Facelift surgery, also known as a rhytidectomy, can give patients a more youthful look in the face. The procedure can tighten loose, sagging or wrinkled skin in the face, restoring a more appropriate, youthful look. With this surgery, the face and neck skin is tightened, with some removed. The result is a more youthful look without sagging skin and wrinkles.
Many factors cause the skin to appear more aged. In many cases, simple aging and genetics can make a person appear pre-maturely aged. Sun damage and smoking can also cause your facial skin to appear prematurely aged. Most people who seek out Dr. Hendrick for a facelift are displeased with skin that is loose around the jawline. This is specifically what a rhytidectomy will address. However, it does not address droopy skin around eyes or fat that has accumulated around the neck. This is why it is common to pair a facelift surgery with eyelid surgery or neck liposuction, to complete the whole effect of making the head and face appear more youthful.
Facelift surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Hendrick makes incisions near the ear and hairline so that skin may be tightened. Excess skin is removed and muscles and tissues are tightened. Recovery from surgery takes a few weeks and the results are visible once swelling has subsided.
