A facelift (also known as rhytidectomy) is a cosmetic procedure that provides a more youthful appearance to the face by reducing wrinkles. As with any cosmetic procedure, the process is very unique to each patient’s needs and their desired outcomes. Typically, a facelift involves removing excess skin and redraping of the skin on your face and neck in order to create a tauter and less wrinkled appearance. When combined with other procedures, such as an eyelid lift, the results can be very effective in reducing the effects of gravity!
Keep in mind that this procedure has improved drastically over the years, allowing us to achieve much more natural results than what would have been possible years ago. Although you will continue to age at a normal rate after the procedure, a facelift is kind of like hitting the restart button.
Some patients are concerned about scarring, but typically small incisions are made behind the hairline, in front of the ear, and in some cases under the chin. We do our best to meet the unique needs of each patient while doing so in a way that leaves as little scarring as possible.
