Facelift Q&A

What is a facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure that helps reverse the signs of aging. This popular treatment targets the area around the lower eyelids down to the nasolabial folds that run on both sides of the nose, as well as around the corners of the mouth. 

Facelift surgery dramatically reduces the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, and stretched or saggy skin around the face.

Who is a candidate for a facelift?

The experienced cosmetic surgeons at Sanctuary Cosmetic Center typically recommend facelifts for patients with deep wrinkles and saggy skin. Unlike Botox® and dermal fillers, a facelift produces permanent results. That’s why it’s crucial that you choose a cosmetic surgeon who understands the nuances of your facial structure.

Above all else, the providers at Sanctuary Cosmetic Center are committed to delivering the most natural results possible. The goal is to reduce wrinkles and tighten saggy skin without changing the overall shape of your face.

You may be an ideal candidate for facelift surgery if you have saggy skin in the lower two-thirds of your face, droopy jowls and cheeks due to volume loss, loose skin or excess fat in your neck, or deep creases in your lower eyelids.

How do surgeons perform facelifts?

Sanctuary Cosmetic Center is a state-of-the-art facility that allows the surgical team to perform facelift procedures on-site. The procedure can take anywhere from 2-4 hours, depending on the areas you want to address. The procedure involves making small incisions near your ears and hairline before lifting your skin.

Are there other types of facelifts?

Some of the other facelift options the practice offers are:


A mid-facelift is also called a cheek lift because it focuses on the middle of your face. Your provider targets the deepest layers of your face by repositioning the tissue and underlying muscle near your cheeks.

Lower facelift

A lower facelift targets frown lines, wrinkles, and saggy skin around the jawline, known as jowls. Your provider performs this procedure by making incisions around the front and back areas of your ears.

Mini facelift

A mini facelift is less invasive than a traditional facelift but addresses many of the same concerns. It requires smaller incisions, which results in a shorter recovery time.
