What Is a Facelift?

A facelift, clinically known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure to rejuvenate the face and neck by addressing signs of aging, such as wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of facial volume. Dr. Higdon performs the Delta Facelift, an advanced technique developed by his mentor, Dr. James Grotting, while Dr. Higdon was his Aesthetic Society Fellow many years ago. Dr. Higdon has since performed the Delta Facelift for many years and taught the technique to many plastic surgeons that trained under him since then. During the procedure, excess facial skin is removed, underlying tissues are tightened, and often fat grafting or fillers are utilized to restore volume. The goal is to create a smoother, firmer facial contour and a more youthful appearance overall. Dr. Higdon’s facelifts are customized to target specific areas of concern, providing patients with natural-looking results that last for years.

Is a Facelift Right for Me?

Determining whether a facelift is right for you involves considering several factors. Ideal candidates for this procedure are healthy individuals who experience signs of aging, such as sagging face and neck skin, deep creases, and loss of facial volume. If your concerns about your appearance affect your self-confidence and quality of life, a facelift in Nashville & Franklin, TN with Dr. Kye Higdon could benefit you. However, the way to decide on your best plan for your needs would be to schedule a consultation with Higdon Plastic Surgery. During this appointment, Dr. Higdon will thoroughly evaluate your facial anatomy, discuss your aesthetic goals and concerns, and explain the facelift procedure in detail. This personalized approach ensures you receive tailored recommendations and comprehensive care to make an informed decision and achieve the desired rejuvenated and natural-looking results.

What to Expect The Facelift Procedure

Several steps are involved to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation during a facelift procedure with Dr. Kye Higdon. First, anesthesia is administered to ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. Dr. Higdon then makes discreet incisions around the hairline and ears to access the underlying facial tissues. He carefully repositions and tightens the muscles and deeper tissues to address sagging and restore youthful contours. The neck area is tightened, and excess skin is also removed to create a smoother, more lifted appearance.

The procedure may take several hours, depending on the techniques and the extent of correction required. The power behind a facelift lies in its ability to address both the skin and underlying facial structures, providing long-lasting results by restoring a more youthful facial contour and appearance. Dr. Higdon's expertise and precision ensure ideal outcomes tailored to your needs and aesthetic goals.

Facelift Recovery

Following a facelift by Dr. Kye Higdon, you can expect some downtime for recovery as the body heals and adjusts to the surgical changes. Initially, there may be swelling, bruising, and discomfort around the face and neck, which can be managed with prescribed medications and cold compresses. Dr. Higdon uses advanced prescribing methods that he helped develop, with a multi-modal analgesia approach that minimizes the need for narcotic prescriptions for his patients after surgery.  Resting and avoiding strenuous activities during the initial stages of recovery is essential to promote proper healing. We provide specific postoperative instructions tailored to your needs, including how to care for the incision sites and when to schedule follow-up appointments. As the swelling gradually subsides over the coming weeks, you will notice improvements in your facial contours and overall appearance. Full results will continue to develop over the following months, allowing you to enjoy a rejuvenated and more youthful look. Dr. Higdon and our team will be available to support you throughout your recovery journey and address any concerns or questions you may have along the way.
