What Goes into a Facelift?

Known in the surgical world as a rhytidectomy, a Facelift is used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and other signs of aging on facial skin. When undergoing a facelift at our cosmetic surgery center in Fort Lauderdale, Dr. Zoran’s patients can expect to look younger than their current age; you will be able to confidently leave with significant improvements in your new, rejuvenated facial skin. Depending on your aesthetic goals, you can choose from three different dynamics: a traditional facelift, limited incision facelift, or a neck lift.

What Happens During a Traditional Facelift?

During a traditional facelift, an incision is made at the hairline starting at the temples, continuing around the ear, and ending in the lower scalp. The tissue is repositioned, and layers of the face and muscles are lifted. The lifting and tightening of the underlying muscles in the face will help to rejuvenate the facial structure. Excess pockets of fat and skin are removed.

How Long Does a Facelift Last?

While any cosmetic procedure can fade over time, the natural functions that occur around the face will continue after facelift surgery. There are several factors that come into play when considering how long your facelift will last.


Patients with darker and healthier skin tend to exhibit longer-lasting results of a facelift than those who have fairer skin. Patients who are younger than 60 years old also tend to enjoy the results of a facelift for a longer period of time.


Diet, exercise, and skin care routines have a significant impact on how long your facelift will last. Our patients who have undergone this type of plastic surgery in Fort Lauderdale who live a generally healthy lifestyle have experienced a more youthful appearance for longer than those who do not follow a healthy lifestyle.
