Rhytidoplasty (facial rejuvenation surgery)
Indicated in patients who want a face with a fresher or more youthful appearance.
It consists of repositioning the soft tissues of the face in a more anatomical position, tightening the muscular structures of the neck, and eliminating excess skin from the face.
The technique must be individualized for each patient. The mini-lift is used in mild cases, with minimal scarring and a short recovery time.
Balanced general anesthesia.
Outpatient surgery in most patients.
5 to 7 days to resume daily activities. Light exercise can be resumed at 4 weeks after surgery, and intense exercise at 8 weeks.
