Face Lift Surgery in Princeton
Proudly serving Mercer County
Considering a facelift in Princeton? As part of the natural aging process, the skin begins to slow its production of collagen and elastin. These vital proteins are responsible for keeping the skin smooth and resilient, but as they are depleted, we see a gradual sagging and wrinkling of the skin that leads to an aged appearance. To restore a natural-looking and youthful appearance to the lower face, neck, and jawline, Dr. Jill Hazen offers facelift procedures to patients in the Princeton area desiring a younger and tighter look.
Facelift procedures in Princeton revitalize the patient’s facial appearance by lifting and tightening the skin for long-lasting anti-aging results that cannot be achieved with other non-invasive measures. During a facelift, patients are given local anesthesia prior to small incisions being made in the natural creases around the ears. This ensures that any scars or incision marks are discreet, and the only noticeable difference is a more youthful facial appearance. Facelifts target the deep structural layers of the skin, allowing the patient to achieve a firmer jaw and fuller cheeks for a noticeably smoother complexion.
Like most surgical procedures, facelifts require several days of downtime for recovery. Patients can expect to remove any bandages about two days following the procedure, with side effects like bruising or swelling dissipating in a week or two. Although facelifts require some recovery, the transformative results are unmatched by any non-invasive treatment.
Facelifts with Dr. Jill Hazen at Hazen Plastic Surgery in Princeton start to show results in as little as two weeks, but optimal results appear about three months following the procedure. Look as young as you feel with facelifts in Princeton at Hazen Plastic Surgery. Schedule your consultation today by calling 609.921.7747.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do facelift procedures work?
Facelifts in Princeton work by creating small incisions in the natural folds of the patient’s face. Since Dr. Hazen discreetly hides incisions in these areas, there are few scars to accompany the transformative results. The structural layers of the skin are tightened and lifted for a firmer and more toned complexion and long-lasting results.
When will I see my results?
Optimal results from facelifts at Hazen Plastic Surgery appear about three months following the initial procedure, but can begin to appear once any swelling and bruising dissipates after a few weeks.
What are the side effects?
Side effects include bruising and swelling, and patients will need to wear a bandage for a day or two following the procedure to limit swelling. Despite the initial swelling, most patients return to normal activities within two weeks following the procedure.
Are facelift procedures painful?
Dr. Hazen treats patients under local anesthesia to reduce pain during treatment, and patients can seek pain-relieving medication for the first few days following treatment, although this is usually not necessary.
