If you are considering a facelift procedure in Maryland, Dr. Schreiber is considered one of the best plastic surgeons in Maryland for a facelift.  A facelift (rhytidectomy) has come a long way over the last decade.  We have all seen the facelift procedures of the past, where the skin is pulled so tight the skin around the eyes is being stretched.  Dr. Schreiber has an artistic approach to all of his surgical procedures and his before and after images are some of the best you will see.  The facelift procedure is designed to smooth and firm the skin, providing a fresh, youthful appearance.  Time is our enemy and it certainly can take it’s toll on the face due to the sun’s radiation, stress, gravity, and other factors causing the skin to sag and fit more loosely.  The face, neck and jawline are especially prone to the aging process.  Areas of the face and neck, in particular around the jaw line, are especially prone to the aging process.  Though these changes are gradual, wrinkles and other signs of aging can make individuals “feel older” than they really are.

Dr. Schreiber is conveniently located near Baltimore Maryland, you can call us today to schedule an appointment for a free consultation at 410-902-9800.

Reasons for Considering a Facelift:

  • Sagging skin, muscles, and fat in the face and neck.
  • Excess skin and fat on the neck.
  • Sagging jaw line.
  • Crease lines along the nose, mouth, and chin.
  • Facelift – General Procedure

Typically the facelift procedure involves making a small incision just inside the hairline, following the contour in front of the ear, and continuing under the earlobe to the backside of the ear and to the lower scalp.  From there we separate tissue from fat deposits, then the skin is pulled tighter, and if there is excess it is removed.  If Dr. Schreiber determines the neck line requires attention he will make an additional incision under the chin and the same procedure is followed.  Dr. Schreiber has incredible technique when it comes to stitching leaving minimal chance of scarring.  In some cases metal clips or staples may also be utilized at the hairline.

In most cases a facelift will take several hours of surgery but it may extend further in the event other cosmetic procedures are performed at the same time.  There are several different types of facelift procedures that can be performed you can discuss these options with Dr. Schreiber to determine which is best suited for you.

Dr. Schreiber performs facelift procedures at Northwest Hospital in Randallstown, Maryland and at the SurgiCenter of Baltimore in Owings Mills, Maryland. Both of these facilities are easily accessible from Towson, Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Pikesville, Ruxton, Lutherville, Howard County, Annapolis, and Washington D.C.

Recovery Process for Facelift

Immediately after surgery, the face is fitted with bandages in order to decrease the recovery time and to reduce swelling. Generally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing and recovery process. Northwest hospital offers an overnight stay for a very affordable rate to help you with the immediate recovery. The stitches, clips or staples are normally removed within a week. Patients sometimes report some minor pain associated with surgery. Any discomfort can be treated effectively with oral medication. While complications are rare, patients can minimize potential problems by carefully following the directions given after the procedure.
