PLASTIC SURGERY CLINIC
FACE AND NECK LIFT (RHYTIDECTOMY)
As we age, the skin, fat and soft tissue of the face and neck begin to drift downward, creating sagging flesh over the smile lines, jowls and neck.
A face and neck lift removes the excess skin of the cheeks, jowls and neck and restores smoother, more pleasing contours to your face and neck. At the same time the deeper muscles and support system of the face and neck are elevated and repositioned to a more youthful location.
It can help you look as good as you feel, and perhaps feel younger than you are.
Generally an incision is hidden in the natural contour of your ear, then extends around the earlobe and back in to the hairline. Face and neck lift is often combined with other procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelids), cheek or chin implants, laser resurfacing, and facial injections.
Face and neck lifting is performed in the clinic with a very short stay, usually one day, not more than two. The anesthesia for this surgery is most commonly a general anesthesia, which allows you to sleep during the procedure. When the surgery is completed you will be taken into a recovery room where you will continue to be closely monitored.
After the surgery you will notice puffiness, swelling, bruising in some portions of your face, which will disappear within two weeks.
Staff of the clinic will take care of you until the healing process is complete.
The results of your facelift will last for 7-10 years.
No matter what the cause of your dissatisfaction, you will do much better in your struggle against signs of aging by engaging in combined facial rejuvenation procedures. These will ensure visible and outstanding improvements and allow you to save time and money.
Specialists at our clinic offer a wide range of methods, and we will recommend the procedure or procedures that are best for you!
