A more-youthful you

A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to address signs of aging in the face and neck area. It is an effective way to achieve facial rejuvenation and restore a more youthful appearance.

During a facelift, your plastic surgeon will make discreet incisions, typically placed within the hairline, around the ears, and sometimes under the chin. These incisions are carefully planned to be as inconspicuous as possible. The surgeon will then lift and reposition the underlying tissues of the face, tightening the muscles and removing any excess skin. The goal is to restore facial contours and smooth wrinkles and sagging skin and achieve a natural younger-looking version of yourself.

The specific technique used may vary based on your individual. Some facelift techniques focus primarily on the lower face and neck, while others address a broader area, including the mid-face and forehead. We will discuss the most suitable technique for you during your consultation.

Facelift surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety throughout the procedure. The length of the surgery can vary depending on the extent of the procedure and any additional treatments involved.





Other procedures can enhance your facelift

During the consultation, consideration may be given to additional complementary procedures to enhance your overall facial rejuvenation. These may include eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to address sagging eyelids, brow lift to correct forehead wrinkles and drooping brows, or neck lift to address excess skin and muscle banding in the neck area.

Following the facelift, you can expect a recovery period during which you will need to take special care of your healing incisions. We will provide detailed post-operative instructions to help minimize discomfort, promote proper healing, and reduce the risk of complications. It is common to experience some swelling, bruising, and temporary numbness after the procedure. These effects should gradually subside over time.

While a facelift can provide long-lasting results, it’s important to understand that the natural aging process will continue. However, many patients find that the improvements achieved through facelift surgery help them maintain a more youthful appearance for many years. It’s also important to have realistic expectations and discuss your desired outcomes with your surgeon during the consultation process.
