What is Facelift

A facelift (rhytidectomy) is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the look of your face and neck. During a facelift, facial soft tissues are lifted, excess skin is removed and skin is draped back over the newly repositioned contours. A neck lift (platysmaplasty) is often done as part of a facelift.

You might choose to have a facelift if your facial skin is beginning to droop, a common occurrence with aging. A facelift might also boost your self-confidence. The lift, however, won't affect the quality of your facial skin. If you have wrinkles or sun damage, you might also consider a skin resurfacing procedure. A facelift can be done in combination with some other cosmetic procedures, such as a brow lift or eyelid surgery.

Why it's done

As you get older, your facial skin changes sagging and becoming loose. This can make the lower part of your face appear rectangular in shape. A facelift can give your face a more youthful heart-like shape.

You might consider a facelift if:

  • Your facial skin has become loose
  • Your cheeks are sagging
  • The creases below your lower eyelids and around your lower lip and chin are becoming deeper
  • You have excess skin hanging from your lower jaw line (jowls)
  • You've lost definition and have excess fat in your neck
  • Vertical bands of skin in your neck (platysmal bands) have become visible

How you prepare

Initially, you'll talk to a plastic surgeon about a facelift. During your first visit, your plastic surgeon will likely:

  • Review your medical history. Be prepared to answer questions about current and past medical conditions, such as high blood pressure. Talk about any medications you're taking or have taken recently especially those that might affect your blood's ability to clot as well as any surgeries you've had.
  • Do a physical exam. To determine your treatment options, the doctor will examine your facial skin, facial bone structure and neck. Patients who have thin, angular faces are likely to achieve better results from a facelift than are patients who have round faces, low cheekbones or short jawbones. The doctor will also note any scars, skin irregularities or asymmetry in your face before recommending a specific technique. He or she might also take pictures of your face for your medical record.
  • Discuss your expectations. Explain why you want a facelift and what you're hoping for in terms of appearance after the procedure. Make sure you understand the benefits and risks, including scarring and hair loss.

Before a facelift you might also need to:

  • Follow medication directions. You'll likely need to avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements, which can increase bleeding. You might need to start taking antibiotics before a facelift to prevent an infection after the procedure. Also, if you're prone to high blood pressure, you might need to take blood pressure medication before a facelift.
  • Wash your face and hair. You'll likely need to bathe and wash your hair the night before and the morning of your facelift.
  • Avoid eating. You'll be asked to avoid eating anything after midnight the night before your facelift.
  • Arrange for help during recovery. If your facelift is done as an outpatient procedure, make plans for someone to drive you home after surgery and stay with you for at least one to two days.
