Reverse the Signs of Aging with a Personalized Facelift Surgery
At Jain Plastic Surgery in Columbus, GA, our doctors only perform one facelift surgery per day, allowing them to spend as much time as necessary during the procedure to provide natural, youthful-looking results. Dr. Ashish K. Jain and Dr. Tahira I. Prendergast work closely with each patient from the initial consultation through the recovery process to ensure that you have a smooth experience throughout your entire cosmetic surgery journey. Facelift surgery is often chosen over temporary nonsurgical treatments such as injectables and dermal fillers because it is a lasting solution to reverse the signs of aging.
What is a Facelift?
As we age, skin begins to lose its elasticity, causing facial muscles and skin to sag. The natural aging process can eventually produce fine lines and wrinkles, jowls, excess skin, and poor self-confidence. A facelift is a popular cosmetic procedure that can tighten skin and remove deep wrinkles on your face that can make you appear chronically tired and older than you actually are. During a facelift, your surgeon can also provide comprehensive enhancements to the lower face, mid-face, jawline, neck, and around the eyes to help you achieve a younger-looking appearance, virtually turning back the clock.
Good candidates for this procedure include patients who:
- Have sagging or excess skin around their face and neck
- Are in good overall health
- Do not smoke
- Have healthy skin and good bone structure
- Have healthy expectations
What to Expect during Your Consultation
During your initial visit, you will have the opportunity to meet with one of our consultation specialists and tour our state-of-the-art surgical facility. Having your procedure performed at our private on-site surgery center by a board-certified surgeon significantly reduces your risk of infection and allows us to provide personalized, discreet treatment.
The doctors at Jain Plastic Surgery make patient health and safety a priority and set aside entire days each week for pre-operative consultations and post-operative follow-ups to help with the recovery from a facial surgery. Once Dr. Jain or Dr. Prendergast perform a detailed examination to ensure that you are a good candidate for this procedure, they will take the time to answer any questions or concerns you may have to better prepare you for the procedure. We can also put you in touch with a former patient who has undergone the procedure at our facility to help you better understand what to expect throughout your procedure and recovery.
The Facelift Procedure
Once you arrive at our accredited outpatient surgery center, you will be taken to a private room where you will be settled and given general anesthesia for optimal comfort. Your doctor will then make discreet incisions in front of your ears and along the hairline and temples in order to reposition and tighten muscles and sagging skin. Your doctor will then smooth and remove any excess skin and carefully close the incisions to minimize scarring.

Depending on the complexity of the procedure, your surgery could take up to eight hours. Our doctors are very detailed in their approach and will take all the time necessary to ensure precise placement. Once complete, the doctor will apply bandages and compression garments to help control the swelling and promote quicker recovery.
Before being discharged, you will be carefully monitored for the first hour following surgery to ensure you are responding well. If there are no complications, you can be released to go home with a friend or family member. Following your post-operative instructions carefully and attending all necessary follow-up appointments will ensure you achieve optimal results.
