Rhytidectomy, more commonly referred to as a Face Lift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is performed to reduce sagging, lines and wrinkles in the lower portion of the face. This procedure is performed through an incision that runs around the ears and into the temple–always the effort is made in cosmetic surgery procedures to hide incisions within hairlines or the natural creases of the skin–next, the underlying tissue and muscle may be lifted, fat shifted, and excess skin removed while the remainder is closed to create a natural looking, smoother, more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Some patients may opt to combine the rhytidectomy procedure with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as a brow lift, eyelid lift, dermal fillers, or botox. If you are interested in learning more about your facial rejuvenation options and to find out if a face lift may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your confidential consultation with Dr. Lavinia today.
