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.
"I was a little nervous about having Dr. Sanchez do my breast reduction/lift and lipo because he looks SO young. But I trusted my gut and it was the best decision I've ever made. My neck and back pain is already GONE (I was on three oxycodone per day with my pain management doctor); I love how well proportioned my shape is now; & the scarring is minimal (only 2 weeks out). His bedside manner before & after surgery is amazing. Adore him and his staff -- I will trust him with any work I need done in the future! "- A.W. / Google / Mar 26, 2017

"Best plastic surgeon around ! - Where do I start? Dr. Sanchez is the best plastic surgeon in Baton Rouge, Louisiana!!! His beside manner, knowledge and his love for his patients is like no other !! I was not asked to write a review I just knew I needed to share my experience that I had on 2/10/17 with others so that others can see for themselves! I visited Dr. Sandchez office because I was experiencing pain in my adbodom after seeing another plastic surgeon from another state that preformed a Smart Liposuction procedure and he didn't hesitate to take care of me. He told me to come in and he would take care of it ! And he did just that. He drained 350cc of fluid from my stomach and immediately all of my pain went away ! I would definitely recommend him for all of your plastic surgery needs!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Feb 11, 2017

"Went to Dr Sanchez for Botox. The staff was nice and welcoming. Dr Sanchez did my Botox himself and took time to explain what he was doing and how many units I needed. Very happy with the results. Will definitely go back."- M.K. / Google / Dec 15, 2016
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.
