Facelift procedure FAQs with Bethesda's Dr. Roger J. Oldham, Plastic Surgeon


For more than two decades, Dr. Roger J. Oldham, board certified cosmetic surgeon, has been caring for patients who are dissatisfied with the appearance of aging features of their face.  A number of procedures can serve patients with facial rejuvenation, including brow lift, blepharoplasty, neck lift, and Facelift . Among these, facelift surgery is perhaps the most effective in treating features of the entire face.  Where the neck lift procedure is effective in smoothing skin of the neck and blepharoplasty reshapes eyelids to revive facial expression, facelift has the potential of treating each of these, and more.

With facelift surgery, patients can find the solution they desire—a more youthful appearance through subtle but comprehensive lifting techniques. So how is facelift surgery performed?  Through an incision along the natural hairline, Dr. Oldham is able to shift the skin and remove excess.  This creates a more sleek appearance through the facial features, including a smoothed brow, more defined cheek bones, and rejuvenated eyes.  The incision is then closed using specialized plastic surgery techniques to minimize scarring, as seen in these patients’ before and after facelift surgery photos.

When you contact Dr. Oldham’s Bethesda plastic surgery practice to schedule your personal consultation, you will speak with our patient counselor, Janet. Janet has more than a decade of experience managing plastic surgery practices and can answer many of your questions about the procedure including length of surgery and recovery time. She can also provide you a facelift surgery price estimate.
