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. 

Staff is friendly and helpful. Stephanie Tracey is personable and takes her time during visits.

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.

Yesterday I had a fantastic skin check and initial visit with Dr. Janiga. From the moment he stepped into the exam room he made me feel comfortable, was extremely personable, and helped educate me about caring for my skin and skin health. I enjoyed his approach of checking me over interspersed with talks about what he found/how I can continue to care for myself. Working in a medical role I interact with all sorts of doctors regularly and can say he is the best combination of professional and casual. Oak Dermatology’s entire staff was also helpful, friendly, and patient while providing a clean and tidy office. I will go out of my way to make sure I continue seeing Dr. Janiga in the future for my check-ups and will recommend him whenever given the chance.
