Face Lift

Over the last decade or more, facelift procedures have increased significantly and grown in popularity in Austin and throughout the nation. Individuals desire to remove signs of aging such as wrinkles, loose skin, and deep lines and a facelift can address these concerns.

If you are considering a facelift, the first step is to have a consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons here at Wellspring Plastic Surgery in Austin to evaluate whether facelift surgery is appropriate for you. Your doctor will review a number of factors, including your bone structure, hairline, skin elasticity, wrinkles, medical history, and family history. It is important to let your doctor know about any current medical problems you have as well as any medications you are taking. Certain medications may produce unwanted reactions to a facelift procedure.

Mid Face Lift

A mid-face lift is a surgical procedure which primarily rejuvenates the middle region of your face. This is the area across your face that includes your cheekbones and the upper portion of your nasolabial folds. It is also a critical component in the appearance of your eyes and the region around your eyes. When gravity and aging negatively affect the underlying structures that support the midface, this region weighs down your lower eyelids and alters their appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

A facelift is the ultimate surgical procedure for making a man or woman look younger. It is the standard to which all other facial rejuvenating procedures are compared.

A facelift involves an incision around the ear and sometimes under the chin. A facelift removes loose skin, thereby tightening the remaining skin. It elevates sagging tissues that cause nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It makes the outline of the jaw clearer and tightens the skin and muscles of the neck.

Facelifts are for both men and women. Candidates are individuals who have a sufficient amount of facial laxity to make the procedure worthwhile. Typical physical characteristics are visible neck muscles that are causing banding in the neck, laxity of skin or an excess of fat in the neck, a loss of the clear border along the jaw between face and neck, jowling, deep lines from the corner of the mouth to the jaw, and lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Low eyebrows are not treated with a facelift; those are fixed with a browlift. Extra skin and/or fat of the eyelids are treated with an eyelift procedure.

The most important factor to consider is whether a facelift does what you want it to do. A facelift tightens and lifts the face, but it does not fundamentally change elasticity. It does not remove fine lines or sunspots.

A nicely done study showed a portfolio of photographs of a group of patients before facelift and another portfolio of photographs to groups of observers. On average the facelift patients were judged to be nine to ten years younger!

A patient will always look better for the rest of their life than their imaginary identical twin that never had a facelift. It is not as if one day the result goes away and you look the same as if you never had one. Remember, gravity and normal aging occurs after the facelift has healed. In general, patients will develop enough laxity that repeating the facelift starts to become reasonable after seven to ten years later. The results last longer on a younger patient, but it is also true that by and large the woman getting a facelift younger will be more interested in repeating it at a shorter interval than an older woman.

A facelift is more about lifting than it is about removing wrinkles. By elevating and tightening, the wrinkles on the cheeks will be a little more stretched flat and will look better. But it will not effect anything in the chin and upper lip area. A facelift does not actually make any change in the skin itself. So some patients will also do a peel either at the same time or later.

Dr. Cone and his staff were amazing. They took such good care of me and my daughter like family. Highly recommend for adult and kids! Esther Cheung-Phillips
These guys are awesome! The personal care given by Dr. Langevin is absolutely second to none. You will feel like the only patient there Skeeter Ham
From beginning to end Dr. Langevin and his staff took care of me in the most excellent way. From scheduling all the way to post op, they never made me feel like a number but a human that was in good hands. I really appreciated the personal call from Dr. Langevin- not from his staff but from him. That is rare these days to have doctors call you themselves to check on you after surgery. I couldn't be more happy with my results. Aguerra Love
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Cone at Wellspring. Their entire staff is incredibly kind and obviously care about their patients. Crystal was so sweet and such a pleasure to work with. They did a removal of a large facial nevus for me and I am so happy with the results! The entire thing has been truly lifechanging for me. I am very grateful for Dr. Cone & his team and look forward to seeing them when I go for my follow-up visit. Kaylie Peterman
My experience so far has been amazing, even though my anxiety is over the roof when it comes to Dr's. Dr.Cone and his staff have been awesome and make me feel as comfortable as they can. I got otoplasty done and I can't wait for the final results, I do definitely recommend this place for anything else you'd like to get done. I do plan on getting other things done in the Future and without a doubt this is the place! Thank you Dr.Cone, Crystal, Brandi, & Cici you all are the best! Dori Dori
