If you look in the mirror and are unhappy with the way your sagging facial tissues make you look old or worn, a Dallas facelift surgery may be a good procedure for you. Although there have been many innovations in cosmetic surgery, there is nothing that can replace a facelift. Only a facelift has the ability to rejuvenate your facial appearance by elevating tissues that have sagged as a result of a combination of gravity, time, and changes in your tissues. However, to successfully perform a facelift and give you natural-looking, long-lasting results requires a skilled and practiced hand.
This page gives some basic information about the facelift procedure, but it cannot evaluate your facial aging and make recommendations about the best procedure for you.

Types of Facelifts
When we are talking about facelifts, we are actually referring to a number of different procedures, and selecting the right facelift for you is the first important way your choice of plastic surgeon will make a difference. In truth, every Dallas facelift surgery is different, custom-designed for your unique facial tissues and symptoms of facial aging, but they can be divided into a number of basic categories:
Each of these techniques can target different symptoms of facial aging to help you achieve the facial rejuvenation you desire.
Facelift Facts, not Fads
A facelift is unequalled in its ability to elevate sagging facial tissues and rejuvenate your facial appearance, but it does have its drawbacks. Facelift recovery can take up to two weeks, depending on the amount of correction you require and your personal healing rate. In the great tradition of American salesmanship, this means that there are thousands of people out there looking to make a few quick bucks by promising you the results of a facelift without any of the drawbacks.
Although sometimes called a “liquid facelift,” injectable cosmetic treatments are never a substitute for a true facelift. Many times, a facelift with injectables can be used to get you more complete facial rejuvenation. Nor are any of the other facelift fads that have come and gone (or are going) good substitutes for a true facelift. When genuine surgical innovations have been developed, Dr. Rai has evaluated them and incorporated useful ones into his technique, but you can trust that Dr. Rai will never adopt a surgical technique just because it’s the latest thing without first evaluating its safety and effectiveness.
Why Choose Dr. Rai for Your Facelift
A facelift is among the most complicated of plastic surgery procedures. Everyone’s facial anatomy is different, and the effects of aging equally personal. When you add to this the need to correct the symptoms of aging by lifting and repositioning tissues in a way that will give lasting results without stretching them or creating an artificial appearance, you can begin to appreciate the complexity. And, finally, a surgeon needs to be practiced in surgical technique to do all this safely and reliably.
Because of the complexity of a Dallas facelift sugery, you need to work with a board certified plastic surgeon for your facelift procedure. Dr. Vasdev Rai is a board-certified plastic surgeon whose 30 years of practice in the Dallas-Fort Worth area have helped him hone his facelift technique for safety, longevity, and natural subtlety. You can see examples of his results in our Before and after gallery.
