Nonsurgical Alternatives

Surgery is not your only option for looking younger. Dr. Jarmuz is highly skilled in the use of nonsurgical treatments such as:

For those with mild facial aging, a “liquid facelift” consisting of BOTOX and dermal filler injections is often a good alternative to a surgical facelift.

These non-invasive methods are virtually painless and the procedures can be performed right in Dr. Jarmuz’s office without anesthesia and require little to no downtime. Dr. Jarmuz performs many medical spa services and can discuss your options with you.

The Procedure

Like most surgical procedures Dr. Jarmuz performs in Atlanta, a facelift requires IV sedation or local anesthesia; advances in the field have made it so that general anesthesia is not required. The incisions are made in the natural contours of the ears, making any scars nearly imperceptible. Through these incisions, facial muscles are tightened and excess fat and skin are removed.

Many people are interested in a “mini facelift.” Generally, a “mini lift” is a facelift performed using a shorter incision when less correction is needed. Dr. Jarmuz believes that any procedure should be performed cautiously with an awareness of recovery time and potential for scarring, so she will evaluate your individual needs and use the shortest incisions possible to achieve your desired improvement.

Dr. Jarmuz also offers several other surgical procedures that will address different facial areas: brow lift, eyelid surgery and neck lift. Some people choose to combine these procedures with their facelift for a more complete transformation. Dr. Jarmuz will take the time to listen to your goals for surgery and, if you are interested in treating multiple areas, she will help you determine if combining procedures would be advantageous.


Dr. Jarmuz tells her patients that they can typically expect to look as much as 10 years younger after their facelift. Wrinkles and sagging will be eliminated, with the goal of a naturally beautiful result.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does facelift surgery last?

Facelift results generally last 8 to 10 years. Although a facelift cannot completely stop the aging process, your facelift will help you continue to look younger than your years as you age.

How many years younger will I look after a facelift?

Studies show that people who have had facelift surgery look an average of 12 years younger.

Can someone be too young for a facelift?

Choosing to have a facelift is less about age and more about the degree of skin laxity in the lower part of the face. Some people in their 40s retain some skin elasticity, and a mini facelift can achieve their rejuvenation goals. Most people who have facelift surgery are in their 50s or 60s.

Is the surgery safe?

Facelift surgery is generally considered safe for healthy, well-screened candidates when a highly qualified surgeon performs the procedure in an accredited surgical facility. To further protect your safety, choose a surgeon who is certified by both the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Will anyone be able to tell that I’ve had this procedure?

Modern facelift surgical techniques create a naturally refreshed look rather than the cliché wind-tunnel look of decades past. It won’t be obvious that you’ve had a facelift, you’ll simply look like a younger version of yourself.
