Face Lift

A facelift, or Rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgery procedure meant to remove wrinkles and decrease the signs of aging. This procedure may be combined with a Blepharoplasty, facial implants or skin peels to improve final results.

The initial incision is made at the hairline, separating the facial skin from the underlying tissue. Excess fat and skin are removed. Muscles are tightened to improve the contours of the face. The skin is then reattached and the area is wrapped in bandages.

Procedure Time: 3 hours

Recovery Time: 5 days
