Kay's Experience With Dr. Mary Lynn Moran

What to Expect From a Facelift with Dr. Moran

Dr. Moran is known for the natural results she’s able to obtain with her facelifts in Nashville. The procedure is done to improve visible signs of aging along the face and neck, including:

  • Sagging skin in the midface region
  • Deep creases beneath the lower eyelids
  • Lines that extend from the nose to the mouth
  • A loss of muscle tone
  • Heavy jowls
  • Loose skin and excess volume beneath the chin

Additionally, all of these corrections can be made through incisions that are well-hidden within the hairline and around the ears – ensuring a beautiful outcome that is also very discreet.

Are You a Candidate?

A facelift is best performed on adult men and women who feel that their outward facial aging no longer reflects their personal view of themselves. Typically, a facelift in Nashville affords greater self-confidence and self-esteem. To be considered a candidate, you should:

  • Be a non-smoker and in good general health
  • Have a positive outlook and specific, but realistic goals for the improvement of your appearance
  • Possess some skin elasticity so your soft tissues can drape successfully over your new facial contours

It’s important to note that, as a restorative surgery, a facelift cannot change your fundamental appearance or completely stop the aging process. You will continue to age naturally, but aging will progress from the more youthful version of yourself that has been restored by the facelift.

How Do You Feel And What Do You Want?

Choosing to have a facelift in Nashville is a personal decision that hinges on your goals. If you elect to have the surgery, be sure you’re doing it for yourself – not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to fit into an “ideal” image.

"I have been a patient of Dr. Moran’s for many years. I was referred by a friend who was happy with the results of her facelift.

"I have never felt pressured to have treatments that I was not interested in… Recently a high school friend said I looked the best I ever have, and in all honesty, I thinks she’s right."

Where is facelift surgery performed?

Facelift surgery can be performed on an outpatient basis or with an overnight stay for observation at a fully accredited outpatient surgery center in the Nashville and Franklin, TN area.

What kind of anesthesia is used?

Although many patients are put to sleep using general anesthesia, a facelift does not always require this option. It depends on the amount of facial tissue to be treated and the anticipated length of the surgery. We can provide an individualized answer to this question during your private consultation.

What can I expect during the recovery period?

The majority of our Franklin, TN patients recover well enough to return to work and most normal activities, including moderate exercise, in about two weeks.

What are the alternatives to a facelift?

Double Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon and facelift expert, Dr. Moran, will assess your signs of aging and create a customized treatment plan to help you look and feel your best. In some cases, this will require only a facelift. In others, you may need an additional procedure to achieve your aesthetic goals, such as:

  • Mini facelift: This procedure can rejuvenate a small portion of the face, along the chin and neck.
  • Blepharoplasty: This approach is specifically designed to address drooping tissue above the eyes.
  • Brow lift: If the skin above your brows is showing the telltale signs of aging, this surgery can tighten and lift the area.
  • Neck lift: If you have excessive loose skin below the jawline, a neck lift may be necessary to restore your youthful contours.

Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation For An Easy Refresh

Non-surgical rejuvenation treatments cannot achieve the same results as surgery, but may help delay the time at which a facelift becomes appropriate. These procedures may include BOTOX injections, dermal fillers to plump and re-contour your face, and laser treatments to resurface your skin and restore a glowing complexion. In addition, Dr. Moran often combines non-surgical techniques with her facelift procedures to enhance the surgical results.
