Face Lift Surgery (Rhytidectomy)
More than any other procedure, it is the “face lift“ or rhytidectomy that has come to be associated with plastic surgery in most people’s mind. The face lift procedure has been performed by plastic surgeons since 1911. Face lifts have continued to evolve since then, as our understanding of the anatomy of the face has evolved. A face lift re-positions the facial skin and fat to their natural place to eliminate folds and lines. Face lift surgery generally involves the neck, jowls, the cheeks, and temples. The forehead lift (brow lift) and eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) can be included as well. The result is a more youthful and restful appearance to the face.
Blepharoplasty, or cosmetic eye lid surgery, is an operation to remove excess droopy skin and fat from bags of the lower eyelids and upper eyelids. The primary purpose of eyelid surgery is to improve appearance and, in some cases, function of eyelids.
As we get older the skin and tissues around the eyelids weaken and cannot contain fat sitting around the eye, cushioning it from the bony orbit. With time, fat will herniate out and skin of the eyelids becomes loose and wrinkled. In some patients looseness of tissues holding back the fat is genetic and they will get fat protruding out at a much earlier age.
Fat around eyelids is particularly sensitive to environmental factors. Eyelid fat will swell up when irritated by allergens in the air, histamine release provoked by foods or during a cold. It even swells up during the night when we sleep as body water re-distributes into the face and we wake up with “puffy” eyes.
Face lift or Eyelid surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia in my office and takes one hour for either upper or lower eyes and 1.5 hours for both eyelid lifts or up to 3 hours for these and a face lift surgery. You may need to have someone stay with you the night after surgery and can usually resume work in 7-10 days. There is some bruising that can be decreased by ice and head elevation. Cost for face lift and eyelid lifts includes operating room fee and all of your follow up visits.
