Facelift Procedure — Rhytidectomy Houston Cosmetic Surgery
If you’re interested in undergoing a facelift procedure, it’s always a good idea to gather as much information as you can about the cosmetic surgery of interest so you know what expect. This knowledge will help to relieve pre-operative stress and tension while also allowing you to plan ahead for the weeks following surgery, as some recovery time will be required.
A facelift procedure with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Donna Rich is always performed under general anesthesia. The incisions required to lift the skin and muscle run from the temple to the ear and are well hidden. From there, Dr. Rich can redistribute fat, rearrange underlying tissue, tighten muscles and trim contours. Other techniques, like an eyelid lift, can also be incorporated into the surgery; with this, the expected duration of the procedure should increase by an hour or so.
