Look and Feel Younger with a Facelift
Why Choose Dr. Mills
A Unique Surgical Approach
Dr. Mills and the team at our Pensacola, FL, practice, believe there is no one-size-fits-all plastic surgery. Every person has unique aspects of their appearance that should be maintained and enhanced. Dr. Mills' approach to cosmetic surgery will not change the fundamentals of your appearance but can help restore the definition and tone of your younger years. We take into account your skin quality, texture, features, and bone structure to curate a facelift surgery that produces optimal enhancement and natural-looking results.
Complete, Natural Improvement
A standard full-facelift targets the neck, jaw, and cheeks areas that are especially prone to sagging and lost definition The entire lower face and cheek area can be lifted and tightened, treating jowls and smoothing lines around the mouth and nose. Our goal is to provide comprehensive enhancement so one area of the face does not look significantly tighter than another. Therefore Dr. Mills tends to avoid mini-facelifts that only target the lower half of the face, and can leave the eyes and brows looking aged.

What Is the Facelift Procedure?
Time, gravity, and environmental elements can be destructive to the skin and underlying facial structure. A facelift is a unique cosmetic surgery that corrects these visible signs of aging by removing excess skin and fat deposits, and tightening the underlying muscle tissue. At your initial consultation at our Pensacola practice, board-certified surgeon David M. Mills will discuss your goals and medical history to determine if you are a good candidate for plastic surgery.
The Benefits of a Facelift
Achieve a More Youthful Appearance
The most important benefit of a facelift procedure is the ability to reverse the most obvious signs of aging. Dr. Mills uses advanced techniques to eliminate creases, jowls, and sagging to smooth the skin and restore youthful contours. It is not uncommon for patients to look ten years younger after surgery.
Improve Your Self-Confidence
The signs of aging not only affect how you look; it can also significantly impact your self-confidence. While patients should have realistic expectations going into a facelift procedure, the results can drastically improve your quality of life and overall self-esteem.
Customize Your Surgery
Dr. Mills can combine other cosmetic procedures such as an eye lift, brow lift, neck lift, eyelid surgery, and liposuction to achieve comprehensive results and adequately target all your areas of concern. We will discuss your cosmetic goals and tailor treatment to meet your needs.
Enhance Aesthetics in the Long-Term
While injectable fillers can provide temporary anti-aging benefits, no procedure improves the contours of your bone structure and addresses excess skin like a facelift. The results are much more permanent, providing lasting cosmetic enhancement for years to come.
The Procedure Timeline
Using a high degree of artistry, we resculpt the tissues to revive sunken areas and better define your bone structure.
Recovering from Plastic Surgery
Initial Hands-On Care
A facelift or neck lift is a surgical procedure that requires a week or two of downtime to recover from the operation. You will need a friend or family member to drive you home and assist you with hands-on care in the first few days after surgery.
Expect some pain, swelling, and bruising, especially in the first week after the operation. Our plastic surgeon will provide medication and detailed instructions on mitigating pain and other side effects. While most people can return to work in about two weeks after surgery, refrain from anything more than light physical activity for about a month.
Healing and Final Results
It typically takes two to three months for the face to begin feeling back to normal. Patients will start to see their results when the swelling and bruising subside. Everyone recovers differently, so it is important to attend your follow-up appointments at our Pensacola office to ensure you are healing properly. While it can take up to a year for the final results to become apparent, you will see lasting rejuvenation for well over a decade.
