Face Lift Surgery

Face Lift Surgery or Rhytidectomy

If you are wondering how a face lift could improve your looks and self-confidence it is important for you to know how a face lift is performed and what you can expect from a face lift procedure - if you are bothered by signs of aging in your face, face lift surgery may be right for you.

  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • Loss of muscle tone in the face and neck
  • Jowls
  • Deep creases between the corners of your mouth and the base of your nose
  • Loss of chin and neck contours

Technically known as rhytidectomy, a face lift is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the face. The rejuvenation process is often performed in conjunction with the face lift brow lift, to correct a sagging or deeply furrowed brow, and an eyelid surgery that rejuvenate eyes.

Depending on the degree of change you’d like to see, your face lift surgery choices include a traditional face lift and limited incision face lift.

Each individual face lift surgical procedure varies in time and technique. Face plastic surgery procedures include neck lift surgery (plastysmaplasty), nose surgery (rhinoplasty), face lift (rhytidectomy), forehead lift (brow lift), blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), cheek implants (malar augmentation), chin implants (genioplasty) and chin augmentation.

Face lift plastic surgery recovery times vary, depending on the type of surgery, the length and complexity of the face lift operation, and the individual patient.

As with all cosmetic surgery, realistic expectations, good health and understanding the face lift procedure limitation are important factors - also psychological stability is vital as there no ideal in a face lift. The aim in face lift is to improve the overall facial appearance. Skin type, ethnic background, degree of skin elasticity, individual healing, basic bone structure, as well as a realistic attitude are all factors that must be discussed prior to surgery.

Face lift is successfully performed on patients in their thirties, as well as on patients in their eighties, but it doesn't stop the aging process or turn back the clock! What it does is to help your face to look healthier, and gives you a more youthful appearance. A side benefit of a face lift surgery is that you will experience an increase in self-confidence.

  • Tightening facial muscles
  • Repairing loose skin
  • Improving facial contour
  • Correct drooping skin
  • Increased Self-Esteem

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, meaning that the patient will not feel any pain, or any other sensations, during the procedure. Thus, a check of the patient’s physical condition prior to the procedure is mandatory; the anesthesia doctor reviews the patient’s medical condition to decide the best technique of anesthesia. They might also order some laboratory tests to be conducted for examination purposes.

A traditional face lift incision often begins in the hairline at the temples, continues around the ear and ends in the lower scalp. Fat may be sculpted or redistributed from the face, jowls and neck. Underlying tissue is repositioned, commonly the deeper layers of the face and the muscles are also lifted. Skin is re-draped over the uplifted contours and excess skin is trimmed away. A second incision under the chin may be necessary to further improve an aging neck. Sutures or skin adhesives close the incisions.
