Who is a candidate for Facelift Miami Surgery?
Anyone who sees a facelift as a means of refreshing and rejuvenating their appearance may be a good candidate for a facelift. There are many types, methods and techniques for a facelift surgery, and your consultation with a plastic surgeon will allow you to discuss the options that are appropriate for you.
What is involved in a facelift procedure?
Your facelift procedure is usually done in hospital under general anesthesia.
The facelift procedure is constantly evolving. The procedure has changed from its roots of simple lifting and tightening of the skin to more complex tissue, skin and muscle lifting. Today, many different surgical options exist, with results that are consistently reliable and long-lasting.
All facelifts use discreet and inconspicuous incisions to remove excess skin and tighten the underlying structures. The typical facelift procedure is performed through incisions around the ear, either in front of, behind or both. In some cases, the incisions may extend into the scalp.

Through these incisions, your muscles are tightened and liposuction of your neck and jowls may be performed. Excess skin is then either removed or repositioned.
The outcome and your final result is a reversal of the effects of gravity, restoring a more youthful, rejuvenated and fresh contour to your face.
Recovery from Rhytidectomy
It is important to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions following your facelift or rhytidectomy. Bruising and swelling are common but should disappear within a couple of weeks. Some residual swelling may last several months, after which time you can see the final result of your new completely rejuvenated face.
