Restore a More Youthful Look
Dr. Tracy McCall performs face lift surgery at her practice serving the greater Milwaukee area, including Pewaukee, Waukesha and Brookfield.
Time, gravity and exposure to the sun and elements can cause your facial skin to lose its elasticity. There are several important areas of fat beneath your skin that help provide normal contour to your face. As the skin sags, these fat pads fall out of position, which causes prominent folds and jowls to develop. A facelift, or rhytidectomy, at Lake Country Plastic and Hand Surgery in Pewaukee, WI, tightens and smooths out your facial appearance by "lifting up" skin, tissues and muscles. With a facelift by Dr. McCall at her Milwaukee-area practice, you can reposition the skin and underlying tissues to restore a more youthful look.
How Does a Facelift Work?
A traditional facelift normally involves an incision that starts at the hairline at the temples, follows a course around the ear and then ends in the lower scalp. The scars are carefully positioned in the hair and around the ear for maximum concealment. Dr. McCall may sculpt the fat or redistribute it from the face, jowls and neck. The underlying tissue is repositioned, and often the deeper layers of the face and muscles will be lifted, as well. Our facelifts in Pewaukee are done as outpatient surgeries, with your family taking you home after the procedure.
What are Pewaukee Facelift Costs?
Working with the face can be a sensitive process, which is one of the reasons facelifts are considered to be very individualized procedures. It is impossible to place a blanket cost on your rhytidectomy, but if you want a better idea of what a Pewaukee facelift price would be for you, please discuss your case with Dr. McCall and her professional medical team. We can give you all the information you need to be well-informed about the procedure.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?
It is important to remember that a rhytidectomy cannot change your fundamental appearance, nor can it stop the aging process. But if you are bothered by signs of aging on your face, and have realistic expectations about surgery, then a facelift with Dr. McCall in Pewaukee may be a good choice for you. This operation can help improve the following:
- Deep creases below the lower eyelids
- Deep creases extending along the nose to the corner of the mouth
- Fat that has fallen or is displaced
- Jowls caused by loss of muscle tone
- Loose skin and extra fat under the chin and jaw

What is the Recovery Process for a Facelift?
You must stop smoking for at least three weeks prior to and three weeks after the surgery. You can expect some swelling that may take four to 12 weeks to disappear, depending on the technique used. You will be advised to keep your head elevated for the first few days after surgery. The majority of our Pewaukee facelift patients are able to go out in public with covering make-up after about 10 to 14 days.
