A facelift, also called a rhytidectomy, is an amazing way to deal with some of the most common signs of aging in the face. This is a classic cosmetic surgery procedure that has been used for years with great success in thousands of patients. Although it is mainly used by patients in their 50s and 60s, it can also be used in younger patients as well as in older patients, as long as individuals still have moderately good skin tone to allow for good healing.
A facelift focuses mainly on the mid and lower face and is used primarily to correct deep lines and wrinkles and remove sagging skin and other tissues. It can also improve the look of the chin if jowls are present and can correct a double chin. If your skin has softened and relaxed due to age and you are looking for a younger and more toned look, you may be a great candidate for a facelift with Dr. Steven Dayan. Call us today to learn more! You may also want to consider adding a brow lift or neck lift to the procedure for the most obvious changes.
To experience the best results from a facelift, you should be generally healthy before the surgery and should not have a chronic or acute illness that would make recovery difficult. Additionally, if you smoke, you should give this up, because smoking significantly slows down recovery. Finally, you should have a positive outlook and realistic expectations for the surgery. While a facelift can make you appear younger and may raise your confidence level, it is not going to change your life or change how people treat you. However, you may find that a younger appearance opens up more doors for you in your social or work life.
A facelift is a surgical procedure that requires general anesthesia for your safety and comfort. Once you are properly sedated, our surgeon will make incisions around the temples, ears, and hairline, depending on what areas of your face need to be addressed.
