What is Facelift (Rhytidectomy)?
Also known as a Rhytidectomy, a facelift is a surgical procedure used to improve aging on the neck and face. This surgery can fix loose skin or fat under the chin and jaw, deep creases along the lower eyelids or nose as well as sagging in the middle of the face. The surgical procedure is typically done in conjunction with a brow lift and/or eyelid surgery.
This surgical procedure is performed on an outpatient basis under general or local anesthesia. During the surgery, a surgeon will make an incision at the template and around the ear. The skin is raised. The doctor works directly on the tissue and muscle underneath in order to tighten it. They may also remove some skin and fat. After this process is completed, the skin is then redraped into place and the incision is stitched up. Most of the time, the incision will be along the hairline where it won’t be seen easily.
