The features of your face are what makes you unique, but as we age, facial lines and folds threaten to diminish natural beauty. A facelift is designed to rid your face of unwanted lines and folds while accentuating your natural features and giving you a rejuvenated appearance.
A facelift, also known as Rhytidectomy (surgical removal of wrinkles), is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to revive youthful facial features. It commonly involves the re-structuring and re-positioning of the underlying facial and neck tissues as well as re-draping and removal of excess skin from the face and the neck.
Our board certified doctors surgical goal is to revive the youthful features by restoring the shape, fullness and projection of the face and contour of the neck while minimizing visible scars.
Your doctor may perform a series of different procedures involving the lifting, tightening and re-positioning of the underlying tissues, as well as re-draping and excising the lax and redundant skin of the face and neck.
To complement the procedure, ancillary fat grafting may be performed.
After the procedure
The dressings are removed the next day, and replaced with a special bandage. You will be able to go home on the first or second day after the operation. For the first few days you are advised to rest and avoid physical strain. Swelling and bruising usually subsides within 2 weeks. You may experience some numbness, tightness or tingling in your face and neck which will subside as you heal. Your final result will be achieved in about 3 months, however the zones from which the skin was detached may feel slightly hardened; this is perceptible to the touch, but not visible. The ears will not regain normal sensitivity for one or two months.
