What is a Facelift?
Age and gravity can take a toll on your face. Once youthful facial contours dissipate with a loss of skin elasticity, loss of volume and muscle tone, and deepened lines and wrinkles. Fortunately, with modern technology and the help of our skilled surgical team, you no longer need to leave your youthful looks behind as you age.
A facelift, or rhytidectomy, serves to reshape the facial contours and renew a youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance. This popular procedure can help create a more youthful version of yourself. Incisions are hidden along the hairline and folds of the ears. Excess skin and tissue are removed, facial muscles are tightened, and deep folds are smoothed. Depending on your aesthetic goals, a facelift can be combined with other procedures, including facial liposuction and blepharoplasty (eye lift).
Facelifts are delicate procedures, requiring artistic skill and attention to detail. Our board-certified surgeons will utilize their surgical artistry to give you a rejuvenated, youthful appearance with beautiful, natural results. Let us help you turn back the hands of time to help you look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside.
What are the Benefits?
After a facelift at Polyclinic Plastic Surgery, you can expect to experience:
- A more youthful appearance
- Improved facial contours
- Significantly reduced fine lines and wrinkles
- Long-lasting results

- Beautiful, natural results
Who is the Ideal Candidate?
Generally, patients experiencing skin laxity and substantial fine lines and wrinkles in the face are candidates for facelifts. Our surgeons will examine your face and will make specific recommendations tailored to your specific needs. The ideal candidate is in good physical health and does not have any serious medical issues that may affect surgery or recovery. Additionally, patients should be of stable weight and be non-smokers. It is also important for candidates to view their facelift procedure with realistic expectations.
What Can I Expect from Recovery?
After a facelift, you can expect swelling and some bruising on the face. Your surgeon will dress your incisions postoperatively and provide a prescription for pain medication to aid the discomfort. It is very important you not completely lay down, as laying flat will induce excess swelling and fluid retention. Rather, it is highly recommended you recline while resting in the days following your surgery to promote healing. Your surgeon will keep track of your recovery with follow-up appointments. Once healed, scars will be very well hidden.
