A Face Lift is an excellent choice for most patients who wish to look younger. Also known as a rhytidectomy, a face lift is a very common procedure where the facial skin is tightened and elevated. The face lift procedure helps sagging or loose facial skin, and may help some of the wrinkles on the face*.
The most common candidates for face lifts are men or a woman between the ages of 50 and 80; the typical age range in which the facial skin begins to wrinkle and sag. Although some patients have more than one face lift over the course of their life – the overall goal is always to achieve as natural a look as possible.
Incisions are made above the hairline – near the temple. These incisions extend down around the ears. Through these incisions, excess skin is removed. Then the underlying muscles and tissues are tightened. When the procedure is finished, *you’ll have smoother, tighter skin, and virtually undetectable scarring (results may vary).
Another type of procedure we perform is an alteration to your existing face lift. This is used if you have had a face lift, which turned out to not have satisfactory results, or if you’ve had a face lift which has started to lose its results due to aging. At Utah Cosmetic Surgery, we’ll customize your face lift and make recommendations according to your face lift goals.
