Many Houston area men and women will make the decision to have a facelift (also known as rhytidectomy) to help reverse the visible signs of aging. The term “facelift” is actually a face and neck lift, because the surgery re-supports the cheek, jawline and neck. To achieve the most natural, long-lasting results, a facelift requires meticulous dissection performed in layers. During facelift surgery, sagging skin is repositioned, excess fat, tissue and skin are removed, and the underlying musculature is re-suspended with permanent sutures to make the lift last longer. Dr. Kridel’s and Dr. Sturm’s goal is to have an outcome that appears natural, not a tight “wind-tunnel” look. Therefore the skin is re-draped in an upward and slightly posterior direction to give a natural look to the face. Extra time is also taken to hide incisions around the ear and back into the hair, while preserving the hair in front and behind the ears. Improvements from an MVP facelift surgery last about 10 to 15 years. A facelift does not permanently prevent aging, but it does shift back the hands of time. The person who has a face lift never looks as old as they would have if they had not had the operation at all.
