Facelift Procedure Page

The physical effects of aging can completely change the way we look and feel. The face and neck can reveal more than we would like to share about ourselves, with loosening and sagging skin. There are many different ways to address early subtle changes such as dermal fillers and laser treatments. However, for those with more advanced signs of aging in the face and neck, a surgical procedure will be required. Dr. Madnani offers customized treatment plans for those clients seeking a facelift specialist.

How is a facelift procedure performed?

Dr. Madnani performs a dual layered facelift surgery without general anesthesia. This method combines lifting and tightening of the muscles of the face and neck and re-draping excess skin resulting in a natural and un-operated appearance. This dual layer lift begins with incisions carefully marked in the hairline within the natural creases of the ear to reduce any visible signs afterwards.

Next, the underlying muscle tissues are lifted and all specified contouring is addressed. Excess skin remaining around the neck and face is carefully removed and fine sutures are delicately placed. Since we rarely age in only one area, Dr. Madnani offers a series of complimentary procedures that can be combined for aesthetically optimal results such as liposuction of the neck and jawline, volumizing with a fat transfer procedure, surgical neck and eyelid rejuvenation and laser skin resurfacing.

Facelift addresses:

  • Laugh lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Neck creases
  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • Jowls

Recovery and Results

After your facelift surgery, there will be some swelling and bruising that should subside within about 5 to 7 days following your procedure. As you heal it is important that you limit any intense levels of activities and perform the aftercare as explained. Recovery times can vary depending on your level of facelift. Results from the facelift are ready to be revealed after seven to ten days on average. Dr. Madnani will discuss your customized treatment plan and expected recovery and results with you during your consultation.

Dr Madnani is the Best. He knows exactly how much I needed and what areas needed extra attention. He knows how to freeze and tells exactly what to expect and he is always so point on as this is not my first experience with facial laser treatments. After 1 week, I look good and he tells me it will only get better and better. He told me this with the facial surgery and he was so right!
Wonderful! Dr. Madnani explained every procedure with me first. His serene manner always assures me that I am in the best of hands. The procedure had minimal pain the first night and then started to heal immediately. It was definitely worth it! The results are fantastic!
Excellent care. Very careful follow up after procedure. Results very natural.
This was the most wonderful decision and experience I could have had from the consultation to the procedure, which included the face and neck lift, upper and lower eyes and injecting fat… Dr Madnani spent a lot of time explaining everything to be done and to be expected afterwards. I hardly felt anything during the procedure and was fast asleep during most of it… In two weeks I was able to travel out of state… Friends and family, especially my husband could not get over the results! I would highly recommend Dr Madnani to anyone contemplating any or all of ...
I had a face and eye lift… I found the whole experience to be amazing. Thanks to Dr Madnani and his staff, they were caring, professional and thorough… I look great! The experience is everything I had hoped it would be! Thank you Dr Madnani for lifting my face and my spirits!


How long is the procedure?
Procedure times vary from one hour to three hours depending on exactly what type of facelift is done, and whether other procedures are being done at the same time.
I don’t want to be put to sleep for the procedure, can it still be done?
Yes, I perform all my facelifts without general anesthesia. This results in a quicker recovery and less risks for my patients.
What type of facelifts do you do?
I perform a 2 layer facelift where I lift and tighten the deeper SMAS/muscle layer as well as the overlying skin layer. There are multiple approaches to this, from a mini lift approach to a lower facelift approach and other procedures such as a neck lift is usually performed at the same time.
What’s the typical recovery time?
I perform procedures under local anesthesia with oral medications to relax you, so recovery time for my procedures are 7-10 days vs. longer for patients going under general anesthesia. What this means is that my patients are ‘restaurant ready’ by this time, where they can be out and about but are still in the healing phase, with most of the healing able to be camouflaged.
Do I need a medical clearance prior to the procedure?
As the procedure is performed under local anesthesia with oral medications to relax you, medical clearance or blood work is rarely required unless determined by your medical history.
Are the pictures on your website all your patients?
Yes, all the pictures are my patients and none of them have been retouched.
Can I speak to your past patients about their experience?
Yes, we have many past patients who have volunteered to speak to potential patients about the procedures. We change this up regularly so we stay current. Dr Madnani also has many reviews online from past patients.
Do you accept financing?
Yes we do offer financing options. There is information on the website for patients to access this.
Do you suggest any supplements to help healing after the procedure?
I suggest my patients take Arnica montana, bromolean and vitamin C before and after the procedure to help with swelling, bruising and healing. I also suggest my patients use a silicone based scar gel over the incisions, www.purehealplus.com is one option that I have developed, or patients can purchase something over the counter.
Do you use staples or drains?
I do not use staples and I very rarely use drains during my procedures.
I am afraid that I am going to look fake after surgery?
That is a common fear and one that we hear a lot. Dr Madnani take great pride in his work looking natural and unoperated, so you can reassure yourself that this is not something that happens in Dr Madnani’s hands.
Does Dr Madnani work on other parts of the body?
No, Dr Madnani is a Facial Plastic Surgeon who specializes only in facial rejuvenation procedures and has performed thousands of them.
How long does a facelift last?
In general, a facelift should last as long as you do. What I mean by that is that the procedure does not stop the aging process, just resets the clock, so you appear about 8-10 years younger and age going forward.
