Facelift & Neck Lift (Rhytidectomy)
A facelift may be right for you if retaining a youthful appearance is a priority.
Because of years of exposure to the elements, changes in weight and even your family genetics can all diminish the vibrant youthful look you expect for yourself.
Many women and men achieve pleasing improvements in their facial appearance by choosing a facelift in Boca Raton.
First of all, they take the time to explain the benefits and limitations of facelift surgery as it applies to you, as well as the various types of facelifts, to help you make an informed choice about this procedure.
The Basics – Boca Raton FaceLift
A facelift, which is technically known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves the appearance of the lower two-thirds of the face, including the cheeks, jowls and neck.
This procedure involves tightening underlying tissues and facial muscles and removing excess skin and fat from the face. As a result, it produces a toned, firm, youthful look.
Both women and men choose facelift surgery in Boca Raton for a smoother, younger-looking facial appearance and increased self-confidence.
Ideal candidates are in their 40s to 70s, have good skin elasticity and have a well-defined bone structure.
A rhytidectomy may be right for you if the skin and tissue on your lower face and neck have begun to droop or sag.
Your Procedure, Your New Look
In our Boca Raton accredited facility, a rhytidectomy takes about three hours to perform. The surgery though, may last longer if a facelift is combined with other cosmetic procedures.
Most face and neck lifts are performed under local anesthesia with sedation. However, general anesthesia may be right for some patients.
Either way, Dr. Schuster and Dr. Kovacs strive to create a very natural result with facelift surgery in Boca Raton.

The Doctors Answer Your Questions
It's understandable that you might feel nervous about your consultation appointment. For this reason, we hope to make your visit reassuring, encouraging and informative. We'll thus take time to get to know you, learn about your lifestyle and answer any questions you might have for us.
Here are a few common questions we are asked about facelift in Boca Raton.
Will I get permanent results after having a Boca Raton facelift?
Facelift surgery produces long-lasting results. Because you are constantly exposed to the factors that originally diminished the youthful look of your face, the results are not permanent.
Along with the procedure, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and caring for your skin will help extend the longevity of your results.
You can usually expect your facelift surgery results to last from five to ten years, depending on individual factors.
Will a facelift leave noticeable scars?
As with most cosmetic surgery procedures, a rhytidectomy will leave permanent scars. Rest assured that we do our best to see that the scars are not noticeable to other people.
When performing facelift surgery, we intentionally conceal the incisions we make in the hair, behind the ears, and under the chin.
How long is the recovery period?
The recovery period for facelift surgery is about 10 to 14 days.
The first week after surgery, the tightness or soreness that patients experience can be controlled with prescription medication.
Most patients return to work within two weeks after surgery, even though swelling and bruising may persist for up to three weeks.
Finally, you should wait at least three weeks before engaging in any strenuous activities.
