What is a Face Lift?
A facelift is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures on the market. It can be a great way to achieve a more youthful, refreshed, and rejuvenated look.
Patients who opt for the procedure are often trying to tighten loose, sagging skin in the lower section of the face or cheeks. It can also help to reduce the appearance of pesky wrinkles, fine lines, and folds in the skin. A facelift can be performed in different ways depending on your needs, such as the extent of correction desired and the natural folds in your face. Dr. Troiano always works carefully in surgery to ensure any scars will be nearly invisible once fully healed. Her goal is to give you the best facelift Delray Beach can offer.
What Is the Difference Between a Facelift, Mini Facelift, and Thread Lift?
Based on the needs of each patient determined during consultation, different facelift options will be provided. Achieving our patient’s goals is the utmost priority, therefore deciphering the best treatment to match and exceed these goals is determined on an individual basis. Each can target or deliver slightly different results, all with the same outcome of helping you look and feel your very best.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Troiano at her luxurious facility in West Palm Beach, you can discuss your concerns, what improvements you’d like to see, and any relevant medical history or lifestyle influences. You can achieve many things with a facelift procedure, but the traditional method may not be best for everyone. If not, you can consider other options, such as:
Mini Facelift. The primary difference between a full facelift and mini facelift is the extent of correction and treatment required. For patients who are more mature or have more significant improvements they want to see, a full facelift may be ideal.
However, for patients that want to brighten or revive a small portion of their face, a mini facelift may be a better solution. The mini facelift typically focuses on the lower area, rather than the cheek or eye area. Incisions are smaller but the duration of results remains the same.
Threadlift. Rather than a plastic surgeon physically pulling the skin taut to achieve the facelift result, a Threadlift procedure uses temporary or dissolvable sutures to produce a subtle naturally visible “lift”. This is especially effective in the mid-face or eyebrow area.
What Is the Best Facelift Procedure?
Ultimately, the best facelift procedure is whichever works best to help you achieve the final result that best compliments your aesthetic goals and overall desires.
Feeling and looking more youthful can boost confidence, improve quality of life, and improve self-esteem.

What Happens during a Face Lift?
The technique Dr. Troiano uses to deliver a facelift may vary slightly depending on each patient’s individual needs and concerns. She will discuss the procedure with you in-depth during your consultations to ensure you fully understand what to expect.
During the facelift, you will be placed under general anesthesia and incisions will be made along the natural folds of your hairline, to keep them as hidden as possible. The skin will be redraped, trimmed, and shaped as necessary to deliver the final results, without looking overdone.
Once complete, the incisions are closed and your wounds will be dressed. Dr. Troiano will ensure you have detailed at-home care instructions to follow during recovery. Your first post operative check will be at home so that Dr. Troiano can check on your healing and review the care instructions again to ensure optimal recovery.

When should I get a Face Lift?
A facelift is typically recommended for patients who are showing moderate to significant signs of aging, such as wrinkles or loose skin in the face. For many patients, the ideal age is beginning in the mid-forties, when drooping, sagging, and changes in facial muscle and structure can start to become apparent.
Is a face lift painful?
Dr. Troiano ensures that all of her West Palm Beach facelift patients have a comfortable experience during their time with us. Our surgical procedures are most commonly performed under general anesthesia to ensure patients are asleep during surgery. The recovery may be slightly uncomfortable, as patients will experience some swelling, bruising, or pain in the first few days after their surgery.
Most patients do not use narcotic pain medication. As a matter-of-fact, acetaminophen and ibuprofen are preferred as these are truly pain killers as opposed to narcotic pain medication.
How much does a face lift cost?
The cost of a facelift will vary for patients based on the extent of treatment, techniques used, general care, and more. You can discuss all of this, as well as financing or payment options, during your initial consultation at Troiano Facial Plastics in West Palm Beach.
