Also known as a Ponytail Lift, an Upper Facelift is a combination of an endoscopic brow lift and a mid-face lift.
This procedure concentrates on the area above the eyes in order to reduce wrinkles and lines in your forehead while suspending the brows in a more upward position. This procedure targets changes in your upper face in order to restore its youthful contours.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Jose Rodríguez-Feliz, M.D., specializes in upper facelifts, deep plane facelifts, eyelid surgery, and many other facial procedures. He and his staff provide the highest quality service and luxury for all their patients. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz can help you find your cosmetic ideal and restore confidence in your face once more.
Also known as an upper rhytidectomy, an upper facelift is a procedure designed to improve signs of aging around brows and forehead, and mid-face.
If you were to take your hair and put it up in a tight ponytail, the result is usually a more taught and tightened upper face. Undergoing an upper facelift is the surgical procedure for this tightened appearance to keep you feeling content with your looks.
In addition, there are additional facial procedures commonly combined with an upper facelift, such as neck lift and lower facelift, in order to enhance the results of your upper facelift. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz can help you review all available procedures if you would like to consider all possible cosmetic options.
Many patients report dissatisfaction with the downward position of their eyebrows and the overall slouched appearance of their upper face, making them look upset, tired, or angry.
If you’re unhappy with the overall position of your forehead, eyebrows, and eye area, an upper facelift can aid in looking younger and more alert.
An upper facelift is designed to suspend tissues that have started to sag from stress, aging, sun damage, and other genetic factors so that you can feel comfortable with appearance again. While this procedure does not stop the aging process, it can restore your self-esteem and help you feel confident in your own skin.
An upper facelift is an outpatient surgery, so you should be able to return home the same day. You may be in surgery for up to four hours. This might also be extended if you undergo multiple procedures in combination with your upper facelift.
Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz performs all facial surgery under local and/or twilight sedation. Without the use of general anesthesia, bruising, swelling and recovery times are substantially minimized. Learn more about the benefits of Twilight Sedation during your facial surgery with Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz. After Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz has finished your procedure, you will be taken to a recovery room in his state-of-the-art accredited surgery center to come out of sedation. You will also be monitored to make sure there are no complications from your surgery.
Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz will make tiny incisions hidden behind your hairline. This will allow him to lift and reposition the brows and forehead into their natural position.
The scalp is fixed to the underlying structures to maintain the results for a longer time. When combined with mid-face lift, the cheek area is lifted to a more flattering position. Once the ideal shape and contour have been achieved, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz will stitch the incisions. He may also remove, sculpt, or reposition tissues under your skin during this procedure.
If you choose, you can have other procedures, such as a neck lift, blepharoplasty, or mid-face lift done at the same time to restore other signs of aging in your face. Talk to Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz about your ideal results and he can discuss possible treatments to add to your upper facelift.

If you feel that you would be more confident in your appearance if your eyes, brows, and forehead had a more tightened look, an upper facelift can correct these issues. An upper facelift will not only reverse signs of aging, but it will also make you look more alert as it corrects these issues.
After you wake up from sedation, it is normal to have tenderness, soreness, and some level of discomfort in your face. It’s also common for there to be swelling and/or bruising. Over-the-counter pain relievers can alleviate any mild pain or other discomforts from the procedure.
While any surgical [procedure will leave a scar, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz carefully places any incisions in the scalp behind your hairline, or behind the ear when combined with a neck lift, so any resulting scars will be hidden and/or minimized.
Depending on whether your upper facelift is combined with other procedures, prices can vary. Most upper facelifts are elective in nature and therefore are considered an out-of-pocket expense. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz provides payment and financing options if needed.
Recovery time varies depending on your general health and if you combine your upper facelift with other procedures. Plan to take at least a week off of work and an additional week before returning to normal activities. It can take up to a month before you can participate in strenuous activities. Swelling and bruising can also last up to a month.
You will need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz if you’re interested in an upper facelift in order to establish your eligibility. You should be in general good health, have sagging skin and/or tissues around your forehead, brows, or eyes, and be a nonsmoker.
