More Information on Rhytidectomy

Indication

Rhytidectomy is considered in the following conditions:

  • Cheeks and facial skin are sagging due to aging
  • Neck has lost its definition and excess fat is gathered
  • Vertical skin bands of neck have surfaced
  • Creases around your lower lip and chin as well as beneath lower eyelids are becoming apparent
  • Excess fat hanging from lower jaw line (jowls)

Pre-Procedure

The surgeon will examine the facial bone structure, skin and neck to evaluate the treatment options. People who have thin, long face structures have a higher possibility to achieve better results from a facelift than those who have low cheekbones, round face structure and short jawbones. 

The surgeon will recommend to

  •  Avoid taking blood thinning medications, at least 10 days before the surgery.
  • Avoid eating 6 to 8 hours prior to the procedure.
  • Washing hair and face on the day of the surgery. 

During-Procedure

The procedure is generally performed under general anesthesia, and may take upto 2 hours. Depending on the amount of changes, the surgeon may use either of the following techniques

  • Traditional Facelift – In this, the surgeon makes cut in the hairline beginning from the temple, following around the front ears and ending at the bottom scalp behind the ears.
  • Limited Incision Facelift – The surgeon makes minor incisions in the hairline beginning from the temple to the front of the ears. Cuts may also be made either beneath the upper lip or the lower eyelids.
  • Necklift – The surgeon makes incisions beginning from front of the earlobes to behind the ears in the lower scalp including area under the chin.

After making the incisions, your surgeon will sculpt or redistribute the excess fat from the face, neck and jowls. The surgeon may also use liposuction method to remove excess skin. Then the skin will then be draped over the newly formed facial lines. Tapes or stitches will be used to close the cuts.

Post-Procedure

The face will be tightly bandaged for a 3 to 5 days after the surgery. Behind the earlobes, a tube may be placed to drain the blood.

The surgeon will recommend to take rest with the head kept high and avoid any pressure on the face. 

In the follow-up consultation, the surgeon will remove the bandage and check for ingrown hairs and infection.There will be redness and swelling after the bandage is removed. Exposure to sun should be strictly avoided for atleast 2 weeks.

Risk and Complication

In rare cases, there may be some complications. Commonly observed complications are:

  • Bruising or swelling
  • Hair damage
  • Skin loss
  • Injury to facial nerves
  • Changes in skin sensation
