What is a Facelift?

The clinical name for a facelift is rhytidectomy. A rhytidectomy is performed with the goal of enhancing the appearance of your face, jaw, and neck by reducing wrinkles and other signs of aging. Different facelift techniques address somewhat varied facial characteristics, but in general, facelifts smooth wrinkles and folds, tighten sagging skin and muscles, and remove any excess, drooping skin.

Facelifts can improve facial appearance by reducing or eliminating:

  • Deep folds extending from your nose to the corners of your mouth.
  • Jowls along your jaw.
  • Extra fat and skin beneath your chin.
  • Sagging skin around your mid-face.
  • Vertical bands on the neck.

How to Decide if a Facelift is Right for You

You have ample choices when it comes to restoring youth to your face. A facelift is an invasive procedure, and you need to be sure that this is the best decision for you, your appearance, and your health. Ask yourself these questions to see if a facelift is right for you:

  • Are you unhappy with how the aging process has affected your facial appearance?
  • Have you considered (or tried) less-invasive options such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or dermal fillers?
  • Do you have realistic expectations of what a facelift can do?

A facelift can effectively take years off of your appearance, but a facelift can’t stop the aging process. This cosmetic procedure is the best way to achieve a more youthful appearance, but if you’re wary of surgery and anesthesia, you can give injectables a try.

During your consultation in New York City with Dr. Pakeman, you will discuss these factors and others. Finding the right procedure for you is our priority. We recommend only those procedures that will be right for your skin and facial structure, and which will create your desired result.
