Traditional Ryhtidectomy Procedure: turn back the hands of time to youth
Facelift cosmetic surgery is generally performed on an outpatient basis, utilizing general anaesthesia. The surgery can be performed in cosmetic surgeon’s office or in a hospital. During the traditional face surgery, the surgeon makes an incision that usually starts around the hairline from the curves and temple around the earlobe, concluding at the bottom of the hairline. The doctor may also make a minor incision under the chin in order to tighten the skin of the neck.
The surgeon may first separate the skin from excess fat and muscles underneath. The surgeon may trim or suction out excess fat in order to provide the face a sleeker look. A plastic surgeon tightens the layer of tissue, referred as Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System (SMAS), present beneath the skin, by folding it carefully. Tightening the SMAS layer lifts the cheeks, firms the neck and defines the jaw line.
Finally, the surgeon pulls back the skin over the area and removes excess fat with laser or a knife. The incisions are closed with tissue glue, stitches or sutures. The stitches are typically placed within the hairline, so they are veiled by the hair.
The surgery takes 2-4 hours, depending on the muscle and tissue work, as well as on the number of facelift procedures being performed. Rhytidectomy is usually performed in conjunction with liposuction, forehead lift, neck lift, chin augmentation, eyelid surgery and eyebrow surgery.
