Whether or not you feel your age, you might not want to look it. We all want to appear young and vibrant, but no one wants to look "worked-on" in the process. If this concern is holding you back from considering a facelift, choose Chicago area plastic surgeon Dr. Sandeep Jejurikar and rest assured that your facial enhancement can look completely natural.
To learn more about a face lift in Chicago, you can request a free cosmetic consultation online or call Dr. Jejurikar's office at (630) 960-0023 in Downers Grove or (847) 755-1000 in Hoffman Estates.
A face lift is a procedure that can treat many of the signs of aging such as loose or sagging skin, wrinkles, creases, loss of muscle tone, and displaced fat. However, there are some conditions that a face lift cannot correct, such as a visibly aged eye area or drooping brows. For these conditions, you might want to consider eyelid surgery or a brow lift. You can discuss the possibility of paired procedures with Dr. Jejurikar during your consultation.
If you're not ready for surgery, you may want to try some of the non-surgical procedures that Dr. Jejurikar performs. For example, BOTOX® Cosmetic, injectable fillers, and chemical peels can all provide distinct (although temporary) improvement. In fact, many face lift patients initially choose some of these non-surgical treatments before committing to a surgical procedure.
The Facelift Procedure
Dr. Jejurikar has the skill and experience to personalize a procedure to fit your specific needs. Depending upon the amount of correction you'd like and the areas that trouble you the most, there are several incision locations that he may use. To achieve maximum correction, he will probably use an incision that begins in the hairline at your temples and ends in the lower scalp. Another option is to use a smaller incision that begins lower on the temples. If you'd also like to correct sagging jowls, Dr. Jejurikar may use an incision that begins in front of the earlobe and ends in the lower scalp.
Whichever incision pattern Dr. Jejurikar chooses to use for your facelift, he will use it to reposition tissue, lift muscles, and remove excess skin. He may also remove excess fat deposits using liposuction in his Chicago area practice.

Recovery & Results
After your procedure you will need to follow Dr. Jejurikar's instructions for a complete recovery and best results. You will probably see some residual swelling for several weeks, but should be able to return to work within 7 to 10 days. In order to minimize the appearance of scars and to slow further aging, it is essential to always wear sunscreen.
When you are fully recovered, you will see a younger-looking face with smoother, tighter skin. You'll still look like yourself, only naturally refreshed and more vibrant.
