What is a facelift?

A facelift (rhytidectomy) is surgery that rejuvenates the face by lifting and/or tightening the skin and tissues. Outcomes include:

  • A smoother, sharper jawline
  • Increased cheek volume
  • Reduced jowls
  • A smooth neck
  • Wrinkle reduction or elimination
  • A more youthful overall appearance 
  • Increased self-confidence

Facelifts are suitable for people who are in good mental and physical health, don’t smoke, and understand what is realistically achievable. 

What type of facelift should I have?

Dr. Jaiswal performs several types of facelifts. He discusses the differences during your consultation and recommends the type best suited to your needs. Options include:

Traditional facelift

Dr. Jaiswal releases the deeper tissue layer covering the facial muscles at various points and lifts it. This is the most comprehensive facelift.


With this procedure, Dr. Jaiswal adds volume to the mid-face, often using the patient’s fat.

Mini facelift

A mini facelift is less invasive. It improves the lower third of your face, including the jawline.

Lip and brow lifts

A lip lift reduces upper lip thinness by shortening your philtrum — the space between your nose and top lip. For a brow lift, Dr. Jaiswal makes an incision just above one ear, following your hairline over your forehead and down to the other ear. He carefully lifts the forehead skin and adjusts the fat and facial muscles to smooth the forehead.

Buccal fat removal

The buccal fat pads in your cheeks might benefit from removal if you have excessive midface fullness. 

Nonsurgical (liquid) facelift

Patients with mild signs of aging might prefer to avoid surgery by using Botox® and filler injections. 

Dr. Jaiswal can also perform earlobe repair surgery if you have a torn lobe or a widened piercing. 

I’d love to have a facelift — how do I proceed?

The first stage is arranging a consultation with Dr. Jaiswal. He assesses your facial tissues, discusses your goals, and ensures you’re suitable for surgery before designing a treatment plan. 

Facelift surgery may occur under local or general anesthesia, depending on which is most suitable for you. The operation could take 1.5-3.5 hours or more, depending on the amount of work. Afterward, you go home with your head and face wrapped.

The typical recovery time following a facelift is 1-4 weeks. Most people feel comfortable appearing in public after four weeks, but some need longer. You should see the final results after about six months.
