What is a Facelift?
A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure aimed at reducing visible signs of ageing by rejuvenating the mid and lower face as well as the upper neck. With ageing, various changes can be seen on our faces as our skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag. Facelift and necklift surgery can help restore a more youthful appearance by removing excess facial skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. On average a facelift takes twelve years off a person’s age following surgery.
How is a Facelift Performed?
There are different types of facelift surgery and depending on your needs our surgeon will determine the right type of facelift for you. One of the most common types of facelift is a traditional facelift surgery which can be performed with or without a necklift. Many patients prefer a combined face and necklift which allows our surgeon to tighten the tissues in the neck for an overall youthful appearance. A full facelift involves making an incision along your hairline to separate skin from the underlying tissue and tighten the facial muscles before the skin is stitched into place along the original incision. Any excess skin and fat are removed and in some cases a fat grafting is technique is used to transfer fat to the cheek area for extra volume.
