Facelift (Rhytidectomy)

Plastic Surgeon serving Baltimore, Columbia, Owings Mills and Towson, MD

If you are getting older, you have gained experience, maturity and wisdom, which are great traits, but not when they show up in the appearance of your face. Laugh lines, brow furrows, jowls, neck wrinkles and other deep facial folds can be devastating because you may feel like you look much older than you feel. With a facelift performed by Adam Basner, MD, you can once again have a fresh, revivified facial appearance. To schedule a free cosmetic consultation* with Dr. Basner at our greater Baltimore office, please call us at (410) 616-3000.

  • Nasolabial folds (folds extending from your nose to your mouth)
  • Jowls
  • Double chin
  • Folds and sagging skin on your neck

Men and women of various ages can benefit from certain facelift techniques. Whether you are 30 or 65 – or virtually any other age – Dr. Basner can help you decide if one of our facelifts or another facial surgery can create the refreshed facial appearance you want.

Testimonial: After consulting plastic surgeons in 3 states I chose Dr. Basner in Baltimore Maryland for my facial surgery. Dr. Basner went out of his way to work with me and his staff was just as helpful post-surgery! I really do believe your happiness is important to him. Most importantly, I am thrilled with my results! I am getting compliments from friends and family although they cannot put their finger on what is different about me!!! It was definitely worth the trip out of state to Baltimore, MD!

The Facelift Procedure at our Practice

During a facelift, Dr. Adam Basner surgically removes excess skin and fat, tightens facial muscles, and then re-drapes the skin to lay more smoothly over your face and neck. Your incisions – and the resulting scars – are hidden within your hairline, behind the ear and/or under your chin.

Like other surgeries, the facelift does require some downtime. We will provide you with a complete list of what to expect during your facelift recovery, but generally you can expect to keep your head elevated for a day or two. You will have bandages on your face and a tube to drain excess fluid. Most of these bandages, as well as drainage tubes will be removed the day after your surgery. At this point, you can expect to see bruising and swelling on your face, although these things will subside over the next week or two.

Cost of Facelift Surgery at our Baltimore Practice

The average cost of facelifts at Dr. Basner's practice is $9,500. Your final estimate may be higher or lower, but this average gives you a good idea of the general cost of this rejuvenating facial procedure. We can show you how to apply for a CareCredit financing plan if you wish, and we'll make sure you understand all of your payment options.
