What is a facelift?
Also referred to as a rhytidectomy, a facelift is one of the most popular surgical procedures for addressing issues in the face. The patient’s current status is thoroughly assessed in order to curate a customized treatment plan that will achieve the desired outcome. As with any procedure, a facelift is designed to preserve a patient’s natural beauty while inducing a powerful revitalization effect.
What issues can a facelift address?
Facelift procedures are designed to treat a myriad of issues in the face, including:
- Saggy skin
- Fine lines and creases
- Forehead lines
- Smile lines
- Submental fat (double chin)
- Rough skin tone
- Pigmentation issues (sun spots, age spots, hyperpigmentation)
Who is an ideal candidate for a Facelift procedure?

How to prepare for a facelift
Two weeks prior to undergoing a facelift in New Jersey, patients should stop smoking, drinking alcohol, or taking any blood thinners. Some examples of blood thinners include medications such as aspirin and ibuprofen, which may cause an excessive amount of bleeding during the procedure.
Patients must arrange a ride home for themselves prior to the procedure, as they will be unfit to drive under the influence of anesthesia. They should also do some shopping beforehand to ensure that their fridge is fully stocked. Meal prepping is another good idea.
What does the procedure entail?
The first step involves making an incision that goes along the hairline to the area behind the ears. These incisions then serve as an entry point by which Dr. Wise can adjust the positioning of facial tissue and address certain aesthetic concerns. This can entail sculpting and modifying features such as the cheeks and jawline, raising the skin to a better position, and smoothing out lines and wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes.
A facelift procedure with Dr. Wise can take as many as 10 years off of the face, leaving patients looking smoother and more rejuvenated than they have in years. With Dr. Wise’s unique approach, the patient’s skin, underlying musculature, and fat are all addressed with keen attention to detail, leaving the patient looking their best.
Facelift Recovery Timeline
Day of surgery – Immediately following the surgery, patients will have bandages wrapped around their face and neck, which must stay on for the first 24 hours. Prescription medications can help mitigate any pain. Swelling, bruising, and tenderness are all normal and should be expected. These side effects will fade away over the coming days.
The first few days following the procedure – During this time, patients must prioritize rest and relaxation. Following a healthy diet is also vital. Swelling will be at its highest point, but it will gradually dissipate.
First week post-op – By this point, any signs of bruising, swelling, and numbness will be on a decline. However, patients can use a cold compress if they wish. After the first week, patients typically feel great about their appearance and can wear makeup to hide any discoloration that may still be present.
Ten days to three weeks following the surgery – Most patients are able to get back to work around this time. That said, all strenuous activity (exercise, heavy lifting, etc) must be avoided until the six-week mark. Any existing swelling will be quite unnoticeable to onlookers.
Several months post-op – Patients will be able to get back to doing the things they love without any hindrances. Patients are recommended to use moisturizer and sunscreen in order to protect their skin in the long term.

How much does a facelift cost in NJ?
As with any surgical procedure, the fees associated with a facelift in NJ depend on several factors. Some of these include the extent of work performed and whether or not any complementary treatments were performed at the same time.
While a facelift might seem costly, the fact is that it is much cheaper than the alternatives. Some practices tout non-surgical procedures as the lightest on the wallet, but this view fails to take into account the constant upkeep that those treatments require.
Some things that factor into the price include:
- Surgeon’s fees – Choosing an experienced and skilled surgeon is vital. While their services might be more expensive, surgery is a serious matter. Patients who choose Dr. Wise are receiving some of the safest and most effective care available.
- The complexity of the surgery – Generally speaking, more complex surgeries will cost more than a more straightforward procedure.
- Anesthesia – Anesthesia plays a role in the cost of any procedure. Dr. Wise will go over all of the costs associated with anesthesia during the private consultation.
- Lab testing – It is often the case that patients need to undergo lab testing prior to the procedure to determine their candidacy. Performing these tests is an important safeguard against any potential complications that may arise during the procedure.
- Post-surgical costs – Following the operation, patients will be fitted with post-surgical garments. There are also prescription medications and follow-up visits that patients will need to pay for. More information regarding these fees will be provided during the private consultation.
