Face Lift

General Information: The face lift or rhytidectomy is performed to reposition face and neck skin, fat and muscle to create a younger, more rested healthier appearance. It can be performed in combination with other facial procedures such as the blepharoplasty and browlift to maximally enhance ones appearance. Frequently these procedures are done in combination as the affects of aging are universal on the face and eyes. The facelift has evolved into several different operations some involving the use of the Endoscope to minimize incisions. Which procedure or set of procedures that will “turn back the clock” with the minimum of risk will be discussed at your consultation.

Length of Surgery: 3 to 5 Hours

Location: Accredited Surgery Center or Hospital

Anesthesia: General or local with sedation

Recovery Time: The patient can usually return to work in 1 to 2 weeks depending on the individual. Exercise and strenuous activity may be done at 4 to 6 weeks following surgery.

Post Operative Results: Each patient heals differently; however following the surgery patients may experience temporary pain, swelling, possible bruising, soreness, numbness and fatigue. The incisions will fade and flatten with time. It has been our experience that patients are very happy with their post op results and their new look.

Helpful Hints: Be in good mental and physical health. Do Not Smoke. Help improve healing by taking pre and postoperative vitamins. Improve the appearance of small scars with topical gel.
