Facelift (Rhytidectomy)

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure aimed at reducing visible signs of aging in the face and neck by lifting and tightening sagging facial tissues.

The Procedure

During a facelift surgery, incisions are typically made along the hairline, extending around the ears and possibly into the lower scalp. The surgeon repositions and tightens underlying tissues, removes excess skin, and may also address fat deposits to restore a more youthful facial contour.

Operation Duration and Techniques

The duration of a facelift procedure can range from 2 to 5 hours, depending on the extent of correction required. Techniques may involve varying incision patterns and tissue manipulation to target specific areas of concern, such as the cheeks, jowls, and neck.

Recovery and Follow-up

Following the procedure, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and temporary discomfort, managed with prescribed medications. A supportive dressing or bandage may be applied to minimize swelling and support the newly contoured face. Most individuals can return to regular activities within a few weeks, with noticeable improvements in appearance over time. Strict adherence to post-operative care instructions and attending follow-up appointments are essential for optimal healing and achieving desired facial rejuvenation.
