Face and Neck Lift (Rhytidectomy)

Face & Neck Lift


Here is a general overview of the face and neck lift (rhytidectomy) procedure:

  • Anesthesia: The patient is given either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation to ensure they are comfortable throughout the procedure.
  • Incisions: The surgeon makes incisions either in front of or behind the ears, extending into the hairline. Sometimes, a small incision is made under the chin to address sagging in the neck area.
  • Lifting: The surgeon then lifts the skin and underlying tissues of the face and neck, smoothing out wrinkles and repositioning fat deposits as needed.
  • Tightening: The surgeon may also tighten the underlying muscles of the face and neck to enhance the lift and longevity of the results.
  • Fixation: The lifted tissue is then repositioned and held in place with sutures or surgical staples.
  • Closing the incisions: Once the lifting and tightening are complete, the incisions are closed with sutures or staples.
  • Bandages: The surgeon may then place a bandage or compression garment over the face and neck to minimize swelling and bruising.
  • Recovery: The patient will be monitored for a short period after the surgery and given instructions for postoperative care, including pain management and wound care.

It’s important to note that the specific technique used in a face and neck lift can vary depending on the patient’s anatomy and desired results. It’s best to discuss the procedure in detail with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine the best approach for your individual needs.
