As the years go by your skin and the muscles in your face and neck lose tone and elasticity. That's when wrinkles, creases and flaccidity appear. It doesn't matter how much you take care of yourself, these are natural processes. However, they don't have to be permanent. A face lift is an aesthetic surgery that diminishes visible signs of aging in the face and neck, improving their appearance.
When Dr. Rodriguez-Balasquide performs a rhytidectomy, or face lift, he makes incisions front and back of the ears. These incisions can extend all the way back to the cranium. Once the incisions are made, there are several levels of skin penetration to stretch the lower layers. Sometimes a liposuctions is performed to tighten the muscles in the chin and neck. The extra skin is removed or repositioned.
Stretching the face's soft tissues helps restore and rejuvenate it. The time it takes to recuperate from a face lift varies greatly among individual patients. It can take up to 15 days after the surgery.
It's easy, fast and safe.
