Facelift in Melbourne, FL
Men and women in Central Florida who are over 40 years old want to look their best, and facelift surgery can reduce moderate to severe signs of aging. Castellon Plastic Surgery Center, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Mauricio J. Castellon, MD, offers facelifts and other types of facial surgery for men and women who live in Melbourne, Brevard County and the surrounding communities of Central Florida.
What is a Facelift?
Before breast augmentation became popular, facelifts were the most requested type of plastic surgery amongst women. Today’s facelift techniques allow board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Castellon, to help men and women look younger and feel more confident in every type of environment.
Dr. Castellon now offers men and women in Central Florida the innovative minimally-invasive facelift known as a MACS (minimal access cranial suspension) lift. The surgery lasts under two hours and provides similar results to a traditional facelift with significantly less scarring. The MACS facelift differs from other facelift procedures because the incision is placed in front of the ear, around the earlobe and behind the ear. The placement hides the resulting scar very well. No incision is required along the hairline.
Benefits of a Facelift
A facelift improves sagging facial skin, jowls, and loose neck skin by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles and re-draping the skin.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Facelift?
The MACS lift targets men and women who are middle aged and older who have sagging cheeks, jowls, and loose skin under the chin area. This procedure is most effective for the neck, jawline, cheeks, and lower eyelids. Additionally, the MACS lift provides an option for a younger person who wants to reverse early signs of facial aging.
What Do I Need to Do Before Having a Face Lift?
Dr. Castellon is one of the few board-certified plastic surgeons in the country that is experienced with the MACS lift. Schedule a consultation with him to learn about the procedure and how it will improve your appearance.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Facelift?
You should arrive at the surgery center at your scheduled time. Our medical staff will help you get comfortable and prepare you for the surgery. After the surgery, you will spend a few hours in a recovery area before being released. You will need to have a friend or family member drive you home and stay with you for two to three days.
How Long Does It Take to Perform a Facelift?
The MACS facelift takes less than two hours in most cases.
What Should I Expect After My Facelift?
The recovery time for the MACS lift varies with the individual patient based on factors such as patient’s age, lifestyle, and skin condition. We instruct patients to sleep and rest with the head in an elevated position for the first week.
When Will I See Full Results of My Face Lift?
Healing from a facelift takes time, so you should be patient with your body. Get plenty of rest and in a few months, you will see the full results of your facelift.
How Long Will the Results of a Facelift Last?
Facelift surgery does not stop the aging process, but when you have your facelift performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Castellon, you will enjoy many years of a looking and feeling younger.
