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.

Benefits to You
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:
- Lifting and tightening loose skin on the cheeks, jowls, and neck
- Softening smile lines and marionette lines around the nose and mouth
- Elevating sagging cheeks
- Removing excess fat deposits from the cheeks, jaw line, neck, and under the chin
Dr. Ashley K. Lentz strive 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. Ashley K. Lentz will ask you to describe your concerns and then develop a personalized plan to help you achieve your improvement goals.

Every surgery carries the risk of a complication, including elective cosmetic surgery. Complications are rare, but they do occur. CosmetAssure provides you with insurance coverage in the unlikely event a complication occurs with a board certified plastic surgeon. CosmetAssure is a solution to the lack of coverage for medical complications that can occur during or after your surgery.
What to Expect
Dr. Ashley K. Lentz performs face lift surgery as either an outpatient or inpatient in the hospital. In most cases, they uses general anesthesia so the patient sleeps through the entire procedure. During face lift surgery, they 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.
Your Improved Look
