When most people hear the term plastic surgery, a face lift is what immediately comes to mind. While not completely synonymous, a face lift, or a rhytidectomy as it is medically known, is a very common cosmetic surgical procedure that can give your face and neck a noticeably younger appearance. While each procedure has its differences, a face lift encompasses three common steps:
In regards to the number of available options, perhaps no other form of plastic surgery offers as many possibilities as a face lift. Available face lift procedures include the following:
A face lift can be done as a lone procedure or in conjunction with other cosmetic surgeries, such as eyelid surgery, brow lift, or rhinoplasty (nose adjustment).

If you are considering multiple facial procedures, Dr. Shuster will discuss all of your options, including anticipated results and recovery times.

As no two faces are exactly alike, the importance of a thorough consultation prior to a face lift procedure cannot be overstated. Your face, and its unique contours, will dictate which techniques and procedures should be used to achieve the look you desire.
Before undergoing a face lift, it's important to understand what the procedure is designed to do and to manage your expectations. While a face lift can give you a younger appearance, it will make you look like a younger you. A face lift works with your unique bone structure to help you realize a look that enhances your unique attributes rather than help you look like someone in a magazine. If you are looking to get back to the real you, then a face lift is likely a reasonable option. Explore our FAQs and what to expect at your face lift consultation pages to learn more.
