Facelift surgery, clinically known as rhytidectomy, is a procedure used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and other telltale signs of aging, with the goal of improving the overall appearance of the face and jaw. Facelift surgery can help to reverse the harmful effects of time, stress, and exposure to the elements.
To perform this procedure, a facial plastic surgeon will lift and tighten the underlying muscles of the face to create more aesthetically pleasing contours appearance and rejuvenate the facial structure. Then he or she will remove excess pockets of fat and skin that can contribute to an aged, tired appearance.
Postoperative hospitalization is recommended for 1-2 days.
Recovery and removal from the activity of the patient is around 10-14 days.
Postoperative scars are easily noticeable for the first 1-3 months, but disappear almost entirely within a range of 6 to 9 months.
