The years pass by quickly, and you might find yourself wondering why your face doesn’t look as youthful as you feel inside. While natural beauty is abundant in Central Florida, the sea breeze, salt air, and ever-present rays of sunshine can age your appearance. It’s unfortunate that we are unable to hide from gravity and the stresses of daily life, which also can cause your cheeks, jowls, and neck to sag. There’s no reason to let your face give away your age and every reason to consider a face lift.

A face lift, while it can’t stop the aging process, can improve the visible signs of aging. This procedure, which is most popular with women and men in their 40s to 70s, centers on the lower face from the lower eyelids to the neck. While each patient is unique, common reasons for choosing a face lift include:
Dr. Lentz strives to attain the improvements that are a priority to you. A facelift can be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as a brow lift, eyelid surgery, and fat injections, which can be used to contour the face and add fullness to areas such as the lips. At your consultation, Dr. Lentz will ask you to describe your concerns and then develop a personalized plan to help you achieve your improvement goals.
Dr. Lentz performs face lift surgery as an outpatient procedure at an AAAASF-certified operating room. In most cases, he uses general anesthesia so the patient sleeps through the entire procedure. During face lift surgery, he removes excess fat from the cheeks, jaw line, chin, and neck, tightens underlying facial muscles, and then re-drapes the facial and neck skin.
After surgery, you can minimize swelling and bruising by keeping your head elevated while sleeping and resting for the first few days. Most patients can resume their regular everyday activities, including work, after about 14 days, although there will likely still be some swelling and bruising. Any strenuous or high impact activities should be avoided for 6 to 8 weeks.
When choosing surgery with realistic expectations, Dr. Lentz’s patients are usually thrilled with the improvements from their facelift. He strives to achieve subtle, but beautiful, improvements. You’ll look younger and refreshed, but it will be difficult to guess why. Many patients gain the added bonus of increased self-esteem, which can enrich many aspects of their lives.
