Lake Mary Facelift and Necklift (Rhytidectomy)
Also known as rhytidectomy, a facelift is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck.
Signs of facial aging include:
sagging in the midface,deep creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth,fat that has fallen or is displaced,loss of muscle tone in the lower face creating jowls, loose skin and excess fat under the chin which gives the appearance of a double chin
Procedures typically performed in conjunction with a facelift are brow lift, to correct a sagging or deeply furrowed brow, and eyelid surgery to rejuvenate aging eyes.
A facelift can only be performed surgically. While non-surgical rejuvenation treatments cannot achieve the same results as a facelift, they may help delay the time at which a facelift is needed or they may be used in conjunction with surgery.
Facelift surgery is a good option for you if you are a physically healthy, nonsmoker who has a positive outlook and realistic goals.
Facelift or rhytidectomy surgery choices include a traditional facelift, limited incision facelift or a neck lift.
A traditional facelift incision begins in the hairline at the temples continuing around the ear and ending in the lower scalp. Fat from the face, jowls and neck may be sculpted or redistributed. Commonly the deeper layers of the face and the muscles are lifted and the underlying tissue is repositioned. The skin is then redraped over the uplifted contours. A second incision under the chin may be necessary to further improve an aging neck.
