The appearance of youth fades over time as a result of the development of signs of facial aging. If you want to get rid of sagging skin and facial wrinkles, you may be interested in a rhytidectomy, also known as a facelift.

Your rhytidectomy procedure will feature the creation of incisions in the hairline region. Once these have been made, it’s possible for the plastic surgeon to lift the skin. Excess skin is trimmed away, liposuction can be used to suction away excess fat, and muscle tissues can be altered with special surgical tools.

After this surgical tightening and recontouring of the face, the skin is redraped. Medical stitches are used to seal the incisions.

Contact us to set up an appointment for a rhytidectomy consultation. At your consultation, you’ll learn more about the procedure from board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Lichten.
