The signs of aging can take a toll, especially when it comes to the face. Men and women who are experiencing fine lines, wrinkles, and folds may feel as though there is nothing they can do to look younger again. However, even with skin laxity and wrinkles, adults can now achieve a youthful look with the use of elective plastic surgery including the popular rhytidectomy.
What is a rhytidectomy?
Dr. Thomas Romo III of Romo Plastic Surgery describes the rhytidectomy as a facelift procedure. This facelift treatment helps in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and excess skin by “lifting” the upper portion of the face along the hairline via a surgical treatments. To perform this procedure, Dr. Thomas Romo III will make an incision along the hairline at the forehead and around the ears. Excess skin will be removed and the skin reattached at the incision points to provide the “lift” patients desire. With surgical treatment such as this, patients can look years younger and delay the aging process.
