Featured Image

Many people dream about a more youthful appearance and want to undergo facelift surgery, but their fear of pain stops them from going forward. They worry about what their face will feel like after facelift surgery. Most are surprised to learn that there is typically no severe pain after undergoing a facelift. Instead, patients often report a feeling deeply bruised due to the swelling that occurs. Many also say that their face feels heavy but not overly uncomfortable.

At Plastic Surgery in Vegas in Las Vegas, NV, we have two exceptional surgeons specializing in cosmetic surgeries. Dr. Terrence "Terry" Higgins performs procedures for the face, breast, and body, but he is particularly renowned for his body contouring work. Dr. Andrew G. Silver specializes in surgery of the face including facelifts, neck lifts, eyelid surgery, facial implants, and fat transfer. Both surgeons perform facelifts for many satisfied patients in the Las Vegas, NV area.

The surgeons at Plastic Surgery Vegas offer facelift surgeries that smooth away wrinkles and tighten loose skin. They can focus their surgical skills on the wrinkles near your eyes, cheeks, forehead, mid-face region, the bottom section of your face, or your neck or jowls. Each facelift technique focuses on your goals and the degree of skin laxity that you suffer from. You can undergo a full facelift or only target sections of your face that need it the most.

Dr. Higgins and Dr. Silver can create a neutral look that gives you a completely refreshed appearance. Every patient’s needs are different so they will work diligently to address all your cosmetic goals.

What are the benefits of a facelift?

A facelift gives you wonderfully dramatic results that are long-lasting, unlike wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers which wear off over time.

With a surgical facelift you can enjoy:

  • Surgical treatment to multiple areas of the face and neck at one time

  • A substantial tightening of sagging and loose skin

  • Effectively smooth away even severe wrinkles

  • Jawline recontouring

  • Reduction in sagging jowls and double chin

  • Invisible scarring

  • Fully customizable
