Most of us have been exposed to the sun, dry air and occasional stress in our lives. All of these factors can affect the delicate skin on our face and neckline. Thanks to modern surgical techniques, a facelift (Rhytidectomy) can restore a fresh, more youthful look.
Our surgeon’s patients often say this cosmetic surgery procedure takes at least 10 years off their appearance and leaves them feeling confident and renewed.
A facelift (Rhytidectomy) is a surgical procedure designed to smooth and firm the skin, while considerably reducing signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening the underlying muscles, and re-draping the skin around the neck and face.
The standard facelift procedure for a traditional facelift involves making a small incision just inside the hairline, following the contour downwards to the front of the ear and then upward behind the ear to the hairline. Excess skin is then removed. The procedure is often combined with eyelid reduction (blepharoplasty) and a brow lift or neck lift.
The main benefit of a facelift is a smoother and younger appearance. Lines around the corner of the mouth are lifted, creases between the cheeks and lips are diminished and skin around the jawline is tightened and lifted. Patients can expect their rejuvenated look to last for about 10 years.
