Face lift

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed at improving the visible signs of aging in the face and neck. It typically involves the removal of excess facial skin, tightening of underlying tissues, and sometimes the repositioning of facial fat to restore a more youthful facial contour.

  1. Excess Skin Removal: The surgeon trims away excess skin to reduce sagging and create a more lifted appearance.

  2. Tissue Tightening: The underlying facial tissues are often repositioned and tightened to improve facial contours.

  3. Fat Repositioning: In some cases, fat may be redistributed or added to areas where volume has been lost.

  4. Incisions: Incisions are usually made along the hairline and around the ears to minimize visible scarring. The extent and pattern of incisions can vary depending on the specific technique used.

  5. Recovery: Recovery time can vary, but patients typically experience swelling and bruising for a period of time. Strenuous activities should be avoided during the initial stages of recovery.
