Facial Lift or Rhytidectomy

As we get old and the effects of gravity and the sun, as well as the stress of today's busy life, are felt, the facial appearance starts to mirrow all these aggressions. Deep wrinkles between the nose and mouth, loss of jaw contour, accumulation of skin and fat around the neck are common features.

A facelift (technically referred to as rhytidectomy) is the deeper and thorough approach for treating facial wrinkles and the fall of facial and neck tissues. Obviously, a Face Lift does not "stop the time clock," but can stop it for a period, improving the most visible signs of aging, removing excess fat and skin, and restoring firmness to face and neck muscles.

Surgery can range from minimally invasive to a more extensive, sophisticated degree, depending on the patient's characteristics. It is the gold standard of facial and cervical rejuvenation, preserving the individuality, traits and expressions of the patient. It corrects the cheeks’ fall, groves around the nose and chin, and the "double chin". It can be complemented with other procedures, such as eyebrow lift, blepharoplasty, among others. It is one of the most demanding and complex surgeries concerning the face and neck area, but also one of the most rewarding because of the impact it has on all aspects of the patient's life.
