The most visible signs of ageing can be seen on the face. While there are many techniques to reduce or even reverse those signs, Rhytidectomy or facelifting is the best option when the skin has lost its elasticity and the overall appearance of your face makes you look older than you like. Due to renewed techniques, facelifting is now a less intrusive procedure than it used to be. It is used to reduce facial wrinkles, remove a double chin, and reduce deep skin folds and sagging cheeks. In order to obtain even better results and create more harmony with regards to the restored youthfulness,  facelifting is often coupled with blepharoplasty - better known as eyelid correction.

During a first non-committal consultation, Dr. Fantozzi will discuss all the different aspects of the facelifting procedure. He will discuss your aesthetic wishes and subsequently advise you which method of treatment will let you meet those wishes in the best way possible. Furthermore you will be informed on the results you may expect, possible downtime and temporary limitations after the surgery. You can rest assured that you will always receive honest and professional advice during this consultation.


There are different types of facelifting. A complete facelift includes the whole face and sometimes the neck-area as well. Due to this the face, neck and jawline will regain a youthful appearance. It is also possible to opt for a partial facelift, where a specified part of the face is excluded from the treatment. During the surgery, Dr. Fantozzi removes excess skin- and fat tissue and tightens underlying muscle. Thanks to rapidly improving technology, many facelifting techniques are now available that produce more natural-looking results with greatly reduced scarring. The incisions can usually be made behind the ears and in the area of the hairline, which makes them practically invisible. Besides that, the surgery as well as the recovery period is much shorter. No matter which method is selected, Dr. Fantozzi and his highly-skilled team will make no concessions when it comes to the quality and safety of your surgery. Most facelift procedures are completed in approximately 2 hours, however the exact time will depend on the selected method of facelifiting. The surgery is performed under local anesthesia and sedation.


During the consultation Dr. Fantozzi will inform you on the expected down-time and temporary limitations after the facelifting procedure, as the extent of this will depend on the selected method of surgery. To secure the quality and results of the surgery, we will schedule an appointment for a check-up following the procedure. To further enhance the results Clinic Fantozzi will also design a personal after-treatment course for each unique individual. In the case of facelifting this might entail the advice to undergo several connective tissue massage or lymphatic drainage treatments.
