No one wants to look older than they feel, but sometimes your face ages faster than you would like. The Florida sun, repeated facial expressions and genetics all contribute to the skin laxity and wrinkles that can start to alter the appearance of your face in your 40’s or 50’s. If you’re not ready to say goodbye to your youthful face, Dr. Nathan Nachlas offers the minimal-downtime facelift at his Boca Raton practice; it’s a procedure which can rejuvenate your face with natural-looking results.
Nathan E. Nachlas, M.D. is a double-board-certified facial plastic surgeon who trained at the renowned Yale-New Haven Hospital and The Johns Hopkins Hospital, and earned a prestigious facial plastic surgery fellowship in Beverly Hills, California. During his extensive training, he learned advanced techniques in facial plastic surgery, which he draws upon for every procedure he performs. His surgical skill is matched by the high level of personal attention and care he devotes to each of his facial plastic surgery patients. Many of his patients travel to his Boca Raton practice from West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and even Miami.
Minimal-Downtime Facelift Surgery: What Can I Expect?
Minimal-downtime facelift surgery addresses many of the same concerns that traditional facelift surgery does, but with smaller and fewer incisions. This approach to facelift surgery is best suited for people with more moderate skin sagging and laxity who would like a more limited procedure that still yields beautiful results.
The short incisions used for the minimal-downtime facelift are made in front of and occasionally behind your ears, and should not disrupt the hairline. The underlying facial tissue is repositioned and the muscles are tightened, creating a more youthful foundation for your skin. Excess sagging or lax skin is removed, and the skin is repositioned and held in place with tiny sutures. The result is firmer, lifted cheeks, smoother skin, and a more sculpted, youthful-looking jawline.
Dr. Nachlas performs minimal-downtime facelift surgery as an outpatient procedure, using general anesthesia for optimal patient comfort. The surgery typically takes 1 to 1.5 hours, unless it is being done in conjunction with other procedures such as eyelid surgery or nose surgery. Many patients find that their minimal-downtime facelift results can be enhanced with the use of injectable fillers or BOTOX™ Cosmetic at our Boca Raton practice.
Minimal-Downtime Facelift Surgery: Recovery and Results
Dr. Nachlas will bandage your face overnight; minimal swelling is typical. He will make sure that you have prescription pain medication in case you need it to manage your discomfort. He will monitor your recovery closely over several weeks, advising you as to when you can resume normal activities. Most patients return to work when they have reached a more normal appearance and comfort level, typically within a week.
