The Facelift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that has helped many men and women restore their facial appearance to it’s more youthful vibrance and smoothness. The facelift targets excess, sagging skin and wrinkles in the neck, chin, and lower face. Sometimes the facelift may be combined with other procedures such as liposuction, brow lift, or less invasive procedures such as dermal fillers or botox. The facelift procedure, also called Rhytidectomy, can help to create a natural looking result and give a more youthful, well-rested appearance. We encourage you to view our online before and after Facelift surgery results to see real patient results and see what kind of results are possible with a facelift.
Performed under general anesthesia, the rhytidectomy surgery usually takes about 4-6 hours to complete. The incision in this procedure is made inside the crease in front of and around the earlobe and behind the hairline. Recovery varies from patient to patient, but generally most heal for 2-3 weeks before they feel ready to resume their social activities.
