Facelift: Rhytidectomy

A facelift rejuvenates the neck, jaws, cheeks, eyes, and the forehead by re-draping the facial skin, tightening muscles, and reversing the effects of gravity, aging, and loss of facial fullness or volume. This gives you a firm neck and cheeks, with well defined jaw lines, and smoother skin.

The word Rhytidectomy comes from the Greek word "rhytis," which means "wrinkle," and "ektome," which means excision. It actually refers to a group of procedures from the cheeks down to the neck which, in the hands of a skilled plastic surgeon won't make you look "different" as much as they'll make you appear more relaxed, rested and rejuvenated.
Thousands of American men and women undergo facelift surgery every year. It is the second most common cosmetic surgery procedure performed among mature men and women – following Blepharoplasty/Eyelid Surgery. In fact, almost always a facelift is combined with another facial plastic surgery procedure such as eyelid tuck or blepharoplasty, forehead or brow lift, cheek or chin implants, rhinoplasty or nose job.

Dr. Huang is a Board Certified Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon with experience in all aspects of Facial Cosmetic Surgery including facelift surgery, eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty, neck lift, forehead or brow lift, rhinoplasty, etc. She is skilled and experienced in all techniques of facial rejuvenation surgery and strives to create a face that is natural and normal looking. During your consultation she will discuss all details including: if you are a good candidate, surgical options and techniques, potential risks and complications of surgery, pre- and post-operative instructions, recovery course, as well as what to expect after surgery. At that time Dr. Huang will also show you before-and-after pictures of other patients with facelifts, who might be similar to you.
