Facelift in San Francisco


Facelift Surgery

The face is one of the first areas of the body to show signs of aging.

Over time, as the skin is exposed to sunlight and other environmental factors, it tends to lose its smooth texture and elasticity and can become loose and wrinkled. Facelift surgery is an effective procedure that lifts the facial tissues to eliminate imperfections like wrinkles and sagging for anyone concerned about these signs of aging.

Dr. Henry and her team of specialists will provide you with several options to achieve your aesthetic goals.

Benefits of Facelift Surgery

Natural-Looking Results

Many people hesitate to undergo plastic surgery for fear that their results may look unnatural. Facelift surgery will not only tighten the facial skin and muscles, but it will also provide you with results that look natural, leaving you with smooth, beautiful skin.

Youthful Contours

The physical changes that occur with aging can betray you, making you look older than you feel. This is why many patients take advantage of surgical options like facelift surgery to enhance or “freshen up” their look and regain a youthful facial appearance.

Improved Self-Esteem

Patients with skin that appears worn out and saggy may feel self-conscious about the way they look. Facelift surgery will not only reduce visible signs of facial aging, but it can also boost your confidence and self-esteem.


Your Facelift Procedure


An incision will be made above the hairline, where it will not be visible. The size of the incision will vary depending on how much lifting is needed.


Dr. Henry will use sutures to tighten and lift the facial tissues to improve the contours of your face. Excess fat and skin will be trimmed away to reduce the appearance of sagging and fine lines. The remaining skin will then be repositioned, and the incision will be closed.


Dr. Henry can combine your facelift surgery with other facial procedures to completely rejuvenate your appearance. Commonly combined procedures include:



Following your surgery, your face will be loosely bandaged to protect your new contours. You may experience some pain and discomfort, which can be alleviated with medication prescribed to you by Dr. Henry. Swelling and bruising may also occur but should resolve after a few days. Make sure to keep your head elevated when resting to help minimize swelling. You will be able to return to work after 10 days but should avoid all strenuous activities for at least two weeks or until instructed otherwise.


Facelift surgery will leave patients with smoother skin, shapelier facial contours, and an impressive appearance of youthful vitality.


As with any surgical procedure, scarring may be involved. Dr. Henry offers the latest facelift techniques to create minimal scars. Any visible scarring can be hidden with makeup and will likely fade over time.


The cost of your facelift procedure will vary depending on surgical fees, anesthesia fees, and other factors. During your consultation, Dr. Henry will provide you with an accurate cost sheet to determine the best plan to help you reach your aesthetic goals.
