Facelift: What is it?
UNDERSTANDING FACELIFT & E-LIFT
A facelift tightens loose skin of the lower face and the neck, resulting in a cleaner jaw line and correction of jowls. It is the most effective way to remove excess fat, tighten underlying muscles and redrape the skin. For patients who are seeing the early signs of jowling and loose skin, we also perform the E-lift. The E-Lift is similar to a facelift but less invasive. It has proven to be an excellent option for patients who want to have a less invasive procedure performed early to delay the appearance of aging.

When considering any plastic surgery in Omaha, the most important decision you’ll make is choosing a doctor. At Aesthetic Surgical Images, our doctors use the latest medical advances to create a natural-looking appearance, avoiding the overstretched look that occurs with outdated facelift techniques. In your initial consultation, your surgeon will perform a thorough examination to determine which technique will have the best outcome based on your facial shape, bone structure and skin texture. And, we’ll use our state-of-the art computer imaging system to help you visualize realistic results.
YOUR FACELIFT PROCEDURE
In Omaha, facelift and E-Lift surgery are performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. During a facelift, your surgeon places an incision in the scalp and around the ear to tighten the underlying tissue and remove excess skin. The incision for an E-Lift follows the same pattern but typically does not extend as far. Learn more about facelift and E-Lift surgery by reading through our Frequently Asked Questions.
It’s important to understand that facelift surgery does not address lines on the forehead or crow’s feet. To correct these issues, many of our patients choose to have blepharoplasty or brow lift surgery performed in conjunction with their facelift.
ENJOYING YOUR RESULTS
Facelift patients should plan for a 10-14 day recovery, and E-Lift patients are usually back to their normal routine within 5-7 days. Following our post-surgical instructions will help to maximize comfort and results.
Immediate results are noticeable soon after surgery, but patients start enjoying the full benefits of their newly energized and youthful appearance within 3-6 months. To maximize the longevity of facelift results, we encourage patients to eat nutritious food, exercise and use sunscreen liberally.
