Rhytidectomy Delaware

Rhytidectomy is the less commonly known word for a Face Lift Surgery. The Rhytidectomy procedure is a popular facial rejuvenation option for men and women who are experience more advanced signs of aging in the lower half of the face. While today we have many non-surgical options available to us to achieve facial rejuvenation like the injectable Dermal Fillers and Botox, these options are not as affective in treating patients with more advanced signs of aging that includes sagging, excess skin. As we age we not only loose valuable fats that can cause wrinkles and are best improve through Dermal Fillers, we also not only loose elasticity of the skin (what keeps it tight) but we also find that gravity has taken it’s toll. The combination of gravity and loss of elasticity and volume, in addition to facial movements is what causes this excess, sagging skin.

The Rhytidectomy procedure is performed through an incision hidden in the hairline and around the ear. If you are tired of feeling like you look tired and older than you actually feel, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Balakhani today.
