How Does Rhytidectomy Work?
Rhytidectomy (or face/neck lift) can provide a more youthful appearance by removing excess skin and supporting the deeper layers of the face.
How To Know If You Need A Facelift?
As the face and neck age, gravity and sun damage create deep creases in the face, the corners of the mouth can droop and appear sad, jowls can develop which blunt the jawline and excess skin in the neck give the appearance that doesn’t reflect how youthful patients feel.
Your Rhytidectomy Procedure With Dr. Steitz
Facelift is often combined with fat transfer to the face to optimize the result and may be combined with eyelid rejuvenation if desired. The procedure is done in a surgical suite under varying levels of anesthesia, depending on what Dr. Jeffrey Steitz feels the patient’s needs after his analysis. A variety of techniques can be utilized and are dependent on a patient’s aesthetic ideals and goals of treatment. These include:
- Less invasive lifts
- Isolated neck lift
- More aggressive full facial rejuvenation.
