Facelift in Washington, DC

The most visible signs of aging first appear on your face. Wrinkles, fine lines, loss of volume, and sagging tissues can appear as early as your forties, affecting your self-confidence. While there’s no way to stop the passage of time, at DC Cosmetics, we address the effects of facial aging with an expertly performed facelift to restore the definition and elegance of youth.

What is a facelift?

A facelift corrects facial aging. Unlike temporary anti-aging treatments such as dermal fillers and neuromodulators, a facelift is a comprehensive facial rejuvenation treatment, treating the following:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Sagging cheeks
  • Jowls
  • Lost definition at jawline
  • Sagging skin/excess fat on upper neck

Facelifts for younger patients

For younger people who are experiencing facial aging on the lower face and neck n, the technique favored by Dr. Khalifeh produces minimal scars, often referred to as a “mini facelift.” A mini facelift limits the treatment areas to the periauricular area (around the ear) and the submental area (beneath the chin), costs less, and is far less invasive.

In a mini facelift, Dr. Khalifeh will make targeted incisions that allow him to reposition and tighten the skin to:

  • Smooth away jowls
  • Correct mild skin laxity on the lower third of the face and upper neck
  • Smooth etched-in smile lines (nasolabial folds)
  • Restore youthful definition at the jawline
  • Remove a double chin
  • Smooth the upper neck area for a youthful look

Before & After

Comprehensive treatments for facial rejuvenation

When you come to DC Cosmetics, we work closely with you to develop a comprehensive rejuvenation treatment plan. Several procedures can be combined with a facelift to give you comprehensive rejuvenation:

  • Blepharoplasty: An eyelid lift, also called a blepharoplasty, is a specialized treatment to restore drooping eyelids and remove excess skin that has begun to cover your eye after suffering the effects gravity over the years.
  • Liposuction: If you suffer from a double chin, our laser liposuction treatment can get rid of that excess fat at the same time we perform your facelift.

Nonsurgical alternatives for facial rejuvenation

There are many excellent non-invasive or minimally invasive treatments that can reverse some (but not all) the signs of aging.  While nothing can compare with the results of a surgical facelift, patients with select signs of aging can benefit from non-invasive treatments to delay the need or desire for a facelift. These non-surgical options include:

What is the recovery like after a facelift?

Recovery from a facelift usually takes around two weeks, and four weeks of healing are usually needed before you can resume vigorous activity.

Will I have scars from a facelift?

Plastic surgery is both an art and a science, and the artistry involves carefully placing incisions so that the scarring is hidden. Dr. Khalifeh is a board-certified facial plastic surgeon and knows how to provide the best possible results with the least amount of scarring.

How much does a facelift cost?

Each facelift is tailored to the patient, so there’s no set price. You can expect, however, to pay in the range of $7,000 to $11,000 for a facelift.
