A face lift, also known as rhytidectomy, is one of the many procedures we offer at the Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Centre of Malvern East, Victoria, Australia. It is a surgical procedure to reduce visible signs of aging. Some effects of aging include skin sagging in the middle of the face, wrinkles underneath the eyelids, and creases around the nose and mouth. These features can make one appear constantly tired and older than they actually are.

What is a Face Lift?
A face lift is a combination of procedures that help people of all genders rejuvenate your appearance by correcting wrinkles and laxity caused by aging.
- The surgeon administers anesthesia to provide you with maximum comfort. This step is required for some procedures like facial implants, tissue augmentation, or wrinkle reduction.
- The incisions depend on what kind of face lift you are undergoing. In terms of a traditional face lift, skin is redraped, and excess skin is extracted.
- Incisions are closed using sutures or skin adhesives, and the healing process begins. Once healed, the incisions lines disappear within the hairline and contours of the face.
How Do I Know if it’s Right For Me?
A face lift is a special form of plastic surgery. It is ideal for those who are reasonably healthy, have a positive outlook regarding their appearance, and are simply looking to achieve a younger, more aesthetic, appearance.
Committing to a face lift procedure requires a firm goal of how one wants to look, and the strength to follow through with their physician’s recommendations to maintain the results of the procedure. A face lift does not change an individual’s fundamental appearance or stop the aging process.
