Candidates for Facelift
The women and men who visit Dr. Mukerji for a facelift are typically in their 40s to 60s, although people in their 70s and 80s choose this procedure, too. Ideal candidates are in good health, do not smoke, and want to address any combination of the following concerns:
- Deep folds and creases around the mouth (smile lines, marionette lines)
- A slack, jowly jawline
- Sagging facial tissues
- Fat under the chin and along the jawline
When performing a traditional facelift, Dr. Mukerji usually includes a neck lift to tighten lax skin and vertical banding.
By taking the time to get to know you and clearly understand your personal motivations for surgery, Dr. Mukerji can provide a rewarding experience. He reserves 30 minutes to an hour for your complimentary cosmetic consultation to ensure it is informative and unhurried. He reviews your medical history and carefully examines your areas of concern, facial structure, and skin elasticity. He asks you to describe the improvements you hope to attain and reviews your treatment options—including possible risks—and helps you understand your potential results.
If your cheeks are wrinkled and flattened, Dr. Mukerji may recommend an endoscopic mid-facelift instead of a facelift. Many patients benefit from a combination of both procedures. To rejuvenate the upper face, Dr. Mukerji may recommend either or both of the following procedures:
At the end of your consultation, you will be given a written treatment plan and price quote to take with you and consider at home. You have the option of scheduling your surgery while you’re in the office if you’d like to move forward.

About the Surgery
Dr. Mukerji performs facelift procedures in a nearby hospital using a general anesthetic. The procedure takes approximately 2 to 4 hours to complete depending on whether your facelift is being performed individually or combined with other procedures.
Dr. Mukerji conceals the incisions in a natural crease near each ear and within the hairline up to the temple. He lifts sagging facial tissues, removes excess fat, and tightens underlying muscles. He then completes the surgery by redraping the skin over the reshaped facial structures and carefully trims away any excess for a natural, not pulled, look.
Recovery After Facelift Surgery
Facelift patients typically return home the day of surgery. Initial discomfort may be managed with prescription medication. Keeping your head elevated at all times and refraining from any strenuous activities will help minimize swelling and bruising. While healing rates vary, you should feel ready to return to work within 1 to 3 weeks, once most of the swelling and bruising have diminished.
After surgery and recovery, Dr. Mukerji’s facelift patients enjoy looking younger and refreshed, yet still like themselves. Results last for many years; although, the natural aging process will continue.Back to Top
