No one looks forward to the day when someone they know asks “Did you get enough sleep last night? You look tired,” even though they slept fine. Unfortunately, comments like these happen all too often as we get older and our skin begins to change. Wrinkles, fine lines, deep lines and sagging skin contribute to someone having an angry, or sour look.
Finding a good solution to these problems usually involves having multiple dermal fillers to fight wrinkles, harsh chemicals to clean the skin and maybe more. Instead of spending more time than you need to, and making multiple trips to and from the office, why not have everything done at once? Many facial problems can be solved with a facelift.

What is a Facelift in Austin?
A facelift is a minimally invasive procedure which lifts and tightens the skin in the face to reduce wrinkles, stop fine lines and provide a smoother, younger look. This is one of the most used age-defying techniques in the world because of its results and long-lasting effects. Some of the most popular uses for a facelift in Austin is:
- Tightening the Skin
- Smoothing Out Wrinkles
- Reduce Sagging Skin
- Refresh the Face
- And more
This technique is proven to be safe and effective for healthy adults.
The Facelift in Austin Procedure
This procedure is a minimally invasive surgery which has noticeable downtime and requires you to be driven to and from the appointment. However, once the procedure is complete, the results can last for years to come.
Dr. Erella will start the procedure by removing any excess skin you may have. Excess skin is one of the reasons the skin begins to sag and removing the skin instantly provides a tighter look. In addition to removing excess skin, the doctor will also remove excess facial fat. Fat isn’t as bad to have on your face than, say, your stomach. But having too much fat on your face in comparison to your body forces you to look inflated.
Once the excess skin and fat are removed, Dr. Erella will tighten and lift the muscles underneath the face. Rearranging the muscles provides the base for your new face once the procedure is done. Lastly, the remaining skin will be lifted and tightened to match the new muscle structure.
Each of these four steps results in a tighter, brighter face for you.
What Happens Next?
Once your appointment is completed, it’s critical to take care of your new face. Providing multiple days of rest is essential to allowing the face to heal. During recovery, the face may swell, bruise, sting and be painful to the touch. Icing the face to prevent swelling and taking medication for pain will help.
