Improvements From a Facelift

A facelift is most often performed on men and women over the age of 40. When performed by Dr. Calobrace or Dr. Quintero, the procedure creates results that appear natural. It can help you look 5 to 10 years younger by:

  • Lifting sagging skin on the face and neck
  • Tightening lax muscles of the face and neck
  • Defining the jawline and neck
  • Reducing a double-chin

What’s the Difference Between a Facelift and a Neck Lift?

Facelift and neck lift surgery are facial rejuvenation procedures that are often performed together. Facelifts rejuvenate the lower 2/3 of the face. Neck lifts continue the rejuvenation down to the collarbones, tightening lax, crepey neck skin and repairing vertical neck bands.

How Much Does a Facelift Cost in Louisville & Lexington, KY?

The cost for a facelift depends on many factors, including technique and the complexity of the procedure. At CaloAesthetics® Plastic Surgery Center in Kentucky, average facelift prices range as follows:

  • Mini facelift: $15,000 to $18,000
  • Lower facelift: $15,000 and $21,000
  • Facelift: $17,000 to $24,000

During your surgical consultation, Dr. Calobrace or Dr. Quintero will perform a full assessment of your face and determine the best surgical approach to help you achieve your goals. He will provide a customized estimate for your procedure at that time. We offer several financing options for our patients to set up affordable monthly payments.

Commonly Combined Procedures

For an even greater facial rejuvenation, you may choose to combine a facelift with other procedures such as eyelid surgery or a brow lift. We also offer non-surgical skin tightening treatments if you are not ready for surgery or want to enhance your facelift results.

About Facelift Surgery

Depending on the degree of correction required, your surgeon may perform your facelift while you are under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Once you are anesthetized, your surgeon begins by making incisions around your ears and behind your hairline. Once healed, these incisions create very discreet scars that remain almost completely hidden by your natural hair growth.

After making the incision, your surgeon repositions the underlying muscle of your lower face and neck, surgically tightening these tissues and lifting them to reduce a drooping appearance. He may also remove extra skin for smooth, youthful-looking contours. Finally, your surgeon closes your incisions with sutures. Facelift surgery typically lasts between 3 and 5 hours.

What To Expect During Recovery

Once the procedure is complete, you should expect temporary swelling, numbness, bruising, and tenderness of the skin. Individual experiences may vary.

Return To Work

You should be ready to return to work in 10 to 14 days, with more strenuous activities limited for a month or more.

Other Things To Know

Bruising may last 2 to 3 weeks. Exposure to the sun must be limited for the first several months. While no surgery can stop the aging process, a facelift may provide improvements that last 5 to 10 years.


The risks involved in facelift surgery include damage to the nerves that control facial muscles and sensation, poor healing, excessive scarring, and asymmetry to the face or hairline.

Often Asked

How old do I need to be to have a facelift?

Because everyone ages at a different rate, there are no official guidelines dictating how old someone must be to have a facelift. Some people are ready for the surgery in their 40s, while others can put it off until their 60s or beyond. Instead, Dr. Calobrace or Dr. Quintero evaluates your face as a whole, assessing the quality of your skin and muscles to determine whether a facelift is warranted. He also considers a prospective patient’s overall health, especially if he or she is older. Patients should be healthy enough to undergo anesthesia safely and care for themselves after surgery.

How much younger do you look after a facelift?

Our facelift patients typically look 5 to 10 years younger than before surgery, depending on their age at the time of surgery, skin quality, and individual factors.

Will my results look natural?

Dr. Calobrace and Dr. Quintero use advanced facelift techniques that reposition the underlying facial structures instead of just tightening the skin. Patients look like themselves but younger and refreshed—not tight or “windswept.”

Will my scars be noticeable?

Incisions are concealed within the hairline or natural creases of the face where they do not draw attention.

How long can I expect my results to last?

Although the aging process continues, the results of facelift surgery can be very long-lasting, especially if you take proper care of your skin after surgery. This includes avoiding smoking and keeping your skin well protected from the sun. You can expect to enjoy the results of your facelift for about a decade, although this timeframe varies between individuals. However, since facelift surgery temporarily “freezes” the aging process, you may continue to look younger than your peers indefinitely. Some people choose to undergo an additional facelift later on, but it’s not required. Your surgeon can help you better understand how to maintain your results.

Will a facelift address all the wrinkles on my face?

Facelift surgery is especially useful for treating wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, including marionette lines and nasolabial folds. But because the surgery only focuses on the lower two-thirds of the face, wrinkles of the upper face, such as frown lines and crow’s feet, will likely remain. However, these concerns respond well to non-surgical treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, which can be easily incorporated into your facelift procedure for complete rejuvenation. For more severe wrinkles and laxity of the upper face, eyelid surgery or a brow lift may be more appropriate.
