What is a Facelift?
At Dr. Coley’s practice in Greensboro, the goal of a facelift, or rhytidectomy, is to reduce sagging and loose skin in the face and neck. This goal is accomplished by lifting or repositioning the skin and underlying tissues.
Modern techniques tighten the deeper layers of facial tissue as well as the skin, creating a natural look that usually subtracts 6 to 10+ years from an individual’s appearance.

How is Facelift Surgery Performed?
The ideal candidate for a facelift is someone who is seeking improvement for one or more of the following conditions:
- A neck with wrinkles, excess skin, and loss of the youthful neck contour
- Sagging and deep wrinkles in the cheek areas
- Loss of the normal jaw line and “jowls”
- Deep lines or folds between the nose and mouth
How is Facelift Surgery Performed?
When performing a facelift at his office in Greensboro, Dr. Coley usually places the incisions in the natural contour of the ear, extending around the earlobe and into the hairline. Excess skin is removed, and deeper tissues are altered to restore a more youthful contour. There may also be a small incision beneath the chin that allows access to fatty tissue in the jaw line and the cord-like structures in the neck.
What Should I Expect Before a Facelift?
As part of the consultation, Dr. Coley considers skin type, medical history, skin elasticity, and bone structure. Dr. Coley considers these factors, in addition to the patient’s goals, in personalizing each procedure. To achieve the most desirable effect, many patients decide to combine several cosmetic procedures. For example, eyelid surgery, facial liposuction, a forehead or brow lift, chin implant, cheek implants, or skin resurfacing are often performed along with a facelift. During the consultation, Dr. Coley will show before and after photos of patients on whom he has performed facelifts.
The discomfort following a facelift is usually minimal. Medications are prescribed to help the patient rest comfortably for the first few days after surgery. Bandages are removed in the office the day after surgery and reveal swelling and bruising, which may be more pronounced in some areas than others. The puffiness and discoloration peaks about 72 hours after surgery and gradually resolves within several weeks. After a few days, makeup can be used to conceal any discoloration. Stitches and staples are removed five to seven days after surgery. Certain activities are restricted after a facelift to protect healing tissues. However, most patients can resume most of their normal activities within two weeks.
Since the healing process is gradual, patients should expect to wait at least three to six months for the final results. Most patients enjoy a more youthful appearance and an increased self-confidence for many years.
