Facelift - (Rhytidectomy)

Facelift - (Rhytidectomy)

Facelift (rhytidectomy) is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging, by tightening the loose skin of the face, cheeks, and neck. As we age, the skin and muscles of the face begin to lose tone. Although the Facelift (rhytidectomy) cannot stop the process of aging, facelift (rhytidectomy) can improve the most visible signs by tightening deeper structures, re-draping the skin of the face and neck, and by removing excess fat in selected areas. Facelift (rhytidectomy) surgery will make you look at least 10 years younger.

Usually, incisions will begin above the hairline, continuing behind the ear to the lower scalp. You will be given local anesthesia with IV sedation, and the office surgery is expected to last for about 2-5 hours, depending on how much is done. You may return home immediately after the Facelift (rhytidectomy) surgery, however you will need to keep ice on your face for the 1st day. You may wash your hair on the 2nd day. You will be given painkillers and antibiotics for 3 days, and you will not be allowed to smoke. You need to have follow-up consultations the next day for drain removal, and your stitches will be removed after 1 week. You will look beautiful again after 3-4 weeks.

However, you might experience some nerve injury and skin loss after the Facelift (rhytidectomy) surgery. Thick scars might also be visible if you are dark-skinned. Improvement of skin laxity, skin wrinkles and fatty deposits may also be attempted by other treatments or surgery such as chemical face peels and liposuction. However, risks and potential complications are associated with Facelift (rhytidectomy) surgery and other alternative forms of treatment.
