What is a Facelift?

Our Seattle facelift patients can easily correct lower face and neck aging with a deep-plane facelift. Dr. Hakim Said’s modern technique lifts beneath the muscle layer in your cheeks, leaving the skin above it intact. This process tightens facial contours and smooths wrinkles without obvious signs of having “work” done.

The Facelift Process

The Facelift Consultation

At your consultation for a facelift Seattle plastic surgeon Dr. Hakim Said asks you about the changes you would like to see in the mirror. He listens to your aesthetic concerns and examines your face for signs of aging. The consultation provides answers to all your questions so you know exactly what to expect moving forward.

After a thorough skin analysis, Dr. Said creates a personalized facelift plan. He explains what a facelift can do for you. He may also suggest anti-aging treatments such as dermal fillers or neck rejuvenation that you might consider. The full cost of services is provided. Once you have a customized facelift plan, the next step is booking your surgery date.

The Facelift Procedure

Please follow all pre-operative instructions. On the day of your facelift, Dr. Said meets with you to go over any last-minute questions. He may place markings on your skin with a special marker. General anesthesia or conscious sedation may be used. Sedative drugs will begin to make you feel drowsy.

Once you are comfortably sedated, Dr. Said makes small incisions. Incision placement varies based on how much excess skin you have and your hairstyle and/or facial grooming preferences. Through these incisions, the underlying tissue of your cheeks is lifted and tightened.

Facelift surgery takes between three to four hours. The incisions are neatly closed. They are hardly visible once healed. You will awake in a comfortable recovery room. Most patients return home the same day.

What to Expect During Facelift Recovery

After spending approximately one hour in the recovery room, you may return home to rest. Someone must be present to drive you home if general anesthesia is administered.

Recovery after a facelift is relatively easy. Dr. Said provides post-op instructions for proper healing. You may shower the day after surgery and wash your hair. It is best to sleep with your head elevated. Sleeping in a recliner or propping your head up with extra pillows is recommended for the first week. Most discomfort subsides in the first three days. Antibiotics and pain medication may be prescribed. Swelling is minimal. Bruising may occur and generally subsides in two weeks. Bandages are removed at your first post-op appointment.

Stitches, if any, are removed in approximately 7 days. You can return to work in one to two weeks. Exercise may be resumed in six weeks; Please avoid strenuous activities before then. Walking every few hours is a great way to get some exercise in early recovery. Walking also lowers the risk of blood clots. There is no need to walk long distances or power walk. A few steps go a long way!
