The Beautify at AMS Approach to a Facelift

While a facelift traditionally lifts and tightens the skin and facial soft tissues to reverse the aging process, this is not a singular procedure with a fixed protocol. At Beautify at AMS, we expertly combine the best surgical techniques with the most effective non-surgical devices and therapies to achieve the best possible results—with every facelift customized to each patient’s current condition and personal aesthetic goals.

What a Facelift Can Do

  • Reduce facial sagging
  • Tighten the facial muscles
  • Improve the appearance of lines, folds, and wrinkles
  • Tighten and firm up a loose jawline
  • Deliver a more attractive and youthful facial appearance

Candidates for a Facelift 

If you’re in the Chicago area and you’re considering a facelift, you may be a great candidate. Those who are the best patients for a facelift are individuals who:

  • Are unhappy with the signs of aging on their face, jawline, and neck
  • Are non-smokers in overall good health 
  • Fully understand the procedure(s) that will be used 
  • Are willing and able to take up to two weeks off for a proper recovery
  • Have realistic expectations for what a facelift can accomplish  

Why the Facelift is So Popular

As one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world, a facelift can take ten years off of the facial appearance. With age, the face goes through three main visible changes: deflation (displacement of the soft tissues of the face); descent (lost facial fat), and radial expansion (loosened tissue).

At Beautify at AMS, our surgeons know exactly how to address these three issues while maintaining the features that make you look like yourself. The goal of our facelift procedure is to correct the signs of age and accomplish your goals without changing your organic appearance too much. We want you to have that more youthful appearance, but not to look “overdone”.

Your Consultation with Us

Dr. Neema Bayran and his skilled plastic surgeons begin with a comprehensive consultation in which all parts of your face—the forehead, cheeks, eyes, nose, earlobes, chin, jawline and neck—are evaluated in order to identify skin laxity or looseness, fatty pockets, crepey skin, and under-eye bags. We then seek out opportunities for limited incisions to reduce downtime and scarring and to determine the best course of action to acquire a balanced, natural, aesthetic appearance.

Facelifts for Men

The facelift procedure is becoming more and more in demand by men who want to look as young as they feel. The facelift can truly enhance your natural good looks and give you a refreshed, rejuvenated look. 

Although the objective of a facelift is the same for both males and females (to look better), there are some nuances in how the facelift is approached between genders. Males have thicker connective tissue, muscles, skin than females do. 

They also have more blood vessels and a stronger bone structure. Because these factors determine how the skin is removed and pulled during a facelift, it’s very important to only work with a facial surgeon with a deep knowledge of these differences. 

Facelift for Minor Facial Aging

For patients with only minor facial aging, we frequently combine subtle excess skin removal with non-surgical rejuvenation treatments to produce significant improvements and a healthier, more youthful aesthetic appearance. These non-surgical procedures include: 

  • Energy-based facial resurfacing with Renuvion™/J-Plasma®
  • NovaThreads and Silhouette InstaLift™ for thread lifting/collagen stimulation
  • Deep microneedling treatments with radiofrequency skin tightening 
  • A long-term skincare maintenance regimen

Facelift for Severe Facial Aging

In severe instances of facial aging, our experienced plastic surgeons may recommend skin removal and re-contouring of the deeper tissues of the face and neck to achieve extensive facial rejuvenation.

Above all else, maintaining facial harmony is key when performing a surgical facelift. Therefore, we often accompany this procedure with a brow lift, eyelid surgery, and other facial cosmetic surgeries. If needed, facial implants can be used to obtain a subtle yet dramatic transformation.

Recovery and Results

Because every facelift we perform is customized to the patient’s specific case, each recovery period will be different. Those with more minor signs of aging will have a less aggressive procedure than those with more severe issues. However, in general, facelift patients need approximately two weeks off of work and regular life. 

During recovery, use only very gentle face products, and keep your head elevated as much as possible. We recommend avoiding vigorous exercise and strenuous activities for 6-8 weeks. 

During your consultation with us, we will let you know when you can expect to see results. Again, every case will be different, so we will need to assess your needs and determine a treatment plan before we can give you details about your results.
