The best facelift candidates will still have some elasticity to their skin, so most clients undergoing the procedure are between roughly 40 and 65. However, Dr. Gabriel has seen some good results for those that are both older and younger. Dr. Gabriel will conduct a thorough evaluation of your skin during your confidential Vancouver, WA facelift consultation.
What is the mini face lift?
In some clients, usually those in their 40’s, aging has only just begun to cause sagging, jowling and fatty deposits. These patients may be candidates for a less invasive procedure known as a mini facelift that comes with a shorter downtime.

Facelift — Frequently Asked Questions
How Long After A Facelift Can I Start Exercising?
Dr. Gabriel recommends waiting at least one month before resuming exercise. You should not attempt any vigorous exercise until give the go-ahead by Dr. Gabriel. Don’t attempt strenuous exercise at all in the early stages of healing, but just gentle walks to aid in circulation. Ease yourself back into your routine slowly.
How Long Does a Facelift Procedure Take to Complete?
Most standard facelift procedures take approximately three to four hours to complete, but a mini facelift may only take one to two hours. Each procedure is unique based on the technique being used and the changes to be made.
How Long Does it Take to Look Normal After a Facelift?
It can take up to two weeks for the initial swelling and bruising to diminish and the incisions begin to heal. You will likely feel more comfortable to resume light activities in your routine and be out in public after a few weeks of rest and recovery.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Even though a facelift can turn back the clock and make you look younger, it does not stop the aging process indefinitely. A full facelift will typically last for five to ten years, after which minor surgical corrections can be performed if desired.
