Like the name implies, a weekend facelift is a procedure that only takes around 48 hours to recover from. This makes it the ideal facelift procedure for people who require a minimal amount of lift and do not wish to commit to longer surgical times and recovery periods. A weekend facelift is a great option for people who have minor signs of aging such as loose neck skin or jowls, but do not have the time or need for a more invasive full facelift procedure.
Weekend Facelift Process
The process for a weekend facelift can be surprisingly fast. Using only local anesthesia, Dr. Hamrah will make a small incision just behind your earlobe. Through this incision, Dr. Hamrah will tighten the skin in your neck, eliminating jowls and giving you a noticeably more youthful appearance. Due to the small incisions, the procedure takes only about one hour and, as stated above, recovery takes less than two days.
A weekend facelift is best for people who are just beginning to experience the unpleasant signs of aging. During your initial consultation with Dr. Hamrah, your skin will be assessed, your concerns listened to, and the procedure best suited to meet your needs determined.
