Face Lift [Rhytidectomy]

As we age, many of us desire to regain our youthful appearance. Increased sagging of facial skin, loss of elasticity and facial volume, and excess fat and skin around the cheeks, jowls, and upper neck can make one appear older than we are or older than we feel.

Many women choose to have a face lit to:
  • Tighten the underlying facial muscles
  • Remove lines and wrinkles
  • Remove excess fat and skin from around the eyes, nose, jowls, and cheeks
  • Improve elasticity in the lower part of the face
  • Look more youthful
At the Yale Cosmetic Surgery Center, our world-class surgeons strive to use the latest and safest procedures to give you a natural-looking face lift, which will smooth and tighten your skin to give you a more youthful appearance.

During your private consultation, we will discuss your goals, describe different options best suited for you, and provide a recommended course of treatment. We will also make sure that you understand and feel comfortable with what to expect before, during, and after your surgery. With 3D imaging technology, our surgeons can simulate the proposed outcome of a face lift, so that you can see the results before the surgical process. It also allows us to make any adjustments to discrepancies in the surgical plan.

What To Expect:

A face lift can be done under general or local anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. Once your face has healed post-surgically, you are likely to see natural results and a rejuvenated appearance.
