A facelift or rhytidectomy is an operation that is performed to rejuvenate the face as it ages. Depending on the age of the patient and the amount of rejuvenation that is expected, the procedure may be more or less involved. Some patients have areas of the face that tend to be more of a concern to them than other areas. The face is generally divided into thirds, the upper, middle, and lower face. Depending on which of these areas may be the focus, a combination of these operations may be performed.

Incisions are made around the ear. Incisions may vary depending on the surgeon and the needs of the patient.

The skin is lifted off of the deeper structures and bone through the incisions using a specially designed surgical instrument.

The skin is carefully retracted and the underlying tissue is tightened using internal sutures.

Excess skin is cut away from the appropriate areas.

The skin is closed with sutures. Sometimes staples may be used in the incisions around the hairline. The staples are easy to place and remove as the incisions heal.

The patient may be placed in a compression garment. Compression garments are an important part of the recovery process, keeping the tissue together, and providing comfort and support. Compression garments also minimize swelling by helping to prevent fluid buildup. The length that this may be applied will vary depending on the patient and the preference. Surgical drains may also be used to help remove excess fluid build-up. Bruising and swelling may last for two weeks. It may be a month or more before the patient can return to full activities.
