Facelift also known as rhytidectomy, improves the signs of aging on the face and neck by repositioning loose skin.
The procedure aims to give a more youthful facial appearance whilst avoiding ‘over-stretched’ skin results. The rejuvenation results appear in the mid face area, the cheeks and the lower jaw line and neck using incisions that are hidden around and behind the ears and inside the hairline.
During your consultation with the doctor preceding the procedure, it is helpful to bring with you a facial photograph taken 10-15 years earlier.
Facelift plastic procedures are performed under general anesthesia and at least one overnight stay at the clinic is required after surgery.
Recovery time depends on possible additional surgical procedures. Light activity can begin on the first day and full recovery can be expected 6-8 weeks post-op.
Skin care and sun protection are essential during recovery.
The results are long lasting with an appearance looking at least 10 years younger. Even though natural aging will still occur, proper skin care and additional non surgical treatments can lengthen the results.
