What is a Facelift?
A facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure (sometimes called a rhytidectomy) that lifts and elevates the skin on the face, making it look tighter and more youthful. The treatment aims to reduce the appearance of flabby and sagging skin, resulting in a more youthful look to the lower face and neck.
At The Langdon Center, we always carry out facelift procedures using local anesthesia in combination with a sedative.
Dr. Robert Langdon, is a Board-Certified Cosmetic Surgeon and a Board-Certified Dermatologist in Guilford, CT, and has been practicing for more than 30 years. When performing a facelift, he makes cuts around the hairline and temples towards the ear and behind the ear. He then loosens the skin from the underlying fascia layer. Next, he loosens the fascia layer from deeper attachments and then lifts the fascia layer to provide a lift to the attached skin in both the lower face and neck. The lifted fascia layer provides stable, long-term support to the overlying skin..
