about rhytidectomy

Facelift Surgery


what is...


A facelift, medically known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to improve visible signs of aging on the face and neck. By tightening the underlying muscles, removing excess skin, and repositioning the remaining skin, a facelift can provide a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Dr. Robert Guida, a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon, specializes in personalized facelift procedures tailored to the unique needs and aesthetic goals of each patient.

Eyelid Surgery


  • Restored facial contours: A facelift can redefine the jawline, lift sagging cheeks, and smooth out deep folds around the mouth and nose.
  • Reduced wrinkles and fine lines: By tightening the skin, a facelift can minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Long-lasting results: The results of a facelift can last for many years, making it a valuable investment.
  • Natural-looking outcome: Dr. Guida's expertise ensures that each facelift procedure delivers a natural, rejuvenated appearance.

How does a Facelift Work?

Dr. Robert Guida takes a highly personalized approach to each facelift procedure, ensuring that the surgery is tailored to the individual patient's needs and goals. The surgery typically takes 2-4 hours and is performed under general anesthesia. Incisions are carefully placed along the hairline and around the ears to minimize visible scarring and achieve the most natural-looking results.

What is the recovery period for a Facelift look like?

After the facelift procedure, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which will gradually subside within 2-3 weeks. Dr. Guida's team will provide comprehensive aftercare instructions to promote a smooth recovery process. Most patients can return to work and resume normal activities within 2-4 weeks following surgery.
