Facelift in Fredericksburg, VA

What Is a Facelift?

Plastic surgeons Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki provide a full spectrum of facial cosmetic surgeries in Fredericksburg, VA. A facelift is one of our most sought-after procedures at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg. This treatment concentrates on specific areas of the face to reduce drooping features and wrinkles to obtain a refreshed, firmer appearance. Based upon your unique concerns, a facelift can focus on the areas around the eyes, the mid-face area and cheeks, the bottom portion including the jowls, mouth, neck, and more for an all-encompassing youthful look. The facelift technique used depends on your desired outcome, skin condition, degree of skin laxity, age, lifestyle, and other factors. Some individuals want a full facelift while others may only be ready for a mid-facelift. Drs. Heppe, Bautista, and Aflaki are skilled surgeons who thoroughly understand the complex anatomy of facelift surgery. The overall goal is to create a natural appearance that's soft and beautiful.

How Is a Facelift Performed?

Regardless of your aesthetic concerns, there are numerous facelifts to consider. Some facelifts rejuvenate the upper portion of the face while others focus on the lower two-thirds. In addition, some techniques are slightly more invasive than others. It's very common for some individuals to have a brow lift or fillers and BOTOX® to complement their results. A few of the more common facelift methods include:

  • Full Facelift
    Considered the gold standard, the full facelift usually uses an incision near the hairline, extending down to the temple region and reaching the base of the ears. The underlying facial muscles are carefully pulled and tightened to produce a lifted outcome, which reduces excessive lines and wrinkles. The traditional facelift is reserved for patients who have signs of advanced aging. With this lift, several facial rejuvenation methods may be combined, including upper or lower blepharoplasty to enhance the eyes or neck reduction for the lower region.
  • Mini Facelift
    When undergoing a mini facelift, a tiny incision is made near the ears to elevate the skin, which helps the mouth and jawline. This process creates nice and subtle enhancements that look natural.
  • Mid-Facelift
    Incorporating a similar technique to the mini facelift, the mid-facelift (cheeks) addresses the hollow and lax areas around the cheekbones and the upper jaw. This lift works well for those who desire enhancement in the lower two-thirds of the face and improves the look of the jowls.
  • Lower Facelift
    This particular facelift addresses the neck region, chin, and in many cases, the jowls. Methods of a nonsurgical nature, such as laser skin tightening or KYBELLA®, can also be used for chin reduction to attain a younger-looking neck.

I did my research and I found Dr Heppe was one of Northern Virginia’s top plastic surgeons. When I met Dr Heppe and his staff, I was very happy on how friendly and knowledgeable they were. On the day of my procedure, which is done in the building, I was very much impressed with how the process was done. All my questions and concerns were answered. I am a registered nurse, and I am acutely aware of when infection control procedures are followed and not followed, I absolutely felt safe in this environment. I am now three months out from my surgery and I am very much pleased with the results. I did not have any postoperative complications nor any infection. I honestly can highly recommend Dr.Heppe. I had a brachioplasty done and it’s the first time in 30 years that I’ve worn sleeveless tops and dresses. I wish I had done this earlier! Thank you to Dr Heppe and his staff. I have sent friends to him and they are pleased as well. Connie W RN

Five Stars are Not enough for Dr. Aflaki. I did revision rhinoplasty and I cannot thank him enough for such an amazing job he has done. The best decision I made. He is simply the best, number one plastic surgeon.

I had a breast augmentation with Dr. Bautista and I am so happy that I chose him. I came into the office because one breast was larger than the other. Dr. Bautista examined me and told me what he was able to do which was stitch up the larger breast so gravity wouldn't pull it down so hard after surgery. Nearly 3 months later they are sitting evenly and I'm so happy. The nurses were great as well. I had other medical doctors and they ensured I got a doctor's note to approve the surgery as well as making sure they honor my latex allergy. Everyone was so nice and the process was just so welcoming and amazing. Highly recommend!
