Phoenix and Scottsdale, AZ men and women who have noticed their facial skin beginning to sag or develop wrinkles can erase those issues and look younger with a facelift. A facelift is medically called a rhytidectomy. It is a procedure designed to reduce the appearance of sagging in the face and neck. The procedure is ideal for individuals who have developed facial creases and folds or have even lost some muscle tone. Other cosmetic procedures that complement facelift surgery can include a blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) and a browplasty (forehead lift). Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. G. Robert Meger, can address each patient's individual needs during a private consultation. He invites anyone who may be interested to call G. Robert Meger, M.D. P.C. today.
The best candidates for facelift surgery:
- Have aged skin with lines, wrinkles, or sagging skin
- Have had unsuccessful results with injectables or fillers
- Have realistic expectations
- Desire a long-term, natural-looking solution

What to Expect
Facelift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure at an accredited surgical facility where the patient is under general anesthesia. With carefully placed incisions behind the ear and around the hairline, extraneous tissue, skin, and fat are removed from the face. The underlying tissue and muscles are tightened to create long-term results. The skin is repositioned and re-draped tighter for a smooth, natural appearance. Facelift surgery typically takes around 4 hours to complete.
After a facelift, a dressing will be placed over the surgical site and it will be replaced during the initial follow-up visit. It’s normal to experience pain and discomfort, which can be alleviated with medication prescribed by our surgeon. There should also be an expectation of swelling and bruising up to 2 weeks after surgery. After about 2 weeks, most patients can resume normal activities like going back to work and working out. After about 3 weeks, patients are able to notice the dramatic and natural results of the surgery. While facelifts offer long-term solutions, just like any other surgery, the effects are not permanent since the face will continue to naturally age. However, a patient will still look younger compared to if he or she had never had the surgery. Avoiding skin damaging substances like direct sunlight and nicotine can help prolong the results.
