As we age, gravity, stress, and environmental factors often cause visible signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and jowls. But thanks to modern technology and skilled professionals, you can turn back the clock with a facelift at 5th Avenue Plastic Surgery. We specialize in providing facelifts that will help you regain your youthful self. 

Dr. Tzikas, Dr. Mascaro and our team’s experience and unparalleled success rate across the Delray Beach area have made 5th Avenue Plastic Surgery the go-to choice for men and women who want to turn back time.

What is a Facelift?

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, involves making an incision in the hairline, extending down and around the front of the ears. Excess skin is then trimmed away, underlying fat and muscles are reshaped and sculpted, and the remaining skin is tightened and lifted. 

The appeal of facelift surgeries extends across different age demographics, with the most common age group being between 40 and 60 years. However, the beauty of this procedure is that it isn’t age-specific; your eligibility is determined primarily by your health and the elasticity of your skin.

Who is a Good Candidate for A Facelift?

There are some criteria we look for when determining if a patient is a good candidate for a facelift. Ideal candidates meet the following specifications:

  • In generally good health with no medical conditions that could negatively affect the healing process
  • Realistic expectations
  • Nonsmokers
  • Struggling with wrinkles, deep creases, sagging skin, and/or jowls

Recovery and Results

The recovery time after a facelift is often two to three weeks. At that point, you can return to work and participate in most of your normal activities.  

At the start of the recovery process, you’ll have some discomfort, swelling, and bruising, but those side effects should all subside on their own within a few weeks. As you heal, you’ll want to regularly change your bandages, take any prescribed medication, and follow your provider’s post-op guidelines. 

After undergoing a facelift, patients at 5th Avenue Plastic Surgery can significantly enhance their healing process by incorporating Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) into their post-operative care. This non-invasive treatment involves breathing 100% oxygen in a pressurized chamber, which accelerates the body’s natural healing processes. HBOT increases oxygen delivery to damaged tissues, reducing swelling, bruising, and inflammation while promoting faster recovery. By integrating HBOT into their post-facelift regimen, patients can achieve optimal healing, minimize downtime, and enjoy the full benefits of their rejuvenated appearance more quickly.

In addition to traditional recovery methods, 5th Avenue Plastic Surgery offers Red Light Therapy to enhance post-operative healing. This non-invasive treatment uses specific wavelengths of red light to penetrate deep into the skin, promoting cellular repair and regeneration. Red Light Therapy can reduce inflammation, increase collagen production, and accelerate wound healing, making it an excellent complement to facelift surgery.

As for results, you may see some improvements immediately, but due to the swelling and bruising, most of the changes will be hidden. In the weeks and months after your facelift, you’ll see more noticeable improvements.
