When is it time?

It’s a nearly universal truth that the first place we start to display signs of age is in the face. Granted, the majority of the rest of our bodies is hidden under clothing, but that’s part of the problem—the face endures constant exposure to sunlight, which mottles and ages the skin over time. Taken together with stress and the relentless pull of gravity, it all adds up to deep wrinkles and sagging folds that can leave you feeling insecure and years older than you are.



How Do You Know When It’s Time for a Facelift?

So what’s the right cosmetic solution for you? With the widespread popularity of non-surgical procedures like dermal fillers, Botox, and other injectables, it’s an increasingly complicated question. But as you continue to age, the skin and underlying tissues in your face lose their elasticity, and begin to droop and sag. When you reach the point when you’re confident that your current facial care regimen is no longer getting the job done, it's probably time to consider a facelift.

The facelift most effectively treats:

  • Sagging skin
  • Loose skin along the jawline (jowls)
  • Deep folds around the nose
  • Creases around the mouth

Feeling the Benefits of a Facelift in Seattle

Here at the Larrabee Center for Plastic Surgery in Seattle’s First Hill neighborhood, we have a long and proud history of specializing in facial plastic surgery procedures. When you come in for your private consultation, you'll meet with either Dr. Larrabee or Dr. Nadeau, both of whom are facelift specialists. You’ll have the opportunity to speak with your doctor at length and discuss, in depth, your goals and expectations for facial rejuvenation.  This conversation with help equip you with the information you need to decide if a facelift is the right next step for you.

Dr. Larrabee’s personalized techniques are described in his many articles and his textbook The Art and Craft of Facial Rejuvenation. He has performed thousands of “Deep Vector Facelifts” in the USA and around the globe from Germany to Latin America, Australia and China. His technique combines unrivaled safety with long lasting, natural appearing results.

Many patients assume that they’ll have to be on bed rest for an extended period following their facelift, but in truth you should be able to be up and around pretty quickly following your procedure—as long you remember to take it easy right off the bat. Of course, it’s of paramount importance that you be exceedingly gentle with your face and hair during the early stages of recovery. You won’t be able to see the ultimate results right away, so you’ll need to be patient as the swelling and bruising subside over the first few weeks after the procedure.

Once your face has fully healed, look out, world — you’ll be stepping out with a rejuvenated face that looks years younger. If you think you’re ready to do away with the signs of facial aging, click the button below to get in touch with us today.
