Rhytidectomy at Boca Raton Plastic Surgery Center


Facelift surgery, also known as rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic procedure designed to address signs of aging in the face and neck, such as sagging skin, deep creases, and jowls. Through precise techniques, Dr. Keusch can restore a more youthful appearance, rejuvenating both the face and confidence of her patients. A facelift can take years off your appearance, particularly in cases where skin sagging is moderate or severe. With each facelift surgery that Dr. Keusch performs, she meticulously tailors the procedure to her patient's unique facial anatomy and aesthetic goals. By skillfully repositioning deeper tissues and ligaments, she is able to achieve natural-looking results that won't appear as though your skin has been pulled or stretched.

Facelift surgery is performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Keusch will make incisions around the ears, in the hairline, and/or underneath the chin in cases of a lower facelift. These incisions allow Dr. Keusch to access and reposition the facial muscles to help bring them back to a younger position. Excess fat in the neck may be removed with liposuction. Dr. Keusch may trim away excess skin in order to highlight these newfound results.

Facelift Before & After

Your Facelift Results

Patients may see their results right away, especially if facial sagging was particularly pronounced. Patients should expect noticeable swelling and bruising over the course of one to two months, with optimal results visible about six months to a year after the treatment. These optimal results include smoother, younger-looking skin; more well-rested eyes; minimized sagging skin around the jaw and neckline; and more!


Frequently Asked Questions

Please feel free to contact our office directly if you have additional questions on facelift surgery.

You’re a good candidate for a facelift if you have sagging skin around your mid-to-lower facial region. For example, if you’ve noticed that you have jowls around your jawline, sunken cheeks, loose skin on the neck, or neck bands, you could see significant results from a facelift procedure. The ideal candidate should be a nonsmoker who has realistic expectations for this procedure.

During the first week of recovery, you should expect tightness and mild discomfort; Dr. Keusch may prescribe a few days of pain medication to help manage discomfort. We recommend arranging for care at home, as you will have certain restrictions.

You may be able to return to work in about one to two weeks, depending on Dr. Keusch’s approval. Some patients opt to wait until the second week, when they’re able to cover post-op bruising with makeup. The majority of swelling and bruising should be gone at around the four-week mark, although minor swelling may still be present for several months after.

Throughout your recovery, you’ll have regular check-ins with Dr. Keusch to ensure your recovery is successful.
