Rhytidectomy, more commonly referred to as a facelift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed to rejuvenate the appearance of the face and reduce unwanted signs of aging. Ideal candidates for the rhytidectomy procedure are in good health, non-smokers, with realistic expectations for both the procedure process and results possible through this procedure. Rhytidectomy recovery may vary from patient to patient and depend on if any other procedures are being performed in combination with the facelift.
Rhytidectomy is traditionally performed through incision in the hairline, around the ear, to the base of the scalp. Sometimes alternate version are performed that may require a small incision or a second incision under the chin to address issues in the neck appearance.
