Face lift or rhytidectomy is an operation that deals with the problem of skin laxity due to the constant effect of gravity. During the operation, skin and face muscles are being mobilized, the excessive skin is carefully excised and the face gets a younger look.
Incisions are placed carefully in front and behind the ears and are barely visible. Local or general anesthesia is required, according to the extent of the problem and approximately a week off everyday activities is required.
One can also treat neck skin laxity at the same time. It can be combined, when so indicated, with other surgical operations (such as blepharoplasty, CO2 Laser resurfacing, injected implants, Botulinum toxin etc.)
