Face Lift Houston

A facelift should not change your appearance –it will lift and tighten the sagging skin and muscles of your face and neck to restore its youthful contours. Think of a ‘younger’ you, as opposed to a ‘trapped in a wind tunnel’ you.

By making small skin incisions hidden around the ear, chin, and/or hairline, excess skin is removed to help smooth out your facial skin. These incisions typically heal as inconspicuous, hairline scars.

Please feel free to call or email us at Lou Plastic Surgery. We serve patients throughout the Houston, and will be glad to schedule a confidential consultation for you.

If you are concerned with facial wrinkles, loose skin, or other signs of aging, you may want to consider the benefits of a face list. Also known as a rhytidectomy, a facelift is one of the most popular procedures in cosmetic surgery. It can improve the contours of your face and restore a healthy, youthful appearance.

Dr. Derek Lou is a face lift surgeon that can discuss your procedure with you to make sure you receive the results you want. We have years of experience helping people accomplish a natural, satisfactory appearance.

Procedure Description

Because of individual factors, not everyone will achieve the same results from a facelift. Although there are many variations to the facelift procedure, generally an incision is hidden in the natural contour of your ear, and then extended around the earlobe and back into the hairline. Following surgery, incisions can be easily concealed by your hair or with makeup. There may also be a small incision hidden underneath your chin.

Your Personal Consultation

Dr. Lou will discuss with you exactly the areas you would like to see improvement in he may ask you to look in a mirror and point out exactly what you would like to see improved. He will then suggest potential solutions such as:

  • Resurfacing
  • Modified Face Lift
  • Full Face Lift

It is important to be honest about your thoughts and concerns during the consultation. Dr. Lou can only choose the best methods for addressing your concerns when he is fully informed.

How will Dr. Lou evaluate me for facelift surgery?

In evaluating you for surgery, Dr. Lou will assess the thickness, texture and elasticity of your skin, and the severity of wrinkles and folds. Your hairline will be examined to determine where incisions can be discreetly placed. All of these factors, as well as your bone structure and underlying tissues, will be considered in developing an individual surgical plan.

Other Options

Dr. Lou may discuss with you additional procedures that can be performed along with a facelift in order to address all the concerns you have identified. For example, a facelift is frequently combined with a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, nose reshaping or skin treatments such as a chemical peel, dermabrasion, or laser resurfacing.


Any surgical procedure brings with it certain risks. However, major complications are extremely uncommon in facelifts, and even minor complications (that do not affect the outcome / success of the procedure) are also rare.
