RHYTIDECTOMY (FACE AND NECK LIFT)
A Face Lift, or Rhytidectomy, significantly improves signs of aging on the face and neck by removing excess skin and wrinkles and by sometimes also tightening the facial muscles. It corrects issues from the lower eyelid down to the neck.
Our surgeons are experienced in performing this aesthetic procedure. Also referred to as fascialplasty or surgical facial rejuvenation, a face lift and neck lift help patients achieve a wrinkle-free, youthful face.
A Face Lift can improve several signs of aging, such as:
- Deep creases below the lower eyelids
- Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw
- Fine lines and wrinkles of the skin
- Falling of the brow or eyebrow
- Laxity of the lower eyelid
- Mid-face sagging
- Jowls caused by low muscle tone in the lower face
- Double chin
- Loss of sharp neck contour
The procedure involves raising the skin and elevating the underlying facial musculature and facial support to a more anatomic and pleasing position. Excess skin is removed and the incisions are concealed around the ear.
Widely recognized for their excellence in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, our surgeons perform the procedure on an outpatient basis. Slight bruising and swelling may occur and may last for approximately ten days. However, most patients are able to return to their normal activities within one to two weeks. Before choosing the type of surgery, our doctors will study your medical condition and listen carefully to your cosmetic goals so that they can personalize the procedure to your needs.

Before & After
Types of Face Lifts
At our AAAASF (American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities)-accredited surgical facility, we offer different types of facelifts based on your specific condition that include:
Skin-Only Lifts: Our surgeons lift only the skin layer, along with the fatty layer of the muscle.
Dual Plane Face Lifts: We elevate the skin in a separate plane than the deeper facial tissue.
Composite Lift: Our surgeons elevate the skin and deeper tissues simultaneously.
Subperiosteal Lifts: We address the deeper tissues of the face. This significantly improves the appearance of significant aging in the cheek area.
Short Scar Face Lift: This allows for a more vertical face lift with an intense focus on the cheeks.
Quality Patient Care
Our surgeons along with the supporting staff at the practice provides full support and care for patients right from their initial consultation stage through recovery.
