The Rhytidectomy procedure, also called a face lift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is designed to rejuvenate the appearance of the face and reduce common, unwanted signs of aging. There are many non-invasive and minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedures available today, but for some issues, particularly when it comes to sagging, excess skin, there is no effective substitute for the surgical procedure. The rhytidectomy procedure is performed under either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. The face lift may include a neck lift with it or other facial rejuvenation procedures to address your concerns and achieve your aesthetic goals. In a typical, traditional face lift procedure the incision is made at the hairline of the temples and wraps around the ear and lower scalp. Next, fat is re-positioned in the face, jowls, and neck, underlying tissue may be moved and the facial muscles are lifted. Finally, the skin is re-draped and excess skin is removed.
