A facelift is a relatively simple procedure that can produce dramatic results and a fresh, natural look. The effects of a facelift are long-lasting.

Why Consider a Face Lift?
Men and women often consider facelift surgery to reverse some of the most common and noticeable effects of aging on the face, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sagging skin
- Neck bands
If you are beginning to notice that your facial features have become hidden underneath lines, wrinkles and sagging skin and you desire a younger, more invigorated appearance, face plastic surgery might be right for you.
How Much Does a Face Lift Cost?
The cost of facelift surgery in Houston varies depending on the surgeon and practice. Your total costs will include facility fees, the cost of anesthesia and your pre-op and post-op appointments. At Basu Plastic Surgery, we offer frequent special promotions for facelifts. We also offer a variety of plastic surgery financing options to make your procedure as affordable as possible.
Your Face Lift Options
Dr. Basu will discuss your concerns with you and explain the details of facelift plastic surgery. He will take the time to understand the outcome that you want. There are a number of options to consider, including whether or not another facial procedure should be performed at the same time. Dr. Basu will work with you to determine a surgical plan that best suits your needs to create the results that you hope for. Some procedures that may be combined with a facelift to maximize results include:
- Neck lift: For those with excess fat or skin in the neck area, a neck lift may be combined with a facelift for an overall improvement of the facial profile.
- Eyelid surgery: If sagging, excess or puffy skin around the eyes is a concern, eyelid surgery can complement a facelift to create a more energized and alert look.
- Double chin treatment: There are a variety of double chin treatment options that can be combined with face surgery to further reduce jowls and improve the chin and jawline contours.
Your Face Lift Procedure
During your facelift surgery, camouflaged incisions hidden in front of or behind the ear will be made in order to tighten any excess skin. The procedure also helps to strengthen and tighten the underlying foundation structures of the face. Dr. Basu takes great care to create the most natural-appearing results as possible. Careful placement of the incisions for face plastic surgery can result in virtually invisible scars that will fade over time.
How Is Face Lift Surgery Performed?
Experienced facial plastic surgeon Dr. Bob Basu discusses how facelift surgery is performed, and who may be a good candidate for the procedure.
Your Recovery & Results
Following your facelift procedure, Dr. Basu will provide detailed recovery instructions. You may be sent home with bandages to help to reduce swelling and bruising, but these symptoms typically diminish within the first week after surgery. Most people can expect to return to their normal activity level within the next few days, although it’s recommended that they refrain from very strenuous exercise or heavy lifting for 2 to 3 weeks post-op.
After recovery, your results should appear smooth, natural and refreshed. Many men and women often say that those in their social circles are unable to tell that they’ve even had facial plastic surgery.
