As people age, their skin may become less firm, and they may develop wrinkles, heavier facial features, and areas of hollowness. Together, these changes can significantly affect a person’s appearance. Dr. Sauerhammer performs facelift surgery for Appleton and Green Bay patients to reverse these signs of aging. She focuses on natural-looking rejuvenation of the mid and lower face. Her procedure addresses lax skin, jowls, double chin, hollows, and other areas of need.

Patients rely on Dr. Sauerhammer for their care because of her skill and experience. She is the only fellowship-trained craniofacial plastic surgeon in northern Wisconsin. Previously, she was a member of the team that conducted the first full face transplant in the United States. As a specialist with Wisconsin Institute of Plastic Surgery, she brings advanced surgical techniques and a practiced eye for aesthetics to every procedure.

Benefits of a Facelift

  • The "gold standard."

    A facelift is the most effective way to address significant signs of aging in the mid-face and neck. Surgery can resolve a variety of concerns and is highly personalized to each patient’s needs.

  • A firmer, younger appearance.

    In a standard facelift, Dr. Sauerhammer will remove excess skin and reposition facial features in their higher, more youthful position. She will also contour areas of need, including the cheeks and neck.

  • Lasting effects.

    The improvement that you see from your facelift will last much longer than non-surgical treatment. Your appearance should age at a normal rate and from a younger physical state.

Is Facelift Surgery Right for You?

Wisconsin Institute of Plastic Surgery provides Appleton and Green Bay patients several treatment options for facial aging, including facelift and non-surgical injectables. You may be a candidate for facelift surgery if:

  • You want to resolve signs of aging and skin laxity in your neck and mid-face.
  • Treatment with injectables is not providing you with the aesthetic improvement you want.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Sauerhammer will talk with you about what you would like to accomplish with treatment and will perform a comprehensive examination. Her approach is to provide the most conservative care that also achieves a patient’s goals. For most people, this means starting with non-surgical injectable treatment.

Wisconsin Institute of Plastic Surgery offers the full line of Allergan® products — including JUVEDERM® VOLUMA®, VOLLURE™, VOLBELLA®, and ULTRA PLUS — as well as BOTOX®, Restylane®, and KYBELLA®. These injectable solutions can resolve fine lines and wrinkles, add fullness and firmness, and reduce the appearance of a double chin. The results range from months to years in duration. Once injectable treatments are no longer giving you the results you want, Dr. Sauerhammer will help you explore your options with a facelift.

What Is the Recovery from a Facelift Like?

Dr. Sauerhammer performs facelift surgery under general anesthesia. Typically, Appleton and Green Bay patients will have two surgical drains in place afterward, which Dr. Sauerhammer will remove when they come for their follow-up the next day. After your surgery, you will wear a facial compression dressing to help with swelling and bruising, which should subside after two weeks. Long-lasting local anesthesia will improve your comfort during your recovery.

Usually, facelift patients see an immediate reduction in signs of facial aging. Most describe the results as a “refreshed version” of themselves. Dr. Sauerhammer will place incisions in a way that resulting scars will be well hidden, and these scars typically flatten and fade within one year.
