When you look at your skin and start to see wrinkles and sagging on your face and neck, that’s when you realize the easy days of your youth are a thing of the past. Wrinkling and sagging happen because collagen and elastin replenish at a slower rate over time, which makes the skin less structurally sound and more likely to sag. Rather than accept this fate, why not fight back with the help of a facelift procedure, also known as a rhytidectomy?

A rhytidectomy can remove extra fatty deposits, loose muscle, and excess skin in the neck, chin and jawline, leaving you with a rejuvenated and youthful appearance.

To begin a traditional facelift procedure, your plastic surgeon must create an incision hidden along your hairline, stretching from ear to ear.

Facelift techniques are customized to meet the patient’s individual needs and offer a variety of improvement options.

If you are interested in a rhytidectomy from board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. JoAnne Lopes and would like a private consultation, contact us at our Virginia Beach location today.
