"Awesome eyelid result - I've used Dr. Kasden for a past breast augmentation and facelift. Last week I had my upper eyelids done to reduce the amount of sagging skin. The procedure was done in his office. I drove myself there and home. I had the surgery on a Friday and the sutures came out 4 days later. My eyelids are still a little swollen and pink, but nothing I can't cover up with eyeshadow and some concealer. I wear readers, so no one has really even commented on the swelling I have left over. Once again, he did an awesome job! When I tell people how old I am, they are genuinely surprised and not just being nice. It's amazing how much sagging eyelids can age a person, and since the procedure is done in his office, and it's a pretty quick procedure, I'd highly recommend you look into it with Dr. Kasden if your eyelids are making you look older and tired."

"I wanted liposuction on my neck, which had always been large for most of my life (even when I was younger and lighter). My face and neck are the first things people see about me, so I decided to get surgery to make it look more proportionate and slender. In our first consult, Dr. Kasden discussed my overall health with me for an hour before even talking about the surgery. Then, after he explained the procedure in great detail, he told me to take my time and think about it before deciding. No pressure whatsoever. I'm very happy with the results so far (I'm still healing), but it's exactly what I wanted. I have definition, and when I look in the mirror I don't see a bullfrog neck and double chin. He wants not just a good result, but a perfect result."

"62. Southlake, TX - I want to work another 10 years - love my job, but average age at my company is mid-30's. I didn't want major changes; I just wanted to look my best. We decided on a lower facelift (everything but eyes and forehead). Dr. Kasden didn't try to talk me into anything or out of anything. He answered my questions and my husband's questions, took LOTS of time with me, and made us both laugh - very personable. His staff gave me a quote back in September of 2014, and that amount actually was reduced by about $200 by the time I had the surgery in January of 2015. At first, I looked like a "Q-Tip" after the surgery. He saw me daily at first, then weekly. Now I don't go back until mid-April. At first I was so swollen, but because I followed his directions EXACTLY, I didn't bruise as badly as I would have. As the days and then weeks went by, I noticed gradual changes, as the swelling went down and the bruising faded. Then all of a sudden, almost overnight, I woke up about 6 weeks after the surgery, looked in the mirror, and thought I looked beautiful! I looked about 15 years younger, and I am so, SO happy that I had this procedure done. Be patient - everyone is different - it takes about 5-6 weeks to start seeing the "end result", and Dr. K tells me I will continue to improve over the next few months! I couldn't be happier with Dr. Kasden and his staff and the outcome of my procedure. I would definitely do it again!"

"Great treatment. The end result gets better every day. It's been less than 3 weeks. - A friend recommended Dr Kasden and I am so glad she did. Dr Kasden spends time with his patients to make sure he knows what you want and can explain what is best for the result you want. Dr Kasden is warm and thoughtful and his staff is accommodating and friendly. I had lower face lift. Dr Kasden kept in contact with my husband during my procedure. There was no pain, only slight discomfort. Dr Kasden is a very caring, concerned, skilled surgeon. I highly recommend this surgeon."

Candidates for a facelift wish to correct visible lines and facial wrinkles whether it be on the entire face or on the upper, mid, or lower sections. Facelift surgery can address many aspects depending on your unique needs. It is important to understand that age does not necessarily define the appropriate time to have a facelift. There are so many factors and concerns, and also numerous lift methods depending on what is being corrected. The facelift chosen will vary for patients who are 35 years old versus those in their 60s and 70s. Skin elasticity is one of the most important factors in the planning process. Facelift patients should be in good physical health and refrain from smoking, and also have realistic expectations.
Depending on your individual needs, there are a number of facelifts available. Some facelifts rejuvenate the upper portion of the face while others focus on the middle and lower. Furthermore, some procedures are slightly more invasive and intricate than others. It is also common for some men and women to have a brow lift, forehead lift, or fillers and BOTOX to enhance their results. A few of the more common facelift methods include:
After surgery, you will be monitored before you are released to go home with a responsible adult. Before your facelift, Dr. Kasden or a member of his team will schedule your follow-up appointments and discuss tips to make you recover faster and more comfortably. You should expect to have swelling and puffiness, some moderate soreness, and discomfort, which can be helped by pain prescription medication. You should look and feel normal after 2 – 4 weeks. You will see a softer, more youthful appearance. In all, your face will be slightly lifted and rejuvenated.
How much does a facelift cost?
The total cost of your facelift will vary based on the technique used. During your consultation, Dr. Kasden will develop your custom treatment plan based on your needs and goals. Once this is established, he can discuss cost estimates. To avoid results that look unnatural, it's best to focus on finding an experienced surgeon, like Dr. Kasden, instead of the cheapest price. The plastic surgery practice of Scott E. Kasden, M.D. can help you find low-interest medical financing that will make your surgery easier to afford.
Which technique is best for me?
The best surgical facelift technique for you will depend on your needs, goals, degree of skin laxity, which areas of your face are being addressed, and more. To produce the results you want, Dr. Kasden will discuss the different surgical techniques during your consultation. He will then help you decide which technique is best for you.
Should I get a surgical or nonsurgical facelift?
While there are many great nonsurgical skin tightening procedures, these can usually only produce mild improvements. If you have moderate to severe skin sagging, a surgical facelift is the best choice to significantly improve your appearance. During your consultation, Dr. Kasden will discuss your options, including nonsurgical treatments, to help you decide what is best for your needs and goals.
What about wrinkle fillers and relaxers over facelift surgery?
Injectable wrinkle fillers and relaxers, like Juvéderm and BOTOX, have become very popular in recent years to refresh the face. Sometimes known as a liquid facelift, injectable wrinkle treatments can relieve early signs of aging, but the results are temporary. A facelift can produce more dramatic improvements than injectables with results that can last for a long time. Ask Dr. Kasden about injectable treatments during your consultation.
Will my results look natural?
Many patients worry that facelift surgery will make their skin look too tight, shiny, or like they live in a wind tunnel. Dr. Kasden focuses on giving you a natural-looking result, so you look refreshed and not fake. He listens to your needs and goals before developing your personal treatment plan with the technique that will produce your best results.
Facelift surgery can take years off your face and help create a fresh look. Today, there are many options for surgery based on your personal needs and goals. This treatment is designed to help you look younger but still natural. To learn more, we invite you to contact the plastic surgery practice of Scott E.
