Faces in their forties and fifties start to show the effects of gravity – more lines, less facial muscle tone and sagging jowls. A good face lift, also known as a rhytidectomy, can easily reverse these signs of aging, leaving your face looking refreshed, healthy and younger. It can make you look and feel five to ten years younger. No wonder it’s the most famous procedure in plastic surgery.
Many people still believe that these procedures don’t work and that having one makes you look plastic and unnatural. Others think they are only for the rich and famous or that the procedure needs to be repeated, over and over again.
With advances in surgical technique, the results of today’s lift procedure lasts a long time, anywhere from five to ten years. Many people have repeat procedures with great success. Surgeons have learned how to tighten not only the skin but the underlying muscle as well, and also know how to remove excess fat from jowls, cheeks, and necks with liposuction.
A basic rhytidectomy surgery in Newport Beach takes four to five hours. It’s done at a plastic surgery center under general or local anesthesia. You can expect to be back on your normal schedule in about a week, although sun exposure should be limited for several months after surgery. Your new face needs about three weeks to heal fully. Some small scars are unavoidable, but they are normally completely hidden and continue to fade over time.
