Are skincare products and med spa treatments no longer enough to keep your wrinkles and sagging facial skin at bay? If you want to erase signs of aging with more dramatic, long-lasting results, it may be time for a facelift.
What is a Facelift (Rhytidectomy)?
A facelift, also called rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic procedure that aims to improve signs of aging on the face and neck. Our skin loses elasticity and firmness as we age, leading to wrinkles, sagging skin, and jowls. A facelift tightens the underlying muscles and tissues of the face and removes excess skin to create a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
Dr. Coville at Cornerstone Plastic Surgery can customize the procedure to address your specific concerns, such as deep wrinkles, loose skin around the eyes, or a sagging jawline. Many patients have a facelift performed simultaneously with other procedures, such as an eyelid lift, neck lift, or facial fat transfer. Depending on your unique procedure, we may use local or general anesthesia.
