The face is to be regarded as an organ that performs a considerable number of functions: breathing, feeding and living in relationships through the expressiveness of mimicry and voice; it is our calling card. In a competitive world where certain opportunities are more often presented to people with a more youthful appearance, and moreover, the advances made by Maxillofacial Surgery making facial rejuvenation surgical procedures more and more feasible mean that this surgical procedure is frequently requested from the Maxillofacial Surgeon by his/her patients.

The Facelift

Technically, Rhytidectomy aims to rejuvenate the face and neck by repositioning the various components and sub-units of the soft tissues of the face, removing excess skin that has formed “skin wrinkles” and localized accumulations of fatty tissue; it also involves “stretching the facial muscle plane.”

In some individuals, surgery of the skeletal (bony) structures of the face is also necessary in order to improve the “frame” on which the soft tissues are stretched in order to achieve a good aesthetic-functional result of the face. Sometimes to achieve an improving effect on skin quality as well, Facelift is complemented by ancillary procedures such as Chemical Peeling, etc.

The postoperative course

The postoperative course nowadays is characterized by its rapidity with quick return to working life and is devoid of pain, giving patients undergoing this surgery a much younger and fresher appearance than their chronological and biological age, but at the same time giving them a natural expressiveness.

Normally, each Facelift procedure is completed with Chemical Peeling in order to achieve an optimal aesthetic result.

NOTE: In smokers, the healing time is usually prolonged and the risk of complications is higher.
