A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is the most effective approach to treating wrinkles and sagging skin in the lower and middle face.
During the procedure, excess skin is removed and underlying tissues and muscles are tightened to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore a more youthful look.
A facelift can be combined with other procedures such as blepharoplasty, botox, forehead lift or fat grafting to enhance the effects. The procedure is done under general anesthesia in our outpatient surgery center.
Recovery time is typically 1-2 weeks.
If you feel as though you might benefit from a facelift, call to schedule an appointment with Dr. David Boudreault at our convenient Palo Alto location.
Dr. Boudreault will work with you to determine the best plan of action by evaluating your current features, addressing your concerns, fully informing you each step of the way, and recommending the ideal procedures to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
