A facelift (rhytidectomy) can improve your facial appearance by lifting and tightening the facial soft tissues and jawline.
Simply put, this procedure makes you look good for your age by responding to the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and the stresses of daily life. Miami facelift specialist Dr. Rami Ghurani helps his patients achieve a dramatically younger appearance with customized facelift procedures.
Facelift procedures are performed to restore a natural, more youthful appearance without looking tight or unnatural. Rejuvenation may address the mid-face, the cheeks and jowls, and the neck through incisions inconspicuously placed around and behind the ears.
In discussing your options and the result you would like to achieve, it is helpful to bring in a photograph of yourself from 10-15 years past.
A facelift is most commonly performed under general anesthesia and may require an overnight stay when combined with other procedures.
Recovery depends on the extent of your facelift, and any accompanying procedures. You may engage in light activity the day after your surgery; a return to more normal activity may take 1-2 weeks. Your appearance will gradually refine over the following 6-8 weeks.
Proper skincare and sun protection are essential during healing and to maintain your results.
Results can be long-term, turning back the clock on your appearance often lasting up to 10 years. While natural aging will continue after your facelift, skin care and non-surgical treatments can be used to maintain a youthful appearance after surgery.
