To remove signs of aging from the face like loose skin and wrinkles, many people elect to undergo rhytidectomy surgery, also known as a facelift. Patients who have come to our office for a facelift should be prepared for the rhytidectomy recovery period.
Medical sutures are used to close the incisions used in the rhytidectomy procedure. Once the incisions have had a chance to heal during rhytidectomy recovery, the sutures are typically taken out. This will occur at a follow-up appointment a week to ten days after the procedure.
Contact our office for a consultation, where you will learn more about the rhytidectomy recovery process and the surgery itself. Skilled board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kendall Peters is the perfect choice for your next facelift procedure.
