The plastic surgeons at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery in Houston, Texas are specialists in Facelift Surgery (Rhytidectomy). They are experienced in the latest surgical and non-surgical techniques to restore your face to a youthful more natural appearance. Four components are evaluated for facial rejuvenation: skin, fat, muscle and bone. A face lift, or Rhytidectomy, is a procedure for reversing the signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles and the reshaping or removal of skin on your face and neck.
Incisions for a facelift usually begin hidden above the hairline at the temples, and extend in a natural line around the ear to the lower scalp. After removing excess fat and skin, and tightening the underlying muscles, the incisions are sutured. Your surgeon may suggest other procedures to maximize your appearance goals, such as laser resurfacing, chemical peels for surface wrinkles, BOTOX® Cosemtic, Restylane®, or Sculptra® Aesthetic to minimize fine lines on the forehead, mouth and eyes, fat injections, eyelid surgery, nose reshaping, or facial implants.
Computer imaging can allow patients and the plastic surgeon the opportunity to view a computer generated image of what you might look like following surgery and create a plan to assist you in achieving your goals.
Recently a patient said, "I woke up one day, took a look at myself in the mirror and sighed really big. I said to my face out loud, 'Face, you just don't look the way I feel inside! I don't feel all droopy and I don't have a sinking feeling, but Face, you sure look that way!' "
