With summer comes sunlight, balmy breezes, and the anticipation of backyard BBQs, beach trips, and plenty of sun-kissed days. Why not have your reflection match the feeling of rejuvenation that comes with spring and summer? If you’re struggling with sagging skin, lines and wrinkles, or jowls, a facelift at Cosmetic Plastic Surgery & Laser Center of Maryland can help you put your best face forward this summer.

What is a Facelift?

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that targets the tell-tale signs of aging by removing excess skin and repositioning the underlying muscles and tissues of your face. Think of it as turning back the hands of time. Post-surgery, our patients often report looking and feeling ten years younger or more!

Why Choose a Facelift?

A facelift can help address a number of different concerns, from deep creases and sagging skin to droopy cheeks and jowls. If you’re in overall good health, have realistic expectations, are a nonsmoker, and struggling with visible signs of aging, a facelift is likely just the solution you’ve been looking for.

Before your surgery, we may ask you to stop taking or adjust the dosage of certain medications like blood thinners and NSAIDs, stop smoking if you’re a smoker, and maintain a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise.

Facelift Options

We offer a number of different facelift options. Which one is right for you depends on the results you’re looking for and the extent of the changes that need to be made. The facelifts we offer include:

  • Traditional facelift: This is the facelift you likely think of when you hear about a facelift. An incision is made along the hairline, the fat, tissue, and muscles under the skin are repositioned, and excess skin is removed.
  • SMAS facelift: This technique is also very common. During surgery, Dr. Ashruf will separate the SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system), which consists of the facial muscles, and then tighten those muscles and the facial skin to make you look a decade younger or more.
  • Mini facelift: This procedure is primarily used for patients who aren’t looking for a major change and typically involves smaller incisions.
  • Deep plane facelift: This more invasive facelift provides outstanding results! With this method, the SMAS is separated from the temple down and can address nasolabial folds and jowls.
  • Mid-facelift: As the name suggests, this facelift addresses the middle of the face and can address the nasolabial folds and sunken cheeks.
  • Skin-only facelift: This method does not involve the facial muscles or underlying tissue. Only the top layer of skin is repositioned and tightened. The results may not last as long as more traditional methods.
  • MACS: the MACS (Minimal Access Cranial Suspension) lift is for patients who are concerned about scarring. Because only small incisions are made near the ears, any scars will be almost invisible. The healing time for this facelift is also much shorter than other methods.
