What is a Facelift?
When you need to repair wrinkled skin of the face and neck that is drooping and sagging, a facelift with Dr. Koger can be done either as a standalone procedure or in conjunction with a nose job, brow lift or eyelid surgery. By removing and “lifting” fatty tissue that is lodged just underneath the top layer of your skin, Dr. Koger can help you address sagging or wrinkled skin that occurs naturally as you get older.
The Best Candidates for Facelift
The best candidates for a facelift are those patients who want to repair those visible signs of aging so that they can have a more refreshed and less tired look. If you have fat deposits and folds of excess skin that appear around your neck, deep creases that have formed between the mouth and the nose or a jowly and slack jawline, then a facelift with Dr. Koger can help you erase these signs of aging. In general, individuals in the age range of 40-60 are ideal candidates for a facelift, but Dr. Koger has also had exceptional results for some patients in their 70s and 80s. It’s damaged skin and excess fat that make you look older and less youthful. By eliminating these issues with a facelift, Dr. Koger can restore years to your appearance.

Preparing for Your Facelift Surgery
During your consultation, Dr. Koger will discuss all of the steps necessary in preparing for your facelift surgery. You can count on his amazing staff to make sure that you are totally comfortable every step of the way. For Dr. Koger, the facelift procedure, which he taught as a faculty member at Duke University Medical School, is one of the most rewarding procedures to perform. In just a few hours he can transform a patient’s appearance to a more youthful and beautiful self. Would you like to look more youthful and beautiful? Aging of the face is inevitable. But a facelift with Dr. Koger will approach these aging issues in a delicate fashion, addressing sagging skin, volume restoration and skin care all at once.
The Facelift Procedure
Dr. Koger’s approach to the facelift procedure begins with analyzing where volume has been lost and where gravity has caused pulling or sagging of the skin. Dr. Koger is also a strong proponent of excellent skin care in combination with surgery to treat the effects of aging on the face. Dr. Koger can correct and revitalize the aging face by replacing volume and gently pulling specific areas. During your procedure, you will usually be under general anesthesia. Dr. Koger makes incisions above the hairline at the temple, and if the neck requires attention, under the chin as well. Separating the skin from the fat and the muscle below, Dr. Koger then removes excess fat. The underlying membrane and muscle are tightened, and Dr. Koger sutures.

After Your Facelift Surgery
You will typically have a small tube under the skin behind your ear for the first 24 hours after your facelift surgery. Even though most patients experience very little pain after surgery, Dr. Koger will still prescribe medication to address any possible postoperative discomfort, and a certain degree of swelling and bruising is unavoidable. Dr. Koger may instruct you to use cold compresses to keep swelling to a minimum, and if a dressing has been applied, it will be removed within one or two days. Dr. Koger and his fantastic staff will also instruct you on how to keep your head elevated when lying down following your procedure. You will need to avoid as much activity as possible and should report any undue discomfort.
Getting Back to Normal Following Facelift Surgery
All sutures and staples are usually removed within five to 10 days following surgery. Surgeons generally recommend that patients avoid vigorous activity for a few weeks after their surgery. Patients should prearrange for post-surgery support from family and friends. Follow-up care is vital for the facelift procedure to monitor healing. Dr. Koger will want to see you one day, one week and one month after surgery to follow up on your progress and make sure that you are successfully getting back to normal.
