Facelift in Dallas, TX
What is a Face Lift?
A face lift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure used to combat the signs of aging. In essence, the muscles and soft tissue of your face are repositioned and the skin is then re-draped such that the tell-tale signs of the procedures are limited.
Face lifts have becoming increasingly popular among Dallas, Southlake and Plano residents. At Genecov Plastic Surgery Group, our surgeons offer the best face lift care in TX. Call us today to schedule an appointment and learn more about average Dallas face lift prices and procedures, and view our face lift before and after photos.

How are Face Lifts Performed?
Prior to your face lift procedure, you will be asked to take two weeks of vitamins to improve your immune system and hasten your post-op healing. Face lifts are performed under both sedation and general anesthesia. Patients will require an overnight stay in our local recovery suite with medical supervision.
There are several types of face lifts that are commonly performed:
Weekend Lift (Mini Facelift)
Weekend lifts are a type of mini-face lift known for a quick return to work. The lift is performed on the neck and lower face, rather than the entire face. The procedure combines liposuction of the neck, small incisions and muscle restructuring to achieve the desired result. This is not a good solution for everyone, but may be perfect if you are between the ages of 35 and 50 and still have a fair amount of facial fullness.
Thread lifts and contour lifts use a special kind of barbed suture on the underside of the skin which are attached to the top of the head to lift the skin. This can be used in a small segment of the population; however, when indicated, it can achieve good results.
Our preferred rhytidectomy technique involves vertical positioning of the superficial musculoaponeurotic system, or SMAS. This is a modification of the traditional full face lift. In addition, it is a 3-dimensional face lift that repositions the skin and muscle, as well as adds volume. At our center in Dallas, this face lift provides the best and most long-lasting results.
During all facial procedures, we take special precautions to ensure that you achieve the youthful look that we desire. We take great care to ensure that no tell-tale signs of a face lift are left. Our center is known for creating a natural look, so your face will not appear pulled or wind-blown, there are no creases, and the incisions lie in natural spaces. The goal of each face lift that we perform is to move the underlying facial structures to their natural position, allowing the skin to drape naturally over the repositioned tissue.
At our practice, we perform many face lift techniques, but all are proven and not “the newest thing.” We do not take shortcuts during lifts; these are complex procedures and we are constantly reviewing our processes to ensure that you get the best possible care.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Face Lift?
Face lifts are performed when injectable fillers no longer have the desired effect on signs of aging. Generally, this is over the age of 40, though you may elect to have these procedures earlier. If you’re unhappy with any of the following, you may be a good candidate for face lift:
- Sagging in the mid-face
- Crow’s feet, or deep creases below the lower eyelids
- Deep creases running from the nose to the corner of the mouth
- Jowls, or loss of muscle tone in the lower part of the face
- Loose skin or excess fatty deposits below the jaw
What Kind of Post-Operative Face Lift Care Can I Expect?
Most patients find that two to three weeks off work is best for face lift procedures, depending on the type of face lift performed. After about two weeks, noticeable bruising or swelling will subside. Final results will be apparent in one to two months.
Face lifts generally last 10 to 15 years. Avoiding skin damage from the sun, alcohol and smoking can prolong the effects of your face lift.
Patients should avoid strenuous physical activity for one to two months following their procedure. By taking the correct precautions after your procedure, you can ensure the longest-lasting results.
What are the Typical Results of a Face Lift?
Face lifts can easily take years off your face, eliminating sagging skin and wrinkles. Our face lift patients in the Dallas, Southlake and Plano area have reported an increase in self-confidence following the procedure, making them feel as young on the outside as they do on the inside. Our face lift before and after photos demonstrate the results you can likely expect. Before making any decisions, browse these photos to make sure a face lift is the right procedure for you.
