Rhytidectomy/Face Lift corrects the sagging and looseness of the lower half of your face and your neck. Your plastic surgeon may also address other areas of your aging face such as the eyebrows, forehead, eyes, cheeks, chin, lip, and nose.
Procedures that might be performed at the same time include Blepharoplasty, or Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery to remove the eye bags and tighten the skin around the eyes. Also the forehead wrinkles and the sagging of the brows can be addressed with a Brow Lift or Forehead Lift. Forehead lift can be performed as an open technique or endoscopically.
At times when there is loss of facial volume and fullness secondary to aging, the cheeks, chin, and lips are also augmented with implants, fat grafting, or other fillers along with a Facelift. In areas where the Facelift cannot address the laxity and wrinkles of the skin, such as around the mouth, chin, and forehead, the skin can be resurfaced with laser, dermabrasion, or chemical peel.
An experienced and skilled Facelift plastic surgeon will help you look younger, more tranquil, and refreshed. It is essential to choose not only a cosmetic surgeon who is trained and experienced in Face and Neck Lift techniques, but more importantly one who has a philosophy to deliver natural results. In my experience, one of the most common concerns of patients during a Facelift consultation is to not end up looking fake, overdone, and unnatural. No one wants to have a “wind tunnel” look. You should feel confident in meeting with your plastic surgeon that he or she has an aesthetic sense that is in sync with yours and a thorough understanding of your goals. Ask to see “Before and After” photos of your cosmetic surgeon’s work, and make sure that all of your questions about Face Lift/Neck Lift, and accompanying procedures are answered to your satisfaction.
While you can expect many wrinkles to be reduced or eliminated, not every single wrinkle, particularly the more superficial ones, will be gone. Many patients are advised to consider subsequent treatment of superficial wrinkles with techniques such as chemical peels, dermabrasion or laser resurfacing.
As is true of all procedures, the results of a Facelift are long lasting, but not permanent. No matter how skillful your plastic surgeon, all men and women are still subject to the effects of gravity and continual aging and may want to consider a touch-up in a decade or so.
