Rhytidoplasty also known as facelift is a facial rejuvenation procedure where excess skin is removed, and the structural tissue of the face is adjusted through incisions around the ears. This surgery is usually complemented with fat transfer in the areas with more significant volume loss.

Who is a good candidate?

Rhytidoplasty is recommended for those with excess facial skin, jowling and signs of volume loss.

It is recommended not to perform physical activities that require significant effort. In three to four weeks, the patient will be able to resume their routine work under the close supervision of the surgeon.

Frequently Asked Questions

01. Will it be obvious that I had surgery on my face?
The goal is to improve the appearance of the face and offer natural results. During the first few weeks, swelling and bruising are noticeable but will gradually diminish. Following postoperative care will ensure proper recovery and the best results.
02. Will my scars be noticeable?
The incisions for the procedure are placed around the ear in very inconspicuous areas once fully healed. Part of the incision may be on the scalp. Over time, the scars tend to fade, which will make them almost invisible. It is essential to follow the postoperative recommendations for better healing.
