facelift at the Philadelphia area’s Chapin Aesthetics is a type of surgery that can eliminate the early signs of aging from the face and neck areas. It is the most thorough and complete method of addressing wrinkles and the other signs of aging from the face.

Over the years, several different types of facelift procedures have been developed. An experienced surgeon can tailor the procedure to suit your unique needs. While there are different techniques available, the traditional facelift is the most comprehensive and extensive procedure for addressing facial aging.


A facelift can address several signs of aging in one procedure. It can help correct sagging skin in the middle of the facial region, eliminate creases located around your mouth and nose, address the loss of volume, get rid of that dreaded double chin, and even removed severe wrinkles and fine lines. It is a great solution for rejuvenating your overall look for a more youthful and beautiful appearance.

This plastic surgery procedure can also be combined with other rejuvenating procedures such as such as a brow lift for even more improvements to your look. If you experience extensive fat loss in the cheeks, you can combine it with a fat grafting technique or dermal filler injections as well.

A facelift can restore your youthful looks unlike any other cosmetic procedure. You can expect to shed off a decade or more from your face under the expertise of an experienced surgeon. Unlike other anti-aging treatments, the results of a facelift are long lasting. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, and follow your doctor’s orders, you can expect to experience the results of the procedure for years.


For traditional facelifts, your doctor may utilize an anesthetic in order to ease any discomfort you may feel. Once the anesthetic is applied, your doctor will move forward with making the necessary incisions.

The incisions begin from the temples but remain hidden in the hairline. They extend to the ears and lower scalp. Your doctor will access the underlying tissues through this incision. He will remove excess skin; redistribute fat, and reposition the muscles and other tissues. The skin is then repositioned to cover the new contours, and any remaining excess skin is removed in the end.


The facelift is extensive surgery that requires some downtime for recovery. You may be able to return to your normal routine within 10-15 days. You may still need to refrain from heavy physical activities for two to three weeks or as your doctor recommends.

You may experience some swelling, but this will subside in time. If you experience prolonged discomfort after the surgery, your doctor can help ease it away by prescribing certain medications. You need to be sure to follow any post-surgical instructions given to you in order to experience the best results without any complications.
