Face Lift Lakeland

Lift Your Life with Facial Plastic Surgery

The most commonly performed facial plastic surgery procedure by Dr. Stark is a face lift. The natural progression of age often results in sagging and furrowed skin, especially on the jaw line and upper neck and chin. Thankfully, face lift surgery can offer a successful solution to these unwanted effects of age. This treatment reverses the aging process through the removal of excess fat, skin folds, wrinkles, and creases by tightening the skin and muscle.

Dr. Doran Stark has been performing face lift surgeries from his Lakeland office for many years and prides himself on minimizing or eliminating the “surgical” look that is often attributed to the procedure. A true specialist, Dr. Stark goes beyond tightening the skin and improves facial shape altogether, redistributing and reducing fat in the face to achieve the most natural look possible.

If you’re interested in a face lift, please contact our Lakeland office to schedule a consultation.

What to Expect

Using incisions placed discreetly along the hairline and in the ear, Dr. Stark separates the skin from the underlying tissue, allowing the lower two-thirds of the face to be reshaped and reformed. By smoothing and reconstructing the skin of the face, neck, and jaw, face lift surgery provides a more youthful, rejuvenated look. As with all of Dr. Stark’s procedures, he offers many different techniques and approaches to face lift in order to accomplish the appearance you have envisioned. Bandages will be applied at the conclusion of the procedure, and you will be seen the next day. Besides a few weeks of reduced activity, recovery from a face lift does not take long. Swelling and bruising should be expected immediately after surgery but will improve quickly. Exposure to sunlight and intense physical activity should be eliminated during the first part of the healing process. Complete recovery can require a month or more; the length of the recovery period depends on the overall health of the patient and his or her commitment to the post-surgery routine.

Candidacy

Those most suited for face lift surgery are typically in their fourties or older and are generally healthy. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may be a candidate for face lift:
  • Loose facial skin
  • Sagging jowls
  • Ill-defined cheeks

Benefits

By improving your appearance and reducing the signs of aging, a face lift can help you feel more confident and look as young as you feel. No matter which aspect of your life you’re looking to improve, a refined and youthful appearance will help take you further.

Risks

There are some risks associated with facial surgery. Complications that can occur include:
  • Excessive scarring
  • Infection
  • Asymmetry
  • Numbness
Face lift surgery is not for everyone, so gathering additional information about specific conditions or circumstances that may hinder your ability to undergo the surgery is an important step towards a new and youthful look.
