At Dr. Herte’s practice, men and women alike seek her expertise in facial rejuvenation surgery to help them restore their face’s natural youthfulness. During personal consultations, the following questions concerning facelifts are commonly asked:

faceliftHow do I know if I’m ready for a facelift?
You may have little to a fair amount of loose, sagging skin in the middle and lower thirds of the face. You should be free from existing health issues that could potentially increase your risk of complications during and after surgery. And you should be able to take time off from work and other responsibilities for up to two weeks while you recovery.

How long do facelift results last?
Facelift results turn back the clock but the aging process still continues. As a general rule, expect 10-15 years. However, other factors may influence the longevity of facelift results such as the facelift technique that was performed and a patient’s lifestyle habits.
