Face Lift Rhytidectomy

Aging is one of the harsh realities of life. It brings with it a number of mental, emotional, and physical problems. Because of this, many seek rejuvenation—especially in physical aspect—through a myriad of ways.

One of the most effective cosmetic procedures in restoring a youthful appearance is the facelift or a rhytidectomy. A facelift gets rid of excess skin and wrinkles not only in the face area, but in the neck area as well.


Am I a good candidate for a facelift?

  • You are physically and mentally healthy
  • You are willing to commit to all aspects of the process
  • You do not have unrealistic expectations
  • You have excess skin especially in your cheek regions
  • You have visible wrinkles and deep lines in your facial area

For the best results, it is always important to consult an experienced board-certified surgeon. A surgeon with the proper credentials is a must. Entrusting your body to practitioners who lack the proper credentials can be dangerous and may lead to several complications.

What are the benefits of a facelift?

  • Youthful look
  • Lesser facial wrinkles
  • Tightened muscle tissue and improved facial contours
  • Skin that is much firmer than before

A facelift begins by creating an incision extending from the temples or hairline all the way to the ear. Although there are several other ways the procedure can be performed, this is the most popular.

What questions should I ask my surgeon?

  • Am I medically clear to undergo a facelift?
  • What are the surgical techniques that I can choose from?
  • Can I choose between local and general anesthesia?
  • Will I have to stay in the health facility for a long time after my operation?
  • How long will it take for my scars to disapper?
  • Can my health insurance cover my operation?
  • What can I do to mentally and physically prepare myself for the operation?
  • Where can I have the surgery conducted?
