Exploring the enduring popularity of the facelift

A facelift (known as rhytidectomy) can’t stop the aging process. What it can do is ‘turn back the clock’, improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and repositioning the skin of the face and neck.

Thanks to a number of discreet and highly effective techniques, a face and/or neck lift can successfully  tighten underlying muscles and remove excess skin on the cheeks and neck, thereby giving a more overall youthful appearance.


With new techniques and the skill of an experienced surgeon like Dr. Vricella of Aria Medical Group, the natural results can be seen straight away after surgery. Take for example these ‘before’ and ‘after´ photographs.


This client of Aria Medical Group had a lower facelift with neck lift. The ‘after’ photo was taken shortly after the procedure was performed and one can see that bruising and swelling are minimal and that the only obvious sign of surgery are the discreet ‘steristrips’ protecting the incision areas during the healing and recovery time. Over time, as swelling reduces, the results are even more natural looking.


It’s worth noting that often the best candidates for a facelift is a man or woman whose face and neck have begun to sag, but whose skin still has some elasticity and whose bone structure is strong and well-defined. Most patients are in their forties to sixties, but facelifts can be done successfully on people in their seventies or eighties as well.
