The facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgery designed to reduce or eliminate signs of aging, including wrinkles and loose skin, in the face and neck for a more elevated aesthetic. Using incisions discreetly placed near the hairline or ears, the facial structures are meticulously adjusted, and fat grafting may be used to restore lost volume. This procedure skillfully addresses wrinkles, fine lines, deep creases, and lost volume by tightening both the skin and deeper tissues.

A facelift is a great option for women and men who want to address significant signs of aging in their face, including wrinkles, creases, and volume loss. Ideal candidates must have sufficient skin elasticity, which typically means they may be in their 40s to 60s. Facelift patients should be in generally good health, free from any chronic health concerns that could hinder healing, and be non-smokers.
Consultations with Dr. Newman are detailed, informative, and private. He will discuss your aesthetic goals and health history, perform an examination of your face and neck, and provide a comprehensive treatment plan to ensure that you are fully informed about the process. Preparation for the procedure may require lab work and the adjustment of certain medications leading up to surgery.
In most cases, facelift surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes about one to three hours to complete. Dr. Newman will begin by making precise and discreet incisions around the face and neck that will likely include the near hairline, near the ears, and possibly under the chin. Then, he will make adjustments to the skin and tissue, and any necessary fat grafting for volume loss will also be performed.
You will likely experience some minor pain, discomfort, or tightness after surgery, which usually resolves within a few days. For most patients, recovery after rhytidectomy (a facelift) takes about two weeks to one month, but recovery time and comfort level will vary by patient. Optimal results are usually visible by around six months, and most patients see results for 10 to 15 years.

While not permanent, this procedure does provide long-lasting results, and most patients have positive outcomes for 10 to 15 years or more.
While there is no specific age, the best time to get a facelift is when there are noticeable signs of aging, but there is still enough elasticity left in the skin to achieve optimal results. For patients, this is typically around their 40s to 60s.
