Dr. Erick Sanchez is an experienced, artistic facial plastic surgeon who will create natural, beautiful results for patients seeking face lift surgery. Using incisions along the hairline, excess skin is removed and the remaining skin is tightened to create a softer, natural appearance. A face lift with Dr. Sanchez at the Plastic Surgery Center of Baton Rouge restores the skin of the face as the natural aging process causes sagging and wrinkles. There are many variations of a face lift, and the selection of techniques used will depend on the age of the patient, the condition of their skin and the degree of wrinkles and sagging that needs improvement.

"Dr. Sanchez is very straight to the point with you but very nice and respectful. He did such an amazing job with my abdominoplasty!! After having the gastric sleeve July of 2016 and losing around 123lbs, I had what Dr. Sanchez found out in surgery was a total of 7lbs of excess skin from my entire mid section. He completely removed all excess skin, a tummy tuck on the inside and even lifted my flanks and thighs. My figure is now what it's suppose to be which is an hourglass shape!!"- R.M. / Healthgrades / Aug 15, 2017
"Great surgeon creating awesome results!! - After reviewing several plastic surgeons on various websites and medical review sites, I was not impressed by the before/after photos or reviews. I then came across Dr. Sanchez's site through a sponsored Facebook ad and made the call. The ladies there are just awesome!

Good candidates for facelifts are men or women who demonstrate:
- Looseness of skin in the middle face
- Looseness of skin in the jaw line and neck
- Loss of volume in skin of the face and/or neck
What to Expect
During the consultation, we will evaluate the patient’s overall health along with their skin quality, skin looseness, folds, and wrinkles. In addition, the underlying bone anatomy will be assessed and a facial rejuvenation treatment plan will be created that will help attain the best results. There are several variations of a surgical facelift, including a skin-only lift, which is reserved for patients with less sagging, a mid-facelift, which address the cheeks and mid-face area, and for those with severe sagging, a deep-plane lift, which addresses deeper wrinkles and folds. It is very common to combine nonsurgical techniques with a facelift to maximize results. This may include wrinkle fillers or BOTOX, as well as a chemical peel or a laser treatment to address skin irregularities on the surface, such as scars, sunspots and blemishes.
Depending on the extent of the facelift and the patient’s overall health, patients may have an overnight stay or be discharged later in the evening. Swelling and bruising are expected after facelift surgery. The swelling and bruising will start to resolve during the first week after surgery, although this will vary between patients. Usually, patients may go out in public within 10 days with the aid of camouflage make-up. Most patients can resume modest activity in 2-3 weeks. A complete recovery from a facelift surgery occurs in about 4-6 weeks. Supplemental procedures, such as nonsurgical skin rejuvenation, can usually be performed at this time.
Depending on the technique used and the invasiveness of the surgery, surgical fees for facelift surgery vary greatly. Less invasive facelifts can average between $6,000 to $8,000, while more aggressive approaches can start at $10,000.
