Finn Facelift FAQ

We get a lot of inquiries about surgical options for patients of all ages, genders, races, shapes, and sizes. Here are four frequently asked questions answered by Dr. Finn about his famous facelifts. (Say that ten times fast!)

What is the best age for a facelift?
Facelift results will look most natural and last the longest when done on healthy, younger tissue. So, 50-55 is the “prime time” for facelift.  However, the real answer is when it fits into your life, your budget, and your needs. Facelift should be considered when things like fillers and Botox are no longer achieving the same results they used to.

How do I avoid the Hollywood “pulled” look?
The key to a natural result is to have effective, deep-layer surgery. Mini-lift facelifts, where lifting is predominantly done on the skin, often do not last very long and can result in a distorted or pulled appearance over a short period of time. Facelift techniques and methodologies have improved greatly over the past ten years, and our results are getting more durable and more natural-looking each year.

Will the scar change my hairline?
One of the keys to a natural looking facelift is avoiding distortion to the hairline. This can be done with careful incisions below the temporal tuft of hair, within the folds of the ear, and in the crease behind the ear. We pride ourselves on our extremely well-hidden scars and often get complements from hairstylists who see the best and the worst of all facelift scars!

How long is the facelift recovery?
Everyone’s recovery is different. Typically, facelift recovery is not very painful or uncomfortable, but there is quite a bit of bruising and swelling for the first week. On average, patients are “grocery store-ready” in approximately ten days. Patients are typically more comfortable going out with friends at three or four weeks. However, some very normal recoveries can last longer than that. The more time is budgeted for a healthy recovery, the more comfortable the healing process can be.
