A Few Facelift Facts

What is a rhytidectomy you might ask? We happen to know. A rhytidectomy is a Greek term for what’s known in society as a facelift. Facial plastic surgery is an option millions of people choose every year, for a variety of reasons. It’s been 116 years since the very first plastic surgery was completed on an elderly woman in Berlin by Eugen Hollander.

Exposure to elements such as stress, sunlight, wind, rain, and gravity all play a role in the way we age as individuals.  Someone who spends their time on the sea with their face in the wind will age differently from those that live on the mainland with less exposure. People are necessarily diversified in their interests which dictate how or what they do for a living in many cases. This, in turn, sets the stage for how their life will be spent which ultimately directly affects the aging process. All that to say, these are but a few reasons why people might choose facial plastic surgery.

Here are a few areas that our practice focuses on:

  • Mid-face sagging
  • Deep creases under the eyes
  • Deep creases between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • Jowls due to loss of muscle tone
  • Sagging areas of fat
  • Loose skin and fat under the chin and jaw

If any of the above-mentioned items are key points of issue you may certainly want to consider us for your facial plastic surgery. The best candidates for facial plastic surgery do not smoke, are generally healthy, have realistic expectations and have skin that is sagging but still has elasticity. Even if facial plastic surgery is not the right option for you, we have other options that may better suit your needs. Once you meet with our experienced staff of industry professionals, you’ll feel right at home. If these guidelines sound like you and you are interested in a consultation, please reach out to us for a consultation.
