Facelift West Palm Beach
The natural facelift is one of the procedures for which Dr. Mark Murphy is known. Delivering one of the best facelift West Palm Beach has to offer, he has crafted an impeccable surgical approach that patients love, because it ensures that they emerge from their procedure with a naturally more youthful appearance that looks fresh and organic – never overdone.
When to consider a facelift
An expertly performed facelift is the most comprehensive approach to treating facial wrinkles and sagging skin. It has the ability to dramatically improve the signs of aging and take years off your overall appearance–rejuvenating you. As such, it’s a procedure that many women and men find themselves wanting as the aging process progresses. Though every patient is unique, in general we recommend considering a Jupiter, FL facelift if:
- You possess signs of facial aging, such as wrinkles, lines and sagging skin.
- Your facial appearance looks older than you feel.
What to expect during your facelift
Prior to your facelift, you will have a private consultation with Dr. Murphy in his Palm Beach Gardens office. During that meeting, he will spend a great deal of time with you discussing your cosmetic concerns and goals for surgery. From there, he will carefully assess the signs of aging you’d like to address, before offering personalized recommendations regarding how he can help you achieve a naturally more youthful and refreshed appearance.
To begin your procedure, Dr. Murphy’s team will administer twilight anesthesia, to ensure a safe and pain free surgery. From there, he will create incisions that allow him to access your underlying facial muscles and tissue. In most cases, the incisions will begin at the temple, then proceed down along the natural creases in within the ear, for near complete camouflage of the incision, and behind your ears and into the patient’s hairline.

Through those openings, Dr. Murphy will address your signs of aging using a deep plane technique, which requires the highest level of skill and artistry. It’s the ideal approach to facial rejuvenation because it provides the most natural and longest-lasting facelift results possible, with the smallest risk of scarring and complications. Instead of pulling skin tight and removing the excess tissue, a deep plane facelift focuses on releasing and repositioning the underlying muscles and fat, returning them to their more youthful and natural positions.
Throughout your procedure, you can be assured that Dr. Murphy is operating with his signature conservative approach, which is key to avoiding a pulled-back, artificial or overdone look. He will make very subtle, artistic alterations that allow him to address virtually any sign of facial aging, including deep creases below the eyes, sagging skin on the cheeks, lines around the mouth and excess fat and skin around the chin and jawline. Once Dr. Murphy has successfully rejuvenated your facial appearance, he will meticulously close the incisions to ensure that any resulting scars are very faint and difficult to see once you’ve fully healed.
A West Palm Beach facelift is a fairly intensive procedure and, as such, it’s associated with a recovery period. In general, you can expect to stay home from work for ten to fourteen days and avoid strenuous exercise for three to four weeks. However, Dr. Murphy will provide you with a personalized timeline during your post-operative appointments.
Immediately after your procedure, it’s normal to experience bruising, swelling and discomfort in the treatment area. However, all of these effects will subside gradually as you recover. You will see Dr. Murphy’s team every other day for the first week of surgery to ensure a seamless recovery. You will be advised to keep your head elevated to minimize swelling and take your pain medication as directed to manage any discomfort.
We invite you to schedule a consultation at our Palm Beach Gardens office today, and let esteemed facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark R. Murphy, help you create the enhanced appearance you deserve.
