A Facelift or Rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure that rejuvenates the face. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and muscles and ligaments of the face and neck begin to lose tone. A Facelift diminishes the tell-tale signs of an aging face and neck. – And as aging progresses, wrinkles of the face and neck become more prominent, jowls form, nasolabial folds (smile lines) deepen and marionette lines appear.
Facial rejuvenation is accomplished by tightening deeper structures, re-draping and excising the redundant skin of the face and neck. Repositioning and sometimes grafting select areas of facial fat optimize results.
Dr. Stile performs a multiple layer, component procedure that is a true facial restoration. This is not just a “skin-only” procedure! Much of the work is performed in the deeper structures, the Superficial Musculo Aponeurotic System (SMAS), to lift, reshape, and contour your face resulting in a more youthful, natural, and rested look.
