One of the worst things about aging is the negative affect it can have on your face. If you find it difficult to look the way you want due to significant signs of aging, don’t lose hope! If you are looking for an aesthetic solution that will give you youthful, smooth, and younger looking skin, consider learning more about rhytidectomy. This revolutionary procedure has helped millions of people achieve the look they want, boosting their confidence and happiness.
What Is Rhytidectomy?
Rhytidectomy, or a facelift, is a surgical procedure done to improve the appearance of your facial skin. It addresses excess and sagging muscles, skin, and fat in the face and neck, as well as your jawline. Rhytidectomy focuses on removing signs of aging from the lower portion of your face. It is a popular procedure for people who want to look younger and more aesthetically pleasing. This includes people who are just beginning to see signs of aging as well as those who have significant wrinkles and sagging on the face. Rhytidectomy is often performed with a forehead lift, eyelid lift, or rhinoplasty to get better results, depending on the patient’s desired look. The effects of a rhytidectomy can last several years.
Before the actual procedure, your surgeon will assess your medical history, your skin’s elasticity, texture, and thickness, and bone structure. The surgeon will also have an in-depth discussion with you on what you want to achieve through the procedure. Based on these factors, your surgeon will recommend the right procedure (or combination of procedures) to get you the results you want.
During a rhytidectomy procedure, the surgeon removes excess fat and tissue and pulls the skin back to create a well-defined jawline. Afterward, the surgeon will strategically stitch the incisions, so you are left with very minimally visible scars.
Finding the Right Surgeon
One of the most important things to consider when getting a rhytidectomy is choosing the right plastic surgeon to perform the procedure. Surgery performed on your face is unlike any other procedure. You cannot hide your face like you do your abdomen, legs, or arms. Due to this, plastic surgery performed on the face is highly delicate and detailed. When choosing to get a plastic surgery procedure like a rhytidectomy, make sure to go with a surgeon who has a wealth of experience performing the procedure. Additionally, go for a board-certified plastic surgeon, so you know he or she follows high standards of practice.
