For a More Youthful Appearance
Throughout the natural aging process, our skin loses its elasticity, and underlying tissues also tend to lose volume. This can cause deep lines, sagging and wrinkles on the face and neck. Facelift procedures are known for reversing these signs of aging by restoring the facial tissues to a more youthful position. While you may elect to have a facelift by itself, many patients in the Milwaukee area choose to have Dr. Bosbous perform a combination of different facial rejuvenation procedures at once, since the neck, the face, and the eyelids tend to age in concert with one another. Dr. Bosbous offers a variety of techniques that can address your facial aging concerns and help you achieve a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
Dr. Bosbous has a passion for delivering natural looking results for his patients in the Milwaukee area, and he takes pride in building trusting relationships while helping his patients achieve their cosmetic surgery goals. Dr. Bosbous brings a professional hand and a personal touch to every procedure he performs. With the help of a facelift, your outer appearance is sure to begin to reflect the way you feel on the inside.

Your Face and Neck Lift Procedure
Most face and neck lifts take 3-5 hours depending on the combination of procedures being performed. Incisions are often made within the hairlines or along the natural creases of your face to aid in concealing any postoperative scars you may have. Once these discreet incisions are made, the face and/or neck skin is lifted and the underlying tissue is modified to restore the area to a more youthful position and volume.
A mini facelift is an option in less extreme cases and requires fewer incisions. Dr. Bosbous will guide you in deciding which procedure(s) will best give you the final results you desire. Although the majority of facial rejuvenation surgeries are performed as outpatient procedures, overnight stays can be arranged depending on your individual needs.
