Facelift or rhytidectomy is a plastic and aesthetic surgery procedure to treat facial ageing, which aims to give the face a younger appearance by correcting skin sagging and wrinkles.

How does a facelift work?

The facelift procedure generally involves incisions in front of and behind the ears. Incisions can extend to the scalp and during a consultation with the surgeon, he or she will inform you of all possible techniques by examining the bone structure of your face, the underlying structure of your skin, its thickness, texture and elasticity, and the extent of facial wrinkles and folds.

It is recommended to stop smoking one month before and after the procedure, so as not to hinder healing. If you are undergoing a treatment that affects blood circulation, you should inform your surgeon at the first contact.

This procedure takes between one and three hours, depending on the corrections to be made.

What are the consequences of the operation?

The consequences of facelift are characterized by a feeling of discomfort, post-operative oedema or bruising. The pain varies from one person to another.
