Facelift Surgery Vero Beach FL
Genetics, sun exposure, habits such as smoking, or other lifestyle factors can affect how quickly a face might age. Regardless of these factors, ALL faces, unfortunately, are going to eventually age on the outside, losing elasticity and increasing in folds, wrinkles, loss of muscle tone and volume. But you still feel so young on the inside, don’t you?
Perhaps you are thinking of a facelift because of an upcoming wedding, anniversary, special occasion or job interview.
Or you just want to look on the outside more like you feel on the inside. A Full Facelift may be an option:
A Full Facelift at Vero Cosmetic by Dr. Katya Bailor will elevate the skin and deeper tissues of the face, raise the cheeks and eye areas, and remove the jowls at the jawline. A full face lift also includes a neck lift for the full effect of raising and tightening all sagging skin near the face. Dr. Bailor cares about your total surgical experience, and she encourages you to discuss your goals, ask questions and voice any concerns you may have about undergoing rhytidectomy. After acquainting yourself with the procedural information provided on our site, we invite you to call us at 772.562.2400 to schedule your consultation today-or you can email us at
During your personal consultation, Dr. Bailor and her staff will take photos with the Mirror software system that will enable her to give you an idea of the changes that may take place in your features. Together you will discuss the condition and smoothness of your skin, areas of the face where age is beginning to show, and goals and timelines if you are planning for upcoming occasions and dates.
We will ask for your medical history and provide a thorough physical examination before you have your procedure. In your first consultation, your unique facial features and personal goals will help Dr. Bailor determine which procedural strategies will best achieve the results you want.
Where is the surgery performed and what kind of anesthesia is used?
Depending on your situation, a full facelift is done by Dr. Bailor and her staff at a local surgery center with full sedation by an anesthesiologist. Sedation is used to achieve your utmost comfort during a facelift. You will awaken comfortably and have instructions for the weeks following your surgery. General anesthesia is extremely safe in healthy patients undergoing cosmetic surgery.
The layer of tissue underneath your skin that is tightened to support your face is called the SMAS (superficial musculo-aponeurotic system). By tightening this SMAS layer, cheeks are raised reducing the nasolabial folds, jowls are elevated defining the jaw line, and the neck is lifted and tightened to give you an attractive neck angle again. In cases where the neck muscles are too loose and the neck contains excess fat, the muscles will be tightened and the excess fat will be removed. Aging faces lose fat volume so some fat grafting may be necessary during your individual facelift to a more add youthful appearance. Dr. Bailor will explain during consultation the many options available during your surgery to give you the opportunity for a beautiful result.
A facelift is appropriate for healthy people who do not smoke. Reasonable expectations are essential, since no procedure can transform an adult with signs of age into the looks of a teenager. Depending on your bone structure and skin quality, the aesthetic benefits of a facelift generally last about ten years before a touchup procedure may be desired to treat selected areas.
