The Rhytidectomy procedure is a popular cosmetic surgery performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia and IV sedation. The Rhytidectomy, or Face Lift Surgery, is performed through incisions made around the ears. The Rhytidectomy targets the lower portion of the face to remove excess, sagging skin and create a more youthful, smooth and tight facial appearance that still looks natural. The muscle layer underneath is lifted and tightened as well.
Take a look at our online before and after facelift photo gallery to see real results our patients have enjoyed, and to get a basic understanding of the kind of results possible through this procedure. Ideal candidates for a Rhytidectomy are in good mental and physical health, typically over the age of 45, have mid to lower face sagging, jowls and/or neck skin and muscle bands. The recovery process varies from patient to patient but usually lasts 4-6 days.
