A Face Lift Miami procedure, or Rhytidectomy, is performed on more than 150,000 men and women a year. Face Lift surgery benefits continue to grow as the procedure becomes more comprehensive and complex. Today, this procedure’s ability to restore a youthful look is unparalleled, as surgeons tighten the underlying structures of the face that, along with skin, slacken with age.
A Miami face lift focuses on the lower two thirds of your face. It eliminates lax facial skin, repositions and reduces underlying excess fat deposits, and tightens underlying muscles and deeper tissues, giving you a more rested, youthful look. Today's face lift is more effective, natural-looking, and longer lasting than ever before. Many patients can look as much as 10 to 15 years younger.
"Facial beauty rests in the dynamic harmony of the component features in the face"

A face lift cannot stop this aging process. What it can do is "set back the clock," improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and re-draping the skin of your face and neck making you look younger and fresher, enhancing your self- confidence.
The best candidate for a face lift 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 face lifts can be done successfully on people in their seventies or eighties as well if healthy. Using incisions that start in the temple and follow the curve of the ears around, behind the ears and into the hairline behind the ears, skin, tissues and muscles are all adjusted to a more youthful appearance. This procedure is usually performed using IV sedation.
