For many people, it’s important that their facial appearance project a smooth, well-rested, pleasant image to the rest of the world. Signs of aging, exposure to the sun, stress and certain lifestyle habits can threaten to upset the vitality of the facial skin. These imperfections can be addressed with facelift surgery. Discuss your options for restoring a youthful glow to your face with Dr. Humberto Palladino at his plastic surgery practice in El Paso.
Am I Candidate for Facelift Surgery?
Facelift may be appropriate for your needs if you have one or more of the following cosmetic concerns:
- Displaced facial fat
- Creases beneath the lower eyelids
- Lines or folds extending from the nose to the corner of the mouth
- Wrinkles around the nose and mouth
- Loss of muscle tone in the lower face
- Loose skin and fat under the chin
As long as you are in good health and have concrete, realistic goals for facelift surgery, you should make a suitable candidate. Dr. Palladino will meet with you to discuss your expectations of surgery and assess your needs. Then, he will formulate a personalized plan for comprehensive correction.
A note about what facelift surgery can accomplish: facelift targets the middle and lower regions of your face; it will not correct a sagging brow or droopy eyelids. Facelift can, however, be performed in conjunction with a brow lift, forehead lift or eyelid surgery, depending on how dramatic you would like your results to be.

The Procedure – What to Expect
Facelift is an outpatient procedure performed at an accredited surgery center. Dr. Palladino and the Southwest Plastic Surgery team will give you all of the information you need to properly prepare for surgery — for example, you will be asked to refrain from eating or drinking anything at least eight hours prior to your procedure.
You should arrive at the surgery center before your scheduled surgery time. While you are being prepped for surgery, you will receive anesthesia to make the experience painless and comfortable. After Dr. Palladino has made all of the necessary surgical corrections, you will be able to relax in the recovery suite before going home. You should pre-arrange for someone to drive you to and from surgery, and to help you get situated in a comfortable position back at home.
Facelift recovery is not as extensive as you may assume. With the proper amount of rest and care, you will be back to work quickly, looking more refreshed than ever. Swelling, bruising and numbness are temporary and will subside within a week or two. Dr. Palladino advises you to refrain from straining, bending and lifting during the first few days of your recovery, and will follow-up with you to ensure you are healing properly. If you have any questions or concerns during your facelift recovery, the Southwest Plastic Surgery team is happy to help.
The price range for a facelift is very broad due to the many options available. To offer an idea it can be anywhere between $2,000 to $15,000. This price range includes the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia, and the medical facilities. For the convenience of his patients, Dr. Palladino offers financial options at his office. You can inquire about it on the day of your consultation.
