Face Lift Surgery in Central Florida
A face lift, technically known as a rhytidectomy, is a type of cosmetic surgery procedure used to give a more youthful facial appearance.
There are multiple surgical techniques. It usually involves the removal of excess facial skin, with or without the tightening of underlying tissues, and the redraping of the skin on the patient's face and neck. Face lifts are effectively combined with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) and other facial procedures and are typically performed under general anesthesia or deep twilight sleep.
Are you a candidate for a face lift?
The best candidates for face lift surgery are people who show some signs of facial aging but still have some skin elasticity. Generally this includes people who are in their 40's to 70's, although older people occasionally are candidates.
Before you get a face lift, you should be in good health and have realistic expectations. A face lift won't completely change your appearance or make you look like someone else.
