Face/ Neck Lift

As we age, the skin’s elasticity diminishes, and muscles can lose some of their firmness. Moreover, factors such as prolonged sun exposure and the relentless pull of gravity can contribute to the aging process, especially in the facial area.

Facelift surgery, medically known as rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed at rejuvenating the appearance of the face and neck. It is designed to address the signs of aging, such as sagging skin, deep wrinkles, and loss of muscle tone, which commonly occur due to factors like aging, gravity, and sun exposure.

During a facelift, a skilled plastic surgeon carefully lifts and repositions the facial tissues and muscles, removes excess skin, and tightens the remaining skin to create a smoother, firmer, and more youthful facial contour. The procedure can be tailored to the specific needs and goals of the patient, whether they desire a subtle refresh or a more dramatic transformation.

Facelift surgery can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures such as eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), brow lift, lip augmentation, or chin augmentation to achieve a comprehensive facial rejuvenation. The aim of a facelift is to restore a natural and youthful appearance while maintaining the patient’s unique facial characteristics.

Facelifts are typically considered by individuals who experience significant facial aging and desire a more refreshed and revitalized look. Consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon is essential to determine the most suitable approach and technique based on individual goals and facial anatomy.
