Facelift Questions

What is a facelift?

While in the past a facelift was considered a single procedure, surgeons specializing in facial rejuvenation now offer personally customized facelifts, which consist of a series of procedures performed concurrently in order to achieve a patient’s desired outcome.

What types of procedures may be performed with a facelift?

Depending on your personal cosmetic goals, Dr. Hamrah may recommend one or more of the following facial cosmetic enhancements:

How long does a facelift take?

Each facelift is unique and the amount of time involved depends on the patient’s cosmetic goals. Depending on the type of facelift that you desire the procedure can take any time from one to three hours.

Can all surgeries be performed at the same time?

If you desire additional facial rejuvenation options in addition to your facelift (4D-Facelift), such as a brow lift, neck lift or skin resurfacing procedures, Dr. Hamrah can generally perform all requested surgeries concurrently.

How do I choose the right surgeon for my facelift?

Choosing the right surgeon is essential in order to ensure that your cosmetic goals are met and minimal health complications arise.

Dr. Daria Hamrah is a qualified cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon who has undergone rigorous and extensive training. While other cosmetic surgeons dilute their experience by focusing on the entire body, Dr. Hamrah has dedicated the past seven years solely on the facial region.

Who is a good candidate for a facelift?

If you desire to remove visible aging signs in your face and neck region, are a non-smoker, and have realistic expectations, then you may be a good candidate for a facelift. The vast majority of face lift patients are in their 40s to 60s, which is an age where the skin is sagging but still retains elasticity, permitting a facelift to be easily performed.
