What is a Facelift?


facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the face and neck. There are various reasons to consider a facelift over other types of non invasive aesthetic procedures. When skin laxity of the face begins to sag and distort the cheeks and jawline, Facelifts address jowls in ways non-surgical options cannot. As patients begin to notice deepening of wrinkles and folds from the nose to mouth, a facelift is their best option. Over time fat in the face displaces and facial muscles become lax making a facelift the reasonable solution. Loose skin and fat of the neck is also addressed in a facelift procedure.

Who is a Good Candidate for Facelift Surgery?


Good candidates for a facelift include healthy individuals who do not have medical conditions that impair healing, nonsmokers, and patients with realistic expectations.

Facelifts are considered a restorative procedure, meaning that a  facelift is not intended to alter your fundamental appearance. It is important to note that a facelift cannot stop the aging process.

Facelifts are surgery however, minimally invasive rejuvenation treatments such as injectables and lasers cannot replicate similar results. Injectables and lasers may nonetheless postpone a facelift as well as complement and enhance the results of surgery.

A Modern Facelift for Modern Results


During a modern facelift much more than a bit of excess skin is removed. The key to obtaining lasting, natural-looking facelift results is the surgical repositioning of facial muscles. All this work below the skin translates into a more lasting, lifted appearance when the skin is placed in its new position.  

The goal is to give the patient a younger-looking, more refreshed appearance. The addition of fat grafting restores the volume naturally lost in an aging face over time. This approach leaves patients looking refreshed, not “pulled.” When muscle repositioning, fat grafting and strategic skin excision is paired with rejuvenating lasers and injectables, a truly renewed appearance is possible.

It’s always best to schedule a consultation with Dr Ramirez Gavidia so that you can be examined. During your consult we will give you the facts about what a facelift can and cannot do to restore your facial features to a more youthful appearance.
