At Moraitis Plastic Surgery, we believe that aging gracefully doesn’t mean surrendering to these changes. A facelift, known as rhytidectomy, offers a transformative solution to turn back the clock and restore a refreshed, youthful appearance to your face and neck.

Understanding the Facelift Procedure

A facelift is a surgical procedure designed to address the visible signs of aging by lifting and tightening the underlying facial tissues and removing excess skin. Dr. Isidoros Moraitis, a double board-certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years of experience, meticulously tailors each facelift to your unique needs and desired outcomes.

During the procedure, Dr. Moraitis will make incisions that are discreetly hidden within the hairline and natural contours of your ear. He will then carefully lift and reposition the underlying muscles and tissues, remove excess skin, and redrape the remaining skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Addressing the Signs of Aging

A facelift can effectively address a variety of age-related concerns, including:

  • Sagging skin in the cheeks and jawline: A facelift lifts and tightens sagging skin, restoring a more defined jawline and youthful contours to your face.
  • Deep wrinkles and folds: The procedure smooths out wrinkles and creases, particularly nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth) and marionette lines (the lines that run from the corners of the mouth down towards the chin).
  • Loose skin and fat in the neck: A facelift can also address loose skin and excess fat in the neck, creating a smoother, more defined neck profile.

Different Facelift Techniques

Dr. Moraitis offers various facelift techniques to suit individual needs and preferences, including:

  • Traditional facelift: This comprehensive approach addresses the entire face and neck, providing significant lifting and tightening.
  • Mini facelift: This less invasive option focuses on the lower face and neck, offering a subtle yet effective rejuvenation.
  • Deep plane facelift: This technique involves lifting not only the skin but also the deeper tissues beneath, resulting in longer-lasting and more natural-looking results.

Your Facelift Journey with Dr. Moraitis

Choosing to undergo a facelift is a personal decision, and Dr. Moraitis understands the importance of personalized care and open communication. During your consultation, he will listen to your concerns, assess your needs, and discuss the various facelift techniques available. Together, you’ll develop a customized treatment plan to achieve your desired results.

After your facelift, you can expect some swelling and bruising, which is normal and will gradually subside. Dr. Moraitis will provide comprehensive post-operative instructions to promote a comfortable and successful recovery. Most patients can return to their daily activities within a few weeks, and the full results of your facelift will continue to reveal themselves over the following months.
