Facelift in Virginia Beach, VA
As we age, it is normal to become acutely aware of our appearance. We get fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and droopy eyelids as a result of gravity, time, and hormonal changes.

Led by board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Kevin Bounds, Plastic Surgery of Virginia Beach proudly provides facelifts to residents of Norfolk, Chesapeake, Newport News and surrounding communities in Virginia.

What is a Facelift?
The facelift procedure can reverse signs of aging and result in a smooth, even, and more uplifted face. Unlike fillers and Botox®, the facelift is a surgical procedure with noticeable results (but no one will know why!), even on your most obvious and troublesome signs of aging. The facelift procedure is ideal for correcting deep lines, wrinkles, creases, and sagging skin. The facelift procedure can also help to lift the eyelids and brow line, to restore your younger appearance. The facelift procedure considers to be most popular because it is effective and gives our patients fantastic results.
Who is a Candidate for a Facelift?
The facelift procedure is most recommended for women over the age of forty whom have noticeable signs of aging on more than one area of the face. The facelift is the only procedure capable of correcting multiple signs of aging on multiple areas of the face, such as correcting forehead wrinkles and sagging cheeks at one time. If you’ve noticed that the aging process has left you looking like a different version of yourself, the facelift can help you feel like “you” again. The facelift is especially helpful at treating the most stubborn signs of aging, including the deep wrinkles across the forehead, on the sides of mouth, and the vertical wrinkles between the brows. If your eyelids are of significant concern, this procedure can be combined with an eye lift (LINK) for maximum results. Schedule a consultation today to discuss your true candidacy.
How is a Face Lift Performed?
The facelift procedure is performed using only local anesthesia so that you can remain completely comfortable and awake during the entire procedure. To begin the procedure, Dr. Bounds will make small incisions along the hairline and in the natural crease right in front of the ears, for invisible scarring. Using these incisions, Dr. Bounds will separate fat from the underlying muscle and contour the areas of the face (for example, moving excess fat out of the jawline and into the cheeks) for a more youthful shape. Once the fat is removed and the face is sculpted, Dr. Bounds will pull the skin taut on the face for a smooth, toned appearance and will close the incisions. Once the incisions are closed, the healing process can begin. We will prepare you for your individual aftercare plan at your consultation.
How Much Does a Facelift Cost in Virginia Beach, VA?
The cost of your facelift will depend on the scope of your treatment, and the amount of correction needed. Dr. Bounds will discuss the cost for your facelift procedure at your consultation, where he will develop a specialized treatment plan just for you. For your convenience, we offer CareCredit® and APLPHAEON financing on all procedures. For more information, visit our patient financing page.
