A facelift surgery can help our Des Moines, West Des Moines, and plastic surgery patients of the Heartland reverse the effects of age, exhaustion, and exposure to the natural elements. Dr. Maurice and Dr. Carlisle are highly skilled at this procedure and focus on giving patients beautiful results that look natural and not “done.” The goal is not to make you look like a different person, but instead to turn back the clock and help you look like a younger, more rested version of yourself. A facelift is one of the most popular and powerful surgical enhancement options for patients from age 45 to 75.
Each facelift by Dr. Maurice and Dr. Carlisle is specifically performed to address each patient’s needs and desires. Our highly trained plastic surgeons will assess every aspect of your face, including skin texture, bone structure and muscle tone. The next step is that they will listen to your vision of the desired final outcome.
The procedure is custom tailored to your face using incisions that are hidden in natural skin creases or within the hair in order to bring harmony to your face. Dr. Maurice and Dr. Carlisle use a variety of maneuvers to tighten the underlying facial muscles, lift fat that is sagging, and remove excess skin and fat.
Facelift surgery takes about four to five hours to complete. You may be discharged home the same day of surgery or stay in the hospital. Only consulting with Dr. Maurice and Dr. Carlisle will help you decide what is right for you.
