A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that is designed to improve the appearance of the face by reducing signs of ageing. The procedure involves the repositioning of the skin and underlying tissues to create a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Facelift surgery can be customised to meet the individual needs and goals of each patient, and it may be performed in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as a brow lift or eyelid surgery.
The facelift procedure is typically performed under general anaesthesia and may take several hours to complete. The recovery process after facelift surgery can vary, but most patients are able to return to work and other normal activities within a few weeks. The results of facelift surgery are typically long-lasting and can help to improve the patient’s self-confidence and overall quality of life.
