As we age, the skin on our face begins to lose its elasticity and firmness, leading to fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging that can give us an aged appearance that does not match our internal vigor. Aging may be a natural part of life, but it still has a huge impact on how we are perceived by other people and can also be crushing for our self-confidence. There are many cosmetic procedures out there that can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin, but the only way to indeed correct these symptoms of aging is with a facelift.
There are a couple of different facelift procedures available depending on the area that you wish to target, but for best results, here at The Pennsylvania Centre for Plastic Surgery in Philadelphia, we recommend a short scar facelift procedure combined with a neck lift. A short scar facelift primarily focuses on the lower part of the face and jowls, and when combined with a neck lift can give an all-round more youthful appearance to the face and neck.
During this facelift procedure, Dr. A Scott Brenman, a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons will make a hidden incision in the natural creases of your face before removing any excess fat and skin. The procedure generally takes between three and four hours, with the initial results visible just one month after surgery. Your final result is visible after six to twelve months once everything has healed and settled back into place.
A short scar facelift can also be combined with a brow lift or eyelid surgery if these areas also require attention.
Benefits of Facelift
The benefits of a facelift are numerous and can provide people with a new sense of confidence at home and in their workplace. A facelift can;
- Tighten and lift unsightly sagging skin that can make you look older
- Make you appear younger by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Slim the face by removing excess fat that may have started to accumulate in the jaw and neck area
- And restore your jawline by removing and lifting your jowls.
Many people report that following their facelift, they have more courage and assurance at work and feel happier in their personal and family lives.

“After losing 87 pounds I decided I would treat myself and get a tummy tuck that I have been wanting for some time. I researched and thought Dr Scot Brenman would be best. Well suffice it to say I am not thrilled with my results. Ultimately my tummy is flatter which was what I wanted but my belly button is 2 inches above the incision line which I hate! He promised lipo which til this day I’m betting he didn’t do! Also his aftercare was thee WORSE! He never followed up with me after the removal of my drains! No way will he receive another one of my hard earned dimes!” *
