Rhytidectomy Procedure

The technical term for a surgical removal of wrinkles, commonly known as “Face Lift”.
This procedure usually involves removal of excess facial skin. Rhytidectomy may also involve tightening of the tissues and re-draping the skin on the patient’s face and neck.
Women with thin skin and good bone structure are better candidates for rhytidectomy, where it’s easier for eliminating loose skin folds in the neck and wrinkles in the cheeks.
Rhytidectomy leaves long scars, though only a significantly smaller portion of the scars shows in front of the ear. The scar behind the ear is hidden.
Traditionally, this procedure involves an incision made in front of the ear, up into the hairline. It curves around the bottom of the ear and then behind it. The incision usually ends near the hairline on the back of the neck.
After making the skin incision, the skin is separated from the deeper tissues with a scalpel or scissors over the cheeks, chin and neck. The deeper tissues can then be tightened with stitches, with or without removing some of the excess deeper tissues.
The skin is then pulled upwards and backwards and excess skin is removed. The incisions are closed with sutures and staples.
There are some occasional risks of hair loss (in the areas of the incision). With men undergoing rhytidectomy, the sideburns can be pulled backwards and upwards, and that may result in somehow unnatural appearance. With women, a possible sign of having had a facelift would be an earlobe which is pulled downwards (or distorted).
Facelifts are commonly combined with eye surgery (blepharoplasty) and skin resurfacing (chemical peels or lasers).
These procedures are usually performed under general anesthesia or deep twilight sleep.
