What Is a Facelift?
Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Ben Schultz, ABPS Certified, provides a full variety of facial cosmetic surgeries, and one of the most sought-out procedures is a facelift. This procedure focuses on precise sections of the face to smooth lax features and lines and to restore a younger-looking, firmer appearance. Based upon your concerns and goals for surgery, a facelift can focus on the lines and wrinkles near the eyes, the cheeks and mid-face, and especially the lower-third of the face including the mouth, jowls, and neck. The method of facial restoration that Dr. Schultz implements will depend on your unique goals, the health and condition of your skin, the amount of laxity present, your lifestyle, age, and anatomy. Some men and women may be candidates for a full facelift while some may only need a mini facelift. Dr. Ben Schultz trained under internationally renowned experts in facelift techniques and is excited to bring these skills to Baltimore, MD. The goal is to produce a natural appearance that's smooth and appealing.
"How do I even begin to say how wonderful Dr. Ben Schultz is … he is simply the best physician/surgeon I’ve ever encountered! He is extremely knowledgeable, cares deeply about his patients, and has an impeccable bedside manner! He provided excellent care before, during, and after my nasal surgery. He is very attentive and always answered all of my questions. I know he has several patients, but he made me feel like I was his only one! I had a few complications after the surgery and he was very accommodating and understanding. It's rare to find a physician so caring and concerned about my health!"- K.W. / Google / Jun 02, 2023
"Right from the beginning I knew I would be in good hands with Dr. Ben. I was really nervous about my surgery but he put my mind at ease. From initially meeting him he was friendly, compassionate and easy to talk to. He was very thorough and answered any concerns I had. You can tell he truly cares for his patients. He would always check up on me to see how I was doing and was available when I needed him. I can’t thank him enough for what he has done for me. Dr.Ben is truly an amazing surgeon!"- E.H. / Google / Apr 17, 2023
"Wow...where should I start??!! I was diagnosed with breast cancer July of 2022. My GYN referred me to Drs. Ben and Michael Schultz (I will leave a separate review for Dr. Michael). From the time of my first consultation until today, Dr. Ben has been a God send. He is meticulous, and set realistic expectations. He texted me daily after my surgery to ensure I was feeling ok and healing properly. He did an amazing job on my reconstruction. EVERY doctor and staff person that has seen my results say, "Wow, your surgeon did an amazing job!" I usually question EVERYTHING I am told. However, he provided information in a way that was clear and concise. and.... best of all... his work proved exactly what he said he was going to do. Thanks Dr. Ben! ~Chevel God Speed!"- C.V. / Google / Apr 07, 2023
"Dr. Ben is amazing at what he does. And, amazingly, he gets back to me immediately with every question and concern. He always has a smile on his face to put you at ease. He and his father are the kindest doctors I’ve ever dealt with."- R.L. / Google / Mar 24, 2023
"Dr Ben, I can’t even put in words how appreciative I am of this man. I’ve been wanting a reduction for over 8 years now, I was at the point where the size literally weighed me down. He sympathized with me so much immediately and set himself apart from other surgeons I’ve met with by not downplaying my pain. I was so nervous about my surgery but he reassured me at every single step, he gave me his personal number for any post op questions which made me feel even better about choosing him. Every time I had a question, I waited no more than 30 mins for a response which was surprising given the amount of patients I’ve met at his practice. As a black woman, anything dealing with medical professionals is scary but Dr. Ben is the best I’ve ever interacted with. He restored my confidence in my body, went from a 36H to about a D cup. I have had absolutely no complications with my surgery, I felt like I was back to myself about 3-4 weeks post op. Thank you so much Dr. Ben! May God bless you infinitely"- M.M. / Google / Mar 18, 2023
AM I A GOOD FACELIFT CANDIDATE?
Most patients who desire a surgical facelift want to tighten noticeable skin laxity around the mid or lower thirds of the face. Patients should understand that age doesn't always determine the best time to seek out cosmetic facial surgery. There are many individual aesthetic concerns and multiple facelift techniques that can be offered. The type of facelift performed will be different for patients under 50 vs. those in their 60s and 70s. The condition of the skin is one of the primary components in the treatment planning process. Another factor to consider is that facelift candidates must be in good physical health, refrain from smoking, and approach the procedure with reasonable expectations for their outcomes. Even still, some patients’ anatomy lends itself to long-lasting results, while others may also need a revision at some point.
