For more than 25 years, Dr. Roger J. Oldham has been caring for patients through innovative and effective plastic surgery procedures such as breast lift, liposuction, rhinoplasty, and facial rejuvenation procedures including Facelift. Among patients with several aging facial features, such as the brow, eyes, and sagging skin, facelift surgery is the most comprehensive procedures. Dr. Oldham recommends and performs facelift surgery so frequently because it allows him to treat several affected areas, smoothing the entire surface of the face, and restoring those tired, aging, features to the glow of youth.
Facelift surgery is performed by making an incision behind the cartilage at the front of the ear and a second incision behind the natural folds of the ear. Through these openings, Dr. Oldham is able to carefully separate the skin from facial tissue and smooth the skin as it is redraped. This incision site is considered the most favorable because the natural hairline tends to camouflage the site post-operatively. Once the skin is smoothed, but before the incision is closed, Dr. Oldham carefully removes the excess skin responsible for sagging and deep wrinkling in the skin. Recovering from facelift surgery varies among patients, but typically ranges from 7-10 days. Most patients return to work in less than two weeks, and some earlier. See the very dramatic results on Dr. Oldham’s photo gallery website, featuring pictures of patients before and after facelift surgery with Dr. Oldham.
