A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a procedure designed to smooth the skin, creating a firmer, more youthful appearance. Particular areas of the face, such as the neck and jaw line, are more prone to depict signs of aging than others.
By undergoing a facelift, the face itself is essentially contracted and realigned, removing excess fat deposits and smoothing wrinkles. Some of the most common reasons why patients decide to undergo a plastic surgery procedure include sagging skin of the face and neck, excess fat and skin on the neck, a sagging jawline, and creases along the nose, mouth and chin.
As many parts of the face are often targeted during this procedure, the actual length of time it takes to make changes varies patient to patient. Usually, a facelift takes a number of hours. This timeframe also depends on the method used to make changes. These methods can be discussed during your consultation.
Plenty of rest and relaxation is required after surgery, as well as follow-up appointments with your surgeon.
