A FACELIFT, OR RHYTIDECTOMY, IS A SURGICAL PROCEDURE TO IMPROVE VISIBLE SIGNS OF AGING IN THE FACE AND NECK.
Certain women and men age more gracefully than others. Often there’s more to the story than just “good genes,” many patients owe their vibrant youthful looks to face lift surgery. You might be surprised to learn how many people from the United States, Europe, and Latin America have rejuvenated their face and erased years from their look with face lift surgery. When you look younger, it’s hard not to feel younger too.
A FACIAL RENEWAL
At Premium Care Plastic Surgery in Colombia, our plastic surgeons work compassionately with each patient to customize a plan for their facial rejuvenation. They believe that each patient has distinct goals, unique anatomy, and varied life situations that must be incorporated into an individual, custom plan.
A facelift, or rhytidectomy, improves the appearance of the lower two-thirds of the face by tightening sagging facial muscles, smoothing wrinkled skin, and removing excess fat. This procedure is often combined with a neck lift for improvements under the chin. The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, but can be performed using local anesthesia with sedation. Facelift surgery usually takes between 2 to 5 hours to complete depending on the extent of the procedure.
ABOUT COMPREHENSIVE FACIAL PLASTIC SURGERY IN CARTAGENA, COLOMBIA
Various parts of the face in an individual age differently. One patient may look older due to sagging eyelids, jowls, and neck while another patient complains of a heavy brow, sagging cheeks, and fine wrinkles around the mouth. Our plastic surgeons at Premium Care have extensive training in the full array of plastic surgery options available for facial rejuvenation.
Changes around the eyes are some of the earliest evidence that occur in the face showing signs of the aging process. The changes are influenced by eyebrow position, eyelid anatomy, genetics, sun exposure and smoking. As noted in the discussion on brow lift it is important to have the eyebrow in the right position in order to get the best results with eyelid surgery.
For every patient, we do a complete facial analysis and discuss treatment options with the patient, both surgical and nonsurgical. Together with the patient, we come up with a comprehensive facial rejuvenation plan, and can often perform procedures together if more then one is desired.
Many of our patients from the United States, Europe, and Latin America often want to combine their facelift procedure with other facial sculpting procedures. Rejuvenation procedures typically performed in conjunction with a facelift lift include:
- Botox and Fillers
- Forehead Lift
- Eyelid Surgery
- Neck lift

- Facial liposuction to neck and jawline
- Brow lift surgery to raise a heavy brow
- Skin resurfacing techniques
