Also called a rhytidectomy, a facelift is an effective procedure that helps minimize the appearance of age lines or wrinkles on the face and neck. Dr. Craig Hurst has over 14 years of experience in plastic surgery and fellowship training with a particular emphasis on the face. At Hurst Plastic Surgery, in Tucson, he offers traditional full facelifts or mini facelifts, depending on your aesthetic goals, to reverse the signs of aging by making your face more proportioned, fresh, and youthful.

Your satisfaction, which is the primary goal, can only be achieved through realistic expectations.
A traditional or full facelift involves incisions made near the ears and addresses more severe age related changes to the face. It is the procedure of choice to address significant facial skin sagging, considerable neck laxity, and well developed wrinkles and skin folds. On the other hand, a mini facelift is generally recommended for more minor age associated symptoms. This procedure uses shorter incisions and is less invasive than the more traditional method. As a result of these differences, a mini facelift gives a less dramatic change in appearance with positive refinements typically evident up to six years. Since a full facelift is a more extensive procedure, changes are usually visible for up to 15 years.
Recovery can take anywhere from five days to three weeks, with subtle refinements occurring up to six months. At this time, the final refreshed appearance of the face is typically evident. Bruising should subside within two to three weeks. Compression dressings are usually applied to the face for the first few days.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons from 2020, the average surgeon's fee for traditional facelift surgery is $8005. This sum does not include the anesthesia charge, surgical facility expense, or other related costs. A mini facelift is more limited, which is usually reflected by a lower fee.
