Facelift in Chapel Hill

Facelift Surgery in Chapel Hill, NC with H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery


We often hear about botched facelifts, but those are the rare ones. Every day, countless women and men get seamless facelifts. They blend into the crowd or appear in the media, and you never see the skilled facelift surgeon behind their rejuvenated appearance.

These people look vibrant, energetic, and youthful for their age. Their secret? Choosing the right surgeon. With our experienced doctors, your facelift will look naturally perfect, subtly dramatic.

Remember your reflection from 10 or 15 years ago. That’s how you’ll appear after a facelift at H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery. Before making a decision, try a facelift with Vectra 3D imaging. Post-surgery, anticipate a younger look with tighter skin, fewer lines, wrinkles, and less sagging. Facelifts can be done with brow or eyelid surgery for more comprehensive results.

What Can I Expect During A Facelift?

We offer the popular MACS Lift, a quick 90-minute procedure with a recovery of a week or less, in addition to full facelifts. This method avoids the behind-ear incision, leaving no scar. A Platysmaplasty is often performed for neck enhancement, tightening and removing neck bands. It can accompany both full facelifts and MACS Lifts.

Revision facelifts may be more complex due to earlier scars. We will thoroughly address your questions, making sure you’re prepared and confident before, during, and after the surgery.

What Can I Expect During a MACS Lift in Chapel Hill, NC?

Besides a full face lift, we offer our extremely popular MACS Lift procedure, which only takes 90 minutes and has a typical recovery of one week or less. There is no incision behind the ear, which is a fantastic improvement over traditional facelifts, as it leaves no visible scar. To improve the appearance of the neck along with the facelift, a procedure called Platysmaplasty is often performed. This procedure tightens and removes the “turkey-gobbler” bands on the neck. This “neck lifting” procedure is frequently combined with a full face lift, but can also be performed along with a MACS Lift.

If you are receiving a “revision face lift” to correct a previous facelift, the procedure is sometimes more complex because there may be abnormal scarring from the first operation. We will answer all of your questions and tell you exactly what you can expect before, during, and after your facelift so that there are no surprises. Whether you are getting a full face lift, a MACS lift, or a revision face lift, you will be able to show up for your surgery feeling prepared and confident.

Depending on the type of facelift procedure you choose, the recovery time will vary from 1-2 weeks. There will be some bruising and swelling after a facelift, but these symptoms will fade as your face and neck heal. Pain and discomfort can be easily controlled with medication during your recovery period. Your head will likely be bandaged after the procedure, and you will need to keep your head elevated for the first few days. You should also avoid strenuous activities for about two weeks. Of course, we will monitor your progress and answer any questions you have during your recovery period.

The longevity of a facelift is typically 7-9 years.
