Facelift Surgery

A facelift, which is known medically as rhytidectomy, is a type of cosmetic surgery that will lift up and pull back the skin so that your face appears smoother and tighter.

This procedure is designed to reduce sagging or loose skin around your neck and the lower half of your face, especially the jowls.


There are several things you can do to prepare for a facelift. 

Dr. Lanfranchi will always start every treatment with a consultation, so this can be discussed with you in detail. 

Nevertheless, when preparing for a facelift, some of the things you may be asked to do are as follows:

  • Avoid taking herbal supplements, anti-inflammatory drugs, or aspirin, as they can increase bruising and bleeding
  • Reduce smoking
  • Starting a regime of ‘Arnica Montana’ before the procedure to reduce bruising & swelling
  • Apply certain products to the skin on your face prior to the procedure
  • Adjust your current medications or take certain medications
  • Get a medical evaluation

The requirements will differ from person-to-person, which is why the consultation is so important. 


After you have had a facelift, Dr. Lanfranchi will place a bandage around your face to minimize the bruising and swelling. The most swelling and uncomfortable part of recovery will subside after approximately one week. Full recovery can take two to four weeks, with gradual improvements following for months after your procedure. 

Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to care for incision sites, as well as any medications you need to take.

Am I a Candidate for Facelift?

A good candidate for a facelift has reasonable expectations, is healthy, and knows the risks of the procedure. 

You may not be a suitable candidate if you have depression, heart disease, a bleeding disorder, or any other serious health issues. 

The best thing to do is to book a consultation so that Dr. Lanfranchi can assess your candidacy.

“Dr. Paul Lanfranchi is extraordinary! I recently moved here from NY. For many years I have been back and forth with having a facelift done on myself. I always felt and looked old for my age. It wasn’t until one day I went to see my nephew play and as I go to say hello to my niece one of her friends asked to her “Is that your grandmother” I seriously had tears in my eyes. I turned to my husband and said “that’s it I’m going to find a plastic surgeon to get a FACELIFT “. So my search began reading reviews and making consultations. It was at Dr. Lanfranchi’s office that from the minute I scheduled the appointment and had the consult with Dr. Lanfranchi I left his office with a smile on my face and my Facelift appointment. I could not believe how easy and quick the recovery was. I had my facelift done on a Friday and went to my interview the following Friday. Now at work I love stating my age because the reaction on people’s faces when I tell them I will be 50 next year they are stunned. I now love myself and thank the extraordinary work that Dr . Lanfranchi did with my FACELIFT! Thank you Dr. Lanfranchi for making me look and feel beautiful and younger.
I highly recommend anyone looking to get a facelift visit the Lanfranchi Center. You not regret it!”*
