Facelift Surgery in Minneapolis

Also Serving St. Paul, Edina, Plymouth & Wayzata

After decades of successfully performing facial rejuvenation procedures, Dr. Harrington has an established reputation as one of the most skilled facelift surgeons in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Her caring manner, expert knowledge and unsurpassed surgical techniques allow her to produce excellent facial rejuvenation outcomes.

Facelift (rhytidectomy) is a permanent procedure designed to reduce the signs of facial aging. Dr. Harrington and her outstanding, all-female surgical team perform facelift to address a wide range of aesthetic concerns, including:

  • Sagging in the lower and midface
  • Disproportionate facial fatty tissue
  • Loss of muscle tone/hollow cheeks
  • Facial wrinkles and lines
  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • Low self-esteem

A facelift may also be combined with additional facial rejuvenation procedures, including eyelid surgery, brow lift / forehead lift, neck lift and Botox injections for an overall beautification and improvement of the facial profile.

How Do I Determine if Facelift Surgery Is Right for Me?

Although facelift may be performed on younger patients, the best candidates for this procedure are men and women who suffer from physical facial changes as a result of aging. A one-on-one consultation with Dr. Harrington is the first step toward determining whether this procedure is the right treatment option for you. During this visit, Dr. Harrington will examine your skin elasticity and bone structure and identify wrinkles and folds that need to be eliminated. With your best interest in mind, she and her facial rejuvenation team at Harrington Plastic Surgery will offer you the best treatment option based on your unique situation and your appearance-enhancing desires.

Facelift surgery involves small incisions that are carefully placed inside the hairline and around the curve of the ear. During the procedure, Dr. Harrington will reposition, redistribute and reshape facial contours, resulting in a more youthful and attractive appearance. Most Minneapolis facelift patients who undergo this facial rejuvenation procedure with Dr. Harrington appear up to 10 years younger following surgery.

Facelift Postoperative Care and Recovery

The process of recuperation from facelift varies from one patient to another, but patients should expect to recover within two to three weeks. Some swelling, bruising and discomfort are common and can be addressed during your postoperative care. Dr. Harrington is a compassionate, caring female surgeon who provides all of her patients with outstanding preoperative and postoperative services. She not only cares about your physical appearance, but she will go out of her way to make you feel emotionally happy and comfortable.

In fact, cosmetic surgery patients return to Dr. Harrington to undergo additional facial rejuvenation procedures because they trust her expertise and know that patient safety is her priority. Her superbly qualified team of caregivers is available for postoperative care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Like any surgical procedure, facelift surgery may lead to complications in some patients; such issues will be thoroughly covered during your consultation.
