Are you frustrated by the continual downward sag of your face as the years pass by? Perhaps you've been gently lifting your skin back with your fingertips when you look in the mirror, just to see how your face has changed since you were younger. A facelift is an effective, time-tested method for restoring a youthful facial appearance.
Facelift Procedure in Baltimore
If you are unhappy with the way your face has aged, this procedure may be right for you. A facelift – also called "rhytidectomy" – removes sagging skin and tightens the lax muscles and tissues beneath for comprehensive and long-lasting rejuvenation.
These characteristics can be fixed with a facelift:
- Sagging in the mid-face
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Double chin
- Folds and sagging on your neck
Not only does your skin begin to sag with age, the fat beneath your skin diminishes, and the fat that is left begins to fall and becomes displaced. Gone are the firm, high cheeks of youth. You may also notice lax skin gathering along your jaw line and under your chin. The muscles beneath the skin also become lax.
These changes are inevitable, but a facelift reverses them. During the procedure, Dr. Basner lifts and repairs sagging skin, fat and muscle. He removes excess skin so that your face will have the smooth, firm appearance of youth. His results provide effective rejuvenation while maintaining a natural, refreshed appearance.
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!
How Much Does a Facelift Cost?
The average cost of a facelift performed by Dr. Basner is $9,600.
This is only an average. It is normal for individual procedures to be higher or lower than the average; however, this figure gives you a good idea of what to plan for in terms of cost.
We know cost is a significant deciding factor. At your consultation, our office staff can show you the breakdown of all the fees and point out our payment options. We do accept financing plans through various companies, including CareCredit. You can ask our team how to apply, or see our financing information to apply online.
What to Expect from Facelift Surgery
Dr. Basner will discuss the incisions to be used in your facelift with you during your consultation. These incisions leave scars, but they are well-hidden in your hairline, behind your ears and/or beneath your chin.
Downtime will be needed for a couple weeks while you heal. We will provide you with a complete list of what to expect during your facelift recovery. You will have bandages and drainage tubes removed the day after your surgery. Bruising and swelling will subside over the next week or two.
