Facelifts (Rhytidectomy)

If you have facial defects, such as sagging, aging, or loose skin, one of our talented cosmetic surgeons can perform a facelift to help you improve your appearance.  Facelifts can take years off your appearance!  Call us today for more information about facelifts, and to schedule your appointment with one of our cosmetic surgeons.

Facelifts are used to improve the appearance of skin in the area of the face, neck, jowls, and cheeks.  Facial issues that can benefit from a facelift include:

  • Loose and wrinkled skin
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Jowls along the jawline
  • Double chins
  • Neck folds

Prior to Facelift Surgery

Prior to receiving your facelift, our doctor will meet with you to discuss your treatment and answer any questions you may have.  We will also ask about your vision (including whether you wear contacts), your tear production, and other factors related to your skin.  We may also discuss possible side effects of facelifting that may occur due to your skin type, skin age, or ethnicity.

Facelift Procedure

We perform your facelift under general anesthesia to ensure your safety and comfort during your procedure.  Our doctor will begin by making incisions along the hairline by your temples.  The incisions will continue down and around your earlobes but will be hidden within the ear crease.  We will then move your skin, muscles, and tissue into a more ideal position.  We will then stitch you up, and you will be able to see immediate results.
