Face and Neck Lift

A Face Lift or rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic procedure designed to remove wrinkles from the face and neck in order to reduce the signs of aging. One gets a more youthful appearance by tightening the skin on the face and the neck. Results are best to those who have maintained some skin elasticity, though anyone with loose skin on the face or neck may consider getting a face lift in order to improve his or her overall appearance.


The excess or loose skin from the chin, face, cheeks and neck are removed to give the face a "lift". Suitable incisions are made near the temple area and around the curves around the earlobe on both sides. Sometimes other suitable incisions are made below the chin in order to remodel the face. Metal clips hold the skin in place for the surgeon to get the desired effect before the incision is stitched. The procedure takes only two to three hours to complete, overnight stay in the hospital is advised.

As with any surgical procedure, there are potential side effects associated with the face lift surgery including bleeding, infection and scarring.

  • Broken capillaries, which occurs most often in the neck and cheeks that need laser surgery treatment
  • Temporary crusting of the incision area
  • Temporary discoloration of the skin
  • Unsatisfactory results
  • Temporary hair loss in the area of incisions
  • Temporary or permanent Nerve damage
  • Partial Numbness in the incision area

The results are long-lasting however it may be necessary to undergo an additional surgery in a few years in order to maintain the results.
