What is it?

A facelift can tighten the neckline, lift and tighten the midface, firming up sagging skin on the face, remove or reduce jowls, and boost overall self-esteem.

Is a Facelift right for me?

Do you answer “yes” to one or more of the following:

  • Loose neckline
  • Sagging skin on the face
  • Have deep creases below the lower eyelids and/or along the nose extending to the corners of the mouth
  • Have a loss of skin tone in the lower face, creating jowls

If so, you may be an ideal candidate for a facelift.

What will Dr. Kaye and I discuss during my consultation?

During your initial consultation in Hopkinsville and Christian County with Dr. Mitchell Kaye, we will focus on your medical history and your goals. This appointment will include a discussion of your medical history, your desires, and your expectations for the procedure.

Through a facelift, our plastic surgeon can help your face look its best, giving you a more youthful appearance and a natural look of health. As part of your consultation, we will take into account a number of factors like your ethnic background, skin type, basic bone structure, degree of skin elasticity, and individual healing.

How long is the procedure?

The typical surgical time for facelift surgery is 3 to 4 hours. The procedure is performed under deep sedation and tumescent anesthesia for safety and rapid recovery.

Incisions are minimized and are carefully hidden around the ears and in the hairline. Dr. Mitchell Kaye is exceptionally skilled and experienced in facelift surgery and has developed a special personal technique that strongly lifts the deep tissues of the face yet preserves a natural, “non-operated” appearance.

How long will recovery take?

You should plan to be home for about one week after the procedure for recovery. During this time, it is best to have no work or social obligations to allow you to rest. Sutures are removed after one week, and most men resume their normal daily activities and work after 7-10 days.

Aerobic exercise can be resumed on day 14 and weightlifting on day 21 after the surgery. Other facial procedures, such as chin implants to strengthen the jawline, blepharoplasty for baggy eyelids, and fat transfers to the face to restore volume, are often completed at the same time.

How much does a facelift cost?

Rhytidectomy surgery in Hopkinsville varies in technique, and the price of the procedure reflects this. Facelift cost depends on the chosen technique, the amount of tissue removed, the overall time the procedure takes to perform, and the anesthesia that is chosen. CareCredit and United Medical Resources are available for financing.
