Facelift Surgery in Central Florida
A facelift, 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. Facelifts 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 facelift?
The best candidates for facelift 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 are occasionally candidates.
Before you get a facelift, you should be in good health and have realistic expectations. A facelift won't completely change your appearance or make you look like someone else. About Dr. Serra, our expert in facelift surgery.
