Facelift – Bethesda – Aspects of Facelifts
A facelift, technically known as a rhytidectomy, is an elective cosmetic surgery meant to give patients a more youthful face. Often combined with a necklift or eyelid surgery, facelifts offer patients an opportunity to enhance their self-image and reduce signs of aging.
Facelifts are one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery behind liposuction, breast augmentation and abdominoplasty. Facelifts involve many parts of the face, such as the nasolabial folds, facial muscles, melolabial folds and nerves on the face. Incisions are made and then various parts of the facial structures are lifted and tucked. Scarring is minimal and is effectively hidden behind the ear and by the hairline.
