Rhytidoplasty – Face Lift: A Youthful Transformation


The Benefits of a Face Lift

Are you looking for a way to turn back the hands of time and achieve a more youthful appearance? Look no further than a face lift. This transformative procedure, also known as rhytidoplasty or rhytidectomy, can remove wrinkles, sagging skin, and fatty deposits on the face and neck, giving you a rejuvenated and refreshed look.


  • “Rhytid-” comes from the Greek word for “wrinkle.”
  • “-plasty” means “molding” or “forming.”
  • “Rhytidoplasty” translates to “reshaping or remodeling of wrinkles.”
  • This term is often used interchangeably with rhytidectomy, but it may imply at times a broader range of surgical procedures to reshape or remodel the face.

At Universal Plastic Surgery in Costa Rica, we specialize in providing exceptional face lift procedures that can help you achieve your desired results. Here are some of the key benefits of choosing a face lift:

  • Youthful Appearance: A face lift can effectively tighten loose skin and muscles, resulting in a more youthful and vibrant appearance.
  • Improved Confidence: By addressing your concerns and enhancing your facial features, a face lift can boost your self-esteem and confidence.
  • Long-Lasting Results: While the aging process is natural and ongoing, the results of a face lift can last for many years, allowing you to enjoy your rejuvenated look for a long time.
