A facelift, or rhytidectomy, addresses the lower two-thirds of the face to maintain a naturally beautiful face, neck, and jawline. While it does not stop the aging process itself, it does reset the starting point for natural aging. Depending on the patient’s skin quality, a facelift may last anywhere from five to ten years.
Is a Facelift Right for Me?
It may be confusing if you are looking to find the best surgeon to perform your procedure, as there can be a wide range of accreditations and certifications that represent certain benchmarks of education and experience in the field. However, The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) is the only board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) to certify surgeons in plastic and reconstructive surgery.
In order to become certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery, a physician must:
- Have graduated from an accredited Medical School
- Completed at least 5 years of surgical training following medical school, with a minimum of 2 years of plastic surgery residency training
- Pass comprehensive oral and written exams
