Face / Neck lift
A facelift is a type of cosmetic surgery procedure used to give a more youthful facial appearance. There are multiple surgical techniques. It usually involves the removal of excess facial skin, with or without the tightening of underlying tissues, and the redraping of the skin on the patient's face and neck. Facelifts are effectively combined with eyelid surgery and other facial procedures and are typically performed under general anesthesia or deep sedation.
Indications include: Increased redundancy of the nasolabial fold, lengthening of the lower eyelid and jowling.
Many different procedures of rhytidectomy exist, varying in the type of incision, invasiveness and the area of the face that is treated. At a consultation the procedure with the best outcome is chosen for every patient. Expectations of the patient, the age, possible recovery time and areas to improve are some of the many factors taken in consideration before choosing a technique of rhytidectomy.
