The Face Lift procedure, also called a Rhytidectomy, is performed to significantly reduce those unwanted signs of aging. Sagging of the skin, deep creases and folds, jowls in the cheeks and jaw, loose skin around the neck, and fallen fat can all be improved through the Face Lift procedure. The Face Lift has been performed on both men and women and is usually performed when other less invasive procedures are not able to achieve the desired results.
The Face Lift is performed under anesthesia. The incision in a Face Lift can vary depending on each individual patient’s needs. In a traditional Face Lift the incision begins at temples in the hairline and goes around the end into the lower scalp, sometimes a second incision under the chin may be used. The limited incision Face Lift is performed with a shorter incision at the temples and around the ear only.
