You’ve chosen a facelift because you want to look as fresh, young, and vibrant on the outside as you feel on the inside. When it comes to facial rejuvenation, however, a facelift can do a lot, but it cannot do it all. If you want to enjoy more dramatic rejuvenation results and turn the clock back even further, there are 2 procedures at our plastic surgery practice in Tallahassee, FL, worth trying: eyelid surgery and chemical peels.
In this blog post, we will explain how these 2 procedures enhance your facelift results so you look even younger without any extra downtime.
A facelift is ideal for rejuvenating the lower to mid-face, but it does not address the eyes, which are often among the first areas to convey signs of aging. Many people who struggle with lower-face sagging also struggle with drooping eyelids or puffy bags. These common issues contribute to an aged, worn-out look, so many people choose to include eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) in their anti-aging transformations.
Eyelid surgery rejuvenates the upper and lower eyelids for a more youthful and refreshed look. Upper eyelid surgery lifts drooping upper lids, while lower eyelid surgery removes puffy bags and fills in hollows in the lower lids. You may choose either or both, depending on your goals.

Physician-Performed Chemical Peels
Facelifts smooth out deep folds, such as nasolabial folds, for a smoother look overall. However, they do not address many surface-level skin concerns, such as:
- Fine lines
- Rough texture
- Age spots
- Acne scars
Deep chemical peels performed by physicians refresh the skin’s surface by peeling away layers of damaged cells and revealing new, healthy skin underneath. Healthy skin is often the secret to looking truly youthful after a facial rejuvenation procedure. Learn more about why it is so important in this previous blog post.

Why Combine These With a Facelift?
These procedures will enhance your facelift results without adding extra recovery time. When you have them performed as part of your facelift surgery, you’ll recover from all procedures at the same time and enjoy a more dramatically rejuvenated look.
Outside of including these procedures in your facelift surgery, you can have them each done on their own, or you can opt to have them done separately from your facelift later on. If you are not sure which approach is right for you, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will be happy to answer your questions during a one-on-one cosmetic consultation.
