dr. Stalder made the changes that I had wanted for so long while maintaining the integrity of my nose. The subtle changes didn't make me look like a different person but rather a better version of myself! I am thrilled with the results and would absolutely recommend Dr. Stalder and Stalder Plastic Surgery for all of your needs and especially if you are considering surgery. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon, you should absolutely meet with Dr. Stalder. Currently I receive Botox at Stalder Plastic Surgery and I am always pleased with the very natural looking results. The office is stunning and the staff are kind and helpful. While I am not ready for anything else right now, I know that I will not trust anyone else but Dr. Stalder for my future aesthetic needs.

I had Botox done by Dr Stalder and it has been the best Botox I’ve ever received. I’ve been to plenty of different kind of providers for Botox but Dr Stalder did the best I’ve ever had. He’s professional but also easy going and easy to talk to about what you’re looking for. Jess and the rest of the staff are great at taking care of you to help you get the appointment that works best for you and making sure you are happy with your results. I’m looking forward to more treatments here at Stalder Plastic Surgery!
