Facelift in Houston

Refreshed. Youthful. You.

Age Gracefully, Live Confidently

Over time, the aging process—gravity, lifestyle factors, and even genetic components—can often cause drooping or sagging skin for even the healthiest of people!

For those who cannot achieve the skin-tightening results they’re looking for through non-surgical treatments alone, a facelift might be a great option.

Thousands of patients have trusted the dependable, skilled surgeons of Heights Plastic Surgery to deliver skillful results that look and feel naturally you.

What to Expect

Before, During, & After Your Facelift in Houston

1. Attend a One-on-One Consultation

If you're interested in a facelift in Houston, you'll first meet with a physician for a one-on-one consultation. We take the time to get to know you—your goals, medical history, skin type and tone, face shape, and more.

2. Review Your Treatment Plan.

Houston facelift experts, Dr. Downey and Dr. Bullocks, collaborate on every patient case to best advise you on the best facelift option: standard facelift, mini-facelift, mid-facelift, or modified facelift. We build a highly personalized treatment plan that may include a combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures to achieve the best possible results.

3. Make Your Decision.

At Heights Plastic Surgery, our mission is to give you all the information you need to decide what will work best for your desires, timeline, and budget. After we make recommendations, we give you the space and time to make your own decision.

4. Schedule Your Facelift.

We will schedule your facelift—an outpatient procedure performed in our private, on-site surgery center—for a day and time that works best for you. You'll want to factor in about 3 to 5 days of downtime from everyday activities and work after your procedure.

5. Arrive for Surgery

We will provide you with all the ways you can best prepare for the procedure well in advance of your Houston facelift. When you arrive, we will escort you to our state-of-the-art surgical suite, review our process in detail once more, then begin the procedure.

6. Getting Your Facelift

Your highly skilled surgeon will be in the operating room from start to finish, executing every detail of your agreed-upon facelift plan. Make sure you have a plan for getting home after your procedure, as you will not be able to drive yourself.

7. Follow Up.

Following your facelift Houston plastic surgeons at Heights Plastic Surgery will also book you for follow-up visits to meet with your surgeon to monitor the area. This important step ensures you are healing properly, safely, and efficiently.
