Face Lift (Rhytidectomy)

As the face ages, many factors contribute to an overall loss of youthful appearance. The skin becomes sun damaged, thin and less elastic, resulting in facial wrinkles. Gravity pulls down on the skin, fat and muscles of the face and neck, resulting in drooping, hollowing and skin folds in various areas.

Facelift surgery is one of the most powerful tools for facial rejuvenation. The skin and underlying facial structures are elevated and repositioned to reverse the aging process and result in a fresher, more youthful look.

Incisions for Facelift surgery are usually hidden in the hairline, behind the ears and in natural skin creases. Recovery time after Facelift surgery is usually 1-2 weeks, however, slight bruising and swelling can last for several months.

During your private consultation with Dr. El-Sheikh, you will discuss your goals for facial rejuvenation, and the best surgical and non-surgical treatments for achieving your goals.
