What to Know About Facelifts

Why a Facelift Matters

The desire to undergo a facelift procedure can stem from various reasons. Some may wish to reduce the visible signs of aging, while others might want to restore a more defined and youthful facial contour. Factors such as genetics, sun exposure, and lifestyle choices can also impact the aging process, prompting individuals to seek ways to rejuvenate their appearance.

At NuBody Concepts, our team of compassionate and skilled experts recognizes that each person has unique goals and sets of experiences driving them to their initial consultation. We offer a comprehensive range of facelift procedures to cater to individual preferences and circumstances. Our board-certified plastic surgeons work closely with you to understand your concerns and design a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results. Depending on your needs, you may want the traditional facelift surgery, or you may be interested in one of our minimally invasive and non-surgical facelift options. 

Surgical and Non-Surgical Facelifts at NuBody Concepts

At NuBody Concepts, our cosmetic surgery centers offer surgical and non-surgical facelift options to suit your preferences and lifestyle. Surgical facelifts are more invasive procedures that involve tightening and repositioning underlying facial muscles and tissues to address sagging skin and wrinkles. This is an ideal option for individuals with more significant signs of aging or those seeking long-lasting results.

On the other hand, our non-surgical facelift options provide a less invasive alternative with minimal downtime. These procedures utilize advanced technology called radio frequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL). Our RFAL technologies, FaceTite and Renuvion, stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin, effectively reducing fine lines and improving facial contours. These are ideal options for people looking to eliminate sagging around their face and neck. RFAL technologies create healthy collagen production and lead to a more youthful appearance. 

How Painful Is a Face Lift?

It’s normal to want to avoid pain! The board-certified plastic surgeons at NuBody Concepts make every effort to ensure the least pain for our procedures. The level of pain experienced can vary depending on the type of treatment you choose. 

Non-invasive dermal fillers and injectables typically involve minimal discomfort. Botox injections are virtually pain-free thanks to tiny needles. While dermal fillers may cause slightly more discomfort, they offer longer-lasting results. 

On the other hand, our minimally invasive skin tightening procedures might cause some slight pain and discomfort. However, our plastic surgeons often use numbing techniques and local anesthesia to ensure added comfort. After the procedure, patients may experience mild discomfort due to bruising and swelling, which usually subsides within 1-2 days. 

If you opt for a surgical facelift, we use local anesthesia and IV sedation to prevent any pain during the procedure. 

After the surgery you may experience some discomfort as your skin tightens and heals. However, this is temporary and diminishes as the body recovers. We will review and answer all questions and concerns during your initial consultation with the plastic surgeons at our Nashville and Memphis cosmetic surgery centers. 

Surgical Facelift Procedures for Significant Improvement

Our expert plastic surgeons will meticulously plan the procedure for those considering a surgical facelift to achieve natural-looking results. The surgery typically takes around two hours and is performed under IV sedation for your comfort. Ideal candidates for a surgical facelift are individuals with significant sagging skin and deep wrinkles, usually in their 40s to 60s.

During the procedure, we carefully place and remove excess skin while the underlying tissues are lifted and repositioned. After surgery, you can expect some minor swelling and bruising, which will gradually subside over the next few weeks, revealing a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

At NuBody Concepts, our surgical facelift procedures start at $8,500. We offer transparency in our pricing, so our final quote includes all costs. You won’t be surprised with add-on anesthesia or plastic surgeon surcharges later. We create your price quote based on the techniques your plastic surgeon knows to suit your desired outcome best.

Less Invasive Non-Surgical Facelifts at NuBody Concepts

Our non-surgical facelift options provide an excellent alternative for those seeking rejuvenation without surgery. RFAL skin tightening technologies are innovative procedures that stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin, achieving significant improvements without the downtime of traditional surgery.

These non-surgical treatments are suitable for individuals with milder signs of aging or those looking to maintain previous surgical results. The procedures are minimally invasive, with small incisions and reduced recovery time, allowing you to return to your daily activities sooner. Non-surgical facelifts using Renuvion or FaceTite start around $4,900 to $5,500, and our financing options are designed to let you budget more easily.

Combining Facelift Procedures

At NuBody Concepts, we understand that each patient’s needs are unique. That’s why we offer personalized treatment plans that may involve combining your facelift with other surgeries to enhance your overall appearance. During a personal consultation with our plastic surgeon, we will work with you to design a facelift plan tailored to your specific goals.

For instance, you may opt for a combination of the minimally invasive FaceTite procedure to tighten your neck and jawline paired with a surgical lift to address the cheeks and sagging eyelids. Additionally, we can include non-invasive treatments like microneedling and injectable fillers to enhance your results further.

Recovering From Facelift Procedures

If you wonder what to expect after a facelift, you’re in good hands at NuBody Concepts. Our team of dedicated professionals prioritizes your comfort and recovery. Surgical facelifts typically require about 3 to 5 days for wound healing, and the social recovery period may vary depending on individual factors such as swelling and bruising. You can expect much less downtime for non-surgical facelift procedures, allowing you to resume your normal activities within a few days. Our team will provide detailed aftercare instructions and support to ensure a smooth recovery.

If you’re seeking to rejuvenate your appearance and turn back the clock on aging, Nashville– and Memphis-based NuBody Concepts offers a range of facelift procedures that can help.
