Facelift

Your face defines a significant portion of your identity, so it’s essential to choose your surgeon carefully if you’re considering a facelift. Baton Rouge plastic surgeons Dr. Jonathan Weiler and Dr. Robyn Daugherty understand that facelift patients want to look as young as they feel–naturally. Dr. Weiler has developed an innovative, modern facelift technique he calls the Timeless Face that doesn’t involve general anesthesia or a hospital setting. The main goal of this procedure is to leave patients looking like a younger, naturally rejuvenated version of themselves.

Are You a Candidate for the Timeless Face Procedure?

Healthy women and men in their 40s and up who are bothered by aging of the lower face and neck usually make good candidates for the Timeless Face procedure. This combination facelift/neck lift procedure is also appropriate for patients who have lost significant amount of weight.

Dr. Weiler has performed over 2,000 Timeless Face procedures.

Our plastic surgeons personalize each procedure to the patient’s unique needs and aesthetic goals. With this facelift technique, they can address a variety of concerns, including:

  • Deep wrinkles in the cheeks
  • Sagging skin near the cheekbones
  • Loss of definition along the jawline
  • Loose neck skin
  • Excess fatty tissue under the chin and on the neck

During the consultation with your plastic surgeon, you will have the opportunity to describe your concerns and the improvements you’d like to see. Our Surgeons have found that through unrushed, open conversation, they are best able to understand and meet each patient’s goals.

Complementary Procedures

For the most attractive and natural-looking results, our surgeons often address multiple concerns in one surgery. Depending on patient concerns, they combine the Timeless Face procedure with one or more of the following procedures:

  • Eyelid surgery to tighten lax upper lids and puffy undereye bags
  • Brow lift to raise heavy, sagging eyebrows
  • Fat grafting to restore lost volume to the cheeks and around the eyes
  • Laser skin resurfacing to smooth away fine lines around the eyes and mouth

About the Surgery

Facelift procedureDr. Weiler performs and Dr. Daugherty perform facelift surgery as an outpatient procedure at our on-site, state-of-the-art surgery center. They are two of the few doctors in the Baton Rouge and New Orleans area that perform facelift procedures using local anesthetic with oral sedation, similar to the method used by oral surgeons. In doing so, our surgeons avoid the nausea, grogginess, and safety risks associated with general anesthesia.

After the patient is relaxed and comfortable, the surgeon begins the surgery by making three small incisions: one in the natural crease beneath the chin and the other two in inconspicuous areas around the ears. He repositions lax tissue and muscle, and reduces pockets of fat, then re-drapes the overlying skin and trims away the excess. He finishes the procedure by closing the incisions with fine sutures and covering them with protective dressings.

After a brief observation period, patients are released into the care of an adult family member or friend who will drive them home.

Recovery

Most patients will need someone to stay with them for the first day or two after surgery to prepare meals and help with personal care. Pain is usually minor and subsides within a couple of days.  Your surgeon will prescribe pain medication, but many patients do fine with over-the-counter pain relievers. Patients are typically allowed to shower and wash their hair 48 hours after surgery.

Help the Healing Process

It is typical to have swelling and bruising initially that subsides gradually over a week or so. To keep this at a minimum:

  • Keep the head elevated at all times, even while sleeping
  • Wear the compression garment continuously for 5 days and then at night for 3 weeks
  • Avoid bending over

Unusual Sensations

For many patients, the following sensations are temporary and a normal part of the healing process:

  • Mild facial numbness may take a few months to dissipate.
  • Tightness in the neck muscles.

Please contact our office if you have any concerns about unusual sensations after your surgery.

Check In With Your Doctor

Dr. Weiler and Dr. Daugherty like to see facelift patients the following day to remove the dressings and assess the incisions. During this appointment, he or she will address any concerns you have, answer your questions, and review instructions for optimal recovery.

Most of the stitches will be removed within 5 to 7 days. The sutures behind your ears will be removed from 2 to 3 weeks after surgery.

Return to Your Routine

Patients typically are ready to return to work and normal activities within 5 to 7 days, and be “party presentable” in 2 to 3 weeks. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for several weeks and may be resumed only as directed by your doctor.

Timeless Face Results

Facial plastic surgery results are long-lasting; however, surgery won’t stop the aging process. With proper care, expect your refreshed look to last 5 to 10 years.
