Face Lift (Rhytidectomy)

Face Lift in South Florida

Unlike centuries-old works of art, your face is not “set in stone.” As time passes, the subtle, slow effects of time may gradually hide the youth and energy of your features. Sun damage and the natural aging process change the quality of your skin, while gravity and weight fluctuations conspire to loosen the soft tissues of your face, adding years to your appearance. By choosing a face lift from South Florida plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Cooper, you can restore a more rested and youthful look.

Face lift procedures are designed to give a smoother, firmer look to your face by gently re-draping the loose muscles and soft tissues that cause your facial skin to wrinkle and sag. Based on your facial form, Dr. Cooper will choose a technique that will address the areas of sagging muscle and skin that most significantly affect your look, in an effort to create the most natural result from your facial rejuvenation procedure.

To learn more about having a face lift in South Florida, request a complimentary consultation with Dr. Cooper or call (772) 286-9000 to schedule an appointment. Along with his highly trained staff, Dr. Cooper looks forward to answering your questions and providing more details about your procedure options.

Is This Procedure Right for Me?

A face lift is most effective for South Florida men and women who are experiencing evident characteristics of age and stress and would like to:

  • Tighten loose, sagging facial muscles
  • Reduce the deep facial creases around the nose and mouth
  • Reshape sagging areas of soft tissue and fat, especially at the lower cheeks, jaw line and neck
  • Minimize the appearance of hollow areas below the cheekbones
  • Erase smaller “static” wrinkles around the face and neck

For less extensive rejuvenation, Dr. Cooper offers both the Minimally-Invasive Malar (MIM) facelift, and Laser-Assisted submental liposuction for the neck. If you are unsure which approach would be most appropriate for you, Dr. Cooper will be happy to explain the advantages of each and provide you with his professional recommendation.

Your South Florida Face Lift Procedure

Dr. Cooper has extensive experience helping both men and women restore and refresh their look through his signature face lift procedures. As a surgeon who has performed thousands of face lifts for patients from all over the country, he intimately understands how to craft results that look naturally appealing and appropriate for your face, while at the same time maintaining the integrity of your unique facial structure.

This facial cosmetic surgery procedure in South Florida begins with an incision near the ear, usually just behind the hairline. Through the incision Dr. Cooper will gently realign your facial muscles and, if necessary, adjust and elevate the natural fatty areas in the cheeks and remove any excess skin. Your tissues will be secured in their new, more complimentary position with a series of tiny stitches along the original incision.

Dr. Cooper prioritizes your safety above all else. He utilizes some of today’s most sophisticated monitoring techniques and contemporary surgical approaches in order to minimize tissue damage and ensure precise, aesthetically pleasing results in a safe surgical environment.

Facelift Recovery

After recovering from your anesthesia in our Water’s Edge Surgery Center’s Post Anesthesia Care Unit, you, will be escorted to your accommodations at the Pavilion Resort. Dr. Cooper has designed the Pavilion Resort to provide high levels of comfort and postsurgical care so that you can be confident that you will enjoy top-quality results from your procedure. The Pavilion Resort staff members have received special training to meet the needs of cosmetic surgery patients and are available to address any concerns or verify that your recovery is progressing well.

Typically, after any facial cosmetic surgery in South Florida you will experience some facial swelling as your body adjusts to your new look over the days immediately following surgery. Some patients will also experience some numbness that will usually fade along with the swelling, or disappear more gradually over the following months. Dr. Cooper will prescribe pain medication; however, many patients find over-the-counter pain medications are sufficient to ease any discomfort. While some patients will choose to recover at home, many of Dr. Cooper’s patients have found that the Pavilion Resort’s atmosphere and spa services help encourage their good health and extended relaxation during the most important stages of recovery. Our highly trained and dedicated staff also help promote your peace of mind by addressing any questions or concerns you may have. Back to Top
