A rhytidectomy or “facelift” is performed to address the decent of the both skin and soft tissue of the lower face oftentimes including the neck.

Often times a peel (to address the skin blemishes) and fat grafting (to address the volume loss with age) are performed simultaneously to provide complete treatment.

The facelift procedure is performed under general anesthesia (with the patient safely asleep) and includes removal of excess skin and tightening of the previous laxity in the underlying muscle layer.

This is an elective same day surgery with a return to most normal activities within one week and more strenuous activity at 3 weeks.
