Are you unhappy with the increased skin laxity and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles? If you are ready to rejuvenate your appearance with plastic surgery, it might be time to book a consultation with a professional. Dr. Kenrick A. Spence and Dr. Fernando Ovalle of Hillcrest Plastic Surgery in Orlando, FL are available to help men and women look as young as they feel! With surgical procedures such as the facelift, or “rhytidectomy,” our doctor can take years off of your appearance. 

What is a rhytidectomy? 

Also known as a facelift, the rhytidectomy is a popular procedure for adult patients who are looking to reverse the signs of aging on the face. After the age of 30, our skin naturally starts to lose collagen and elastin which helps it look firm and youthful. Over the years, patients will also notice changes to their skin and appearance due to sun damage, illness, and weight changes. To combat this, some patients turn to solutions such as dermal fillers and other cosmetic injectables, but for some, the facelift procedure is more effective at providing the results patients want. The facelift lifts both the muscles and skin of the face to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while addressing loose skin around the jowls, jaw, and neck. 

Who is a good candidate for the facelift procedure? 

The ideal candidate for the rhytidectomy procedure are adult men and women in good overall health who are seeking a way to address sagging and aging skin on the lower half of the face. Patients should be within their ideal weight range, consider the complications and risks involved in surgery, and are seeking a long-term solution to aging skin. We also encourage patients to have realistic expectations as to what can be achieved with this and other plastic surgery procedures they are considering.
