A facelift (rhytidectomy) treats the looseness of skin and the displacement of fat that happens when you age.
When you're young, your face is full with fat pads situated just below the cheekbones. As we age the fat descends producing the jowls (fat mounds on or just below the jawline).
This makes the skin of the cheeks and neck to become loose. In the past, facelifts only tightened skin, giving a windswept, unnatural appearance.
Our modern facelift restores fat to its youthful location while tightening your skin.
Facelift scars will be hidden in front of and behind your ear. Recovery takes about 1-2 weeks with your final results visible in about three months.
