Proven Techniques, Outstanding Results

Facelift surgery addresses all of the various facial tissue levels, including the underlying muscles known as the superficial muscular aponeurotic system, or SMAS. Dr. Gross uses this proven, comprehensive technique for facelift surgery. Unlike previous versions of the procedure, which often relied on tightening the skin, creating an artificial, "windblown" appearance, SMAS facelifts manipulate deeper tissues by lifting, tightening, and repositioning muscle to actually improve the structure of the face. While the skin is also redraped and tightened slightly to ease the look of fine lines and wrinkles, it's no longer the primary method for rejuvenating the face. Today's facelift surgery can correct an array of common signs of aging in the lower portion of the face, including:

  • Sagging facial skin
  • Jowls
  • Loose neck skin
  • Poorly defined jawline

Dr. Gross conceals facelift incisions both behind and in front of the ear crease. Attention to detail in the planning, placement, and closure of these incisions is the key to his consistently natural-looking results.

Dr. Gross makes facelift incisions so they are hidden in the hairline and around the ears. He uses the SMAS facelift for better longevity, minimal scarring, and natural-looking results.

Facelift With a Facial Plastic Surgery Specialist

Studies show that cosmetic procedures performed earlier in a patient's life offer the longest-lasting results because younger skin maintains better elasticity and tone. "Patients are seeking facial rejuvenation at a younger age, and we are seeing better treatment outcomes when we start with younger, healthier skin," says Dr. Gross.

Dr. Gross uses computer imaging to simulate your facelift results during your initial consultation. This technology helps him adapt each facelift procedure to each patient's unique anatomy and goals. During your consultation, you and Dr. Gross may work together to virtually experiment with different surgical techniques to ensure you're both working toward a common goal.

Facial Plastic Surgery Possibilities

Dr. Gross customizes each face lift in Orlando to get the best possible results and may recommend specific procedures such as:

  • Mini Facelift
  • Facelift with neck lift
  • Chin tuck (submentoplasty)
  • Ultherapy® to supplement facelift
  • Eyelid surgery

Dr. Gross also sometimes recommends a mini facelift for patients who want to treat signs of facial aging, but do not need as extensive a treatment as a traditional facelift. Additionally, he frequently combines a facelift with a neck lift to address sagging neck skin, as well as a specialized procedure to eliminate neck bands called platysma muscle plication.

A submentoplasty, or chin tuck, is another alternative procedure with limited downtime that corrects the fullness under the chin in combination with liposuction. The incision is hidden under the chin in a natural crease. Dr. Gross can recommend the right procedure for you during your comprehensive consultation and skin assessment.

Although facelift surgery is a popular option on its own, occasionally its results can be complemented by those of eyelid lift surgery or even a laser peel.

"We are finding greater success and improved longevity with Ultherapy® treatments to enhance results following facelift and mini lift," according to Dr. Gross. He recommends an Ultherapy treatment, which uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen growth, about 6 to 9 months after surgery.

Facelift Cost

Dr. Gross meticulously plans his facelift surgeries to meet the precise needs of each patient. More significant procedures generally cost more than mini facelifts or surgeries that target only minor complaints. At Primera Plastic Surgery, most facelift patients can expect to pay between $10,000 and $15,000 for their surgeries. This is a total that includes surgical fees, anesthesia, and facility costs. The overwhelming majority of patients who undergo facelift surgery feel that the expense is well worth the lasting results. During your consultation, Dr. Gross offers you a more precise quote that reflects all elements of your surgery.

Dr. Gross is also pleased to offer his patients financing options to help them work facelift surgery into their budgets. Our staff will help you navigate a plan that suits your lifestyle.

A Smooth Recovery

Facelift surgery is an outpatient procedure at Primera Surgery Center. However, you'll need a trusted loved one to drive you home and stay with you for at least the remainder of the day following surgery. As with any surgical procedure, you will experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising. With the help of prescribed medications, these symptoms should resolve within 7 to 10 days.

You'll be scheduled for a follow-up appointment after about 1 week, during which Dr. Gross removes your sutures. Most patients feel comfortable and confident enough to return to work and other daily activities within 10 to 14 days, using makeup to cover any residual bruising. More strenuous activities, such as exercising, should be avoided for 2 to 3 weeks or more. You should also limit your exposure to the sun for several months in order to avoid excessive scarring and other complications. Dr. Gross recommends adopting sunscreen into your permanent skincare regimen in order to avoid future skin damage and to prolong your results for as long as possible.

The results of your facelift can last for more than a decade, but it's worth noting that a small percentage of patients require a second procedure in order to achieve their desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Gross evaluates your degree of facial aging and helps you understand the likelihood of achieving your cosmetic goals.
