Facelift

Rhytidectomy

If you are bothered by signs of aging in your face, a facelift may be right for you. Technically known as Rhytidectomy, a facelift is a surgical procedure that visibly improves signs of aging in the face and neck, such as the following:

  • Sagging in the midface.
  • Deep creases beneath the lower eyelids.
  • Deep creases along the nose to the corner of the mouth.
  • Facial and neck fat that has fallen or has been displaced.
  • Loss of muscle tone in the lower face resulting in jowls.
  • Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw resulting in the appearance of a double chin.

Rejuvenation procedures are often also performed in conjunction with a facelift. Such procedures include a brow lift to correct a sagging or deeply furrowed brow, as well as eyelid surgery to rejuvenate aging eyes.

What Facelifts Will Not Do:

As a restorative surgery, a facelift does not change your fundamental appearance and cannot stop the aging process.

Is a Facelift for You?

A facelift can only be performed surgically; non-surgical rejuvenation treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic and other wrinkle fillers cannot achieve the same results, although they may help extend the time before a facelift is appropriate. Fillers can also complement the results of a facelift surgery, providing an optimal outcome in overall appearance. Facelift surgery is a highly individualized procedure, and one you should only do for yourself; not to fulfill someone else’s desires. 

Facelift surgery is a good option for you if:

  • You are physically healthy.
  • You do not smoke.
  • You have a positive outlook and specific, but realistic, goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance.
