As the aging process, stress, and environmental factors impact our faces over the years, the visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles, sagging skin, and hollow areas, become apparent, making us seem older than we feel. Dr. David Passaretti offers the Dual Plane Plication Facelift® or DP Lift®, an innovative option for Facelift in Connecticut that provides the advantages of the procedure without the associated risks and extended recovery period.

What is a Facelift?

The facelift procedure, or rhytidectomy, is designed to lift the skin on the face and the neck, providing patients a refreshed, youthful appearance with a natural-looking outcome. Since this is a delicate procedure, it’s important to work with a highly skilled surgeon who has extensive experience. The Facelift is often combined with other cosmetic rejuvenation procedures to enhance overall facial aesthetics and skin texture, delivering dramatic improvements and heightened confidence.

Dual Plane Plication Lift

This advanced Facelift technique rejuvenates the face with natural-looking results by adjusting the skin and deeper layers of facial tissue, the SMAS or deep plane, separately. The use of innovative barbed suture technology and corrective movement in five independent vectors or directions allows for superior and dynamic results. For totally comprehensive restoration, we can also use laser resurfacing to improve skin tone and texture.

Facelift Benefits

Bright, youthful, and vibrant facial rejuvenation is possible with a Connecticut Facelift procedure. Patients can enjoy:

  • Smooth, tight skin on the face and neck
  • Fewer deep wrinkles and creases
  • Restore volume to the cheeks or other hollow areas
  • Complete personalized and modification possibilities

Am I a candidate for a Facelift?

Candidates for a rhytidectomy will want to address major signs of aging in the face, including lines, wrinkles, creases, and volume loss, and may also want to improve skin tone and texture. Patients should be in generally good health and should understand the likely and realistic outcomes of surgery.

At a consultation, he will get to know you and your goals and craft a comprehensive treatment plan that outlines the procedure and provides preparation requirements.

Facelift Procedure

Facelift surgery is performed under full sedation and typically takes about two to four hours. Incisions are made depending on the type of procedure you are undergoing, adjustments are made to the skin and tissue, and then the incisions are closed with sutures. In most cases, this is an outpatient surgery and does not require an overnight stay.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Following a facelift Connecticut patients can expect to see significant recovery, with the majority of swelling resolving after about 10 to 14 days. Full healing and optimal results are typically visible around six months post-surgery.

The Facelift has been one of the most common cosmetic surgeries for decades, and as surgical techniques advance, it continues to be a frequently performed procedure.

Recovery typically includes some tenderness and swelling but is usually not particularly painful. Many patients manage discomfort with over-the-counter pain meds.

This procedure is considered very safe when performed by a qualified professional. Possible side effects with any surgery could include bleeding, infection, unexpected scarring, or temporary numbness.

Many patients see great results after the procedure for as long as 10 to 15 years.

The cost of a Facelift varies depending on the method used, surgeon and facility fees, and if additional procedures will also be performed, among other factors.
