OUR TECH

Facelift in Vancouver, BC

Facelift surgery is considered the pinnacle of anti-aging and facial rejuvenation procedures for the face and neck, among both surgical or non-surgical options. This surgery aims to target the most telltale signs of aging, such as lax skin, loss of volume, and the dropping of fat deposits in the face. A facelift will help by reducing the overall appearance of these signs, resulting in a more refreshed look.

Dr. Buonassisi provides his facelift patients with natural results that offer a refreshed and youthful look, specializing in techniques like the Deep Plane Facelift and Mini Lift surgeries. He will analyze your face from the skin and muscles, all the way down to the fat and bones, allowing us to tailor your surgery and treatment plan to your specific needs.

BENEFITS

The Benefits of Facelift Surgery

A facelift is a long-term investment in how you look and feel, and depends on a number of factors to determine if this is the ideal way forward. If you desire longer-lasting facial rejuvenation results, and are finding that fillers or lasers aren’t giving you the same natural results you used to see, you may be ready for a more extensive procedure that can offer the following results:

  • Lift skin of the mid and lower face
  • Refreshes the look of your face and provides a youthful appearance
  • Reduces creases around the mouth and nose (also called naso labial folds and marionette lines)
  • Lift skin and pockets of fat along the jowl and chin area
  • Reduce neck laxity

Frequently Asked Questions

How is facelift surgery performed?
+
-

This depends on which technique is required to achieve the desired Facelift type. Facelifts use two main techniques: 1) A SMAS Facelift targets the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS), which is a layer of tissue that lies deep beneath the skin. Focusing on the lower two-thirds of the face, a SMAS facelift addresses issues like sagging skin, jowls, excess fat, hollowed cheeks, and loose skin around the chin. A SMAS facelift trims and removes fat and excess skin and tightens the muscles of the lower face. 2) A Deep Plane Facelift targets the the area that lies between the SMAS and the deeper layer of facial muscles. With a deep plane facelift, Dr. Buonassisi moves only the layer under the muscle and leaves the skin attached to the muscle. Keeping the muscle attached to the skin avoids skin pulling or tightness so you’ll have tension-free, natural-looking results.

Who is a candidate for facelift surgery?
+
-

A candidate for Facelift surgery will likely notice moderate-to-pronounced signs of aging, such as very lax skin, loss of volume, and fat deposits that have fallen or disappeared. There is no one-size-fits-all candidate for Facelift, and our patient care managers can help determine your candidacy in a complimentary pre-assessment. They can answer any questions you have, and conduct a photo review with Dr. Buonassisi to confirm which procedures are ideal for your goals. Dr. Buonassisi may often refer you to see one of our medical aestheticians for non-surgical treatments, as this option may yield more beneficial results for your individual goals.

How long does it take to recover from facelift surgery?
+
-

Facelift surgeries typically have a downtime of 2-3 weeks, but swelling can last about 3-4 weeks. The incisions are meticulously placed in natural crevices and are nearly imperceivable when fully healed. During recovery, scars and redness are easy to hide with makeup until they begin to fade. The only Facelift procedure that differs from the above is the Mini Lift, which often sees less swelling and bruising and the downtime is typically just one week.

All my expectations were exceeded and have no regrets with my decision to proceed. My procedure was an exciting and rewarding experience .

I have had a number of different procedures from this clinic and each one has been exactly what I was hoping for. Dr. Buonassisi in particular is fabulous. He is honest, direct, careful and beyond knowledgeable. I can't express how positively going to this clinic has changed my life.

There are places that should be an example to others in its business niche. 8 West Surgery clinic has its stars for a reason. Impeccable customer service: easy to reach and exceptionally professional. Dr. BUONASSISI voted best for a reason. You know you are in great hands once you meet him.

Better than the face I was born with! After much research, I chose Dr. B because he specializes in facial surgery. Five months post surgery, I can say that I am thrilled with the results! If you are thinking about a facelift, I highly recommend you have a consultation with Dr. B!
