Facelift

How It Works

Facelift

Before your facelift, Dr. Reilly will meet with you for a one-on-one consultation. He’ll go over your concerns with you and carefully note the structure of your face. Together, you’ll decide if a facelift is the right procedure for you or if you might be better served with another procedure or procedures.

On the day of your surgery, you’ll be given local anesthetic with sedation. This isn’t the same as general anesthesia, and Dr. Reilly will explain all the differences to you before the day of your appointment. Once you’re comfortable, Dr. Reilly will carefully lift the underlying layers of the skin to tighten the area around your eyelids, chin, cheekbones, and jaw. He’ll also remove any excess skin that might contribute to an older appearance.

Once you wake up, you’ll receive detailed aftercare instructions, and soon, you’ll look almost a decade younger!

Why You Should Choose Dr. Reilly

Personalized care in Shelton, CT

When you’re going to be staring a surgeon’s handiwork in the face every time you look in a mirror, it pays to pick the right surgeon. An inexperienced surgeon could leave you with unnatural-looking results. You want to pick a doctor with plenty of experience and the dedication to monitor your case for the best results.

Dr. Reilly is that doctor. He’s been practicing as a plastic surgeon for decades. He understands the structure of the face and knows how to produce good results. After having performed hundreds of facelifts, he knows how to work with your unique facial structure to turn back the clock.

Plus, Dr. Reilly understands that a truly exemplary surgeon can’t just meet with your consultation and see you again on the day of the surgery. He has to be there for every pre- and post-op appointment. That’s exactly what Dr. Reilly does – and what many of his competitors don’t do. Dr. Reilly even goes one step further, giving patients his cell phone number so they can call if they ever have questions or concerns.

If you’re considering a facelift, see for yourself why so many patients around the Shelton, CT area choose John Reilly, M.D. for facelifts and other procedures. Call today or fill in the form to request a consultation!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Call us if you have any more questions. (203) 924-2900

  • How do I know if I’m a candidate for the procedure?

    If you’d like to look almost a decade younger, you could be a candidate for a facelift. You should also have deep creases in your nasolabial folds, jowls, sagging cheeks, or loose skin around the neck. If you would like to look younger but don’t have these features, Dr. Reilly can work with you to find procedures that will give you the youthful appearance you’re looking for.

  • Will this procedure leave scars?

    A facelift will require incisions, and incisions always leave scars. Rest assured, however, that these incisions will be discreet. Dr. Reilly might place the incisions above your hairline at your temple or under your chin, meaning the resulting scars are unlikely to show.

  • What’s the recovery like after the surgery?

    Dr. Reilly will give you detailed plans tailored to your particular procedure. You’ll want to take it easy for a couple of days to let any bruising or swelling from the surgery subside. You should be able to get back to work in ten to fourteen days, though if you have a physically demanding job, you might have to wait longer.

  • How much will the surgery cost?

    Because each surgery is tailored to the patient’s individual goals, costs vary from patient to patient. You can discuss the cost with Dr. Reilly’s staff at your initial consultation. Rest assured that there are many payment and financing options available.
