Rejuvenate and Revitalize Your Facial Appearance in Linwood and Haddonfield, New Jersey

Signs of aging tend to be most noticeable in the face. After all, when people look at you, they take in your eyes, your smile, and the way your various features combine to create a recognizable whole. That’s why it can be so distressing to watch your appearance change over time as tissues sag, creases form, and more. Happily, with a facelift at New Jersey’s Sood Center, our team, led by Dr. Mohit Sood, can help you to “turn back the clock” and enjoy a more youthful look.

What Is a Facelift?

A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure aimed at providing a youthful, refreshed appearance by focusing on elevating tissues on the mid and lower face. Facelifts work by tightening sagging skin, reducing wrinkles, and better defining facial contours, addressing many visible signs of aging on the face. Carrying a vast amount of experience in advanced facelift techniques, Dr. Sood can guide you on a transformative journey that embraces a refreshed you.

What Can a Facelift Address?

Here’s an overview of the different cosmetic issues that can be addressed with this procedure:

Facial Creases​

By tightening the underlying muscles and repositioning or removing excess fat and skin, a facelift can significantly reduce creases and similar signs of aging.

Sagging Skin and Jowls

Loose, sagging skin on the face and neck, including the development of jowls, is one of the most noticeable signs of aging. A facelift helps to address this issue by lifting and tightening the skin and underlying structure of the face.

Facial Volume Loss

Over time, our face naturally loses youthful fat, leading to a hollow or sunken appearance. A facelift can address this by restoring lost volume through fat transfer. Some patients opt for injectable dermal fillers used in facial contouring.

Neck Bands and Double Chin

Aging can lead to the appearance of vertical bands in the neck or a double chin due to excess fat and skin. A facelift is typically paired with a neck lift that can help to smooth out these bands and reduce the appearance of submental fullness, resulting in a more youthful and sleeker neck profile and better-defined jawline.
Patients who want to address sagging only on the lower face—in the jaw and neck area—should consider a mini facelift.

What Are the Benefits of a Facelift?

Having a facelift provides a range of benefits that extend beyond purely physical improvements:

Enhanced Appearance

One of the primary benefits of a facelift is a significantly younger and refreshed facial appearance. The procedure tightens loose skin, reduces creases, restores volume, and enhances overall facial contours.

Boost in Confidence

When you look good, you feel good. By improving your appearance and reversing multiple signs of aging, a facelift can provide a substantial increase in your self-confidence and overall quality of life.

Long-Lasting Results

Unlike some non-surgical treatments that might require frequent touch-ups, facelifts provide results that last for years. Depending on individual patient factors and the specific techniques used, the rejuvenating effects of a facelift can last for many years.

Natural-Looking Outcomes

With modern advancements in facelift techniques and a skilled surgeon, a facelift can produce results that are both dramatic and natural-looking, avoiding the “overly pulled” look that was sometimes associated with earlier facelift techniques.

Preparing for a Facelift

Preparing for a facelift involves several vital steps that can significantly contribute to the success of the procedure and your recovery. A well-informed patient who actively participates in their preparation process often has a smoother journey and is generally more satisfied with their results. Below, we explore what you need to do before your facelift procedure.

Medical Evaluation and Lab Testing

To ensure optimal results and minimize risks, Dr. Sood may request certain medical evaluations or lab tests prior to your procedure. These evaluations provide an in-depth understanding of your physical health and readiness for surgery, taking into account your medical history, current medications, and existing health conditions.

Medication Adjustment

In many cases, you may need to alter your current medications before the procedure. Our team will guide you on which drugs to stop, start, or adjust. This step plays a crucial role in preventing any potential drug interactions during and after your surgery.

Preoperative Skin Care

You might be recommended to use specific skin-care products in the weeks leading up to your facelift. These preparations serve to prime your skin, making it more responsive to the treatment and potentially enhancing your post-op healing and results.

Quit Smoking

Smoking can significantly impede healing following a facelift, as it constricts blood vessels and affects blood supply to the skin and tissues. If you’re a smoker, it’s highly advisable to stop smoking several weeks before your surgery to ensure the best outcome.

Avoid Certain Drugs and Supplements

Aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications, and certain herbal supplements can increase bleeding and bruising during and after surgery. Refrain from consuming these before your facelift. We will provide you with comprehensive guidance on this.

Finally, it’s essential to prepare for your aftercare once the procedure is complete. Due to the effects of anesthesia, you should arrange for someone to drive you home post-surgery and stay with you for at least the first night. This assistance will ensure you can focus on rest and recovery—a critical element in achieving the best possible results.

By thoroughly preparing for your facelift, you can pave the way toward a smoother procedure, better recovery, and—ultimately—a more satisfying transformation.

How Much Does a Facelift Cost?

Facelift pricing varies based on the procedure’s extent and your specific goals. All these details will be thoroughly discussed during your consultation, providing you with a comprehensive understanding of the investment.

What Is the Sood Center Facelift Experience?

First, the pre-procedure consultation is key. Dr. Sood will evaluate your facial structure, skin elasticity, and aesthetic goals. Based on this, he will devise a personalized treatment plan.

The procedure is performed with the patient under either local or general anesthesia. Incisions are made generally along the hairline or below the chin, allowing Dr. Sood to remove or reshape excess fat, tighten muscles, and trim away excess skin.

Post-procedure, expect mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising for days to weeks. We are dedicated to ensuring your recovery is as smooth as possible, providing detailed aftercare guidance and support.

What Happens After a Facelift?

After the procedure, compression garments or bandages may be used to reduce swelling and provide support during the healing process. The natural aging process will continue, but a facelift can take years off your appearance and most patients find the outcomes long-lasting.

Is a Facelift Suitable for Everyone?

A facelift is a powerful tool in the fight against visible aging, but its suitability greatly depends on an individual’s health, lifestyle, and expectations. Our team will assess your eligibility during your consultation and explore alternative procedures if necessary.
