The face is one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Time, genetics, and sun damage can all impact the skin and create wrinkles and imperfections. Many Arkansas men and women feel self-conscious when they develop loose skin or saggy jowls. These changes leave your face looking older than you feel—but facelift surgery corrects these problems.
Dr. Eric Wright and his Little Rock plastic surgery team are proud to help patients take years off their appearance. By lifting loose tissue and contouring the face, you can instantly look like a younger version of yourself. Dr. Wright’s artistic eye and surgical expertise create satisfying, natural-looking results. You no longer have to feel insecure before weddings or class reunions. Your rejuvenated face will reflect your true self.

What is a facelift?
Facelift surgery is an aesthetic procedure that reduces the signs of aging along the face and neck. Loose, sagging skin or drooping muscles can change the shape of the face. Facelift surgery corrects this sagging by tightening skin and readjusting underlying facial tissues.
During surgery, Dr. Wright can make improvements such as:
- Lifting sagging cheeks
- Creating a defined jawline
- Adding volume to the cheeks
- Reducing folds and wrinkles around the mouth
During your private consultation, Dr. Wright will carefully examine your face and determine the best approach to your surgery. It’s common to perform additional procedures to allow for complete facial rejuvenation.
What procedures are commonly combined with a facelift?
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can be performed to the upper and lower eyelids to remove excess skin and reposition and shape the surrounding fat. Another common procedure is to restore volume lost with aging with fat grafting techniques. Using special techniques, fat can be harvested from another area of the body and placed strategically to areas where volume has been lost. Finally, skin resurfacing with lasers or chemical peels can be combined with a facelift procedure to address fine skin lines.
How do I know if I’m ready for a facelift?
Ideal facelift candidates are healthy men and women who are unhappy with the laxity of facial and neck skin or changes that have occurred with aging. You may be ready for a facelift if you struggle with deep lines and wrinkles that nonsurgical treatments can’t fix. Facelift surgery is a long-lasting solution that creates comprehensive results.

How is facelift surgery performed?
Facelift surgery begins with an incision that extends from the temple to behind the ear. This incision gives Dr. Wright access to the deep facial tissues underneath. He carefully adjusts these delicate tissues and lifts them to a higher position, and then tightens or trims any loose skin. He may also make a second incision under the chin to address aging issues along the jaw and neck.
Once the muscles and tissues are lifted, the skin is redraped, and incisions are closed with sutures. Standard facelift surgery may take 3 to 6 hours, depending on the extent of your procedure and the number of additional areas treated.

How long is recovery after facelift surgery?
Immediately after facelift surgery, you’ll need a family member or loved one to drive you home. To minimize swelling, keep your head elevated during the first 10 days. Most patients return to work after 10 to 14 days and can exercise after 1 month. Your results will continue to develop over the next several months and become increasingly noticeable over time.
Will my facelift procedure leave a scar?
Like any surgery, a facelift will leave a scar. However, the lines are very fine and concealed in the hairline and natural creases of the face. Facelift scars are easily hidden and typically become unnoticeable. Dr. Wright is very careful during surgery and places your incisions in strategic locations.
