What Is A Facelift?
A facelift, or rhytidectomy, helps restore your face’s youthful and firm contours physically and mentally. It’s so transforming that many people experience increased energy levels and a feeling of well-being upon seeing themselves in the mirror after a facelift.
Dr. Jacobsen performs facelifts by tightening loose skin and underlying tissues and repositioning fat to create more youthful contours. He makes incisions in the hairline near the ear to lift and reposition excess skin with minimal scarring.
Facelifts are often clubbed with neck lift surgery to give the most natural-looking results. And there’s no substitute for the surgical repositioning of sagging deep tissues and excess skin removal to rejuvenate your appearance and make you look natural and fresh.
There are many benefits associated with a facelift like help with:
- Tightening saggy skin
- Giving a more youthful appearance
- Improving multiple signs of aging through a single procedure
- Eliminating a double chin
- Reducing jowls while defining the jawline
- Addressing severe wrinkles and lines with minimal scars
- Giving natural-looking, long-lasting skin
The costs for a facelift depend on the technique Dr. Jacobsen uses and the invasiveness of the surgery. While the average price is $10,000, it costs more for complex procedures.
About The Facelift Procedure
Dr. Jacobsen identifies the areas that concern you the most and target the facelift to address the issues. He customizes the procedure to preserve your unique qualities while restoring your foundation structures.
Dr. Jacobsen tightens loose skin and underlying tissues, removes skin to tighten the face and neck, and repositions fat to create more youthful contours. He makes incisions in inconspicuous areas like along the ears to reposition deep tissues and remove excess skin.
He may even make an incision under the chin to help tighten the neck.
The incisions are usually closed with 7-0 Vicryl absorbable suture material, which falls out on its own after two weeks. They are then sealed with a fine layer of flexible and sterile DermaBond to prevent bleeding and let you shower immediately after the surgery.
If required, he may also reposition the hanging muscle bands in the neck for a more defined neckline. Adding volume and the proper lift direction helps restore and freshen your face without changing your essence.
Facelift recovery is different for each person. It’s normal to have some pain, swelling, and bruising after the surgery, which fades within two weeks of the surgery. While it’s okay to perform light exercises like walking within the second week of recovery, Dr. Jacobsen recommends avoiding strenuous activity, including lifting and straining, for at least a month.
If you worry about your facelift scars, you needn’t.
It’s no doubt that scars are inevitable after surgical procedures that involve incisions. However, Dr. Jacobsen takes great care in minimizing the appearance of the wounds by placing them in concealed areas. And while the scars look red and raised at the start of your recovery, they begin to lighten and flatten over time to become less noticeable as the incisions heal.

Dr. Jacobsen and his team have been performing reconstructive and cosmetic surgery treatments, including facelifts in Phoenix, Arizona, since 1994.
A facelift helps improve visible signs of facial and neck aging like sagging, deep creases, and loose facial skin due to heredity, stress, gravity, and environmental conditions. It, however, will not change your fundamental appearance or stop the body’s natural aging process.
Facelifts can only be performed surgically, and no non-surgical rejuvenation treatments are giving the same results.
