Face Lift

A facelift, medically known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure aimed at reducing the visible signs of aging on the face and neck. As individuals age, the skin loses elasticity, facial tissues sag, and wrinkles and fine lines become more prominent. A facelift can address these concerns by tightening the underlying muscles, removing excess fat, and re-draping the skin to create a smoother, more youthful appearance.

During the procedure, incisions are typically made along the hairline and around the ears to minimize visible scarring. Depending on the extent of correction needed, different techniques such as traditional facelift, mini facelift, or mid facelift may be employed. In addition to lifting and tightening facial tissues, some facelift procedures also involve fat grafting or dermal fillers to restore lost volume and enhance facial contours.

Facelift surgery is often performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation and may require a few weeks of recovery time.

While a facelift can produce long-lasting results, it does not halt the natural aging process, and eventual touch-up procedures may be desired to maintain the effects. Potential risks and complications associated with facelift surgery include infection, hematoma, nerve injury, and scarring, so it's essential to choose a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon and follow postoperative instructions diligently. Overall, a well-executed facelift can help individuals achieve a rejuvenated and more youthful facial appearance, boosting self-confidence and improving overall quality of life.
