Facelift Q & A

What is a facelift?

A facelift is a procedure to address sagging facial skin that develops as you age. When you get older, your body stops producing the amount of collagen it did when you were younger. Collagen is an essential protein of healthy skin. A loss of collagen leads to skin that is less flexible, less firm, and older-looking.

Dr. Koch specializes in in-office facelift procedures that are less invasive than a traditional facelift. This treatment helps to refresh your appearance and the natural contours of your face without extensive surgery.

As a renowned expert in this type of minimally invasive facelift, Dr. Koch trains many physicians across the country in the in-office facelift technique.

What happens during an in-office facelift?

During an in-office facelift, Dr. Koch administers a local anesthesia to keep you relaxed and free of pain. He follows a surgical plan that he personalizes to your unique facial features and your aesthetic goals.

Traditionally, Dr. Koch focuses on correcting age-related skin flaws that affect your mid and lower face. This includes the laugh lines around your mouth and nose as well as the jowl area. He makes small incisions in front of your ear and removes excess tissue so he can elevate your facial skin. This produces a more youthful, fresh appearance to your complexion.

What are the benefits of an in-office facelift?

Because of Dr. Koch’s skill, your risk for noticeable scars is minimal. You can also expect to recover much faster and with fewer risks after an in-office facelift than you might with a traditional facelift procedure.

The results of your procedure will be immediately noticeable. Your skin will appear tighter and younger while still looking natural. As your incisions heal, your results will continue to improve.

Another benefit of an in-office facelift is that you might be able to put off or avoid the need for a traditional facelift and still get the aesthetic results you want.
