Face lift surgery, also known as rhytidectomy, is one of the most commonly requested procedures by both men and women who want to look as young as they feel.
The facelift or rhytidectomy is a plastic surgery intervention to achieve a facial rejuvenation, which visibly improves the most obvious signs of aging, by retensioning the skin and muscles of the face and neck, eliminating the surplus of skin, aiming to make folds and wrinkles disappear. The facelift is usually combined with other facial surgeries such as Blepharoplasty to correct excess skin and eyelid bags in order to give a much more rejuvenated appearance to the face.
The incisions needed for a facelift go through the area of the hair, surround the earlobe and ascend behind the ear to the scalp. These scars, which gradually become imperceptible, are “completely hidden” in the hair and in the back and front folds of the ear, maintaining its natural appearanceafter the facelift.
After the initial examination, Dr. Julio Puig will explain what the face lift surgery consists of, if you need preparation and how it is the postoperative and recovery.
