What Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures are Available in Salt Lake City & Park City, UT?

While getting a Facelift is something that you desire, doing a little bit of research beforehand is always a good idea. With different faces and different expectations, there are a few different options and techniques available to achieve your goals.

This all-encompassing cosmetic treatment addresses the aging neck, face, eyelids, and forehead. It includes several procedures that tighten the sagging skin and, depending on the need, correct deeper structures. The incisions begin under the chin for treatment of the neck, continue around the ears, and end at the temple area along the sideburn. The tissues are repositioned and the muscles tightened and lifted. The skin is then pulled back over the muscles and excess skin is trimmed away, tightening the neck and facial skin.

The Modern Facelift in Salt Lake City and Park City includes the treatment of the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS). This procedure corrects the expressions and movement of your face, or the up and down muscles, that allow you to frown and smile. Dr. Saltz utilizes fibrin glue to seal the deeper layers prior to closure helping to minimize bruising and swelling and expedite healing. Because we use skin glues instead of skin sutures, this allows our patients to cover their new scars with make-up in the very first days after surgery.

These are procedures performed using endoscopic surgery with 3-4 very small scars behind the hairline. A brow lift specifically targets forehead wrinkles and sagging skin above the eyebrows.

A neck lift incision begins at the front and extends around and behind the ear, ending below the scalp. The skin is lifted to correct sagging, jowls, or fat accumulation in the neck.

What is Involved in the Recovery After a Facelift in Salt Lake City or Park City?

After your surgery, your incisions will be covered with bandages that must remain in place for 48 hours. You will experience extensive bruising and swelling due to tissue trauma. This will last from two to three weeks. While you may not want to go out in public, you will begin to feel much better just a few days after your surgery. Your stitches will come out in a week. There will likely be some numbness in areas of your face, which is normal and may last for a few weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dr. Saltz is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He was Associate Professor of Plastic Surgery and Director of the Summit Plastic Surgery Center at the University of Utah prior to opening his practice. He has been president of both the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS) and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). He has published and presented over 500 national and international papers on various aspects of reconstructive and plastic surgery. He has written seven books and 39 book chapters on plastic surgery.

Those are the kind of credentials you can trust with a procedure as complicated as a facelift. This isn’t simply a case of lifting skin and stretching it. You’ve seen plenty of botched cases of that in the celebrity world. This is a complex procedure that demands extensive knowledge of facial anatomy and structure. Dr. Saltz has nearly 30 years of practicing and teaching surgery and will deliver the results you seek.

Many people are good candidates for a Facelift. The signs of aging and sun damage — wrinkles, creases, and sagging skin — are especially evident on the face. Especially living in the dry, high altitude of Salt Lake City or Park City, Utah, our faces take a beating from the sun, the hot and cold temperatures, and the low humidity. And that’s not even addressing lifestyle issues such as stress that also age our skin.

The changes made by Dr. Saltz are permanent. The repositioning of the SMAS system and tissue will remain in place the rest of your life. They will continue to improve as the swelling decreases. It will take a few months to see your full results, as swelling can come and go especially later in the day. It’s important to remember that these changes are for the duration. Muscles that are repositioned are not going to shift. Excess skin that has been removed is gone.

That said, the aging process will continue, but it will advance from a younger starting point. Still, many patients opt to have a more limited procedure, a mini facelift, in 5-10 years to keep up with the natural aging process.

Dr. Saltz uses his extensive expertise with this surgery to effectively hide your incisions. He uses the natural chin crease and hides the ear incisions in the hairline as much as possible. These scars will heal well naturally and will be quite inconspicuous in a matter of months.

Facelifts involve a good deal of tissue lifting and repositioning. This creates tissue trauma, bruising, and swelling, making a facelift recovery more involved than many other aesthetic procedures. It’s tempting for patients to want to get their blood moving again and exercise to help with their recovery, but some patience here will go a long way. Exercising too soon after this surgery can lead to complications and a longer recovery.

For the first few days, Dr. Saltz encourages his patients to take short light walks, as this helps with circulation. The key is to not raise your heart rate or blood pressure — this can cause blood vessels on your face to bleed.

You can increase activity levels over the remainder of your first month after surgery, but heavy lifting, weight training, and strenuous exercise needs to be avoided. You need to keep your facial blood pressure down.

Most patients can return to work by the third week after surgery, but you’ll probably need to use some camouflage cosmetics. After one month, you can add light cardio exercise, such as slowly pedaling a stationary bike. At six weeks you can return to all exercise, although this can vary by the patient.

A facelift with Dr. Saltz is major surgery. That means it includes the risks associated with surgery: bleeding, infection, hematoma, and the like. Beyond those general risks of surgery, facelifts can create a temporary loss of muscle function and sensation. The incision scars can thicken and widen, especially if recovery procedures are not followed. There can be hair loss at the incision sites within the hairline. If you follow Dr. Saltz’ recovery instructions, these complications are rare. Facelifts are a very satisfying procedure for the vast majority of patients.

You’ve heard of “liquid facelifts” accomplishing the same rejuvenation as surgical facelifts, but this isn’t accurate. Yes, dermal fillers will return volume to sunken cheeks and to areas around the mouth. But, as you would assume, they can’t change the underlying sagging of the skin and musculature. Dermal fillers can improve volume deficits for up to one year. Surgical facelifts provide permanent change.
