One of the best ways to rejuvenate and restore a more youthful appearance is through a facelift, which is also one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available.


A minimally invasive facelift involves addressing lax facial skin and fat in the lower portions of the face for a tighter and smoother overall look. The talented surgeons at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City use the SmartLift facelift technique to address aging skin for a more youthful appearance and often incorporate additional rejuvenating procedures, such as a forehead lift, neck lift, or brow lift to further complement the results.

With the best possible outcome, some patients can look as much as ten years younger following surgery. If you are interested in learning more about minimally invasive facelifts, schedule a visit with Dr. Erik Nuveen or Dr. Courtney Caplin at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates.


Smartlift

Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates's use of the SmartLift facelift technique means no use of general anesthesia, which allows for a faster recovery. Many patients and colleagues refer to the technique as a lunchtime lift or a one-stage total facelift as it provides highly customized results with minimal recovery.

Typically performed on the lower two-thirds of the face, SmartLift often includes the neck, chin, and cheeks, improving the entire lower face and jawline. To further customize the procedure, we may recommend procedures, such as laser skin resurfacing, for total skin rejuvenation.




I love Dr. Nuveen and his staff, very professional and friendly. My mother had a full face lift and looks fabulous. Staff, including Dr. Nuveen called and checked on her several times even giving her his cell number. I have had four Procedures done and had the best results along with the best care possible!

Surgical Technique

The technique used during each facelift is dependent on the patient’s unique facial features and personal aesthetic goals. Our surgeons use a minimally invasive technique customized to address your specific concerns. We utilize IV sedation versus general anesthesia so that our patients can return to their lives faster.

Before the beginning of your procedure, one of our skilled surgeons will create a detailed treatment plan, which could include a SmartLift facelift, a forehead or brow lift, laser skin resurfacing, injectables, or a combination of these. Our team will ensure you understand the details of your surgery beforehand so we can help you to set reasonable expectations for the outcome.




I am so pleased with my recent face and neck lift performed by Dr. Caplin. The entire staff is kind and compassionate from beginning to end! Thank you all!

During/After your Facelift Surgery

All facelift procedures are performed in an accredited surgical facility with IV sedation. Many patients are able to return home to rest within a short period of time. However, this is dependent on the number and type of procedures completed during your surgery.

If your procedure includes additional facial surgeries, you may need to remain at our surgical facility for a few hours of monitoring before returning home to rest. It is normal to experience bruising and swelling after facial surgery, and you may feel as if your face is being pulled tight. This subsides within a couple of weeks. Optimal results will be evident after several months.

    Dr. Caplin is really wonderful. My mother saw her at the beginning of 2018 for a lower facelift and the results, follow up and care were awesome. As it probably happens, my mother got the itch again in 2019 to have a breast lift & augmentation - so of course I said I would do it too. Dr. Caplin listened to us and the results are better than we expected. We were seen on the same day and the team at CSA remembered us from the prior year - oh we remember your mom's dancing after surgery. :) Yes, that happened...

    Facelift FAQs


    Will i have scars?

    As is the case with most surgeries, there is a risk of scarring. The extent of your scarring will depend on the types of procedures included in your treatment plan. If your facelift includes a brow lift, forehead lift, or neck lift, you may experience scarring. However, our skilled surgeons strategically place incisions in discreet areas that are not easily noticeable once they have healed. To help your incisions heal properly, our team will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions, which should be followed closely.

    Who is an ideal candidate?

    Most patients in good health who are experiencing the signs and symptoms of aging are good candidates for a minimally invasive facelift. Certain habits and lifestyle choices can impact the elasticity of your skin, leading to early aging. But generally speaking, patients ages 40 – 70 are ideal candidates for facial surgeries. During a consultation at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City, one of our skilled surgeons will help you decide how best to achieve your aesthetic goals. If we feel you are not a candidate for a facelift, we can create a customized treatment plan that includes noninvasive procedures, such as injectables and laser skin resurfacing.

    What are the risks?

    The risks and complications associated with a minimally invasive facelift (when performed by Dr. Nuveen and Dr. Caplin) are rare. However, it is a surgical procedure and unexpected instances can occur. Some of the potential complications associated with a facelift include bleeding, scarring, infection, nerve injury, and poor healing. Dr. Nuveen and Dr. Caplin will discuss these risks with you at your consultation.

    What about insurance?

    A facelift is a cosmetic procedure and will not be covered by insurance. During your consultation, a member of our team will provide you with a cost breakdown for your surgery and explain the payment methods we accept. In some cases, we may help you apply for medical financing to better afford your procedures.
