The gold standard in anti-aging plastic surgery, is a facelift. Between the forces of gravity and the natural aging process, the appearance of our faces, necks and skin, in general, become wrinkled, and saggy as fat pads are depleted and shifted in areas of our faces. A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical treatment that turns back time and reverses aging for a more youthful appearance. Facelifts are among our most popular surgeries at Oak Dermatology. This treatment focuses on different parts of the face to smooth lax skin, wrinkles, and lines to result in a refreshed, firmer appearance. Our top-ranked surgeon, Dr. Joseph Daw, is highly trained and experienced in dealing with complex anatomy and the intricacies of facelift surgery. Our goal is to produce a natural appearance that is smooth and appealing. Book now for a consultation with Dr. Daw in our Naperville, Joliet or Itasca, IL locations to see if you may be able to benefit from a facelift.

A facelift is performed under general anesthesia, although local anesthesia with sedation can be used for less extensive procedures. Before the day of your surgery, our surgical coordinator will discuss and plan your follow-up visits and pre-operative instructions. Facelifts are performed as outpatient surgery and you are able to go home after the surgery. During your surgery, incisions are made, usually hidden behind the ears and within the hairline. It is through the incisions that Dr. Daw will reposition fat pads and tissue in order to restore the appearance of your younger self. Excess skin is excised and the remaining skin is tightened to create a smoother appearance.  After surgery, we will monitor your health until you can be safely released to go home with an accompanying adult. Our surgical nurse will give post-operative instructions designed to maximize your healing process at home. It's normal to have swelling and puffiness, some moderate pain, and soreness, which can be reduced with pain medication, all of which will be discussed with you by a member of our surgical team. You should look and feel better with a more youthful, and lifted appearance after several weeks. 

After trying to get rid of my acne with over the counter products I decided to try going to a dermatologist. They got me on a routine and my acne is significantly better since I have stuck to it daily.

Had an excellent first experience with Oak Derm today. I was seen by NP Emily Schnurstein for facial flushing and hair loss. She listened carefully to all of my concerns and addressed each one of them throughly. The front desk staff was also very pleasant.

Most recently I have had several appointments with Dr. Jeffery Hsu for improvement on my shingles scars. They are on my face right above my eyebrow and I had been very self-conscious about it. Everyone in the office has been wonderful, friendly and professional. Dr. Hsu is highly rated in the Midwest, and I agree from my experience—from consulting with me about the scar, exploring my options, explaining everything, and performing the procedures … I was very comfortable and confident he could restore my face to what it used to be. The procedures have been quick and easy, and I am LOVING my results. He said I’d need 4-6 treatments, but so far I’ve had 2, things are already a significant improvement to where I’m able to sort of “forget” the scars are there. He’s been able to repigment the skin as well! I’m going for another treatment Wednesday and may even stop at 3 procedures, we’ll see. Very pleased with the quality of work and care. I also see Claire with Diamond glow facials to help with my milia, and she’s great and it works very well. Would highly recommend Oak Dermatology.
