Athena Clinic in Hawaii - Face Lift Surgery

Face Lift (Rhytidectomy)

At the Athena Clinic in Hawaii, face lift surgery is designed to smooth wrinkles and tighten facial muscles. A face lift can also be ideal for patients with excess skin hanging from the neck or jowls. At the Athena Clinic in Hawaii, a face lift is sometimes performed in combination with other facial procedures such as a brow lift, blepharoplasty, or rhinoplasty.

Rhytidectomy is a highly individualized procedure that Dr. Peterson can adapt to each patient's unique bone structure and musculature. At the Athena Clinic in Hawaii, we caution patients that face lift surgery cannot improve the texture of their skin, though it can be done in conjunction with laser resurfacing or a chemical peel to improve texture as well as smooth wrinkles.

The Surgery

During rhytidectomy, incisions usually begin behind the hairline near the temple, continue behind the ear, and end behind the earlobe. Excess skin and fat is trimmed away, and facial muscles and skin are tightened before the incision is closed.

After the Surgery

At Athena Clinic in Hawaii, following face lift surgery, the patient's head may be wrapped and dressed to minimize bruising and swelling. Dr. Peterson makes pain medication available for those who want it. Some numbing may also occur. Symptoms generally subside after a few weeks or months.

To schedule a consultation for any of these procedures, contact Dr. Robert Peterson at the Athena Clinic in Honolulu today, or read on for more information.
