What Is a Facelift?

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that helps improve the visible signs of aging in the face and neck. When performing facelift surgery, Dr. Lofman aims to restore your look without changing your essential appearance. 

At Plastic Surgery of Michigan, we offer customized facelifts for men and women. This surgery can tighten skin, smooth jowls, and reduce and sometimes eliminate deep-set facial wrinkles. By combining a facelift with an autologous fat transfer, many patients can even restore volume loss simultaneously. As a facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Lofman can address skin laxity and tighten underlying tissues.

With a customized approach, each Michigan facelift will address your distinct concerns, including:

What Can I Expect During a Facelift?

With patient commitment and education at the forefront of Dr. Lofman’s mission, he educates each patient about the steps involved in their facelift procedures to ensure a comfortable experience from consultation to post-op. Each Michigan facelift patient will have a unique experience, but here are some general steps.

Before Surgery

Plan to arrive at the hospital or surgery center an hour before your procedure. After our team checks you in, Dr. Lofman will ensure you are comfortable, answer any last-minute questions, review crucial details, and perform surgical markings. After you are resting safely under general anesthesia, Dr. Lofman will begin your facelift in Oakland County.

During Surgery

According to your procedural plan, Dr. Lofman will reposition and tighten your facial tissues and underlying muscles while removing loose, excess skin. Dr. Lofman uses tiny incisions that will heal virtually unnoticeably.

Depending on your procedural plan, facelifts typically last two to three hours.


Facelift procedures are an outpatient surgery, so you’ll need someone to drive you home and stay with you for the first few days to assist you. Swelling and bruising are common, and you may experience numbness; however, these side effects gradually improve over the next six weeks. Elevating your head while sleeping and using cold compresses can help reduce swelling and bruising. Dr. Lofman will detail recovery instructions and when to return for follow-up appointments.

How Soon Will I See My Facelift Results?

A facelift recovery process depends on your procedure’s extent. For the first few weeks, most people experience bruising, tightness, and swelling that temporarily obscure their results. You’ll start seeing an improvement as your face heals and swelling dissipates, typically by a month post-procedure. However, residual swelling may take six to 12 months to subside. 

With optimal results and follow-up care, our Michigan facelift will leave you with a more youthful, well-rested appearance with results that last up for 10 to 15 years.

Novi, MI, Facelift

The cost of a Michigan facelift depends on your individual needs, aesthetic goals, and the extent of your concerns. At your consultation with Dr. Lofman, you will receive a detailed breakdown of your facelift surgery cost in Oakland County.

Following a facelift, you may need to take at least a week or two away from work and social activities. You should begin to see facial contour improvements after three to four weeks, but you may still experience residual swelling and tightness. Most patients can resume typical activities about a month after their facelift. Residual swelling may take six months to a year to fully resolve.

Plan to take at least one to two weeks off work. Those with physically strenuous jobs or small children to care for may need a longer recovery time. Please avoid strenuous activities, including exercising and heavy lifting, for at least six weeks following surgery. Dr. Lofman advises taking gentle walks as soon as you feel up to it.
