Facelift cosmetic surgery is an effective way to turn back the clock on years of aging. Wrinkling, jowls, and sagging skin is part of the natural aging process, and if you spend time in the sun, skin damage can prematurely add years to your appearance.
What is a facelift?
A facelift or Rhytidectomy can rejuvenate skin and restore a more youthful look by removing unwanted wrinkles and excess skin on the face and neck. Facelift is a surgical procedure available at our Jacksonville office that is intended to tighten up loose skin and wrinkles, making you look refreshed and years younger.
In the facelift cosmetic surgery procedure, surgeons at Coastal Cosmetic Center in Jacksonville, FL place an incision inconspicuously along the hairline, under the chin, or behind the ear. Facial and neck skin is then lifted and tightened, and the excess skin is removed. To complete the facelift, remaining skin is smoothed and sutured closed. The procedure may take up to three hours, depending on your skin’s condition and desired results. Most patients experience only minor pain and discomfort. Other side effects may include swelling, bruising, numbness, and a tight feeling.

How Much Does a Facelift Cost at Coastal Cosmetic Center?
The cost of a facelift procedure varies from patient to patient. During your consultation appointment with your surgeon at our Jacksonville office, the price of the procedure as it applies to you will be explained in detail.
Is there a better time of year to have the surgery performed?
You should schedule your surgery when you can allow yourself enough time to fully heal. Some swelling bruising, numbness, and a tight feeling are typical after the procedure. Some activities that interfere with healing must be avoided during the early recovery period. Most patients return to work within two weeks.
